Core i7 930 stock cooler limit?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi

My first post in the forums, search function is disabled at this time so sorry if this has been asked. I'm curious if you think it would be safe to OC my Core i7 930 to 3ghz with it's stock cooler? I have from my googling seen people say there isn't a heating difference up to 3.5ghz is this true?

(I realise it's never smart to OC with stock and I'm buying a real cooler soon, but if there's an area of no real heat difference why not?)

As long as you dont increase Voltages you should be fine.

Why is everyone saying search is disabled? I just did a search on my iPod and it worked beautifully. I don't get it.

If my iPod can search you can search. Lol.

Can you point me in the right direction on where I can find some guides on how to start? I mean how much I should increase the settings at a time, which settings I should increase etc. I already have realtemp and prime95 etc.

As you can see by my post count I am new to this OC business, but I am willing to learn. My goal to begin with is 3.5 ghz with a decent cpu cooler and eventually 4 ghz.

These are my specs:

CASE: Define R3, No PSU - Silver Arrow

PSU: 750W Corsair TX CMPSU-750TXEU 140m

Mainboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 Intel X58 DDR3
CrossFire/SLI

CPU: Intel Core i7 930 2.80 GHz 8MB Box
130W S1366

GFX: MSI N480GTX-M2D15 - GF GTX 480 -
1.5 GB - DirectX 11

RAM: Corsair 12 GB kit DDR3 1333 Mhz

HD: Samsung 1TB SATAII/ 7200 HD103SJ

(Case has an extra fan mounted on the side from my old case, blowing air on gfx+lower end of mobo keeps them both about 10-15degree cooler than before I mounted it)

This is what I get when I try...

Search is presently disabled for maintenance. We expect this to return in the next 24 hours after we have completed essential maintenance. You could in the mean time use google search until we have completed this essential work to ensure the stability of OCN.

Thank you for your patience.
