I have read all the articles concerning my CPU and Motherboard (and they are a lot) but none of them are able to help me so please don't give me a link to another page
As my title says, I have:
Intel Desktop Board DX58SO (Not the Extreme Edition)
Power Supply - SilverStone STRIDER SERIES 1000Watts
i7 920 2.67GHz (with Corsair Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler)
4 X 1GB RAM at 1333MHz (Princeton Jaguar - Triple Channel with Heatsink) 8-8-8-20
I just want to overclock my CPU at 3.6GHz or 3.8GHz if possible (because I saw in some threats that in order to overclock more that 3.6GHz it is advised to have a quicker frequency than 1333MHz of RAM) By the way is that true?
Also in another threat someone posted charts that indicate, that in order to make an i7 920 overclock you require to have at least 6GB of RAM (I only have 4GB and I cannot understand the reason, so its somewhat confusing because I didn't see this in other threats and that is why I don't wish you to point me another link for the solution) Is this true by the way?
And last but not least I would also like to overclock my RAM (If possible of course) I know my way around PC's but I'm the leader of all newbies in overclocking.
Please help me... step by step if possible. Thank you
I have the Corsair Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler. Its pretty good actually, I have never seen my temperatures go above 44c even in games... I also have a very good case/air flow which is the Thermaltake Full Tower Element V Professional
