    Question i7 920

    Hello,

    I'm new to this and i've been reading this forum but I could not find my information....Mobo GA-EX58-UD3R with i7 920 D0.....stock cooler...temperature idle at 34 c as per RealTemp....can I just increase the MHz from 133 to 150 and not touch to anything else in the bios....so to bring to 3150.03 ?.....idle at 42 c and max at 73 c......3 x 2 Gb ram DRAM frequency 600 MHz FSB DRAM 2:8.....is this ok for stock cooler with these temp....I'm not a gamer..

    Thank you for taking the time

    yes but i wouldnt go any higher with the intel cooler,set your cpu voltage on the normal setting,set qpi voltage to 1.25000 and keep c1e and eist enabled set your ram voltage to 1.66 all these should lower temps.....and get a better cooler asap

    Thanks but my case can't accept another cpu cooler...if max temp of 73c is too much at full load I can bring it down to 145 MHz....in that case max temp is 68 c.....as for ram voltage I thought that I should not go higher than 1.5......

    so I should also touch qpi voltage ?.....and since my pc is for DAW I have to disable C1E and EIST !

    do you have windows 7? you can set balanced power saving option and it will do same job as cie,thats why your temps are high at idle,and 73c isnt too hot,you can set it to 1.5v for your ram as your not overclocked high,and set cpu and qpi voltage manually as auto will overvolt it

    yes....win 7 ultimate 64 bit.....waht would be the setting for the power saving options.....and what are your suggestions for cpu and qpi voltage if I may push my luck ?...as per the bios my cpu temp is 36 c

    Thanks for taking the time

    click control panel,then system then power options,then balanced,try setting cpu to normal setting in voltages it will say normal,and try 1.25000 qpi v

    Exclamation Re: i7 920

    ...if I leave bios as default for mobo and i7 920 (133 MHz x 20 = 2666), the temperature in PC Health section for CPU is 39 c and if I changer form 133 t o 150 it only increases to 41 c......how much can I raise this and what is the comfortable temp for iddle if 133 = 39 c and 150 = 41 c....what is the tolerable limit....

    as for qpi...if I leave it auto it's at 1.15.....next step is 1.35 if I go manually

    leave qpi on auto then,whichever is lowest and stable,downlaod realtemp or everest and look at core temps as they will be higher than cpu temps always go off coretemps,41 at idle should be fine
