    Hi Danny, Welcome to Pure OC !

    We do have a core i7 overclocking guide the Deton put a lot of hard work into . I suggest you start by reading Deton's guide, you can also check out the 4GHz club and pick up some tips from there.

    As far as the Domino cooler, it's not a bad cooler, for the price. I think you could do better with a regular water cooling set up. Maybe if you tell us how much you have to spend on a cooling system, we would be able to help you find a better system.

    Can you please fill out your system specs. and location

    Thanks

    Hi Danny, welcome to PureOC!

    We've tested many coolers and can help you pick one out, either air or water cooling.

    As for overclocking the Rampage II Extreme, there are several people here that have it (including myself) and I believe Deton's overclocking thread will be of great value to you. I highly recommend you have a read there to get you started. If you run into problems or questions we can definitely help you get that new i7 juiced up

    Thank you I have read some of it about 10 pages or so but the asus ramp works in different way to other i7 boards so it makes life harder.

    I just need someone to lay down some basic inputs and explain why they are set to that level.

    Once I get idea for it I be ok.

    As for cooler I went for the factory set one as I am have no exp in water cooler and don't wanna wreck a $2000 rig over it.

    Edit: Only thing I am worried about atm is temps and vcore voltage.

    What is the core temps I should be aiming to run under at 100% load and what is max voltage I can push on a 950 i7.

    Also on side not my 950 i7 in CPUID shows up as a 920 in one area of info at top and in middle shows up 950 very wierd.

    Danny, Intel coolers are not made for overclocking ! The Domino installs very easy, but you do have to remove your motherboard to install the back plate, unless you have a case that has a motherboard tray with a cut out for installing back plates. This is another reason we asked you to fill out your system specs, what kind of case do you own ?

    I own both the 965 Extreme and the 940 which was just replaced buy your 950, believe me when I tell you that Intel coolers are not made for cooling processors at 4GHz. I know the new processors run cooler, but once overclocked your going to need better cooling. There are some very good air coolers out there, but most require installing a back plate.

    If your not up to installing a back-plate, you should check out the Evercool Buffalo we just reviewed, this cooler installs like the Intel stock cooler, only it runs around 8-10c cooler for $17
