    Talking i7-950 on R3F Overclock Help - First Time

    Hey everyone, recently joined the forum in hopes there would be some nice people out there willing to hold my hand through my first "intense" overclocking attempt on this build.

    Specs
    CPU: i7-950
    Mobo: Rampage III Formula
    RAM: Vengeance 12GB
    GPU: EVGA GTX 460 SC (x2)
    Case: HAF 922
    SSD: Vertex 2 120GB
    PSU: XFX BE 850W
    Cooler: Hyper 212 Plus (Blade Master 120mm x2, Arctic Silver 5)
    Other Cooling: All stock case fans and 120mm x2 on side panel

    Goal

    • Maximum overclock on air cooling (~3.8Ghz?)

    I'm pretty sure I have sufficient cooling to make it to at least 3.8Ghz but I'll just have to wait and see.

    So yes, I'm new to this and would really appreciate anyone who would be willing to walk me through the overclocking process. I have been reading the OC threads on this board along with other sources but would feel much better to have some veterans walk me through the paces. I was messing around with some settings to get my RAM to run near stock timings since setting straight to XMP wouldn't let my board post. I have the a default BIOS profile I can switch over to and start overclocking from there.

    Tools Installed
    CPUID
    HWMonitor
    CoreTemp
    RealTemp

    LinX
    OCCT
    Prime95

    So forum gurus, where do I go from here? Use the goal of 3.8Ghz to define initial settings or casually step up settings? Sharing your own OC process and how you go through adjusting each setting would be awesome!

    Much appreciated,
    Xtrec02

    Hold your hands?
    It's depend if you are a girl or boy

    We have a lot of noobs read our 4GHz Club thread and guide and they achieved to 4Ghz with a snap of fingers. You should take a look.

    Hahaha, well too bad for you it would be a dude's hand.

    I've been reading through that thread but was wondering what process some people go through. Just go through the settings bumping everything to hit my 3.8Ghz right away or step it up casually?

    First of all, you need to go into UserCP to fill out your system specs and tick off the check box for it to show up under your name. The system specs help us to help you when you ask questions.

    You are in luck that Asus makes their mobos very easily overclock, and since you only aiming at 3.8Ghz then you can leave everything on Auto except the following;
    CPU Ratio: 23x
    Bclk: 166

    Use any stress program (IntelBurnTest, Prime95, OCCT or LinX) of your choice to do the stabiilty test and use CPU-Z, coretemp and take screen shots then post them for us.

    BTW, I'm not holding your hands

    I'm one of those noobs Deton mentioned.

    I started by looking through the threads for people with the same hardware I have and copied their settings as a starting point to get more familiar with what kinds of changes need to be made, then tweaked from there.

    One thing I found, when some of these guys have posted that something won't work below a certain voltage, etc., chances are pretty darn good that it won't.

    I thought I had a stable OC to 4.2 GHz this weekend at some voltage settings that were not supposed to work, but it turned out I wasn't cranking up the settings on the stress testing software enough.

    I was looking ALL night for that damn setting; I just kept clicking my username in the top right and didn't even notice the "User CP" link at the left. Specs are up.

    Thanks for the insight guys, when I get back home I'll try bumping some setings up based on similar settings I find throughout the OC threads.

    My main concern for "holding my hand" was so I didn't do anything stupid. So as long as I don't cross any voltage or thermal threshold I shouldn't cause any damage?

    OC the CPU first, RAM, and then GPU?

    SIDE NOTE - What's a good 2TB hard drive for storage? (Sorry for not being related to OC)

    No plans for RAID or anything (I don't mind having multiple drives). WD Green Drives any good? There is a Newegg deal for a WD Green 2TB 64mb Cache for $69.99 after $20 MIR.

    I'm really not that bad of a noob, I just see a bunch of bad reviews and like to validate my feelings with other nerds.

    For speed WD Black series are faster but if you're already have a SSD then the Green on is good enough for data drive. That's a good deal for 2TB with the rebates.

    mobo will tell you when you've reached to dangerous voltage. Use coretemp to check the temperature. Do not touch RAM or GPU at this stage just concerntrate on the cpu first.

    Thanks Deton, that's pretty much what I was asking; sorry for not being clear. I was just lining up the areas I wanted to hit and understand to achieve the max/stable OC on the CPU first before moving on.

    And yes, I already have the SSD for my OS and just need storage space now. I really don't think I deal with the hassle of RAID and don't mind having individual drives for storage. A 2TB for files and probably another 2TB for movies (already maxed out 1.25TB of externals on media).

    try my advice on post #4 then report back the results, a lot of details the better. We'll guide you from there on if you want to push your rig to the max.

    Started a blended test on Prime95 and temps shot up and continued to slowly rise until over 90C and I quickly stopped.




    Bios Settings Changed:
    CPU Ratio: 23
    Bclock: 166

    Should I start turning it down because of temps?

    a kiddy swimming pool will do.....hahaha.....no seriously

    @xtrec02;
    relax, don't panic just yet.


    reasons:
    1. when Vcore on Auto then mobo tends to over volted, you're at 1.432v it's way more at 3.8Ghz
    2. don't forget you are on air cooler so expect the temps will be high but we will tell you how good your cooler are went we settle down on the voltage
    3. poor TIM. What brand are you using?
    solution;
    1. back down the Vcore by 0.05v, run ten runs of stress test, monitoring the temps, if you get no error then repeating this step until you get error then back up the Vcore by 2 increments, repeating the test and report back the result.
    With your cooler you might get by with 4Ghz but let see how it handles at 3.8Ghz first.
