Alright so ive had this rig for a little over a year built it for school as i have a primary gaming rig. Basically I'm trying to figure out how to overclock this processor using this board. can't find anything and going into the Bio's on this board is quite lacking to say the least. Havent found anything on it being done. Another thing is my Ram is supposed to run at 1866 but the board won't let me change it to 1866 even though it can support 1866. Now I know this isnt native But is there a way to make it operate at 1866 instead of 1600?

Yes I have plenty of cooling. Yes i use arctic silver 5. Yes I do have a hyper 212 temps are not a problem. Just curious if anyone has ever done anything with this board cause the bios is confusing to me. 


anywhoo thanks for looking.

To get ram running at 1866mhz, you should use XMP in bios (or set the timings manually, whichever you prefer). Never heard of ECS motherboard (probably because they aren't being sold everywhere), you are going to want to exit the 'eyecandy' version of bios and use the normal 'blue text version' and edit multiplier and fsb by hand, on newer CPU's changing the multiplier is all that is needed to overclock, on small overclocks a voltage bump may not be needed either. If you get this far, you should overclock in small increments like 100mhz at a time and stress test it with Prime95. If its stable and temps are good, raise frequency, if it crashes, raise voltage..                    all at your own risk of course
