ok.. first of all, i've been out of game for long time im trying to overclock i7 920 with P6TD Deluxe but things seems to have changed. My last overclock was for AMD 64 4400+ x2 so i've got couple of questions as things feel difference while overclocking.
First of, i changed the auto to manual and edited to gain 2.66 standard
Multiplier = x13
Bus = 199
qpi = auto at 3598
cpu v = auto at 1.336
and the temp shows 43c at idle
i havent touched ram apart from disabing auto and changing it to ddr3 1666.
i use Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme Rev.C as a cooler and 120 antec fan. 43c idle seem a little high and i havent even overclocked yet. could you please give me a little help on what i should do, whats the safe temp and voltage?
or maybe a little boost to 3.6? im rusty
You can get away with 1.20 volts or less @ 3.8. You should also try to leave HT and Turbo on and go with x21 multi. Your idle temp will depend on you ambient temp. If your at 70F inside you should idle at 34 - 38c. My highs hit 64c. The True is a mighty good cooler and will get you to 4.0 on air but you have to keep your ambient down.
