Would like some help OCing a 970 if someone wouldn't mind - Page 4

post #31 of 32
i used a multi of 21 and a bclock of 200mhz. this was the most convenient setting for me due to the fact. my RAM stayed a stock and my QPI stayed at default. I am sure you could push further than my i7 950 though thumb.gif
Was my first time OCing and not many peoples advice helped (mind you this was 2 weeks ago) so i just did the opposite of what they suggested. increased bclock instead of increasing multi
Set my goal
chose a reasonable multi
Set my bclock so it would equal stock clocks
then I stress tested with IBT at maximum for 5 loops
if stable went and upped the bclock another 10 and stress tested
Every time i was unstable i would bump the vcore slightly. or the QPI voltage slightly.
Worked out great for me.
Stable at 4.2ghz 1.28v.

Also i used Realtemp for my temps along with corsair application for my h100i. Intel burn test, Prime95, and gaming while running Prime95 at the same time is what i used to stress test
