Overclocking Guide for everyone

Part 1 - For Beginners
Intro, Factors and considerings to be taken before overclock!

What is overclocking?

Overclocking is a process of forcing a specific computer component to run at a higher speed (like fitting a new turbo system into your cars engine to get that boost you want). These components that can be overclocked is the CPU Processor, RAM speed and your graphics card speed.
Although overclocking can increase speed but it cannot increase memory (mainly for RAM and Graphics Card) this is virtually impossible unless you are a computer manufacturer and creator.
(WARNING: Overclocking your computer will void your warranty; so do this under your own risk and knowledge).

Why Overclock than buying?

This question has been older then the stone age, so why risk and Overclock then buying. The answer is simple really, you would only Overclock if you have the time and the money and the ability knowledge to Overclock and you buy new components if you do not have the money, the knowledge or you will not risk overclocking at all. However, in my words, I would Overclock, then buying a new piece of equipment. Because soon all that tweaking and frustration will all pay off of a new beast revving beside your desk and screen monitor ready to take on anything you throw at it. Some people overclock cheap components into something that goes greater then the high-end components out there.

Can all computers be overclocked?

Note that not all computers can be overclocked for instance laptops are completely impossible and never will be able to be overclocked, and any OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer, such as a big brands like HP, Dell, Acer, Lenovo, IBM and E Machine) computers are almost impossible to Overclock unless you clear the whole BIOS program and upgrade a compatible version of your own). Only custom made or custom bought computers can be overclocked (Although budget motherboards won‘t offer much or any overclock options at all). Some computers that you buy like the Altech NRG Series Computers, these computers have been already overclocked for the best performance your money can buy, although these computers tend to be more expensive then non-overclocked machines.

Cautions to be taken!

Overclocking a component can make that component produce more heat then before because it is forcing to make the component to run faster and going beyond the manufactured speed limit, as things tend to get faster, heat becomes more of a problem. Most enthusiasts target special cooling systems to get rid of all the heat and getting to run the component more stabiliy. If cooling circumstances are not to be taken your computer will eventually, not for long ‘overheat‘. In addition, this can destroy your computer. Since that ‘overclocking’ has been more of a hobby among gamers, enthusiasts, experts and amateurs since the last decade, manufacturers are providing the latest products for these people such as the new age of efficient cooling systems including water cooling systems and high rpm (rotations per minute) cooling fans. These products cool down your computer very efficiently while overclocking would not be an issue because your cooling fans are getting rid of all that heat. Water cooling systems have been rare for some time and are the best cooling systems you could get on any market, but they are expensive and they require a big pc case to install with heaps of ventilation. Fans: fans are getting bigger, gaining higher rpm’s and acquiring lower decibels of sound, they are the most common cooling devices of any computer. If you do want to Overclock your computer with fans as your cooling systems, I’d recommend you at least have three fans with a minimum size of 8cm, the bigger the better (One fan for the CPU, the other for the exhaust at the back and a optional fan at the front of the case to provide air into the computer itself).


Factors and the Key to overclocking:

First off, overclocking through the bios is the key to overclocking, this is because it makes the system runs more stable after the new speed, and there are more tweaks here and there in the BIOS too.
However, remember that not all motherboards can be overclocked or have overclocking features in their BIOS. Some people who are desperate into overclocking there systems but can not in the BIOS, overclock through windows itself. This is not recommended but can help your system a bit if you really want to overclock. Overclocking involves the following things:

Memory Timings
Processor FSB (Front Side Bus) Tweaking
Volt Moderations for the CPU, GPU, Northbridge and RAM
PCI Frequency Tweaks
PCI-E or AGP Frequency Tweaks
And of cause “luck”


Some other things that you have to make note of when overclocking are:

Your old heat sink and fan may not be powerful and cool enough to cool down and maintain stability over your newly overclocked CPU
You will need an overclockable motherboard with plenty of overclocking features in your BIOS
If you want to overclock, but can’t do it through the BIOS because it’s a cheap board or an OEM board.
You can use programs like Clock Generators to clock it for you through windows.
If you want to overclock to the high zones like 4GHZ + you may want to have some extra cash in your hand and a liquid cooling system. Liquid nitrogen or dry ice cooling for those aiming at higher spectrums like 5 GHZ +.
And another thing to make note of is to make sure your computer case has enough ventilation room or else everything will overheat due to heat pressure build up inside your case.

Caution and Self Regard Safety Procedures:

When overclocking, inside on your main board there are little components that sit around in various places (mostly next to your CPU) tend to go very hot when your system is being overclocked. But the main things you have to take care of near your CPU is the MOSFETS and CHOKES. The MOSFETS are little electronic components and quite a few of them too, to regulate the voltage between your CPU, RAM and Northbridge Chipset. Chokes are used to maintain voltage regulation and data transfer and somehow work together with the MOSFETS, and just like the MOSFETS they run hot too, but it is very unlikely to overheat, just make sure to never drop a metal component or drop your screwdriver on top of it because doing so will earth your computer, which will be unable to start up.
If don’t have any other options for cooling your mosfets, then its time for Modding. Like what I did, place some copper heatsinks, copper strips near the CPU area, but underside only. But anyway, these components are the most important, and there the easiest in getting damaged!

Again..if theirs any kind of mistakes or wrong rewritten words, please post back....its the only way this guide will get better!

OVERCLOCKING GUIDE FOR EVERYONE PART 2 - THE KEY SETTINGS

Part 2 - The Key settings

Ok, heres some example settings in having a good overclock...!
Your settings may not be the same, either similar or you don't have them at all....so don't worry....we will get that later on....do note that the more overclocking settings you have in your BIOS...the better the overclock will be!


Before Overclocking > The Settings:


Go into your BIOS, look for CPU, RAM Settings, e.g. my one was Advanced Settings. Here for most modern overclockable motherboard, you’ll find settings such as:

CPU FREQUENCY: This lets you choose either Automatic or Manual in most cases. If manual is chosen, Frequency adjuster comes, this would let you adjust new speed options

CPU MULTIPLIER: Mostly designed and works only on AMD FX or Intel Extreme Edition CPU’s, this option is used only on Unlocked Processors with Unlocked Multipliers, safest way to overclock, but for unlocked CPU’s only. All you need to do is adjust the multiplier to a higher value e.g. default 6 – 9, will give you a higher speed increase.

CPU FRONTSIDE BUS ADJUSTMENT: Used for adjusting the CPU’s FSB, most 133, 266, 533, 800, 1066, 1333 and 1600 > these range from 133MHZ to 1600MHZ, but also depends on what CPU your running. E.g. my one is 1066MHZ, I can increase the value to 1100MHZ, by adjusting values like the CPU MULTIPLIER. But do remember to only increase in small increments e.g. 5-10, not 20-50< this one will result in CPU crash, and you may need to reset the CMOS to get your computer to BOOT up if it doesn’t.

CPU VOLTAGE ADJUSTMENT: Most modern motherboards have this option, you can add/increase your default CPU voltage in terms like this: +0.05V, +0.08, +0.15, +0.23, +0.45, and etc. But don’t meddle around with your Voltages unless you’re a real Expert on it, and you have experienced Voltage Moderations before and that you know your way around it very, very well. Personally myself, I don’t even tamper with CPU voltage moderations anymore, due to the fact of my experiences in a dead motherboard or CPU at the end of the day.

PCI FREQUENCY: Your CPU, FSB, RAM and PCI/X/AGP frequencies are all tied together. These frequencies are all controlled by the Northbridge and once you overclock CPU, FSB, RAM, your PCI/X/AGP slots get overclocked as well. PCI slots all run at a 33.29MHZ frequency, PCI-X run at 100.1MHZ and AGP run at 66 or 88MHZ. When you overclock your CPU, these get overclocked as well but I ratio form of increase only. If you have a graphics card sitting in these slots, it means that these components bandwidth will increase, but it will increase to a limit where it won’t increase no more, when this happens, so does your CPU. But before a overclock, you can firstly adjust more just a little headroom start for your CPU. There is also no option to disable PCI frequency increase during overclocking. Its best from experience for you to set them to 100MHZ for PCI-Express slots, because you don’t want your expensive graphics card getting damaged!

PCI-X/AGP LOCK: If you don’t want your new graphics card being pushed to high, and you just want a little overclock, use this option to lock your PCI frequencies at a set value. But this option should normally be on Automatic or OFF.

PCI-X/AGP VOLTAGE: Again, I wouldn’t recommend Volt Mods to noobs and newbie’s, it should only be done by people who are experts and have experience, otherwise, do not mess around with this option or any other volt mod options! I am still unfamiliar myself with this option and it’s been reported that very few motherboards have this option!

RAM : FSB or CPU RATIO: This is ratio given to vice versa the speeds that equivalent to each other when you got for example 1066MHZ FSB CPU and a 667MHZ RAM, this is known as 1:1 ratio and it is the best ratio for overclocking par performance. For example my one is 4x1GB 667MHZ RAM and for now, got a 800MHZ FSB CPU, so the ratio would be 10:5, when I remove 2GB’s of my RAM, the ratio becomes 3:5. But these ratios always changes also prior to the RAM quality you have, so they may not always be the same even if the same setup has been used.

RAM FREQUENCY: Tells you the current speeds of your RAM.

AUTOMATIC RAM OVERCLOCK: An advanced option to let choose to set your RAM at a given overclocked value. E.g. If you have a DDR400 RAM, this option might let you choose to set that 400 to 450,550,600MHZ values. But otherwise I wouldn’t recommend using this setting because 80% of the time motherboards won’t POST due to the high increased frequency value.

RAM TIMINGS
*CAS#Latency (CL): CAS stands for Column Address Strobe or Column Address Select. It controls the amount of time in cycles between sending a reading command and the time to act on it. From the beginning of the CAS to the end of the CAS is the latency. The lower the time of these in cycles, the higher the memory performance.
2.5-3-3-6

*RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD): (Row Address Strobe/Select to Column Address Strobe/Select). Is the amount of time in cycles for issuing an active command and the read/write commands.
2.5-3-3-6

*RAS# Precharge (tRP): This is the minimum time between active commands and the read/writes of the next bank on the memory module.
2.5-3-3-6

*Cycle time (tRAS): Min RAS Active Time. The amount of time between a row being activated by precharge and deactivated. A row cannot be deactivated until tRAS has completed. The lower this is, the faster the performance, but if it is set too low, it can cause data corruption by deactivating the row too soon.
2.5-3-3-6

*Bank Cycle Time (tRC):
*Command Rate (CR):
*DRAM Idle Timer: Section under construction!
*Total CAS# (tDRAM):
*Row to Column (tRCD):

CHANNEL: Tells you whether your RAM is in Dual Channel or no Channel. For example using two 1GB modules will give you Dual Channel which increases performance then of using a single 2GB module.

RAM VOLTAGE OVERRIDE: Like the Automatic RAM Overclock option, but this lets you choose a already BIOS set voltage value. Increases your RAM voltage, other words overriding your previous voltage adjusting with a higher value voltage applied. I do not recommend this setting for anybody who is unfamiliar with it in any way and those who have no experience in voltage mods/tweaks!

RAM VOLTAGE ADJUSTMENT: Basically the same thing as the above, but some motherboards have these two options for unknown reasons.

NORTHBRIDGE VOLTAGE: Now this is a serious tweak and it can completely kill your whole computer if adjusted with improper values and changes. The Northbridge controls all main component frequencies, the CPU FSB, the RAM and the MOSFETS. Because all these components work together the Northbridge is the boss in controlling these components frequencies. When your RAM and CPU are extremely overclocked and doesn’t overclock more, it is believed that feeding more power to the Northbridge will ease the pain, but unfortunately this option has killed 2 motherboards of mine and the CPU’s, so I would never recommend this setting to anybody including myself as I’ve learnt many from it, I’d only recommend to those who are the top in the Futuremark benchmark scores! But if you really want to have a go, read more information on it, more exploring and researching and experiences from other people on other forums who have played with this adjuster would give you both results and warnings!

(NOTE: The above settings may be different in your BIOS, either you might have it, or its in elsewhere, or its written differently, either way, if your BIOS do have these settings or similar, you’re system will have some stable overclocks, as some of these settings are the most crucial in overclocking by manual in the BIOS)


Other information that could help you to with overclocks temperature monitoring. These are either in Advanced Settings or Hardware Monitor in your BIOS.


But anyways, here is what those temperature options describe:

SYSTEM/MOTHERBOARD TEMPERATURE: Tells you the temperature of your motherboard/areas.

CPU TEMPERATURE: << The name tells you everything.

NORTHBRIDGE: Some High end and expensive motherboards have this option. Tells you the temperature of your Northbridge Chipset. If your BIOS tells you a very high temperature such as 40-60’C, do not worry< these are normal temperatures and in some cases, these components get even hotter than CPU’s.

CPU FAN SPEED: Tells you the speed of the FAN on your CPU in RPM’s (Rotations per Minute)

PC FAN SPEED: the speed of the PC FAN in RPM’s (Rotations per Minute)

CASE FAN SPEED: the speed of any CASE FAN in RPM’s (Rotations per Minute)

AUXILLARY FAN SPEED: the speed of any other spare fans that you’ve got plugged into your motherboard with indicator in RPM’s (Rotations per Minute)

FAN 1 VOLTAGE: An indicator of how much power is used by your fan(s). Most are either 5V or 12V, but most others might be different in other cases. < This option includes other fans that you have displayed in your BIOS.

The best way to find all these settings without having to go through the BIOS the whole time is to actually go through your motherboard manual book. You have to get to know them well!


IMPORTANT:
Finally, I take no responsibility for what you do with the information in this guide. Overclock your hardware at your own risk, so don’t blame me at the end when your motherboard or your CPU is dead.

If theres any mistakes, please repost back, cause its the only way this guide is going to get better!


[THREAD HISTORY: default version: v1.0 now 1.1, changes: added in some RAM Timings info in and still updating!]

Re: Overclocking Guide for everyone

Ok, I promised I was going to get this thread sorted out about 2 years ago lol, but now I've got plenty of time and all my studies have been completed (just waiting for university next March) so I've got until then to complete this thread.

First off, just a little side note: Whatever you do from following this thread on your system, I am not responsible for damage, malfunction or broken components caused by the user (you) overclocking your system. Once you have read this thread you have agreed to this that you are in control of yourself and responsible for whatever actions you do from following this thread.

Before I begin off, I'm just using a second double spare system I found lying around which consists of the components already overclocked Gigabyte G31M-ES2L, 2GB DDR667 Micron D9 RAM, Pentium Dual Core E5300 and a 8800GT graphics card. The system was confirmed while ago at 4.0GHZ stable, Linpack, OCCT and various others, but was pulled out of a working system due to upgrade. Some settings shown in below photos maybe slight different to your BIOS screen, but settings and similarities should make the same and still be able to overclock your own system.

The Key to Overclocking
The BIOS is the key to where all your overclocking happens (RAM and CPU only), having a good understanding and building experience from minor overclocks and learning about how each setting and hardware relate and correspond to each other will be a key factor to having a good overclock, as you would understand which settings to adjust and how much. Do note that not all systems overclock the same, even with identical components, none can reach the same, some higher, some lower, every piece of hardware component is made the same, but have different limitations. As you might of become aware over the years (for those older and more experienced overclockers) that there has been stories how a overclock can damage your system. Due to modern technology and better hardware components and better methods used, this is usually unlikely the case, as I've mentioned above, as long as you research around, learn and play with your settings lightly, you would have the key to a great overclocked computer. Simply jumping in your BIOS and upping your settings and voltages in huge amounts is not advisable and should done so against, this is not how you overclock, and if this is what you have been doing, again Google is your best friend, plenty to learn from other users such as yourself and I. Major advantages for having a high and good overclock is your RAM, the RAM and CPU talk to each other, they are in sync, if you overclock your CPU, your RAM has to compensate for its higher frequencies, therefore it gets overclocked too, good cooling is a must in the world of overclocking, lower temperatures means greater overclocks and more stability, of course you don't want your system heating up like a furnace crashing every 5 second due to poor cooling. A good motherboard is also on the + list of any overclocking enthusiast, this would mean more settings to play with and getting the most out of your system. Another piece of component thats been lightly taken and talked about but actually plays a major role is your Power Supply Unit (PSU), you want to ensure that your PSU can maintain a stable amount of Voltage on different rails it feeds to your system, its not only having a good branded PSU for whenever you buy a graphics card, but also have one to maintain that power input and it doesn't break the power rails due to a poor PSU with cheap used inner components.

Now that you have read this and have a clear image of how overclocking works and the prerequisites of overclocking, we can start right now. ALSO do note again, I'm hereby not responsible in anyway for any damage caused by you (the user) following my guide to overclocking, you take full responsiblity once your in the BIOS










































































































Uhmmm seems pictures a bit big even taken on my phone and I think photobucket upload some pics more then twice.....this will take while to get sorted out. Bare with me guys

You probably could do it, but it would be a bad idea.
