What do you think I can get an i7 930 to get to?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Going to be trying to do some overclocks tomorrow if I got some time. Haven't tried doing a decent OC to my i7 yet, just got it to 4 and had it stable so didn't mess with anything.

Since it is winter now my temps are pretty low and if I open my window I can probably drop it at least another 5c (idles under 40c, max 60c).

Guess I'll shoot for 4.4 and see where that takes me, hopefully without to many errors/bsods.

Edit : Guess I will actually just try this right now and leave OCCT on during the night so I can awake to an error when I wake up for christmas

HT on or off?
Your cooler, if setup correctly should provide all the performance you need.
4.4Ghz-4.6Ghz seems attainable for your setup...might have to turn Hyperthreading off though.

On at the moment. Might take it off to go higher since I don't even use it really.

Hopefully, plus I do have 7 fans (plus H70's 2,psu,ram fans etc ).

Time to leave the window open all night and see how low these temps get.

Why did you get an ht chip if you don't use it? Like buying a race horse and cutting off half its legs because you don't race it

You could ask most of the people on this site that question. I assume you are one of the only people who should have a 980X since you use all 12 threads at all times with everything you do.

150k folding points every two days. 100% cpu 24/7? You tell me.

Or do you even know about folding?

Actually- before you assume things maybe you should consider that there are a few things about folding- ie: terminal diseases- that hit closer to home with some than others. So. Like I said before: I bought a thousand dollar processor and all the gear to go with it (except the amd card inside- I've since learned about nvidia being the folding king!!) just for folding.

Actually- I have three i7s folding now.

Problem with that?

I never said I had a problem with it, good for you. I'm not sure why you're so up in arms about that...
