I7 920 + ex58-ud4p + ocz3g1333lv2g overclock

I would like to overclock my system :
advice
ram: ocz3G1333LV2G (6GB triple channel)
mobo: EX58-UD4P
cpu: I7920
graka: Nvidea GTX 480

i have tried to set only the base clock to 166 (3.33 ghz)but it crashes in
vantage 1.02, and i saw on the net thad it should work :s

thnx for any help / advice

  1. These guides will help: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/259903-29-overclocking-benchmarking-guides

    My i7-920 CPU is OCed to 3.82 GHz on air (CM V8)
  2. i also have a CM V8 but when i go over base clock of 145 it crashes :s

    i tryed those but they dont refer to an I7 920 or X58 mobo

    Maybe i could try ur settings ?
  4. The general concepts of OC are the same.

    Start out by setting the RAM ratio to the LOWEST value. Then gradually increase the bclk while closely monitoring the temps and voltages. Do not exceed the manufacturer's recommendations.

    After a stable desired OC is achieved, check the RAM ratio and adjust accordingly. It's ok to run the RAM slightly underclocked.

    Here are my settings (i7-920, 12 GBs of Dominator RAM)
    3.82 GHz - 1.275 volts - temp 30 degs C
    1600 MHz RAM set to 1452 MHz - 1.550 volts 9-9-9-24
    Motherboard - EVGA Classified 3-way - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188048&cm_re=EVGA_motherboards-_-13-188-048-_-Product

    Please keep in mind that each set of CPU/motherboard will work differently.

    I solved stability problems by raising the CPU voltage slightly - to 1.275 volts (max permissible is 1.375 volts)

    Good luck!
  5. what are ure cpu temps under stress and idle with ure cm V8 (overclocked )?

    Idle temps around 28 degs C - load temps around 72 degs C ( i7-920 CPU is 42% OC to 3.82 GHz)
