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... m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources Core I7 920 4.5Ghz watercooled - Forum How To Overclock Core i7 920 to 4.0GHz?

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. m 0 l vexun11 September 2, 2010 6:15:48 AM aznshinobi said:-.-...

I thought it would be a lot faster then that for single threaded apps m 0 l 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
