Nice 24/7 i7-960 OC @ 4.3Ghz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Finally got an OC that I can live with on my 960. I have been experimenting with various clock freqs. and 4.3Ghz seems to work best for me 24/7. I had her up to 4.4Ghz but couldn't get it stable in Prime95. Any suggetions?

I know there isn't a-lot of i7-960 info out there so here's my setup. Hope it helps someone.

37C IDLE Max. 64C after Prime 95 for 30min.

Are you going up to 4.4Ghz by upping the bclk? If so it is likely the memory holding you back, 16gb makes the IMC work a lot harder & it probably needs more qpi/vtt voltage.

Yes I was upping the clock. I'll give your suggestion a go today after work. What parameters should I stay within on this voltage? Thanks.

Good on you.

I can't even get my system stable past 4 GHz.
