    Default Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

    I am about to SLI (two way) EVGA 480's. I read on another thread that my CPU needs to be overclocked to keep up with the dual 480's? Someone said 4Ghz would be fine.

    I am currently OC'ed at 3.20Ghz, still waiting for the artic silver to bond really well (200) hours on and 200 hours off to bond completely. I've taken it to 3.6 but I get a lot of temps in the sixties at load. Sixty is safe, but I am just being cautious. I never use software to overclock. I do it through BIOS, I never trust the n00b overclocking. I'd rather set myself the multipliers and voltages. Do you think 3.6Ghz would suffice?

    try those for 3.8ghz or just adjust bclk for 3.6ghz and keep voltages the same,see how the temps are with those settings

    for 3.612ghz use 21x172 bclk,you have 930 chip? if so disable intel turbo boost,21x usually uses less cpu voltage than 22x

    ram will be 8x and run at 1376mhz due to a 172 bclk,the higher/lower affects ram speed too

    its up to you,try 21x cpu multi or 23x

    23x160=3.680mhz
    10x ram multi = 1600mhz, i think this will be better
