Hey. I have a problem and need help for overclocking my intel i7 930

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm just new member to this site. um yeah hello :]
I am not really good at English. I just moved to California, US from South Korea last 2008. Hope you can still understand my grammars. Thanks for understanding.

So...

I have one problem is that why I cannot overclock my intel i7 930 to 4.0 GHz from 2.8 GHz.

It happened to me. When I tried to oc it to 4.0 GHz and saved the changes. But it crashed and appeared with blue error screen. So, I changed it lower to 3.8 GHz. But it still crashed and appeared the same blue screen. I kept setting it lower and finally my pc became stable at 3.6 GHz. It does work in everything very well.

But I noticed other people had overclocked the same intel i7 930 from this overclock.net. They did successfully oc it up to 4.0 GHz. I don't understand why my pc is unstable for ocing intel i7 930 up to 4.0 GHz.

I would be appreciated if anyone of you who is willing to explain and teach me how to oc it correctly.

OK. Here's my parts in list.

- Intel i7 930 at stock 2.8 GHZ, OC at 3.6 GHz currently.
- Asus Sabertooth X58
- Corsair H70
- Kingston HyperX 6GB at 1600 MHz (OC currently too)
- 2 x EVGA GTX 570 in SLi mode
- SSD OCZ Colossus series 120GB for OS
- HD Westen Digital Caviar Green 1TB for regular data
- Antec 850WATT Truepower Quattro
- HAF 932 case with 10 fans

Hope you can help me for how to oc it up to 4 GHz in right steps!

A couple of things.

When you bump up your bclock notice that your DRAM frequency also increases. You may need to lower that otherwise it will be the RAM that is causing your crashing.

Bump up your voltage (vcore) to about 1.2. For 4.0 that's about what you'll need- might be able to trim after. If you still have trouble booting, we'll bump that up. Watch out for error codes on your bsod 101 and 124... those are the most common in overclocking. Let us know what comes up and we'll advise. I assume you're on stock voltage because 3.6 is what many seem to be able to do without touching anything.

The SLI cards might require a boost in your IOH... but I think auto should cover it for now. As we dial in your voltage you might see that adjusted to 1.15.

Once you get those things adjusted, you can take some other things off auto and make your OC more efficient. A lot of the other settings are more for "adjusting down" the voltages necessary for stability.

Also, I suggest for now at least that you disable your speed step and turbo mode. They can make things a bit unstable in terms of power requirements. You might be stable at 4, but when turbo kicks in at 4.2 or whatever you may crash. Just turn those off. There are other speed step and power saving features many turn off. We can touch on those later.

hope this is a start

Watch your temps and let us know how they are.

PS: 10 fans on a 932? Yikes.
