Intel i7-960 with Noctua NH-D14, Asus Sabertooth X58, 3 x Corsair Vengence 4gigs Overclock help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, i am pretty new to overclocking, I have this equipement:
Case: Coller Master Haf 932
Motherboar: Asus Sabertooth X58
CPU: Intel I7-960
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Memory: Corsair Vengence 3 x 4gigs
Video Card: MSI GeForce N460GTX Cyclone 1GD5

I would like if possible get the most out of the memory and the cpuand keeping it stable, as i have reed, maybe 4Ghz would be pretty stable? Can someone have any base setting to get their stable? Here is some info i have found on the memory: http://blog.corsair.com/?p=4648
If i can run the memory to1800mhz i would be really happy! And if someone have any info on a safe overclock on the video card it would beappreciated too!! thanx a lot!

Read these two guides so you know what you are doing and why.

Here are the 4.2GHz OC settings that I had on a i7 950 / Asus P6T Deluxe v2 setup, after two and a half years these settings are still going strong. Note that the ram timings are for the ram that I had, you will need to change them to the timings for your ram. You will need to stress test to make sure that you are stable. I use the OCCT CPU one hour auto test. If you core temps go over 80C as shown by Realtemp then you need to shut the stress test down and figure out why your core temps are so high. If your core temps are fine and you BSOD on OCCT or get errors on OCCT then you will need to tweak the below voltages up or down until you pass.
