    I dont know how good alienware motherboards/bios are for overclocking, but try to get something easy like 3.36ghz. turn off vdrop and try setting voltage to 1.2 with everything else set to factory reccomended voltages or default.

    There's plenty of guides out there. Your cpu may need more or less voltages than average. some people only need 1.1v to get 4ghz, i need 1.3

    Hmm there is a program that I use on my Alienware M17x called throttle stop. A guy on another forum I use created it and it is used for increasing the CPU multiplier, amps and watts to the CPU. Works well for overclocking. Check out http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware/ Look in the "Official M17x Benchmarking" thread and there is an individual by the name of "Unclewebb" In his sig is the link to the program. I believe he also wrote RealTemp.

    i7 920 has a locked multiplier... you will not be increasing it. Read the guide I linked, and feel free to ask questions Welcome to OCF
