Asus Rampage IV Formula + i7 3930k + 2133Mhz ram

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm new to the forum so hi to everyone! smile.gif

I have an Asus RIVF board with an i7 3930k and a G.Skill Ares 4X4GB 2133Mhz ram kit.
CPU cooling is taken care of by a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme.
I am totally new to OCing, but I have been in computers for a very long time.
I would like to OC the processor and also run the ram at its rated frequency.
I want a setup that will be stable, I am not OCing for the fun of OCing, just to get some extra performance from my hardware.
I would also like to not hurt the life expectancy of the CPU.

What should I do? Where should I start?

Thank you!

Hi eladla,

I'm in the same boat as you. I just built a rig for the first time about a week ago. Our main components are the same except I have the RipjawsZ 1600 memory.

I OC'd mine to 4.25 changing three settings in the BIOS.
Here is an article in the ROG forums I used as a guide.
http://rog.asus.com/51072012/rampage-iv-motherboards/asus-rampage-iv-extreme-easy-overclocking-guide/

I'm using the latest BIOS (3602) so it's a little different than what is shown in the article.
My system has been stable with Gaming & internet use. I'll try and post some screen shots when I get home.





Of course you would change your memory speed to what you have and not 16666.
