Overclocking core i7 920 to 5 ghz with one core? Tags: CPUs Overclocking Core Intel i7 Last response: September 2, 2010 1:12 PM in Overclocking Share darkstar845 August 22, 2010 5:08:43 AM Is it possible to overclock a core i7 920 to 5 ghz with a vcore not above 1.30 volts using only one core and disabled hyperthreading. More about : overclocking core 920 ghz core henryvalz August 23, 2010 12:04:09 AM I know it's possible... But why? I mean, you could LN2 it at that temperature, or wait until it snows and do it outside... Might have to put the Vcore at 1.35, though... aznshinobi a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking August 23, 2010 11:08:13 AM -.-... I'm just going to say, if you're going to do that, it's practically the equivelent of me OCing a AMD Sempron 140 to 5ghz. Related resources How To Overclock Core i7 920 to 4.0 GHz ?

Probably closer to 1.4V than 1.3V, even with load line calibration. Once you go over 4ghz, it really starts to lose efficiency fast. vexun11 September 2, 2010 6:15:48 AM aznshinobi said:-.-...

I thought it would be a lot faster then that for single threaded apps rofl_my_waffle a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking September 2, 2010 1:12:12 PM Just because there is 1 core doesn't mean it would run on less. It just has 1/4th the chance of crashing but still required the 1.6v and some extreme cooling. The intel nehalem architecture has more instructions per clock. So it would beat out a semperon at the same clock rate. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Core i7 920 , 4.0 GHz on air?
