Total noob, help overclock my i7-960.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm running an i7-960 at stock settings, wondering what voltage setting, memory settings and what not to get it running smoothly at 3.8ghz~4ghz, tops and memory at a nice, stable level. Not trying to go too crazy with it, just want to get some more juice out of it. System specs are pretty standard, with parts I'd imagine are common in a lot of builds.

Here's my CPU-Z validated specs:


As for a few more details:

RAM: Corsair Dominator 6gb
MOBO: EVGA X58 SLI-LE (BIOS 82)
Cooling: Asetek Liquid Cooling
Case: Silverstone Raven RV01

All bios settings are default, if anyone has a nice template for me to work with, I'd really appreciate it!

I do recommend you to do more reading before overclocking. Even if we tell you the settings, you could still get things very wrong.
