About ready to give up oc'ing my i7 920! help! Tags: Intel i7 Overclocking Last response: April 28, 2011 12:25 AM in Overclocking Share aaron7 April 18, 2011 12:14:09 PM I know I've run my setup at just below 4GHz before without issue but lost the overclock profile when I had to do a CMOS reset after some aggressive tuning. Screenshots below of how I'm trying it now (though it won't boot, I get a BSOD). System specs: i7 920 12gb Gskill 1333 9-9-9-24 1.5-1.6v EVGA e758 motherboard w/newest BIOS Sapphire 4870 2gb (non-X2) OCZ RevoDrive 120g Any ideas?? More about : ready give ing 920 opexx April 20, 2011 10:05:05 PM raise voltage a bit.. thats my only idea. 1.375 should do it. you're also trying to bump it up a lot on a very low-end mobo. the e758 isn't really an 'overclocker' aaron7 April 20, 2011 11:00:38 PM 1.375 on the CPU Vcore right? And this board isn't good for overclocking? I know it's an older i7 board but what is it lacking?
