Well, i got my I7 920 today and i figured we should probably have a 920 overclocking thread. I will try to link helpful articles, and "cheat sheets" i can find. if you find any good ones PM me and i'll post em here.
here's mine so far.




for some reason if i go any higher no post, i'm guessing i have alot to learn. because it is rock solid stable and good temps, but no amount of voltage will let me go any higher. we will see what we find.
here's a good overclocking article

I am seriously worried about temps even with my TRUE.
yup, that's with this cpu block i ran occt for about an hour but i don't have time to do much more testing tonight, maybe more tomorow. this board has so many options i don't even know what they all do. I can't wait to get a 4870X2 though.

one really weird thing is that i can run any stress testing program for a long time, and any benchmark with no problems except for super pi... it crashes when i try to run it. i haven't even done any windows updates yet so i'm gona take it easy till i get all my programs installed and running.

edit i'll upload pics tomorrow.

There should be an option to turn this OFF on the P6T deluxe. Have you tried to find that setting. The OC on the 920 are restricted until you unlock it. BTW 3.5ghz, not bad for first try on a whole new system.
