Trouble trying to overclock i7 930

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm new to overclocking, and have read through some forums guides etc. I decided I wanted to try and get a little more out of my system because at this point it has all stock settings. When I tried to start overclocking, bumping the default clock of 133 to 140 windows will not load. My machine posts and then it goes into the windows splash and stops partway through. I haven't touched any of the other settings, is there something that I am missing?

Have you tried running LinX while at stock settings? Be sure to nab RealTemp too so you can monitor your temps. There are way too many variables present to attempt a guess at the cause. If you can pass an hour on LinX, try bumping your multiplier up one and give it another go.

You're going to probably need to increase the voltage, along with possibly changing some ram settings. Check out this guide. If you don't want to get a well optimized overclock and just want 4ghz go to the "quick and dirty" method (Just ctrl+f for quick and dirty)

I hope you're not trying to OC on the stock CPU cooler. You might get a little out of it but your temps will go up really fast.
