Overclocking Xeon 5660 to replace I7-930 Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I never used a Xeon before. Is there anything I should know in terms of Overcclocking? Right now I am using an I7-930 at 4.1 to 4.4ghz. I read here:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1461359/xeon-x5660-x58-full-review-comparison-to-x79-high-end-cpus-and-xeon-l5639-benchmarks-inside-longest-post-ever/0_70

That the Xeon performs a lot better. Would love anyones input in how I should Overclock this babey :-)

These are my settings right now:
