Windows 7: Using AS-ROCK OC Tuner for this OC?

Using AS-ROCK OC Tuner for this OC?

Hi guys,

I've just put together my first build, and she's running like a champ! (see system specs)

I've an AS-ROCK G31M-S R2.0 Motherboard, and an Intel Pentium E5500 CPU. The stock speed is 2.8GHz and I wish to OC it to 3.2GHz. Now, my question is - is the AS-ROCK OC Tuner software safe to overclock my CPU to this speed? If there is anyone with experience in this program, could you tell me what settings need changing to make the OC safe and reliable? Also, the chip is relatively cool even under load (40 degrees)

Hmm, i don't know if OC'ing that chip will benefit you in some way.. i mean, i have a E6500 @2.93GHz and it's running just fine. but since you're asking...

I think it's safe to use because it is from the same manufacturer as your Motherboard, i guess it should work ok.

Do you have an Aftermarket cooler?

Thanks for the info, Punkster!

And nope, its simply the Intel Refference cooler, but as I said, the chip runs nice and cool even under full load.

Okok i see, well, what you need to do is download the software, install it, try a little bit of overclock and test it.

If you see temperatures going higher than your "comfort ones" lower the O.C., after that, stress it with Prime95 for a couple of hours to see if the O.C. is stable and there you go.

By the way, your Motherboard is not made for overclocking, it's just a mainstream series, i'd recommend a really slight overclock to begin with and then, take it from there until you find your exact point

MSI's OC program's work well for small OC's. I'm sure AS-Rock's will be similar. The issue is still not understanding what makes for the best and most stable OC still is a mystery but it's all good as they say.

One thing to be aware of is depending on how you use the program, if you let it do auto stuff, you may find you have higher voltages then needed to achieve the same clock speeds if you did it manually. In short.... these programs tend to over-volt. What that does that mean to you.... higher temps.

This is why most overclockers avoid these programs.

No I have no experience with this particular piece of software, but I did try the equivalent (EasyTune 6) for my motherboard and "Auto" did over-volt some stuff.

Now, depending on the program, some (EasyTune 6) will also give you more control over voltages and other stuff. If that’s the case I recommend you try your hands at manual settings…. Though if you’re going to do all that, might as well use the BIOS.

My two cents.

Well, if the OC works correctly, write down the numbers, and manually set it with lower voltages.
