post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was looking into getting the most out of my pc and I starting looking around forums to overclock and I just dont know what Im doing and would like some step by step help on what to do pretty much. Here are some specs that I am using. If there is anything else you need to know about my system specs let me know. Just a newbie looking for some help.

CPU: i7 950
RAM: Corsair Dominator 6GB TR3X6G1600C8D
MOBO: EVGA X58 FTW3
CPU Cooler: Corsair H80
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 5870
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V

You do it by messing up in the BIOS.
Either increasing your CPU multiplier or FSB, your clocks will rise.

This guy has the same CPU and mobo as yours, so it may help.

Good luck

Ok I have my cpu at 3.8ghz with my vcore at 2.5v and it is stable how do I get my ram to 1600mhz . If I go any higher with my vcore my temp shoots up when I run stress test with prime 95 its chillin at 60c under load but when I go any higher with the vcore I get fatal error's in prime 95 and my cpu temp will go in the low 70c .

Ok I have a stable overclock at 3.7 ghz and my vcore at 2.6 but If I go any higher with my vcore my cpu load temps will go from 60c to 70c + my load temps right now with these settings never go above 60c my memory is set to 1333mhz but I want to get to 1600mhz with my corsair dominator's and if i set my memory freq higher my freq goes to like 1900mhz do i keep it at 1333mhz and set the mch strap to 1600mhz?

Try a higher block but lower CPU multiplier.

Maybe something like:

160MHz BClock
2:10 memory ratio (1600MHz)
24x CPU Multiplier (3.8GHz)

I cant go any higher then my 3.7ghz its almost 3.8ghz but high 3.7ghz because I am stable at 2.6 Vcore and if I go any higher with my Vcore my cpu temp will shoot up in the 70C's

Ryzone,

follow this thread. in less than hour i think he got his at 4Ghz. the 950 would take less volts most of the time to reach 4.
