I'm kind of a OC n00b but I heard this is the first easiest clock to hit, by doing 20*160, as opposed 133. The thing is all these other Q settings and voltages. :headexplode:

Can you pretty much just hit 3.2 (my first attempt) by just setting it to 160? Or are there other things to worry about.

This is a i7 920 D0 retail box I got from Microcenter today for $199. :D

You might be able to get to 3.6 w/o messing with the voltages too much. Several quick guides are at evga.com.

Yeah 3.6 is an awesome 24/7 overclock. Mine idles at 27c and loads at 65c after hours of prime95, i have a push n pull on my TRUE120 with Akasa Apache 120mm fans.

I have most of my voltages on auto but for my other OC profiles 3.8 and 4.0 i have manually adjusted the voltages for stability and temps are a little higher 5c on the 3.8 oc and 10c on the 4.0 oc. The voltage regulator also takes a 10c hit with the 4.0 oc taking it to 85c under stress load. For this reason i keep the 4.0 OC only for benchmarking purposes.

It frickin smells like farts up in here don't know why.

Good ocing requires solid vcores all around the board from ram to the nb tot he oc to the ram.
