i7 975 overclock and memory choice - Page 2  

post #11 of 16
Mhm if your going with anything lower then 2000mhz get some tight mushkin ram, and if you overclock all you have to do is just lossen timings a bit, probally still be tighter timing then other ram tho, and yes 12gb might hinder ur overclocking by 100-200 mhz but eh with a good cooler it wont matter much. Althought you only need 12gb if ur gona have like video editing up watching a movie game in backround and music on lol while talking on msn, but its a personal choice i guess

I've ordered Mushkin. 6GB. Later I can run 12GB if needed.

I disagree you should run as much memory as you can afford I had 6 gigs in my sabertooth and found another 6 gigs on eBay for 50 bucks same version so I jumped at the chance to pick up 6 more gigs and since I am using a extream chip I dont have to push the memory like folks that have locked CPUs and in the past the dominator memory have always Playied nice together even over clocking

Hi, I have ben looking for a guide for Overclocking my Sabertooth X58 with I7 975 Extream. I know that overclocking with an unlocked chip is quite different the chip at 3.3 GHZ now and I am looking to hit about 4.2 to 4.3 I just want to take to easy overclock and not try to squeeze every last drop so I want to use a minimal CPU voltage bump My memory has 8*8*8-24. I was going to loosen that up to 10-10-10-26 I remember there being something odd about how you have to overclock the I7 1333. I was hoping to bump the multiplier like by 2and try to run my dominators at about 1800. But I know there was something with the voltage on these chipsets that made it easy to cook a chip but it been about 4 years since I messed with x58 chipset and 1333 socket if someone could point me to a nice guide the would refresh my memory I would greatly appreciate it.

TIA

Well, I would have upgraded this system for my wife but she would not let upgrade it until I found another Extream chip. and since I had the brand new board in my closet and got the CPU cheap and the same with the dominator memory I got 6 more gigs for 50 Bucks and I got the 17 975 for like 60$. I only have 110 in it so far. She also only plays online browser games and LOTRO so for what she does with an SSD drive and the I7 cranked up to 4.2GHZ and run the memory at about 1800 and I am going to put a GTX 750 TI super clocked in it. I think it will do all she needs, at least, it won't be as bad as those guy in LOTRO that won't use anything newer than XP because that's the best LOL! I thnk this thing will crush the stuff she does and it should run Win 10 No Problem. So the machine will match its purpose and use money has been tight as I am disabled. I was building custom Harley Davidsons out of my garage and making good money back 5 years ago before the banks crashed the economy and got 700 billion for free and my 15,000 to 25,000 custom built Harleys had to sell for 7,000 to 10,000 at best nobody gave me a 100,000 grand and said sorry for my luck to make up what I lost on their bad loans. So I am lucky I can do what I am doing nowadays, at least, I got caught up on my back taxes so they don't take my house. So we are living on a tight budget nowadays and have to make due with what we can swing.
