Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

I know overclocking will likely be affected with 6 sticks instead of 3, but with only 3 sticks it should OC the same with 1GB or 2GB sticks, so 3 x 2GB @ 1.65v is the way to go.

@ Revs, thermal spec on the cores is 100C. I've run my two hot cores up to 90C @ 4GHz w/ HT on and she was still stable. Apparently 100C is when it will shut down.
