My memory timings are still set to 'Auto' at the moment.


Ive lowered my settings as below.

Turbo Ratio: 44
Additional Turbo Voltage: 0.044
CPU Offset Voltage: 0.025

4.5Ghz was unstable but 4.4 is running well on these settings.


My GPU I have OCed a little increasing the below.

Core from 1020 to 1120 (+100Mhz)
Memory from 1502 to 1652 (+150Mhz)
I had to increase the Power limit to 130% (Originally on 100%) and Temp Limit from 80c to 90c

Running at 86c with GPU and CPU at 100% load.

Not to bad so far.

Ok, finished for now.

4.4Ghz on my CPU, an extra 100Mhz on my GPU core and nearly 200Mhz on GPU mem.

Had to take myself back to defaults for a bit of time as from testing it was getting too hot; Took my heatsink off and re-applied thermal paste which appeared to make a massive difference. So today i have again tested things out and got things fairly stable i think.

I have went from the following default settings:

To the following, although i have dropped the ratio from 44 (4.4ghz) to 42 (4.2ghz) for now and will steadily increase that depending on how hot it gets in games:

Awesome! Shame about you're cooling else you could possibly push it even further, read people getting it to 4.8 with decent cooling.

Now just to decide on the graphics card to go in there now. Going to be ordered in the first 2 weeks of February so as long as the CPU doesn't melt before then, need to decide on what i'm going for!

Sorted my old GPU, lowered the CPU Offset on the bios and so far its been OK.
Ordered my new card - went for the MSI: ... 1_1&sr=8-1

Thought it would take a chance and go with MSI as oppose to Gigabyte - the G1 version i wanted was over £10 extra which i didn't feel warranted it: ... _qh_dp_hza

Both my 760GTX are MSI and I think they are solid cards so I think you pick was good.

You'll have to let me know if it works in you're rig as the 970 GTX that I had previously wouldnt boot but when I sent it back they said they had no issues.
