Intel i7-3820 Overclock

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, i'm currently at the stock speeds of 3.6 and just thinking how would i go about overclocking it to around 4 maybe 4.2 not to high, i have been looking around and nothing really is explaining the way i should go about it so any help would be gladly appreciated. I am running a P9X79 Asus motherboard the deluxe version!

Here are some guidelines you should following when overclocking your CPU:

Use the motherboard's BIOS to configure these settings.
  • For CPU voltage: Well If you want to be totally safe, I'd keep the CPU voltage under 1.35v. The max voltage for this chip recommended by Intel is 1.4v.
  • Make sure you keep your BLCK frequency at 100.00
  • And if your memory modules support XMP, then use it. Don't manually set the ram clock if it is available for you to use.
  • Well if you're aiming for 4.3 GHz It would be the core multiplier as 43x and the BLCK set to 100.00 which would be = 43 X 100 = 4300 Mhz (4.3 GHz)

Also have CPU Spread Spectrum set to disabled.

I recommend a Vcore voltage of 1.275, you may need to re-adjust the voltage to make your CPU stable, use a program such as Prime95 for stability testing and Realtemp for CPU temperature monitoring.

Keep temperatures under 80°C for 24/7 use.

Yes you should be fine, provided that you use sufficient CPU voltage in order to get the overclock stable.
