Default Successful i7 OC.

Ok. My Core i7 920 2.6Ghz CPU is running @ 3.2Ghz and that's without raising Vcore! This is a blinding CPU. Temps. are good too. Just passed Memtest86+ v4. Now for the super stress test... LinX!

EDIT:

It passed the LinX test. Temps rose to 80'C max in Real Temp.

Default Re: Successful i7 OC.

lol Ok. One second...

Ok. I had to run the test 3 times to get the screen print at the correct size! Turns out I set the incorrect resolution in paint!!!You have to scroll right though.



The next target is a 200Mhz clock speed. This will give me 1600Mhz RAM @ X8 and 4.0Ghz @ X20.

EDIT: Just tried the 200Mhz BCLK, RAM multi @ X8, CPU multi @ X20, with no volt increase and it BSOD just before Windows...

I'll work on it tomorrow.

I was getting very high temps. I realised I had too little Thermalright Chill Factor applied. So I applied a thin layer to the CPU and HS and i'm seeing 10'C difference at the extremes!
