    Default G1.Sniper X58 Overclock guide/help

    I recently got a Gigabyte G1.Sniper X58 Motherboard and am having a heck of a time trying to overclock with it. What I need is a basic guide that will give me the basics.

    Gigabyte G1.Sniper X58
    Core i7 920 D0
    NZXT Havik 140 cooler
    G.Skill DDR3-1600 3 X 2 gb

    I had this CPU on an EVGA board before this and could OC it easily to 3.9ghz. Not so easy with this new board.

    what do you want to clock to? set cpu voltage to around 1.25-1.3v for 4ghz and set qpi/vtt voltage to around 1.32-1.35v set dram voltage to spec either 1.5v or 1.66v whatever ram multi you choose set uncore freq to twice plus one so 8x ram multi will be 17x uncore and so on

    set cpu clock drive to 800mv and set pcie clock drive to 900mv and that should be it,of coarse test and refine voltages as they depend on each individual chip

    Slugbug

    I have recently purchased an G1.sniper X58 mobo and and am over clocking an i7 930 @ 3.8GHz with fairly low voltages. As the thread is a month old I may be a lillte late to the party, but if you are still working on over clocking your mobo reply back and I will post my settings experience with the board so so far. Would be interest to know what bios you are on I've stuck with the non beta F2 for the time being.
