New i7 system, how to overclock? Tags: Intel Overclocking Intel i7 Last response: June 14, 2010 6:03 PM in Overclocking Share evilnat June 14, 2010 5:53:39 PM So I haven't overclocked a system since the p4 northwood days... I have tried to stay up to date with hardware, but my knowledge of overclocking the new i7 processors is essentially zero.. I am not an extreme overclocker, I am just looking for something stable to run 24/7/365 here are my main system components: asus rampage 3 extreme (x58) mobo core i7 930 (2.8ghz) corsair dominator DDR3-1600 CAS8 12gb(6x2) ram my first questions are: 1- what is the acceptable voltage range for the processor? 2- what is the acceptable heat range under load for an air-cooled CPU? 3- should I set the QPI manually, or leave it on auto? 4- should I set the ram frequency to DDR3 - 1600 or leave it on auto? after that, what other settings should I adjust?
