Hello, i am new to intel and was wondering if you guys could help me out on overclocking it!

Heres my build
X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard

G.SKILL F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM Ripjaws 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL7-8-7-24 240PIN Dual Channel i5 Memory Kit


Intel Core i7 930 D0 Stepping Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.8GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366


Coolermaster RR-920-N520-GP Hyper N520 Copper 5-HEATPIPE CPU Heatsink W/ Fan LGA1156 1366 775 AM3

I'm trying to achieve XMP 1600mhz and a decent cpu clock
would this work/?
Baseclock of 160
memory multiplier of 10
cpu clock ratio 17

Thats cpus default is 16 with a max of 17? is this correct? If XMP is selected, than you can leave the proc at default (just 'til you get the memory at good values) and select the proper xmp speed setting (1600 should be one of the profiles). Then you can increase the multiplier to where your comfortable.

It defaults 21x133=2.8ghz
ram defaults to 1066
XMP 1600 will not boot, only values under 16000mhz
i can only run it at 21x133 and 1333 values at the moment.

Is the voltage at ~1.65?


Voltage was at 1.60 at 1600mhz XMP at 8-8-8-24-40 no boot, however my ram says it willing to do 7-8-7-24-40 1.60mhz
What multiplier do i need for my cpu?
what fsb speed should it be and qpi?

is my memory compilable with this processor ?


The question is, "Is your memory compatible with your motherboard". The answer should be YES but you need to make sure the ram you purchased is on the motherboards manufacturers website (QVL) list. Did you buy the ram based off of the QVL list or did you buy it randomly?

I bought them for there performance , especial at 1600mhz @ 7-8-7-24-35-1t but did not see if its it was compatible :S, i read that it shouldn't make a difference. my cpu clocked at 3.67 183x20, ram @ 1460mhz 11-11-11-29-88 1.55volts. I can not seem clock them at 9-9-9-25-34-2t @1.60volts

Update: I checked the manufacture they say its compatible with G.SKILL F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL 4GB but mines G.SKILL F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM only difference is that mine can do 7-8-7 instead of 9-9-9

ok u have the same board and processor as me .... its very easy ...

STEP 1

go in to the place where u can change the Voltages and do with out vdroop ...

STEP 2

then raise all of the voltages to 1 amount higher then the default (ex. so if its 125.34 and the next one is 126.54 changing it to that ...)

BE SURE TO EITHER LEAVE THE RAM AT DEFAULT OR SET IT TO THE CORRECT VOLTAGES !

STEP 3

Now we can overclock

Make the memory frequency 1 lower then what you have .... if you have 2:10 - 1333 Ram ... start by setting it 2:8 at 1060 ...

PLEASE NOT WE ARE NOT GOING TO RUN YOUR RAM AT THIS SPEED.

ok now you should have the CPU CLOCK RATIO AND CPU HOST FREQUENCY

CPU CLOCK RATIO - should be at 20x and can be changed to higher or lower your overclock

CPU HOST FREQUENCY - this is the bread and butter ...

OK heres how you know what your doing .....

2:8 = 2 x Host = Processor Speed ex . 2:8 at 160 Host = 160 x 2 = 3.2

( the higher you raise the Host and ratios = higher overclock )

we have all the same processor, heatsink, and board .. if you want my exact settings i can send them too u ... i have two good ones for 3.6 and 3.8

that would be muchly appreciated :D 
got a clock at 183x20=3.67
ram at 1460mhz at 11-11-11-28-35 but i think ur settings are way better

Check your PM's ASAP.

well ok u should see what the ram and cpu speed will be in your bios ... if u have 1600 speed ram .. you will want to make your ram higher ... other wise u will have a super fast cpu with slower ram .... just lower your clock and raise the host frequency to 20 .... so i have mine with 1333 ram and i7 930 , mine core clock is 180 i believe at 2:8 ratio which is 1060 ..... but using the multipler i am actually getting an overclock of :
2.80 up to 3.6 and ram from 1333 to 1442

also since your using an i7 and your board has 6 memory slots, it may be wise to fill all slots of ram to get the trichannel feature available to you

is it worth going from dual to tri? not really I've read up reviews, however the memory compacity would be larger.

yes its definately worth going tri channel .... new egg has 24gb of 1600 speed ddr3 for $320 check under 12gb kits and get 2.... lot faster ... also recommend upgrading to corsair hydro series liquid cooler ... just got one and there amazing ....
