« on: April 06, 2012, 10:57:02 pm »
Hello I recently clocked my i7 960 (first time, I dont rly know much so any help are welcome!).
Here are the results: , running with 2000Mhz ram too.
Clock info:
4.1 Ghz (164Mhz x 25 = 4.1
1970Mhz ram (164Mhz x 12 = 1970Mhz)
1,280Vcore (that gives 1,280 in idle and 1,264 in load
1.395qppi/vtt (needed for memory,+3degrees vs 1.333)
Computer info:
GA-X58A-UD5 (rev. 1.0) - [...] 304#manual
CMX12GX3M3A2000C9 - DDR3-2000 9-10-9-27-2N @ 1.65v
i7-960 -
Silver Power SP-SS620M 620W PSU
Gainward GeForce GTX 570 1280MB PhysX
Corsair SSD Force Series? GT 120GB
Seagate Barracuda® 7200.12 1TB
Sony Optiarc DVD±RW Writer, AD-5280S
NZXT Phantom Big Tower Svart

I ran it for 1hour 27 minutes only but will do a longer one tonight!
Are the temps too high or do you think its ok? Any other opinions about the clocking? All help are appreciated!

in normal use I'm pretty sure its around 40-60 degrees ~
