post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello guys...ive tried to find around here an guide for overclocking the I7 990x Cpu. Unfortunately i didint find or i was to lazy to read all the pages in the forum smile.gif. So i need an advice from people who know what they are doing when is come to overclocking. My specs are :


CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU X 990 @ 3.47GHz (12 CPUs), ~3.5GHz
Motherboard : Gigabyte G1 Sniper (x58) version of bios F2-as the others are beta and i didint see any+ on upgrading it.
Memory : 24 GB in total witch contains : 1- Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 16gb
2- Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8gb (this was an upgrade but i think i did wrong as the first type is quad channel and this is dual channel.)
Graphics : Asus gtx 680
SSD : 512 samsung 550/540
PSU : Corsair AX1200I
Cooling : Koolance CPU-380I Water Block
