    Default Overclocking the P55-UD4P / i7860

    I have used a EP45-UD3P for about a year. I just switched to a P55-UD4P and don't know the first thing about OCing the board. What is an easy way or a good link to find out? Thanks.

    So, have you had any luck yet? I found a EVGA guide somewhere, I can find the link if you want.

    P55 still so new though, not much in the way of real guides yet though. Clunk may have some tips, I'll have to look

    Not much help. I am starting to understand it better. If you see a guide, please post it. I know you are a busy man. The Linus video really helped. I am hooking up better cooling right now so I can start into the OC world.

    Any help would be welcome.

    Oh, thank you so much.

    For anyone wondering, I just installed a Coolermaster TX3 ($15) and was not expecting much.

    This $15 cooler dropped my i7860 idle temps 18C and load temps 30C! Unbelievable! This thing is worth every penny.

    Thanks again for the links.

    How important is changing the QPI clock ratio to the lowest possible setting?

    I am seeing this in guides and lefty out in others..

    I really don't understand this setting. I know it changes the QPI link speed.

    In general, is the QPI link speed something that needs attention when OCing?

    It does not need to be the lowest, that can just help you gain stability and is the easiest to setup. All that is a must when it comes to QPI Freq is that you keep it under 8GT/s unless you have hard modded your board

    Higher is better, but you should get the x36 one stable before you try higher ones

    Thanks for the help Lsdmeasap, I have my i7 860 running at 3.7Ghz stable with a cheap air cooler and it will go higher. I think I need one of those Corsair water cooling kits. What a chip!
