Hey guys,

I just build my first system (core i7 920) and am gradually overclocking my CPU. So far I have it at 3.3ghz and am stress testing my system. Here are the temps so far. You think I may be able to eventually reach 4.0 ghz? I have a ThermalRight TRUE 120 heatsink/fan.

You need to test it for at least 10 hours, and are you on stock voltage..?

I couldn't get 4.0 on air but I was stable at 3.99 with a megahalems cpu cooler and noctua fans. vcore was 1.176 and buss speed was like 188 I think

Computer restarted after a few hours on stress. Gonna up the voltage a little bit.

EDIT: Got the vcore up to 1.2 with the same speed. high so far is 61/58/59/56. Hopefully it will stay stable this time.

need more v-core. for 4.0 you will be very very lucky if you dont need at least 1.30v

It seems like that. I guess each processor has it's own quirks. So far almost 2 hours and still running stable at load at the same temps.
