Relatively new to overclocking

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Greetings! I am working on my second overclocked system right now. My first was a Q8300 on an Intel board with an H50. Got up to 3.2 stable, and that's not too shabby, but it was sooo simple to do. All it took was a increase in the FSB. Now, I'm fighting with my i7 2700 to find a stable OC. I will be looking and listening to all the info and advice I can absorb! Looking forward to some awesome performance from my new rig.

Thanks for the welcome! I have an Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3. It's a great mobo, I'm just trying to figure out the manual settings still.

Welcome to OCN!
In short: to overclock 2700K increase vcore to ~1.35Volt, retain every other thing auto, then increase multiplier to 40.
Done 4GHz overclock. wink.gif

No chiz. I have it at 4.4Ghz right now. Temps are low 30s idle, and mid 50s at 100% load on BOINC.
