Overclocking i7 920 on Asus p6t Deluxe v2

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Overclockers
I would really like some help here, as I am a noob on this subject :b
I need to overclock my i7 920 2.66 Ghz on my Asus P6T Deluxe v2
I have 9 GB of RAM 6 GB Kindston 1600 Mhz PC12800
and 3 GB of A-Data RAM 1600 Mhz PC12800

I would like (if possible) if someone would guide me in overclocking my CPU without wasting my CPU biggrin.gif

By the way I am using a Fan from Scythe I can take a picture if you´d like smile.gif

Kind Regards Napster2008

Click Me I'm a Good Guide

There are loads of guides out there but this is a good one.

I normally dont like mixing different sets of RAM, but you should be ok as long as you manually enter the same timings for all. I personally would not use the A-Data stuff as 6GB is plenty for most people.

What stepping chip you got? If its D0 stepping chip you should easily be able to get to 4GHz with a good CPU cooler. Download CPU-Z to find out if you don't know already.

Hey there, just wanted to give you my specs and my overclock because I have the same board as you and I am running stable 3.8 that never Prim95s higher than 70. Heres the specs:
i7 920 C0
Asus P6t Deluxe v2
6 gig OCZ 1600 DDR3
Cogage TRU cooler

Here is what I have for my overclock, took me a few days and a lot of bumping and dropping and Prime95ing to get this perfect:
CPU Ratio: 20
BClk Frew: 190
DDR: 1523
UCLK Freq: 3047
QPI: 6857

CPU Volt: 1.25
CPU PLL: 1.88
QPI Volt: 1.25
Set the rest of the voltages to their minimum voltage, in order they are:
1.10
1.50
1.20
1.50
1.64

A lot of people leave these voltages auto but that means they are bumped up and down by the motherboard, and they all work perfect at minimum settings, so you actually get better temps by manually setting them.

Hope this helps, if you make your settings thing and you have a decent cooler and Prime95 for a few hours, im sure you will not have any issues

Oh and one more thing, dont even bother going above 3.8. It has been shown time and time again on the i7 920s that the returns you get from going to 4.0 and above are minimal and not worth the rediculous jump you have to do in your voltage from 3.8 to 4.0 (most of the time you have to do 1.3v or more to have good stable 4.0+) People that try to push 4.0 on 920s are just doing it for the sake of saying they did it.

Hey I also forgot to tell you to disable speedstep and hyperthreading, hyperthreading just makes your cpu run hotter when OCed and it provides no real performance gains unless u are encoding a lot. Speedstep is pointless if you are looking to hit stable overclocks, since you can hit 3.8 anyway without it
