View Full Version : Overclock Help

I have an Intel Core i7 980X with an ASUS Rampage III Extreme motherboard running 6GB DDR3 Corsair Dominator RAM XMP (7-7-7-20) 1600MHz.

What setting's would I have to change to get the RAM upto 2000Mhz with the CPU at 4.0Ghz. A vCore of 1.45 and QPI/DRAM Voltage of 1.45 are fine.

What cooler are you using for your CPU? also what are your idle and load CPU temperatures?

You will need to increase your BCLK frequency to raise CPU and Memory speed (Stock BCLK is 133MHz)

1.45 Vcore may be a little to much for your CPU at 4GHz causing your system to run hotter than it needs to be. also 1.45v QPI/DRAM seems high i recommend starting at 1.3V ~ 1.35V and going higher only if you need.
