could someone explain a bit on how to overclock a cpu? I know Rodney did a Q&A video, but his explanation kinda.... well.... made my head spin lol. I DO have my current Q6600 overclocked, but that's only because I looked on youtube and copied another person's settings. The new setup I plan on getting is as follows:
Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core
ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/S USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W ATX 12V v2.3, EPS 12V v2.91 CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/S 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
The Intel 'k' series chips make overclocking extremely easy. Turn up the Turbo Ratio and VCore in small increments, reboot, and keep testing it until you find the highest stable overclock. Use a stress test application like prime95 for testing stability.
well that sounds easy enough. Thanks!
Let us know how you make out :)
I will be sure to do that! Should be coming in a few days
ok, so I have everything set up, but I can't figure out what is what on this motherboard. Can anyone help?
actually just figured it out. I am currently up to 4.6 GHz with temps in the high 60s to low 70s. I think that's about as far as I can push it on air cooling with a Noctua NH-D14
