    I've got the gigabyte mb 8INXP mobo. I'm running a Intel 2.8, and corsair PC3200 DDR400 high end memory. I have loaded the Easy Tune, and want to overclock my memory and cpu I have no idea what is safe and what isn't. Does anyone out there have the 8INXP, with PC3200 memory and a Intel 2.8, and have overclocked it? If so, what did you overclock safely?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Let Easy-tune run first to find a proper startin' point for doin' the job proper like in BIOS. :devil win

    If you have the Gigabyte 8INXP, what are the overclock numbers, voltage, etc?

    I have the 2.8 Intel, what can I overclock it to?

    I have Corsair premium memory PC3200 ram, 1 gig. What can I over clock this memory to?

    What about AGP voltage overcloing? I have the Herc 9700 Pro, and use the 3DTweek to over clock the video card.

    I would think you could get 3.2 ghz+ depending on the cooling. not sure about the memory. And just increse the graphics at 5 mhz incraments until its stable and fast:thumb:

    yeah, just straight out whack the cpu up to 3 ghz, and check how it runs temperature wise, and stability.
    Then pump it up little by little till u find the sweet spot.
    then use the BIOS to change the frequency of the CPU up to what u had it on with Easy Tune.

    as for the ram, well....
    hmm. i dont have much experience with ocing ram (my mobo locks the cpu and ram together).
    so i would just either let the mobo change it with the cpu or leave it at default.
    you cant say that 3200 ram is slow.

    Thanks for all of the help. I've never gone into the overclocking world, so this is all new to me. I ran EZ Tune, but I want to be very careful before I make any changes. Therefore, I'm asking for conformation on a couple of things.

    1. You say I can turn my cpu up to 3 ghz. In EZ Tune, do you mean I should change the voltage, and that will turn up the cpu, or do I change something else? It looks like the cpu voltage is about the only thing I can change, for the cpu. I don't see a option to just turn up the cpu to 3 ghz.

    2. You say I need to go into the bios to make the final cpu changes, and that I should use the EZ Tune settings. If I change it in EZ Tune, doesn't that change it in the bios? I'm not clear as to why I need both steps.

    Sorry about this, but I want to be sure not to cook my stuff.

    I guess with the memory, I'll just try turning up the voltage a little, and see what happends.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    You need to up the front side bus(FSB) frequency and up the core voltage as well. slowly so u don't blow up:laugh:
