    Default (HELP) What is the most stable Overclock speed for i7 970 (daily run)

    Been browsing, searching around on how to overclock my CPU Intel i7 970 for daily run, I've decided to overclock as my friend's giving me his CPU cooler Corsair H80 LC, at the moment I have the stock intel cooler that came along with the CPU, so yeah my complete specs are on my profile. I've tried to use Easytune6 but didnt help much.. lol ..was wondering what is the best stable overclock speed for daily run any suggestion on how as well would be appreciated.. =)

    With that cooler and a 6 core then somewhere in the region of 3.8 ish ....maybe 4.0 I would guess. Depends a bit on how cool you keep your room in summer and how loud is too loud.

    The principles will be the same as in This thread just with some of the values changed so have a read through. The other way is to use easytune but although I understand the principles of overclocking using voltage offset it is not something I know much about.

    I got my 980 to 4.5 and the H80 is supposed to be better than the Kuhler 920

    If you are methodical, take copious notes along the way and do not try to take shortcuts then you will have all the information you need to find the limit on your rig

    There are more options available to you with your 970 and there are further options too with running 1866 ram.

    May I suggest that you find the maximum Bclk for your board. Then find the maximum speed for your memory (at stock voltage and timing) before going on to see how high you can go with the cpu.

    By doing the above you will know which settings you need on voltage for various values of Bclk before you try increasing the speed of cpu. I say this because there are many ways to attain, for example, a speed of 4.0

    I'll suggest a couple in order you may see what I mean. as well as the 19 * 211 mentioned in the other thread maybe cpu multi 21*191 Bclk with a mem multi of 10 is worth a try for cpu at 4011 and ram at 1910.... or maybe cpu multi 25*160 Bclk with a mem multi of 12 for cpu at 4000 and ram at 1920. These might be quite good for 4.0 but other settings may be preferred if you want to push higher.

    Because you will know, by the time you start cpu overclocking, just how high you can push your Bclk and ram, once you reach your cpu target you might be able to keep on going upwards with small increments of Bclk until you find the limit of you cpu either as a result of temperature or voltage.

    Have fun doing this.... it can be quite enjoyable and accomplishing your first solid overclock is most rewarding.

    im going to try and understand more lol and more fiddling around..

    The tools cpu-z and realtemp I see you have found. You could do with getting prime 95 and LinX

    After looking at the first pic I wanted to ask who built your rig... and when? ..... but the second is a little less frightening when looking at the temps so I will ask instead what thermal paste did you use? because there does seem to be quite a wide difference between the cores temperatures.

    The next question is: What memory is that? I cannot find it. At first glance it seems to be 1333 speed but there seems to be a 2000 xmp profile

    Well i built it from my friend's scraps lol.. as I mentioned on my first post i just inherited a CPU cooler Corsairr H80.. the paste was pre-applied all I did was attach it to my comp.. lol
    LOL yeah.. knew i screwed up lol its Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600.. lol please advise me if im doing something wrong xD

    I expect one or two of the others to chip in on this but personally I would replace the thermal paste with mx2, mx3, mx4 or something similar. If you can achieve good hold down pressure then maybe IC Diamond.

    Back to the ram ...is there a number on it like KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX. we kind of need this info before we get started..... and I see conflicting info on the various screenshots you gave us

    Back to the ram ...is there a number on it like KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX. we kind of need this info before we get started..... and I see conflicting info on the various screenshots you gave us
    okay just bought mx4 im going to clean it up and see if temps go down..

    regarding the ram... not exactly sure but i think its - KHX1866C9AD3T1K3/6GX DDR3-1866MHz CL9 240-Pin DIMM Kit x 2 ..if by any chance is there other ways to find out?

    this is my default config:


    ...





    my temps go up to 101'C when i stress them with prime95.. @_@

    How are you intending to apply the new Tim? I suggest you read This as this method works for most of us and is considered THE proper way.

    I know I keep pressing about the memory but it is because in your bios pic it is running @ 1866 but cpu-z shows 1333 but it also shows an xms profile for 2000 ....strange. There is normally a paper label on the side of each stick of ram with the part number on it.

    Regarding your temps... jumping straight in at any given speed you will not know what to expect either in temps or voltage and if you are doing this with auto settings then these are renowned for setting high voltages which will in turn increase the temps.

    Drdeath thinks that auto is fine and good.... and on full water cooling I would agree but you need to keep voltages (and therefore heat) as low as possible.

    Sorry for the late response.. ok i got my ram specs from the kit itself its KHX2000C9AD3T1K3/6GX - 1.65V

    Time doesn't matter but this is good info. http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/k...d3t1k3_6gx.pdf shows the xmp profiles specs if you want to use them and allows us to set targets for a memory speed.

    So, back to the beginning;

    The short and rough way would mean setting an xmp profile and voltage for the ram. selecting a cpu multi and cpu volts of say 1.35v then with everything else on auto gradually bring the Bclk up until you either reach your target speed or it fails for reasons of voltage or heat.

    The more thoughtful way is to explore what maximums are achievable for Bclk and then Memory and then finally Cpu. Doing things this way allow you to try out different variations available to you due to having the i7 970 which can use a multi up to and including 25.

    Provided you keep notes as you do these tests you will in future know what voltage is required to set a certain Bclk and what the difference is (if any) when running your memory at 1866 or 2000.

    My recommendation would be to try the long way and, bearing in mind the comments made by knowledgeable people here, choose a cpu multi that is an odd number when setting your target.

    Getting to a good overclock is a good few hours in the doing but finding the best combination for your rig may be many times that so small steps and one step at a time now will mean less work later if that is your intention.

    Although your Bios will be a little different in layout and I only have the x58 not the x58A to try to help you with if you try to follow that thread I mentioned in post 2 then come back and ask any questions you may have I'm sure that between us we can point you in the right direction.

    =D Thank you for fully going through with this with me.. even with my temps! i got it stable with mx4. heres a screenie =))


    Thanks Heaps once again! =)Your a winner - btw if you have any suggestion, please dont hesitate xDDD

    Ohh btw whats the maximum safe Vcore?
