Hi everyone.

1.Is asus maximus iii formula has a foxconn socket or not?

2.If it has then what is the maximum frequency i can reach with my i7 860 without hurting it.

thanks in advance.

Hi.

1- Yeah, it's have it.
2- The max frequency depends of the specs that u set usually the frequency isn't the problem, the problem is the voltage that u need apply to get the frequency.

P.D. What's the issue about the mobo?

just heard that foxconn sockets damage the cpu and motherboard at heavy overclocking. What does heavy overclocking mean like 4 ghz

If u take a look of the mobos sockets (AMD or Intel), many of those have Foxconn socket.

The heavy OC means that is killer OC. For the 4GHz of ur example u need a very good specs and a very good cooling system.

So if i reach 3.8 ghz will i damage my motherboard or cpu

I use zalman cnps10x performa.

what idle and load at linx temps do u recommmend at 3.8 ghz

Intel's site recommends 72.7C see here.

For the 3.8GHz u are safe if the voltage of the CPU don't pass 1.400V and the DRAM voltage is 1.65V or less.

Saint19 is completely correct on all he has told you, ESPECIALLY about a good cooling solution. That will be your major hurdle to overcome if you want a higher OC like 4.0 Ghz.

Don't worry at all about the socket, take a look at HWBOT under i7 860 and you will see the highest OC's are mostly if not all on Foxconn socket boards. It's really a non issue.
