You have a similar board so you should be able to get similar overclocks to me. This D0 chip is a way better overclocker than my C0 i7 940.
This is all on stock H70 fans too btw. I'm going to try lowering my voltage when I change the fans and get better temps.
If i try and get my bclock to 200 i have to push my qpi/vtt up a bunch, at 1.355 i am only bclock stable up t0 183 (i ran alot of tests) and even at 181 i ended up having to bump it once with multi up. so to get 200 i would need to bump my qpi/vtt to like 1.45+ and that raises my temps way further, and as i said i have been stable on all tests. i may shoot for it again some time soon as i have 2000mhz ram and would like to run them higher .. but then again with the 8* multiplier on the ram i run at 1448 and got a 6-7-6-16 timing to work on them at 1.66.
ps Oh i orinaly had a 181*21 and had it running while i waited for my fans, and was going for a 191 or 199*21 as i know the odd numbered multi's work better but when it came down to it i found the temps where just too high (even no ht) which is when i swaped to a 22 multi and tried it out with ht and non ht and found it cooler for me, maybe 22 works decently and it was just 20 multi that was a real ***** with the 720. 22 on the 730 seems to be running great, i will let you all know if it goes funky on me.Edited by Zavia - 9/14/10 at 7:40am
