Default Re: Intel i7 920 overclock

Try to get the TRUe and a 1366 mounting bracket. If you do watercooling you'll probably reach the power output before the temperature output.

Default Re: Intel i7 920 overclock

I just spent over $1800 on just my tower (no monitor or keyboard, mouse speakers...) just to find out that I can't OC anything because of this stupid i7 920 processor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rawr!!!! my mobo's bios states that because my processor is locked I cannot change the memory settings, so I have to run my memory at 800 or 1066. Here is my hardware:

COOLER MASTER Stacker 830 Evolution Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower

ASUS Rampage II Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor (not sure what version and too lazy to look in the closet)

EVGA 01G-P3-1281-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ700 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory

Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (crashes when I switch sata config to ACHI)

6x Scythe SY1225SL12SL 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan (this is a great noise to cfm ratio 3.2 cfm's per decible and the price is great!)

someone please tell me what the lowest i7 is unlocked pls!!!!!!! so I can take my processor back!!!!! fry's doesn't accept it after 15days!

The 920 isn't locked. Are you sure you're not trying to overclock by using the multiplier instead of changing the bus speed (133). The multiplier is locked but the bus speed isn't.
