    Default 1st Time OC <Need Help>

    Setup:
    GA-EX38-DS4 (f6c-bios)
    q9450 stock (8x333) 2.66
    Corsair Dominator (2x2)4gb 1066 (5-5-5-15)
    2 Raptor 150GB-Raid 0
    Seagate Barracuda 500GB
    xfx 9800gtx
    600w psu

    I plan on overclocking my computer finally, and I was wondering how to know if its 1:1 ratio for cpu/memory and then when increasing my FSB will this continue to keep it at 1:1 or will i need to adjust the memory speed?

    Any help is much appreciated thanks.

    1:1 is not needed anymore, you can use any memory multi you like.

    2:00 memory multi is the 1:1 setting, if you just meant you were unsure, but you can use anyone you like

    Oh ok. thanks. I was thinking that it was needed. I was wondering if it would be possible to help me with settings. It seems whenever I increase my FSB it wont start I changed the voltages to auto could this be problem? Im not at my computer right now to bring up my bios setting but I will once help.

    Na, it was more important back in the 965 and previous chipsets, not so much anymore

    Yes, I can help with settings.

    Once you get to your PC give me your full current settings you are trying to use in a template from my signature and I will advise back.

    Also give me a link to your memory or the exact model name/#

    Link is broken, is it this model CMD4GX2M2A1066C5?

    That's the right RAM. and I plan going up to 400~fsb enough for 3.0-3.2ghz. Whenever I set the CPU host control to enabled so i can set the fsb it wont boot, just gets the logo screen up and shuts back off. I even checked and made the fsb the same as it came stock so 333, but still failed to load past logo. I have changed all the settings to how you had them set.

    Just got it working. Im not sure if it was due to USB being plugged in or USB legacy being ENABLED but it boots now. Just booted at 3.02Ghz going to do stress test and see the temps

    Nice to see you got things going!

    If you need help with further settings let me know or I can post 400 FSB suggested settings for you later tonight when I get back

    That would be great thanks. Im either goin to go with 375 or 400 depending on temps. Kind of offtopic for overclockin but for the onboard SATA/IDE cntrl mode should I have is as IDE? ACHI? RAID/IDE? I have 2 raptors running in raid 0 and then a 500GB seagate I just use to put my music and documents on.
