I7 920 @ 4Ghz

I recently just started to overclock with my i7 920, and I recently hit 4ghz on air, and I was just wondering if my temps are fine.

Idle: 34C
Load: 69-70C

I have the asus q-fan set to turbo in the bios.

Specs:

i7 920 D0
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Zalman CNPS 9900
Zalman Thermal Paste
XFX GTX 285
OCZ GameXStream 850W


I have turbo mode on in the Bios, because for some reason, the machine will not boot if the multiplier is set to 21x by default.

Further details can be found in my signature

Any suggestions for improvement?

  1. Yeah, your temps are fine.
  2. Yes, your temps are fine under load (assuming OCCT and/or P95)
  3. Looks good. 1.224V is NICE.

    How long was it under a load?
  4. ^ I agree, nice OC. Post it up in the overclocking club.
  5. How was he able to get such a low voltage?

    Well he got into windows thats an easy part. But the real question is how long is it stable for under a load???
  7. Well I had to up the voltage one more tick, and now it's at 1.232V, it goes up to 1.24V at load. It stayed stable with Prime95 for 3 hours straight and i've had no problems with my normal stuff.

  9. I need almost another .2 volts to get a stable 4 Ghz on my EX58A-UD3R Gigabyte board ;( sigh, glad my temps are the same though
  10. I turned turbo and multi thread off. These are my results. Ive been overclocking for a week now =).

    Case- NZXT M59
    Mobo- ASUS P6T SE
    Processor- Core I7 920 - Overclocked to 3.8
    RAM- 6 GB Kingston Hyper X 1600 (running at about 1555)
    Video Card- XFX HD 5850 - Overclocked (GPU 850 MHz)- (Memory 1150MHz)
    Hard Drive- Kingston SSD 64GB
    PSU- ATX 700w
    3D Mark- P18685 (GPU-17209) (CPU25160)
  11. I hate to endarger to ruin your fest, but run a 7Zip integrated benchmark, and simultaneously the Winrar one.

    Also run the ASUS temperature control tool (PCPROBE).

    It shows that the processor may bet much hotter under extreme load.

    Yeah, but what where the temps, I know they are over 70c.

    Yeah man, the UD3R (both versions) have a massive vdroop (I couldn't get to 4Ghz at all even with quite a bit more than usual levels). Hence why I switched to a P6T Deluxe v2.

    PC Probe is known to be inaccurate and in some cases, by as much as +/- 10C.

    For accurate results, use RealTemp.
