Re: OC newb questions... CPU-NB and DDR/DRAM
First of all with this motherboard, everything is based off of HTT frequency, but Asus names it FSB Frequency. I read that the board's HT link speed must be the same or less than the NB speed or it won't post.
Just lower the processor multi to like 12 and up the FSB frequency to something like 267. And up the DDR voltage to something like 2.0
And disable Auto Xpress, with that it will overclock the PCI-E bus and can cause the system to crash when overclocking.
You can also set Northbridge Voltage to manual, then you are able to increase the the HyperTransport Voltage when you want to overclock. And that helps a lot with BE processors.
Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
