Need help to overclock my system!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have a i7 950 1366 running on a Rampage 3 extreme board. It's currently overclock to 4015.07 Ghz. My CPU voltage is 1.225v is this too high or too low? The CPU is being cooled by a H70 and the temps are around 38-41C. I just started learning how to overclock and this computer is only about 1 week old. Any addition information you may need just ask. Thanks for any help.

That voltage, along with your temps, is fine. With your board and proc you may as well shoot for 4.1-4.2.

yeah i tried to shoot for 4.5 I got it to start and then BSOD after I started the stress test.... I don't think my H70 can even keep up with cooling it down at that speed. Also how do I know what needs to be set up or down voltage wise? I'm just shooting in the dark. 4.1 or 4.2 sounds like a good place to be with the cooler I have tho.

Somebody please correct me if I am wrong because I am still learning it also, but from what I understand you start with say 3.25 then test it with voltage at stock and if it fails you raise the voltage a little bit then test it again and if it fails again raise the voltage a notch or two and so on until it is stable at 3.25. Then you raise 3.25 to maybe 3.50 and test that repeating the above process until you have it clocked to where you want it.

Don't go by that until somebody confirms it because I am not sure if it is 100% right or not...

Sorry for the double post
