have fun, take it slow, and make sure you have a good cooler... and BUS speed is not typically used like it was. At least, not that I have seen while OCing my i5
Voltage increases might also be needed to attain a higher FSB. I found that often leaving the voltages in auto didnt work the best all the time.
I was also on a water cooled loop, with the CPU, NB/SB, and MOSFETS all cooled with water.
This is kinda fun. Thanks again for your input. There is an overwhelming number of guides out there and it helps to get personnel suggestions.
Also, the guides did not mention increasing voltage in relation to bus speed. Will a v increase help with a bus increase? Which v increase do I use?
Its a stability issue. If you can boot... run a stress test. If you crash, up the voltage. I do not know the MAX voltage so be carefult to research that first
