Can anyone help newbie OC system ? Really need help !

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
+Now I want to OC my system , but i have a few question still not clear , My system :
Core i7 970
RAM Mushkin 6Gb triple channel [7-8-7-20] timing, 1600mhz
EVGA mobo x58 SLI3
Corsair H100

***And my question is :

2) my goal is 4Ghz , and my current system is [ Multiplier + Turbo = 25*133 = 3317 Mhz at 1.282V . So I know that 4 Ghz would be : 25*160 =4Ghz , but i still have some function dont understand when i viewed some OC topic :
*Frequency voltage control Menu
+MCH Strap [Auto] <----- What is it ?
+CPU Uncore Freq [Auto] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+CPU Clock Skew [133] <---- what is it ?
*Voltage Control
+CPU VTT Voltage [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+CPU PLL Vcore [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+QPI PLL Vcore [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+DIMM DQ Vref [+omv] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+QPI PLL Vcore [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+IOH Vcore [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+IOH/ICH/I/O voltage [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
+ICH Vcore [Au] <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?
*CPU feature
+ QPI Freq Selection <----- what is it ,and depend on what to config ?

=> What should I do with these setting in this question 2 to get 4Ghz ? , when you correct the setting , please explain why , because I really wanna know for sure and study about it .
Many thanks

See arbalest response. He's right, you need to read the overclock guide before asking questions. Especially the questions you asked. The answers to your questions are way too extensive to answer in one post.

However, if you want to get to 4GHZ (easily...maybe not stable, though). Turn off turbo. Use the non turbo multi (I'm guessing it's 24). Leave everything else on "Auto." Usually, an odd base clock will be more stable than an even one, such as 166. So, try 167 x 24 = 4.008GHZ
