Hello all I am a complete noob to this overclocking deal. I recently purchased an I7 950 and want to overclock it to about 3.3 to 3.5 ghz. After a week of reading threads, i am still having a hard time finding a good launching point, so i figured i would reach out. I am currently running the memory on XMP so I can get the full 1600. I want to keep the 1600 memory clock. what would be a good starting point.

What cooling solution?

Watch your temps!

Have you tried to up you clock to the desired clock?

Need more info and I am happy to help

Sorry I knew missed something.

I have only experimented with the CPU level up feature on the board. I heard from a lot of people not to use that feature because it over volts everything.
by clock you mean the bclk right.

bclk correct... I highly recommend over clocking in the BIOS and not through Windows/OS envirnoment

I don't know anything about that cooler so all I can say is download RealTemp and watch you temps, to be safe don't go over 80c on full low. (you can go higher but that should be the test marker and no reason to go over that or I wouldn't want to run it other than just for benchmarks)
Can check full load and stability using Intel Burn Test or Prime95.

ok so just ramp up the bclk till i get the the fequency i want and leave everything else on auto.

For such a "small" over clock I think you will be fine bumping up the "Host Frequency (AKA QPI/BClock)" to the desired clock, while leaving the rest at auto, but you will want to change the Vcore voltage manually, up it to 1.3...v and see what happens, go plus or minus tell it is stable and temps are good.

If you want to go over that clock, say 3.5Ghz, you will want to end up setting all BIOS setting manually in order to get a solid system.
The last system I played with a 950 in it and a H50 we got it stable @ 3.8Ghz and the Rampage 3 with 1.34v and I am pretty sure everything else left auto. load temps of 65-70c, user doesn't fold so it will not matter to much. but gaming temps around 55c which is what he does do with his computer.

need more info >
Top of page, UserCP / edit signature.

A good start point is = dont increase freq until voltage has been set.
Dont use XMP or XPM , lol for memory clock.

Read your manual, google your bios , and understand what "each" thing in bios does before you try to change any values.

i have updated my system specs. I have read the manual and done some googling. Thats what led me here. Any advice would help.

ok so did you try the things I said?

it is way easier then M1 Abrams is making it out to be, overclocking is something anyone can do any more.

yes bumped up the bclk to 143 and ran p95 for 36 minutes no errors left everything else alone. did not touch the memory clock. temps idle 40- 35-38-34 full load 62-58-56-58.
