What is needed for O/C'ing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
OK, I've been O/C'ing for long enough I am able to do what I want, but is there a "next" step? Is there something that makes one over-clocker better than the next. I mean is there more to overclocking then just finding the max clock speed with the lowest core voltage whilst staying under the max temperature? I've really enjoyed this much, but at what point is core voltage enough? are there other voltages than QPI and core that you can change to make it easier or cooler or higher clocks? I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING!!! MWAHAH. Ok that was a little farther than I wanted but you guys know what I mean. Rep for help...thanks

well basically you shouldnt be fiddling with more than you need to. all the other pll/pch and stuff arn't really that necessary unless your pushing over 5ghz or 6ghz. if u add voltages it creates more heat so you shouldn't really be adding more than u need to. try lowering the votlage to the lowest before it becomes unstable. thats all you can do unless your in league with the extreme overclockers, ie liquid nitrogen, dry ice cooling.

The best thing one must have for OCing is patience and perseverance.

Stability,
Tweak the Ram clocks

Is there a max voltage for i7's like my 950 and I've read the max I want mine touching is 80 degree's celcius but the TjMax says 100. Where is the limit for synthetic stressing like prime95 runs?
