New to the site but I thought I'd join a couple of groups. I really love these i7's I've only managed 3.9 on my 920 but it wasn't 100% stable. I think the memory killed it. I wish they'd fix the BIOS on my mobo so I could get my memory past 1333 without random reboots.

yes msi bios is better now. with turbo multi selected, i havent gotten it to work yet (21)

The dip switches are working now for me, only 166 though, 200 is too much for this board.



the memory multi works now flawlessly afaik. we arent limited to 3,4 anymore wooo



still can only get to around 3.6 bootable, got 4ghz working for post but not much else

Made a run with the computer next to the window (drawing -10C air into the side fan) and hit 4GHz on the stock heatsink. Got a POST at 4.2 but I didn't want to run the voltage up past 1.28

Trying to make another few pushes as of late, I think the RAM/QPI is bottlenecking me more than I think. If I come across a little money I think I might spring for one of those Ultima 90's, and we'll see what this chip can do.



Right now 3.4GHz at 1.08v seems stable, on the stock HSF

lost most control of my fingers & eyes water/spasm 24/7,so pleaqe bear with me, it hurts like hell 2 type.



new 2 the group. running a q6600 @ 3.2 ghz but wanted 2 play with an i7 since my health wont allow me 2 build any more (eyes, hands) i had cpu solutions install the mobo, 6 gigs of ram. oe ofthe best oc hsf's in an antec 902 case. i love this sucker (i did install 2 vraptors raid0 2 boot & play with vista & win 7) and 2 1 tb wd black drives.

until my body work s i can only read & make notes 2 oclock when i'm able. hope its soon.

i'll try 2 contribute as much as i can.

i can tell u off the batt that running my q6600 (2.4gz @ 3.2 ghz) nxt 2 the i7-920 at stock speed 2.66 the i7 still blows the doors off the Q6600. both running vista ultimate 64 bit, both systems have the same hardware basic setup using the asus p5k-e & the p6t deluxe v2. i realy like the antec 902 case & 650 true power supplys.

both are on these units with rollers so the ole lady can move em 4 me.. i'm a computer nut so i had 2 have this one before i kick (that really would have ticked me off)

1 have 3 othe r systems i built before getting this bad & 2 laptops. my eeepc 1000 is my fav 4 troubleshooting & ref sine its so lite.



i hope everyone redingthis can decypher the mistakes hands shake so mych if i use aspell checker it really messes the msg up 2 bad 2 read.

hope 2 meet some new friends and exchange info.



thank u

Doesn't look like many posts here lately; I just joined OC and with my new i7 build thought I'd hop into this group. I picked up an i7 920 from microcenter a few months ago when they were having a system builders special. Think I got it for $229. I've not pushed it too hard, still trying to get my external aesthetics complete but I did bump it up to 3.4 GHz very stable. These things really perform like a champ.
