post #11 of 12
yea i just bought 950 within a week , i oc @ 4.2 with 1.35v core , i tried to lower to 1.325 but when i ran prime , it gaves me one core error sign, so i think newer 950 might need more vcore .

Hi, new to Overclock.net & overclocking itself. mind giving some detailed guides on how can i exactly oc my i7 950 using a RIIIE mobo, im planning to start from say 3.5GHz and work my way through after benchmarking with Prime95.

I am also planning to have my system run 24/7/365 (unless under certain circumstances).
