i7-920 d0 questions

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i know this is a bit older of a cpu but i got a a steal on a mb/cpu/ram combo. So i am doing a bit of overclocking. I read one of the guides to the 920 on here and would liek to make sure i did this correctly. I upped just the blck to 180, which put it just a bit over 3.6ghz. i did nothing else and would liek to make sure everything else that should have OC as well did so. i took a couple pics of CPUz. I did do a benchmark and pre results with passmark were 5540, after overclock it was 7460. CPUZafterclock.png 192k .png file CPUZafterclockmem.png 79k .png file

Getting a 920 up to 3.6 GHz is quite easy and does not require much fiddling with the settings. Even so you should run a stress test like prime95 to make sure the OC is stable.

If its not then you are going to need to up some of the voltages. For 3.6 GHz you probably won't need to but if you do a bit of vcore is a good start. Followed by QPI and vdimm (depending on how fast you are running your ram).

The 920 guide really is good and is a good guide line even for more modes OC's just don't set the voltages quite as high --> http://www.overclock.net/t/538439/guide-to-overclocking-the-core-i7-920-or-930-to-4-0ghz

But again like I said earlier hitting 3.6 GHz is pretty easy on most 920 d0 so there is a good chance that your CPU will do it on stock or near stock voltages.

Edit: also for future reference. Please upload your images as images and not files.

Post some more info about your machine/ put it in your Sig rig and we can tell you about your Ram

anyway, with a decent cooler the D0 stepping chips should hit 4ghz

As said above, every i7 920 should be able to do atleast 3.6ghz. Overclocking with x58 systems are different then the current haswell platform as they have the amazing invention of BCLK adjustment.

920 get very hot once you start to ramp up the clocks above 3.7 GHz. 4.0 Is not going to happen with anything but the very best Air coolers and even then things might get to hot. Personally I needed water cooling to get to 4.0 GHz with HT (hyper threading adds a good chunk of heat).

Also your sig rig is still not showing up for some reason.

the i7 920 should get to 4.0ghz on a all in one water cooler pretty easily, these chips require much more voltage than something like sandy bridge or ivy bridge so don't be alarmed if you have red guides about voltages for those and then are doing a i7 920. My i7 950 can reach 3.9ghz with like 1.32vcore but to get 4.2ghz stable i had to bump to 1.36vcore which to something like a sandy bridge would be a massive amount of voltage.

For some reason these chips prefer the multiplier to be something like 21, if you use 20 or 22 it might not work as well.
