Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

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.
Just be careful with the voltage settings on auto. Some motherboards over volt by quite a big margin. It is better to enter voltages manually.
