Just finished catching up on this long thread
I am a proud owner of a Evga x58 3x/SLI with a Intel i7 930 (2.8ghz). Currently I'm running two GTX 280 OC video cards in SLI and 6gb of Patriot Viper Ram. Operating system Win 7 (64bit). Been drooling for a GTX 480 SuperClocked perhaps in the future.
Probably the best computer I've ever owned so far. Was real happy that my bro-in-law talked me into the EVGA x58 board. Very much worth the money IMO.
I'm interested in OC'in to a low 3.4ghz. Just like to give the PC a little extra beef. Perhaps get a game to run a few more fps or bench-up a bit on 3d Mark Vantage. I've seen some template settings from other members. I've OC'ed before on Asus boards, but it's been a while because I've become complacent and less willing to tinker with setttings.
Can anyone suggest a safe template of settings to get me started in the bios. I do have pretty good air cooling in the case. I have a Cooler Master Tower (HAF) and Roswell 1000W PW Supply. I used the Eleet Tuning Utility just to mess around and moved up to 3.0ghz just on the QPI setting. Everything ran well.
Thanks for any advice guys. Hope to hear from you.
