Thread Starter 
heya, i am sorry to bother you fine people, but i would like to overclock my cpu but i have never done it before and my system is quite expensive to replace, so before i attempt this with no experience what so ever would anyone mind explaing how i do this, im looking for an overclock of 4 ghz if i can manage it,
i have an i7 980X witch is liquid cooled, 12 gig of ddr 3 ram and a radeon 5900 graphics card on asus P6T se motherboard and im running windows 7 64 bit, any and all help would be appreciated, as you have noticed im a bit of a noob at this so can we keep this in mind and dumb things down a little bit? thanks

thats easy with this chip..well i have a 920 chip and dunno how far this chip can do for you since its an unlocked multi chip..and Bclock OC is not that much needed..

1st off, disable all power saving feats like C1E and Speedstep..turn OFF spread spectrum..

2nd try these settings below:

Bclock =175
multi = 23
set your memory multi to 10x to get DDR3 1750
set your memory timings to 8-8-8-24-1T(1T if you have just 1 set of rams 2T if 2 sets of rams installed)
set vdimm voltage to 1.66v..
Vcore= 1.28 set LLC on
NB Core = for default is 1.1v..change it to 1.14v or 1.16v
CPU VTT = 1.28v
ICH IO = Auto
CPU PLL = Auto/normal

save then reboot..test for a few hours if stable..
