Hi french man from Quebec Canada here I have overclocked my Core i7 930 for the 1st time since I was looking for a bit more performance and I will change my computer in a year or 2 to ryzen so I was looking for advices from experienced overclocker to check my oc to be sure there is no mistake or danger and if everything is alright. I oced my cpu yesterday and been running the OC for 1 day now, I did a prime95 test for 2hrs at 100% load all thread all core and passed it (well stayed green i mean), runned the computer all day with no issues at all and played games like Watch Dogs 2 at ultra with no problems for over a hour at 45-60 fps. So what I did is I've read a few guides online how to oc a i7 to 3.8ghz-4ghz I took their numbers, voltage and frequency dropped them down a little since I didnt want to hit 4ghz and so far seem to be running a stable oc at 3.5ghz since 1 day ago with no issues. I want to know if there is any danger of running it like this, like if 1 of my voltage is wrong or too high or something is set wrong in ram or qpi etc. My CPU TEMPERATURE AT IDLE IS : 43C-48C........ My CPU TEMPERATURE AT FULL LOAD PRIME IS 70C-78C it NEVER goes over 80C no matter what I try. My idle temp is 5c over stock and my full load temp is about 8c over stock at 2.8ghz.

Buckeyes!
Seems ok to me. The name of the game is to use the least amount of voltage needed for a given clock. If you are there, and stable, you are finished!

Your me.or you timings (trp and trcd) are a little looser than they are rated for. Not a huge deal. It should be 9-9-9 you are at 9-11-11..
