    Default noob needs help clocking GA-EP45-UD3R with q8400

    Hi,

    Total noob here. Just bought "Titan Thor OC" Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q8400 2.66GHz @ 3.20GHz DDR2 System= and I dont think they clocked it for me as the advert suggests. How do I find out if it is clocked and if it is isn't how do I go about clocking it?

    I have read a few other similar threads but I don't really understand them.

    Many thanks in advance Copey.

    CPU-Z can tell you bus cpu and memory clock speeds, you can find it in the programs sticky at the top of the forum.
    You may use benchmarking tools to compare performance.

    I've downloaded it and run it. Think its saying 2.6ghz. I've downloaded a .cvf file from it to my desktop. Now what? lol
    Sorry for being so rubbish and thanks for the reply

    Edit

    Core speed = 2666.3mhz
    bus speed = 333.3mhz
    rated fsb = 1333.2mhz

    Hmmm that does not look overclocked.
    No instruction came with it as for loading a BIOS profile or anything?

    No mate nothing came with it. They built it but I told them I would install the OS myself as I wanted to partition the HDD. So I think they just didnt bother clocking it for me and now they never answer the phone.

    you need to post your ram specs and current cpu voltage all in cpu-z,if you want to overclcok you have to raise the fsb but you need to post all your specs ie ram,and voltages from the bios

    just type what it tells you in cpu-z ,core voltage,fsb,multiplier,then on cpu-z click memory and tell me the timings also what speed ram do u have??? sorry im not familiar with this board or cpu but you should be able to get an easy 3.2ghz

    dram frequency = 533.2mhz
    fsb:dram = 5:8
    4 gig ddr2 dual symmetric

    core voltage of cpu = 1.072v
    bus speed = 333.3mhz
    rated fsb = 1333.2mhz

    the multiplier keeps fluctuating between 6 and 8. is this normal?

    sorry i dont know how to post anything from the bios without writing it all down on paper. i hope the above is what you were asking for.
