Serious i7-950 OC probs.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Okay. i have just bought my new system, and trying to overclock my processor.

System is:
ASRock x58 xtreme3
intel core i7-950
Corsair h70 cooler
geforce 8800 gts 512 oc'ed to 775 MHz
Corsair Dominator GT 2000 MHz
corsair ssd force 120

dont know how much information you need to solve the problem. but when i oc my ram i the there's no picture after reboot. thats the first problem. And next when i oc my i7-950 in bios lowest to 3.6 - 180 freq it fail in loading win7.

If i try oc in ASRock OC Tuner i can get it up to 3.5 GHz as max. and it shows en speed felt its red and max. if i try overclock more the keyboad and mouse dosn't reply.

Someone here who know's why cause im out of ideas now.

well first welcome. Second have you read any of the guides or done some research as to how to overclock before? Because your not booting because you need more voltage which you would know if you had been reading guides or done any research as upping the voltage is like one of the fundamentals of overclocking.

Edit your system specs under user cp so we can help you easier and go here and start reading. http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ed-guides.html

Look at the i7 920 guides its the same fundamentals. I am not trying to rag on you but we here on ocn see this all the time and its like if you had just read the stickies you wouldnt have any trouble.

Welcome to OCN tho!

First off, we will need to know all your bios settings for the failed overclocks.
Yes... all. Voltages will be most important, followed by the many cpu options, then the ram options.

Second, please go to userCP (found on the upper bar of your screen), then go to edit your system (found on the left of your screen). It will give us a better idea of what you are working with without having to reference you original post every time.

Third, Welcome to OCN.

That is your problem then. When you overclock, your motherboard will not automatically raise your voltages when you have it set to auto. It will keep them at their stock "automatic" settings. You have to raise them yourself.

It would probably serve you well to read this. Found on these forums by a simple search.

My i7 950 required ~1.25v at 4.0ghz with HT off. However, your cpu voltages are not the only one you might have to worry about and all chips are not created equal. You may find your self stable at 1.23v or maybe 1.27 at 4.0ghz. the guide I linked above will really help you in overclocking your i7.
