Default please help in overclocking my i7 CPU to 3.5

a couple of months ago i used gigabyte easytune 6 to get it to 3.20 but my CPU died a month after that and got the replacement on RMA (non D0 still )

i could manually OC the Q6600 i had until last year fine but am not sure about the new hardware.

so if you could tell me what i need to change in the bios that would be great

many thanks


current idle CPU temps are 33-35 degrees and 60 on the GPU and the room is quite humid tonight with those temps

I'm sure you know, regardless of advice you recieve, you enter into this at your own risk. Having said that, overclocking the i7 has proven to be easier for me than earlier processors even though the theory is the same.

Overclocking the i7 is also dependent on your BIOS and how it's setup, but the straightforward way I did it was:

set turbo to off
set speedstep to off
set Vcore to 1.35v
set DRAM to 1066mhz (you'll want some decent 1600mhz ram as your DRAM frequency will rise as you change your Bclk)
set bclk to 175 (for a 3.5ghz OC)

It should be as simple as that, but like others posted, look around. There are some good tutorials all over the place and most say the same thing.

Here's one that was relevant to me as I got the ASUS P6T Deluxe v2: http://www.hardocp.com/news.html?new...VzaWFzdCwsLDE=

I used this one its for the extreme but worked well with my UD4P

There are also plenty of sites that offer the profiles that you can just load up and see how they do.
