Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

Can anyone tell me how to start overclocking my 920? My MB is a DFI LANPARTY JR X58-T3H6. I have read a lot of forums and sites on how to do it but they are mostly for a different socket type. When I do find a "how to" on the I7 I try it and my CPU speed never changes.

This is all I want to do for now.

#1 Find out how to do a very slight OC maybe from 2.66 to 2.70 with the stock fan.

#2 Experiment a little with OC'ing till I start to figure out what i'm doing.

#3 Get a good cooler so I can OC to 3.0GHz (after I'm comfortable in my abilities)

Your help is appreciated!
