    Default Overclocking help

    Hi guys, just wanted to see if I could get some help to OC my new PC, from what I have gathered I could get it to 4.2Ghz on air cooled.
    Specs of the rig are:

    Gigabyte X5aA-Ud3r
    i7 930
    Kingston KHX2000C9AD3T1/6GX
    EVGA GTX460 1GB SLI

    try the guide for 4.2ghz in my sig,just download it,you can either use dvid and cpu voltage set to normal or set dvid to normal and try with cpu voltgae from 1.25000v to 1.30000v read the rules on setting uncore freq,you will have better stability using a 21x200 cpu multi and disabling intel turbo boost

    So with the Uncore frequency I should be doubleing that? what is the max safe voltage for the i7 930?
    Also what do I set the System Memory Multiplier to and DRAM voltage or what is the safe level to not go over?
    Also for these settings:
    Profile DDR Voltage ................... xxxxV ??
    Profile QPI Voltage ................... xxxxV ??
    Sorry for all the questions, Im just new to this and I have read as much as I can but Im kinda confused about these settings.
    Any info and help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    thats whatever xmp sets those voltages at,not all memory supports xmp its best disable it and set all ram timings/speed manually,uncore freq is double ram multi then add one extra to it so 8x ram multi will be 17x uncore,youll need anything from 1.2000v to 1.3000v cpu voltage for 4ghz

    Hmm well I tried to run those settings and it wouldnt post the bios restarted and the Cpu was down to 2.0Ghz, my ram is ~2000mhz what settings then do i need to set the ram at?
    Looks like my ram wont support the xmp because it wont allow me to disable it, it only has enable and then two other options (i forget those now)
    Sorry again real noob here with this, its my first time to OC a pc.
    Gonna try again and see where that goes.

    you should be able to disable xmp,to set your ram speed enable spd and rasie the memory multiplier to give you 2000mhz speed,your better off using 1800 or 1866mhz as 2000mhz will need alot of voltage,what cpu voltage did you use? if it failed you need to increase a few clicks and re-try,theres no magic formula its just a starting point to start from as every cpu/mb will need different voltages to get stable so you will need to keep adjusting and re-testing things like cpu voltage and qpi/vtt voltage

    actually sorry it was the load line calibration there is no option to disable it, just has standard and level 1/2 I used the same voltages that were in the template

    also C3/C6/C7 state support keeps going in to disable, ive managed to get past the bios screen, but as soon as windows tried to boot it goes into the bluescreen and re-boots the pc, ive set the ram to 8 and the uncore to 17x i havent touthced the stock timmings in any way, should i raise these?
    At this point I have Vcore at 1.28125v
    Qpi/vtt at 1.355

    dvid only gets unlocked when you set cpu voltage to normal setting in voltage list
