Not that board. All slots are black and not the usual Gigabyte white/blue.
So overall it sounds like my machine is pretty well put together. Good to know.
Still waiting on that CPU-Z mem screenshot...
You do you realize that Turbo only Boosts a single core to 4ghz? For apps/games that use more than two cores, it drops down.
It's pretty much a guarantee that you'd at least hit 4.4ghz with minimum effort.
BTW i use that program cause it doesn't make me figure out all the hz and bus speeds and all that. Simple GUI. Click to overclock, Reboot. lol
Bios is still better. Ram, X.M.P profile - RAM sorted.
Adjust multiplier to 40 - 4ghz, done.
Oh ... And is there anything else that i have to watch out for other than temperature ?? And what program would i use to check it, if so?
The Cpu voltage. And use CPU-Z
Got any screen shots of how i would do the multiplier thing in the BIOS? i've gotten to know it well but i do not want to mess this up, i'm sure you understand.
I used easytune and it seemed to give me issues... motherboard said it ran in to issues restore to failsafe defaults, etc... so i did that.
Then i found the setting the reduces something so that when u overclock it improves performance, sorry i dont know the name of it, exactly unless i was in the BIOS. i know its in the Tweaking section where the overclocking stuff is...
I would like to know how to use this utility
. It seems a little more advanced butits made by intel, so maybe i will have better luck.
I've also attached a screenshot of it installed on my computer. maybe you can look at it and see if it contains that other info u said need to watch out for asides from the temp, the CPU Voltage.
Thanks for your help man. At the very least, at least my temps are AWESOME with this H100.
