  1. hey guys,
    I just overclocked my CPU from 3.00 to 3.17...I havent finished yet, I just need to know how to change my voltages to get a bit more stability before I try to go higher, this is the cooler im using in case you need to know http://www.pcshopper.com.au/product.php?productid=47573&cat=453&page=1. Is there a program that allows me to change me voltages.
    cheers

    in your bios is where change your voltages, and also where you should overclocking your cpu. What kind of cpu and motherboard do you have?

    Thanks for the reply, I was overclocking my CPU in BIOS, but my BIOS only has three options for Voltages Low, Auto, High. I moved it from Auto to High and now the CPU has stabilzed at 3.5ghz. I am happy because I have increased me speed by 500 mhz and kept the tempo below 50 C.

    I just did a superPI stability test, it passed the 32m test (IE the highest). Does this indicate that it is a stable overclock? Also my CPU temp hasn't really change since before the overclock, do you think I can get overclock further?
    cheers

    you will want to download and run a program called prime95 and run it at least 6 hours; some recommend 12 hours to ensure stability. Your motherboard doesn't allow you to change the actual values? Also what are you using to check your temps?
