Default Re: Kentsfield/Quad-Core Overclocking Thread

Tbh, my oc was quite easy and painless and I only stopped going higher because of heat. I went straight to 400x8; once that was tested stable I dropped the multi to 7 and started raising the hsb until i was back to 3.2GHz. 500x6(3GHz) also runs great but I prefer the cpu clocks. I'm sure there is plenty of potential left if the heat could be taken care of.


@daforce: if your heatsink was on tight then there is no need for this mod. It could have been revised or some bad one simply slipped through quality control.
