If you just simply ^lOOk^ ^up^ at the top of this Forum, you will see "Guides" which have a heavy red arrow and bold fonts. These are "Stickies", which were written by Forum members such as myself, and were voted to become permenently "Stuck" or attached to the top of the Forum, so as to provide reference material and assistance for everyone's ongoing benefit. Members are expected to read them before posting questions, which have most likely already been answered within the information contained in the Sticky, thereby making it unecessary to post repetitive questions.

If you still can't resolve your issues after making an honest effort to study the Stickies, then it's fine to post a question asking for help. The more details you provide concerning your rig's configuration and the exact nature of the problem, the easier it will be for us to help you.

Welcome aboard!

Comp :sol:

Hej Goodlockin

Mobo : Gygabite GA-X48-DQ6

As you can see, systems are nearly similar.
I got mine to 3.6 @ easy. Not with the stock-cooler!!!
Get som serius cooling device before oc starts, on your cpu.
Do your overclock in bios!
Happy days

Yeah make sure you have a decent cooler.
Often the install requires you remove the motherboard (fun fun). Grab some Arctic Silver 5 too if you can (not a major but usually gives an extra couple of degrees over the free stuff you get with heatsinks normally).

i have posted another thread on memory not to overload you guys with issues. but i am still trying to overclock. my last bump is my MIT DDR2 overvoltage control. it flashed when i changed my settings and my core voltage according to a guide a followed of toms hardware where i clock it to 3.4 not 3.2 i thought if the pricible is the same then why not clock it higher. still i get a flashing message saying the ddr2 voltage has not changed, when i try to change it there are some options in white, pink and red(red is flashing) im guessing the ones in red are the ones i dont select, but im not sure. any info on that problem. i believe its something to do with my mobo, but maybe its not just my mobo?

Set the RAM to it's rated voltage, it's probably printed on the side of it.
I never go over this, at least not by much, because it can kill the RAM. So if it's DDR2-1066 @ 2.1V then set it to 2.1V for example.

The colours on the voltage screens are simply to show you which values they think are safe. e.g. if I set my Vcore to 1.5V or above it goes red.
