I have GIGABYTE EX-38 DS4 . I am trying to overclock Q9450 ( VID=1.15 ) on it .

I am little new to overclocking but know how to do it.

These are the bios options screens on this page http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1227&pageID=4507

I set everything to auto and the processor was overclocked to 3.2 . Now I want to overclock to 3.6 Ghz .

What voltages i need to increase ?

I dont understand how to change the FSB: DRAM option and what to set it to ?

On that chip, you should be able to get 3.6 on less than 1.3v. Remember to set you NB/MCH voltage to at least 1.45v too. Run your Ram at 1:1 or less until you get your overclock stable.

got the same Mobo always hit ctrl+f1 when you get int bios for advanced features, what memory do you have? I personally would just up the FSB untill the cpu says 3.6, if your fsb of that cpu is 333 you need to run the multi at B you will see the A,B,C,D multipliers on the right side in bios when you start to adjust them.A settings are 266 fsb B settings are 333 fsb C settings are 200fsb and D settings are 400 fsb-and each one is going to have like 4 different setting for your actual memory. So if your multi is 333 you would choose B and the you would choose what memory you have 533-667-800-1066. Set your (G) MCH Overvoltage control to +1.50
