New Member: Help me with overclocking please

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My current spec's are in my signature. I need some help overclocking. I'm not really experienced in this, and I've gained basically all my know how from different google searches however I want to go higher and I've got absolutely no idea's how to start with this. I'm using Intel burn test to see if my OC's will hold and EVGA E-Leet utility to increase clocks and voltages. However it seems to be stopping at my current clock and I don't really know what to do.

----GPU's----

I've never overclocked these before, or even tried. So I need some pointers on where to start, what programs to use, what bio's I need to grab, etc, etc.

----CPU----

I know I already have a decent clock, but I'd like to try to get more out of it. Using the cooler that I have what is the safest max voltage I could take it to? Or what else could I do to try to get more out of this chip?

Thanks for the help ahead of time.

Seems high voltage for a 920 at 3.75GHz, take a look at this thread, you should get to 4GHz at less. Try method 2 or 3 maybe.

Absolutely. My 4 GHz doesn't hit 1.27v.

I just got it to 4GHz with 1.4 with help from that guide. I'm fine with that on water, thanks Darren9.
