    i7 920 overclock to 4ghz

    Hi, I'm running a Gigabyte x58 oc m/b i7 920 cpu notcha dh-14 cpu fan. 16 gb of ddr3 ram.

    I have turned the 4ghz button on, it has taken my i7 to 4ghz i ran an occt test and its stable, temps get to 82c if that to high?

    Thanks for reading/replying

    I believe the Intel processor spec for that chip is 67.9C. Personally, I would not run an i7-920 at 82C. Probably 70C max. What is your vcore?

    I was just curious. 1.35V is well within the acceptable range. (Intel spec is 0.800V-1.375V).

    You should look for a way to improve your processor cooling to bring down those temps. That's what I would do.

    The 67.9C spec refers to Tcase max. (case temp / CPU temp), and not TjMax of 95-100C which relates to the core temp's (Tjuncton) as read by both Real Temp and Core Temp. As long as the OP is referring to the average core temp, 82C is ~18C below TjMax which is somewhat high but OK considering a 1.35V Vcore.

    That voltage spec refers to the VID Voltage Range, and not the absolute maximum Vcc / Vcore for the i7-900 series chips. The absolute max. Vcc as given by Intel for the i7-900 series is 1.55V.

    that temp is acceptable, but if you really want to see what temps your PC will get up to over time try out prime95 small fft mode for an hour or two. If you stay under 90 you should be okay!

    you may also be able to lower that vcore of yours.

    It needs to be a GTX 560 with the same memory size as the other card, the 560 ti will not SLI with a standard gtx 560, so a gtx 560 OC will SLI fine with what you have as long as they are both either the 1gb or 2gb versions.
