G1 Assassin + i7 920 >> 4GHz ?
« on: June 21, 2012, 11:44:47 am »
Title says it.

I've purchased G1 Assassin today (yes, it's too late to get a 1366 mobo however I don't want to spend a lot of money on CPU as well)

I'm looking to boost my Intel Core i7 920 at stock speeds to 4GHz. I have also a Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E installed which would provide sufficient cooling, I presume.

I have 3 sticks of 2 GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 @1666MHz.

My rig is powered by a Seasonic X 760W.

I have never performed overclocking on (relatively) new motherboards. Which options do I need to modify to attain 4GHz ?

Thanks in advance.
