i7 920 overclock help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Greetings all,

New to the forums. Im trying to go about succesfully overclocking my i7 920 but I just don't know where to start. Long story short, I am no longer able to get into contact with the individual who built my rig but I was able to find a sheet of paper he gave me some time ago that had all the overclocking parameters for my specific pc (I was going to mess around with it myself but gave up on it )

Anyways, my main problem is that I have all of this info however, about 80% of those numbers are mumble jumbo to me.wackosmiley.gif If anyone can help me make sense of the rest and get me off to a start on my newbie overclocking endeavors I'll gladly appreciate it!


P.S. I know these numbers are most likely inserted in the BIOs but where or how is fuzzy to me

I'll post some of my basic info if needed:

CPU: 2.67ghz

RAM: 6.2 GB

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit

Graphics: GeForce GTX 460 SE

Motherboard: Asus P6T MB

Yeah follow that guide thumb.gif I should be pretty smooth sailing up to 3,7 GHz after that it gets a bit more finicky.

Once/if you have trouble we will need to know what stepping you are running, bios settings and what ram you have.
