Help with sabertooth x58 OC setting

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

there is a setting on my Ai Oc tweaker for a i7-crazy-3.70G feature. Will this feature oc my i7 950 chip to 3.7? Do i need to change any other settings? I'm currently using the stock heatsink/fan, is this enough? will my system be stable?

I just manually changed my dram settings to 1600mhz from 1066mhz.

Thanks for the help!

Build:

Win7 Ultimate 64 bit
Evga GTX 460 SE
Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3
i7-950 3.06 GHZ
x58 Sabertooth ASUS

Hello, I would never use the BIOS to automatically OC to a certain x.x ghz. This is because your BIOS will always give your chip more voltage than it needs, this increase temperatures and also your electricity bills. It's safer to read up on how to OC yourself and do it manually, I don't have the link at the moment but just search i7 950 OC guide on google and you'll get a bunch of great guides!
