I7-930 X58-UD3R to 4.0Ghz

I am currently running the following system -

i7-930
noctua nh-d14 CPU Cooler
GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard
3x2GB Corsair XM3 RAM (timings 9-9-9-24)


This is my first venture into overclocking so I need some advice. I have done some research online and used some other templates to get me started. I have overclocked currently to 3.6Ghz and stress tested using Prime95 for 10 hours and 20 passes of Linx and it seems very stable. I have been gaming on it as well with absolutely no problems.

Temps in Prime95 were about 60-61C load so I don't want to go to much higher than that. My aim is to reach 4Ghz with minimum voltage/heat.

Here are my current settings

Where do I go from here? I want to do it gradually to reach 4Ghz and will carry out regular stress testing. Any advice on what settings to change/tweek?

Thanks guys :rock:

Everything here is OK. You seems to know the procedure. But remember that for 4 Ghz OC' you will have to give more voltage to the CPU. The testing for stability is pretty much same, except for the higher temp. :)

I run a 920 at 3.8 Ghz at 1.1125 VCore 24/7/365, DRAM @ 1.5625

On 4.0 Ghz profile, I think it's 1.275 .... haven't looked in a while.

1.275 is very good voltage. I run my i7 920 D0 revision on 4.0 Ghz with 1.34 voltage on the CPU.

I have the core i7 930 at 4.0 ghz. My max temps go up to about 75C (max!) usually they don't go above 60ish. My idle temp is about 40C. I'm running 1.256 vcore 24/7/365 for almost a year now with no problems at all. I do have hyperthreading enabled. Using a prolimatech megahalems cooler on a P6x58d premium motherboard.
