How's my OC look?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So i got my new PSU today and all my problems and instabilitys went away!

Anyways here's my OC on my 920 right now. I just built this rig as the 920's took a crash with sandy bridge and heck i might as well jump on the deals! Got it clocked to 4.0 with 1.248 vcore. Highest temp after 20 runs of IBT is 71°C. Also my ram is some g.skill 1600mhz ddr3 rated for 9-9-9-24 that i have running at 8-8-8-24.

Are my gflops about right for my rig? I think i may try going for 4.2 now

Nice overclock.

Btw, you won't try to get 4.2GHz, you will!

Is that the lowest you could get your timings?

I haven't tried anything else yet. I wasn't stable at 4.0 before because of my PSU. It would just randomly shut off during the test but that's because i wasn't getting enough wattage and my PSU would shut down.

I got my new PSU installed today set ram timings to 8-8-8-24 and stress tested and it passed with flying colors! Should i try going for 7-8-7 ram timings? I like tightening timings better than i wanna raise vcore for that extra 200mhz. Im pretty sure i have a great chip though. It's a very early batch number and from what i've read the earliest chips were the best clockers.

Looks good. You could probably push to 4.4, maybe even 4.5 if you're lucky. Looks like you have a good chip from a good batch.

Now thats what i like to hear! Only thing though is im not sure if my temps will allow it Also im not sure what i can get for a bclk out of my board. I've heard these ASRock's are great boards though for overclockers. I could probably get to 4.2 with my h50 but anything after that i'll need to upgrade to real water

Most D0 i7 920 will do that overclock at those volts, so it is a decent overclocker but i wouldn't say that it is golden. Overall with good cooling or possibly the move to water cooling you can reach 4.3+ghz.

Hmm i could possibly try going lower. I've never thought about it really, i just thought it was pretty low vcore for 4.0 and decided to run it.

I definitely need to get a new case now and give this baby some water

Think i should try going for 4.2 right now or nah? Im happy with my temps and don't want to go much higher. Would i be best just trying to get 7-8-7 out of my ram? Also what should i be leaving the 4th number at? is 8-8-8-24 good? Or should i try getting 21 out of the 4th number? I noticed like a 5 gflops different going to 8-8-8-24 over 9-9-9-24.

Just push slowly, and if it can't take it, it will never take it. Every CPU has its limits. I guess you should just push it to a point before the temps get to around 80C, and then just leave it. No point upgrading your hardware even further, as your CPU probably won't go that much further as to make the upgrade worth your money.

My advice is stick with what you've got, push it to the limits of safety, and be proud of a good overclock .

Yeah true. But i'd like to go water anyways I need some new gpu's first though so i was thinking of getting some gpu's putting them under water along with my cpu with a whole new case in the future. So i should be able to OC it further later. Right now im trying to figure out if it's worth it to go for 4.2 or some tighter ram timings. If i can get some tighter ram timings stable then most likely i'll go for 4.2 next. I'll try 4.2 either way i guess
