OC Help I7-930 asus & P6X58D Premium

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I have never overclocked before and I want to start now but I'm afraid of killing my computer so here's what I'm working with. I do know how to get around in bios but I don't know what to change

Asus P6X58D Premium mobo
Intel I7-930
Corsair XMS3 ( 3 x 2gb)
Corsair 750-Watt. 80 plus bronze certified
Cooler Master V8 cpu heatsink
Radeon 7850 2gb

I'm trying to get to 3.8ghz can someone please tell me what I have to do to reach my goal
I would greatly appreciate any advice or walkthroughs
If anyone has the same specs a picture of the bios would be awesome so I know what to change

Any help is welcome

Thank you!

This guide covers most everything. With the 930 you can use a 22x multiplier though, the 920 is 21x. Make sure to read that write up as well as any others you can find before you start randomly changing settings.

I dont know much about that cooler. What is your ambient temperature and what temp do you max out at with stock settings?
