i7-3820 cannot go over 4.4Ghz

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

I have recently built myself a new machine:

Asrock x79 Extreme4 (latest bios update 1.8)
Intel i7-3820
G.Skill DDR3-2133 16GB (4x4) [RipjawsZ] F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH
2 x nVidia gtx560 1gb
Corsair H80 water cooling
Antec "High Current Gamer" 750w

I have made it to a stable 4.4Ghz using this awesome guide:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclocking-guide-for-sandybridge-asrock-motherboards thumb.gif

After stress tests and all my maximum CPU temps only get to 55c, so I really feel like I should try its limits!

the max CPU ratio my Bios will let me set is 44 and the guide above highly suggests to leave Host Clock Override at 100Mhz,

Any suggestions for more or less safe steps to take to take it further??


Thanks in advance guys!!

try keeping your multi at x36 and increase your BCLK to 125MHz or slowly incremnt it and you will get to 4.5GHz.. you can overclock the BCLK (Strapping) with a x79 and i7-3820 smile.gif

look at this thread for more info
