Hey alex1234556,

First of all, welcome to OCN. It's awesome to hear that you're taking the leap into the wonderful world of overclocking. I hope that you enjoy your stay. (and let's be serious, who wouldn't enjoy going faster?)

Anyway, I invite you to read the plethora if i7 guides that are posted as stickies at the top of this very forum. If you have read that and you have an understanding on how this all works, I will be glad to help you stabilize your clock.

In order for me to do that; however, I'm going to need more information than "I pushed it to 3.2 and it didn't work."

Before we get started, I'm going to warn you off the bat that having 6 DIMMs of memory is going to be a PITA. Especially since you have a bunch of different models, assuming that all of the timings aren't exactly the same.

For starters, I want to know what you have all of these set to, at the very least:

Base clock (BCLK)
CPU Multiplier (CPU ratio)
CPU voltage (core voltage)
Uncore voltage (QPI or VTT voltage)
DRAM voltage

I would also like to know what all of your memory modules are rated (frequencies and timings) and also what you have them set to in the BIOS.

It would be most helpful if you just get a print out of every setting in the BIOS, to be honest.

Sorry for my ignorance here, I could very well be wrong but:

You have 3 different kinds of RAM in a 1366 board aka. triple channel.

And your RAM is dual channel... does dual channel RAM work as triple channel?

It's honestly not something I had considered before now.

There is no such thing as dual or triple channel memory. If you put 2 or 4 or 6 sticks in dual channel configuration, then you're running in dual channel.

Hi, as stated above, welcome to the dark side

Read throught those guides, then come back with a full suited armor(3rd party cooler) and let us take you further down this never ending road that is overclocking.

You will most certainly learn, your worse enemy at this stage would be heat and with a stock cooler, unless you're living in a really cold place, wont get you far.

Once you get that 3.2GHz stable, you'll want more, then the bugs bitten and you'll need to spend some time finding out where you want to go and what you can afford to get there.

Ive got an i7 930 and would gladly help you to push it to its limits

Cheers
