    Thanks for the reading lists. I've printed out the Gigabyte PDF and will be spending my evening (after Dollhouse, that is) trying the suggested settings out from this thread and that guide. Hopefully this will go down rather bloodlessly and we'll by cooking with gas in short order. :)

    And remember all chips are a bit different. One may be able to do clocks at certain voltages that others cant.

    Let us know the outcome and any questions at all, you know where to look.

    Have fun!

    GIGABYTE shows how to overclock i7 920 CPU to 4GHz :: TweakTown

    Those should fill in the holes for ya guys . I would start with the last since it actually uses a Gigabyte board w/ the i7 while the others use Intel, Asus, etc.

    Please post back, i need to know how it goes. Yes, i need to .
    Thanks m8 followed the gigabyte guide and so far seems great just ran 3d advantage and that went ok so running prime95 now but thanks for your help. Just watching temps now so far 70c highest on full load at 4ghz.

    Yo Copy, THATS GREAT DUDE! 4 G's @ 70c is awesome bro. You got there pretty quick. For reference, when i run 4ghz + my temps are high 70's -low 80's. your doing great man. How high do you have your RAM clocked at . Im guessing your using 191x21 for the 4ghz, so maybe 1528mhz on the RAM? If you are, try bumping that BLCK to 200 to give you your rated 1600mhz RAM.

    If ya dont mind, please post your current settings to get where you are now using the template. most importantly mem multi, mem timings, mem voltage, QPI voltage, uncore freq, BLCK, cpu multi, vcore, is HT on or off, as well as you BIOS version. Nicely done man!

    Dollhouse is only 15 minutes in, but so far so good and yes, the babes is hawt on that show.

    I'm not having the luck Copy is having. I cranked the CPU to 4 GHz using all the settings in the Gigabyte guide (I'm up to pg. 18) and it booted to Windows fine and Real Temp is show 46-48C at idle. I started a Prime95 Blended test and went to watch Dollhouse and came back at the first advert break to find a message that "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" meaning P95 faceplanted in less than 10 minutes. Something's not right.

    I upped RAM voltage to 1.66 and set timings to 1200 MHz and 9-9-9-24. Any ideas?

    Tried 9-9-9-26 and set the RAM freq to 1600 MHz and rebooted and it did the extra-long double clutch that indicates failure and lo and behold, it reset everything to default, wiping out all my settings. Next up: tyring dbee's suggested settings. Little bummed I'm not matching Copy's success.

    dbee's settings were a no go with the system resetting to stock speeds before it even POSTed. Running Prime95 now to get a baseline temp and it's reading from 57C-61C with eight threads burning and looking stable.

    Hey, copyme, what did you do with your RAM timings, etc. to get success while I'm failing here?

    what are your qpi ram and cpu volts?? i can get you to an easy 3.8 if you want,its probably your 12 gb of ram thats causing problems where as copy ony had 6,its harder to tweak with 12gb
