Hey guys... After 2 weeks of working on my first overclock I think I finally have a stable clock... I managed to get 4.2ghz on my d0 920 (1.31v... seems a little high but I couldn't get anything lower to get stable for more than 3 hours)

So far I've been doing a small FFT test for 8 hours... Is it safe to call stable or should I push for 12+?

You're stable. If you lasted 8 hours and you can do all normal tasks (i.e. play games, watch movies, browse the web, etc.) without any issues, you're fine. Sometimes stability testing is overdone.

You're good to go.

Also, 1.31v is not high. Intel has it spec'd to 1.35v safely. People just pride themselves when they get their voltages lower than that.

It didn't seem too high until I remembered it was a d0... I guess the people running 4.0 with 1.1v are just lucky?

Yes. That's exactly it. They're just lucky.

Each chip yields different results. I have a D0 "B" batch, which is recommended. However, I need to have 1.29v for my 3.9HT. It doesn't matter [to an extent] as long as your temps are low.

Let me ask you this; post your overclock template on this page. Let everyone see how you got to 4.2. I'll see if I can tell you what to tweak to possibly get your system to run with lower voltages (i.e. post your BIOS settings under "frequency")

some guy on these forums got 4.67GHz stable
and on youtube some guy got 5GHz

5ghz x 4 cores thats 20 cores and + hyperthreads thats 5ghz x 8 cores thats 40 cores on a i7

and 4.2ghz x 8 cores is 33ghz so basicly 33 cores

This is a joke right?

Dude, what in the heck?

EDIT: Okay, I'm actually laughing out loud. No "lol" needed.

I've never quoted anyone in my sig before, but this is a winner.

I never have either. I had to quote it.
