View Full Version : p5b overclocking settings info

Where would be the best place to go for information on all the settings of my nice new board so I can overclock it nice. A big fat book would be helpful. I dont want to keep bugging people in here for evry little thing.

I've got the P5B Vanillia and I am at 3.4Ghz on my E6400 (3.5 is a little too hot).
So you should be able to get your puppy nice and high with the better board :)
Just remember to disable all the advanced cpu crap, like power saving/speed step/spread spectrum/etc.
And lock your pci at 100mhz and clock at 33.3mhz

I dont suppose there are any thermal imaging pictures of the p5b around anywhere are there ? Ive got a whole bunch of little microcool heatsinks around here somewhere.

Every motherboard I have ever used (only about 6 :o)
The speaker was in the same spot, or within a cm of the some spot.
The bottom right hand corner, along with the power button, reset button, hd leds, etc..
Beeps are a good thing
