My first overclock- I7 950

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey i recently joined this forum and after doing some reading and after growing enough balls to mess with my bios, i decided to try my first over clock. feed back would be nice (remember im new to this though ). also my friend said my temps shouldnt be so high, it usually runs around 45c Idle, and around 75c or more when stressed on p95 for more than an hour


CPU Ratio Setting - 21
BCLK Frequency - 160
CPU Voltage-1.064v
DRAM Bus Voltage - 1.55

Hi, Im also new here, got the same i7 950 and mobo as you.
I'm noob to overclocking, but I would suggest getting a after market cpu cooler for your i7
People here are really helpful and Im learning alot about overclocking from people on overclock.net

Um- you haven't really asked anything. You have no money for improved cooling and you're already idling in the 40s with next to no voltage. Not leaving us a lot to work with.

Well the clocks your getting for the voltages are pretty good.Temps are pretty good too for a stock cooler.Scrape up some cash and get a better cooler.Even if you don't go any higher.

I checked pricing and around that price, I don't think any other cooler can beat the 212+. Newegg has the Dark Knight for $35 after rebate if you want that. I think it only does ~4 degrees better than the 212+ though. No comment on higher price cooler...
