With the same voltage I had about the same temps with cooler room temperature BUT at 4,2GHz..

It depends if you luck out and get a chip that runs cool...I dont mind that mine runs a little warm....its a good OCer... it will prolly do 4.5 if set the vcore to 1.38 to 1.40.

I set my Overclock and forget it...if I fry it then Oh well

I would just up your CPU Host Frequency to 144 and then adjust your Ram divider as close as possible to its rated speed.
You will have to run a 2:10 divider, that will give you 1443 on your Ram, then set your Uncore to 20x2886.
If you run a higher divider you will be OCing your Ram....you could always try tighter timings.

Another option would be to lower your multiplier to 20 and run 20x150 which gives you 3Ghz and the ram will be running at 1503.
with a divider of 2:10.. set your uncore to 3006. Your will be turning Turbo Mode off...I personally think that TM is just gimmick as it only
raises the multi on one of the cores.
You should be able to do this by leaving most if not all of your voltages on auto. If theres an instability at all, try upping the vcore and VTT until its stable
Dont forget to to set your memory voltage to 1.65

But first of all, I would clear your Cmos.. especially if your board is not saving your settings.
I"m printing this out lol. I'm a noob so some of the things you said are Greek to me but I'm gonna give it a shot!

How do I clear out the Cmos? One thing I have never done is a Bios update or flash, not sure how to do it.

Thank You!

I had a C0 too and it ran cooler at the same voltage.

My D0 is at 3.5ghz right now, at 1.25V (I have speedstep and C1E on). 42C. Don't get me wrong, this chip will likely clock higher, but it is definitely running 5-7C warmer than my C0.

That said, my C0 was freakishly good.

AND it's for sale!

But I'm not sure if it's worth with. 3.8 or 4.2GHz is not that noticeable apart from benchmarks. On the other hand, Gulftown is still nearly a year away...
Ah, c'mon.. you can go higher. Even my ancient quad will go to 3.9.

What's the max recommended voltage on the i7? I haven't been keeping up lately.

What's the point of comparing the Yorkfield with the nehalem??Totally different chips and architecture.

Haven't heard any problems with cpu degrading because of the voltage like the core 2 duos.


Although you can't go easily past 1.4 without extreme cooling as the temps will hit red.

Lighten up, it was a joke. Hence the
