4.5GHz Base Clock with i7-3930K on X79 Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Intel Processors Last response: January 28, 2013 5:50 PM in CPUs Share CSPhoenix January 28, 2013 5:22:54 PM I was looking over the OriginPC website when I noticed: Quote:Overclocked Intel Core i7 3930K 4.5GHz - 5.2GHz LGA 2011 Hex-Core Processor (12MB L3 Cache) I'm assuming the first value refers to the base clock. How do they raise the base clock so high if the maximum BCLK for X79 is ~107? More about : 5ghz base clock 3930k x79 anderl12 January 28, 2013 5:34:41 PM Using the multiplier.

BCLK frequency * Multiplier = Base clock CSPhoenix January 28, 2013 5:45:56 PM anderl12 said:Nop, it affects the base clock ( not sure if it affects turbo clock too, but it does affect the base clock ). BCLK frequency * Multiplier = Base clock If so how is the turbo clock calculated? anderl12 January 28, 2013 5:50:50 PM I guess turbo boost has its own settings, tho I'm not sure so you better not rely on what I'm saying now.
