i7 930 on the way

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
so i finally decided to go into the 1366 socket after my 9550 at 4.25. I am doing alot of encoding and going to school for computer science after 13 years in the culinary industry so i wanted something more. dont get me wrong i am most likely not gonna sell my 9550 as it is a monster. my questions are is it really that much easier to oc a 1366? can someone explain some of it to me or direct a link.

i still haven't decided on a board yet maybe you can help me with that too, but i do know that the 930 is suppose to be a huge clocker any suggestions?

On my old MSI Eclipse SLI i've just rised BCLK (200x20)and voltages (1.29v with HT on) (to get 4GHz) and that was all o.O Don't know maybe it was a really good CPU

Never OC-ed an 9550.. even though I do have one sitting in my older rig and I'm itching to do it. However, the i7 900s are pretty easy to OC. At lower clocks you only need to play around with vcore, at higher clocks you should play with pretty much all the voltage settings. It's somewhat hard to explain here, but there's a great guide on OCN !

Should have waited for Sandybridge.

no sandy bridge and last i knew it was out. and i have read alot about the raw power that these chips have even consuming more power so what. electricity is kinda cheap i am gonna use my 9550 as a server and primary use my i7 and 460's (maybe a downgrade to two newer vid cards) to run a nvidia 3d setup at a decent resolution for gaming and home theater on a big dumb*** 55in led i am thinking the i7 will give me a good longevity. i have also heard bout people killing the i7s with to high of a blck? what can you tell me about this? what the tjmax and good oc'd temp numbers on air and water
