    Default New to Overclocking in Bios

    Hello all! When I first built my PC, I was able to use Gigabyte's ET6 to OC my components. Specifically, I just used the quick boost, and despite the negative feedback I have seen about this option, I achieved a stable, responsive unit. However, this option seems to be missing now. I have recently upgraded to a new MB and RAM, and want to OC it. However, I am not well versed in doing so in the bios. Given the hardware specs, could anyone possibly give me instructions on how to get my RAM to 1600, and my CPU up to however much I can get away with?

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80570E8400

    Can you please post a screen capture of ET6 Advanced voltage tab and MemSet main window for ET6 OC?
    When it comes to OC benchmarks are the way to tell if it's any good.
    The board is a bit OC limited, but we'll see what it can do.
    What kind of CPU cooler do you have?
    For ram to run at 1600, if it is at all possible FSB must be 400MHz or higher.
    Please rad this post. Note that your ram voltage should be different.
    Follow steps 1-4 to provide a bit more information.

    That's odd? Is that the latest version of Easytune?

    If not, or you are not sure, please download the latest from here
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ity-tools.html

    It could be normal for P43 to not have the quick boost section, not sure though as I've never seen anyone mention it.

    I have the latest version of ET. Kinda kicking myself at the moment though for not doing more research.

    Is it easytune 6, not 5?

    Ya, P43 isn't a great choice for a board to overclock with, it's meant for business to build budget email or small work machines. FSB limit around 410-420 usually too.

    To have the ram at 1600, load optimized defaults and set all required nin M.I.T BIOS (disk boot order etc.)
    Then try the following changes in M.I.T:

    Note we are only trying to set memory at 1600, CPU at default frequency.
    If this does not work try FSB 375MHz with CPU Ratio x8.0 for DDR-1500.
    What CPU cooler do you have, stock or other?

    I have a stock cooler. I am meaning to upgrade eventually, but insofar, the 5 case fans have been doing the trick.
