    When I run CPU-Z,my core#0 temp is at 35C while core#1 temp is at 39C on idle but when I run orthos,my core#0 and core#1 temp raise to 46C(the maximum from my settings).So is my overclock setting good?Is there anything that I need to change so my temp is not around 35C something because my CPU cooler is scythe mugen and I should be able to get around 25C something.Anyone can help me please?

    It's all about tweaking a getting what you can get out of your processor, memory and board, and video card while staying stable. Looks like you are on the right track. MAXtemp/pwr=72.4C @ 65W. I don't see a problem. 25C, I am not sure about with a non-liquid cooled processor.

    Good Luck and have fun.

    Ok,so I just tried to OC my cpu to 4.0Ghz and run orthos for 10 min to see my systems is stable or not and it seems my system works very stable.idle temp shows that core#0 is at 34-37C while core#1 is at 39C.when I run orthos,both of the core's temp rise to 49-51C.and then when I run speedFan,it shows a picture of fire on my core0 and core1 when the temp reach 50C.Is everything ok?I didn run prime95 to test my memory too.After run for around 15min,everything seems ok and stable.so what do you think guys?can anyone please help me?

    Did you read the guide? It is for your board >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...g-guide-26112/

    Not trying to not help you, but you have a board that has a very nice guide stickied here and seems like you want to learn so that is a very good place to start.

    Read this as well >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/memo...vs-bios-27283/

    Sure I could give you some settings but that would not help you learn anything.

    Let me know if you still get no where and I will help you along, but keep in mind you do want to learn so it is best to read as much as you can before you try things.

    There is one thing that I want to ask.
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [102]
    In your guide,you put 102 on PCI Express Frequency but I did some research and it seems people put 100 on that.What is the difference?

    100-105 is fine. The main thing is you want it at 100 manually set, if you leave it in Auto it will get overclocked with your FSB is why that is mentioned.

    100 will be fine for you, the only time you need 101-110+ is if you have having major issues at 500+ FSB

    If you need some more help, I will post you some suggested settings when I get back tonight.

    If you search for your board or a X48-DS4 you will for sure find some settings as I used to post many settings for this board

    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.2V - +0.3V]
    I saw it from one of thread about X48-DS4 OC and you posted that +0.2V-+0.3V for 4GB RAM right?I'm using OCZ Reaper PC2-8500 1066Mhz with 2x2GB dual channel kit.So do I have to put +0.2v - +0.3v too?coz I'm putting +0.100v for that.
