I7 920 & P6T Delux V2 OC Help

I'm wanting to take my i7 from 2.6 to 3.5GHz.

Here are my hardware specs:

CPU: i7 920
MOBO: Asus P6T Delux V2
RAM: OCZ Plat DDR3 1600
VIDEOCARD: Radeon HD 4870 X2


Any advice for a complete newb about OC'ing would be great. I have the TurboV program. Just looking for a someone who has already done it to kinda point me.

  3. for your computer. just change bios the bclk to 180 and leave every else to auto. you will see 3.6ghz.
  4. How stable would that be? I mean would I be looking at life loss of the Proc?
  5. The following article addresses "Electromigration", or in Intel's terminology, "Processor Degradation" - http://anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/intel/showdoc.aspx?i=3251&p=6

    A few simple points:

    (1) If you're not going to be using your computer when away or asleep, then shut it down. This saves processor hours, hard drive and fan bearings, dust accumulation and electricity, which means extra beer money.

    (2) Configure a BIOS "Profile" for overclock settings, and another for stock settings.

    (3) If you don't exceed specifications, then you shouldn't break Intel's 3 year processor degradation curve.

    Core i7 specs:

    Vcore Max 1.375
    Tcase Max (CPU temp) 68c
    Tjunction (Core temp) 73c
