Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

I did my first overclocking on this one. I changed aka FSB from 133 to 160, left Turbo ON, HT On, Intel Speed Step ON, Virtualization is ON as well. Voltage is default, and everything as far as voltage is default. Memory setting all in AUTO. I switched memory speed from 1600Mhz down to 1066Mhz, after overclocking it runs 1333Mhz...good enough for me.

So final clock speed with Turbo is 3476 Ghz. I keep High Performance in Power Option. I didn't notice any temperature increase.
