Need to know exact settings for overclocking.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, my computer isn't totally built yet, i still have the processor and RAM to buy. but here are all the components.

Intel Core i7 950 Quad Core Processor LGA1366

Corsair Dominator GT 12GB 3X4GB DDR3-2000 CL9-10-9-27 Intel XMP Triple Channel Memory Kit W/ Fan

(2) Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3 6GB/S 7200RPM 64MB Cache 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM In Raid zero config

Cooler master V8 Cpu cooler

Nvidia 480 made by EVGA superclocked

Antec 1200 case

Corsair 750 Watt power supply

Plextor PX-880SA CD drive

Creative X-FI Sound blaster PC-IE

So their it is, my build that i can't wait to use. I am looking forward to overclocking my CPU to 4.0-4.1 Ghz and was wondering what the exact config is to get it their. i'm hoping someone else has close to the same build as mine.

ALSO! if you would like to give me any other tips on what else i can do. what other things i can change in my build, it would be much appreciated. im mostly going to be using this for high quality gaming and allot of video related things. THANKS GUYS! hope to hear from you soon!

There are a lot of factors to take into account when overclocking, so nobody can tell you exactly what to do. You just have to increase the frequency in small increments. When you run into instability, you have to increase the voltage and then continue with the process.
