    Bump the cpu pll, qpi voltages...set BLCK to 200 & lower the multi to 21x

    come on rakin this is not the way to oc any cpu...its a delicate matter and it needs a lot patience and time coz as u know each hw has different oc potential, so just bumping pll and vcore isn't a good idea at all....

    @Kruger bro wassup....apnar shathe iftar party te temon 1 ta kotha hoi nai...newayz there are lots of oc guides over internet, take help from google then proceed as i already said overclocking is the art of matching of ur hw's maximum potential with in minimal power usage(bumping vcore/volt mod) and also considering the heat emitted from the oc'ed hw.....so for this u need to spend a little time to learn this...

    He cant go 4GHZ so i suggested to raise those voltages as he is facing stablitiy prob even with 1.45 vcore....

    I'm glad that helped u...
    I'm really impressed that u managed to reach 4GHZ with only 1.34vcore, but have u tested the stability of ur system either with Prime 95 or Intel BurnIn Test? and what about the highest temp in full load?

    80c with frio ock...:O which thermal compound u r using? and if ur system is stable @1.37 thats fine(but 1.37 is way too much if u dont have better cooling solution but u have maybe a better thermal compound and its proper application would help) but bro 80c for prolonged use is very unhealthy for ur cpu, try to keep the temp below 71c, coz akhon ambient temp kintu kom(weather besh thankda) but gorom porley kintu aro heatup hobe(except u have ac in ur room).....

    but bro the fact is we are living in a summer based country, seeing the online review(which actually held in any europian country) where ambient temp is around 15c, buying any hw is totally disappointment, in case of me, ami nijei saw a lot of review before buy my frio and got very impressed, but now i'm using it(ThermalTake Frio) and the performance is nowhere near those reviews, but ki korar our ambient temp waaaaaaaay toooo high and ami nijei ei summer e amar q9550'r temp 71c er nich e rakhtey literally himshim khaisi.....

    oneek kotha boley fellam bhaia.....try to lower the temp below the highest rated temp stated by intel which is 71c for a 45nm processor(afaik and correct me if i'm wrong) and anything higher then this will shorten the life of ur cpu....

    Default Re: Ocing Noob needs Help Overclocking i7 930 to 4ghz

    thats with PRIME 95 only but without it gaming and other stuff is around 56 highest , i know i think i might have applied the thermal compound wrong , anyway and all my windows were closed and AC off , i think if i turned the AC on the temp would have dropped still i think if i lower any more voltage then i think ill get BSOD . still ill do some more tweaking and see where i can go

    Bro, Don't stress the cpu too much unless you badly needed those extra mhz. Just find a nice spot considering mhz, vcore and temp.

    And one thing about OC, if there's a "LLC" (Load Line Calibration) setting in bios try to lower or disable it. It creates massive vcore drop while under load and can make the system unstable.

    Try to find the sweet spot of your CPU, don't just be mad about a specific frequency (in your case, 4 GHz). Sweet spots offer maximum possible frequency with minimum possible vCore and other voltages. It may be 3.8 or 4.2, but not 4. So, you may even end up OCing your CPU to 4+GHz while using less vCore than 4 GHz itself. Experimentation and patience is the key. True, it won't fry your CPU at current settings. But why not get it done the "OC-er" way?

    For example, my i7's sweet spot is around 3.6 GHz. I can do 3.4 @ 1.17v, 3.5 @ 1.185, 3.6 @ 1.168, 3.7 @ 1.9 ......... 4.2 @ 1.312 volts. So, as you can see, 3.6 mark looks different than the others as it requires exceptionally low voltage. It is impossible to find out unless you do some experimentaion. Once you hit the spot, you can rest assured that your CPU has been tamed.

    If you are OCing not for bragging rights but for performance gains, you may want to reconsider it. Only raytracers' performances scale linearly with frequency and core count, not games or most other apps.

    Go back to stock volts and run at 3.3ghz. Should be stable there. For every ~100mhz you add, run stability tests (OCCT 1h test should be enough). If unstable, add desired voltage. When you see that the mhz gained is relatively low for the voltage being added, youre moving away from the sweet spot.

    Generally speaking, theres no strict voltage and/or frequency of a sweet spot. But for example, if you require an extra 0.05 volts for 100mhz gain all throughout and then suddenly at one point for the next 100mhz you require an extra 0.15 volts, you know that youre better off in the previous setting.

    Proton_chain explained it quite nicely as well. In my case, the i7 920 required 1.28v for 4.2ghz, 1.32v/4.4ghz but 1.45v/4.6ghz. Ended up staying at 4.4, I didnt really need the extra 200mhz. One more thing, towards the end of the frequency barrier the chip produces a lot more heat for every mhz you increase in the case of Bloomfield (i7 9xx quads). For example, going from 3.4 to 3.6 might be an extra 15w, but 4.0 to 4.2 will be a lot more, in the range of 30w extra. Leakage increases disproportionately at those frequencies. Keep that in mind.

    Good luck
