    Welcome to PureOC. 4GHz will be easy but it looks like you have stock cooling. If so you will have to make a small investment in a better air cooling solution. The Noctua D-14 remains the top in the class for appr 90 US dollars. You can get one in the 50 range that will be much better than stock cooling. Look at the Thermaltake Frio or even less, the Hyper 212. Temps with stock cooling wil certainly inhibit your 4GHz goal... If you want a decent water cooling solution that is I thnk around 100 dollars, look at the H70 by Corsair. In the meantine, search our forum for a overclocking guide and read up to get the basics understood. I am on. My Blackberry and I hate the fokker and cutting and pasting link sux! LOL and good luck.

    To answer your question, it is very easy to overclock a i7 to over 4Ghz.

    We have managed to get a PC build with an i7-920 up to 4.43Ghz with custom watercooling. It was stable with air to 4.25Ghz, so yes it can be done.

    A i7-920, Asus Extreme II, 12GB RAM, 5970 and Corsair case, it was able to achieve a stable 4.43Ghz and benchmark in 3D Mark Vantage of:

    Overall: 31204 CPU: 27556 GPU: 32645.

    I must admit these forums helped alot with overclocking, but trial and error can be the most fun. Just be careful with heat and voltages, thats all i'll say.

    Going to upgrade my system to i7 now i've practiced with it.

    Good luck.

    G225; go into UserCP to fill out your system specs and click on a check box for it to show up under your avatar.

    With stock HFS won't take you very far with overclocking, because i7 can overclock over 4Ghz with a good air cooler. Yes you do need to replace the stock HFS with a good aftermarket one to consider overclocking your 965.

    Your 965 is unclock multiplier, you can leave the Blck at 133 and just pump up the mulitplier until you reach your desire overclock frequency.

    can't give you the exact voltage because each chip is diffrent, take a look at the bios template in the 4Ghz Club thread to give you some idea of starting point.

    P6T board is easy with overclocking you can leave the Vcore on Auto if you do mild overclock, then use CPU-Z or Asus Overclock utility to check the voltage to give you the idea how much volt you need to run your CPU.

    Yes... Like mentioned in earlier reply, I gave 3 choices. Low, med and high priced. Hyper +212 about $30-35( I would not recommend), Thermaltake frio anout $50-$55 and the Noctua D-14 $85 or so which is the best. You need to post specs cause the D-15 may not fit in your case. You need to keep temps under 80 on full load stress test.

    My original fan is not sufffisate with my tower that contains several fans ?

    If I change processor fan is ok or Headsink also ?
    Why do you say watercooling is not for you? Since your case has a 120 fan in the rear it would be perfect for the Corsair H70 as Drdeath suggested in an earlier post. The H70 is a all in one sealed unit so you would not have to learn anything about how a WC system works and goes together. Great little cooler.
