Newbie Ready to Over Clock ASROCK X58 Extreme i7-920 Tags: Intel Intel i7 Overclocking Product Last response: January 13, 2010 10:16 AM in Overclocking Share Eboon December 29, 2009 2:59:05 AM I just finished putting together my i7-920 build and am ready to try my hand at some over clocking of the setup. Here is what I have: Processor: i7-920 (D0 Stepping) MOBO: ASROCK X58 Extreme http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Memory: Patriot Viper Tri Channel 6GB PC10666 DDR3 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper N520 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Case: Cooler Master CM690 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro Power Supply - 500-Watt http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Video: XFX Radeon HD 4670 Video Card - 1GB GDDR2, PCI Express 2.0 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... I am not looking to do any form of extreme over clock on this thing - just something around 3.6 or so. Based on my hardware do you think I have a good chance of achieving a moderate level of over clocking? Are there profiles that other folks have shared that I can load via the OC DNA application that is provided with this motherboard? I am pretty much a complete noob at over clocking - looking for specifics for my BIOS and any hints and tips. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

I found a nice setup for stability @ 3.36ghz. I am testing 3.78 right now. I made a thread that should show up on the first page of my 3.36ghz stable settings. m 0 l jsc a b å Intel a c 197 K Overclocking January 13, 2010 10:16:52 AM Overshocked's i7 Overclocking Guide (LGA1366) http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253365-29-core-overcl... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
