How do I overclock my INtel i7 six core???? + more q's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm new to this site.
i was wondering i have an i7 six core processor I haven't installed it yet....

First off
If I was to water-cool it, which i want to do, would it keep it very cool and/or would it do better or worse.

Second of all, If i was to overclock it, what would be the specs, how would I do it and would the water-cooling be able to take it.

Thank you ------------------------------------------------------------

First off don't go crazy and just crank up the volts for the OC.

Read this http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...920-930-a.html "Don't use the Dirty method"

You should water cool, but give us an idea of what you are going to watercool

Just the CPU, the CPU and the GPU, the cpu the Gpu and the NB?

Watercooling a hdd is pointless IMO, I would just get a block and watercool the gpu. So you will need a 120.3(360) rad a CPU block and a gpu block plus accessories. Why do u think it's impossible to WC it. Ofcourse u can.
