Overclocking i7 920 4.4ghz+

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

Need some help getting a stable overclock on my water cooled i7 920.
4.4ghz
Cpu ratio: 21
Cpu volt: 1.45
PLL: 1.92
QPI: 1.5
Dram bus: 1.66

I also turned off all intel power saving features, and HT off.
At this stage windows boots up fine, but I get an error in prime 95 and linx after 15 seconds. So just turn up the cpu volt? idle temps: 32-38C. Load temps 15 seconds after linx starts is 59-63C, then linx says error.

Also wondering if my RAM is a problem since it's only Corsair 1600mhz. Somone told me to get 2000mhz RAM.

I found the problem to be that I had set the memory too high. I changed it down a bit and after an hour of prime 95 @ 4.4ghz, the temps are 59-66C. Idle is 34-39C
