    Cool Help me overclock my Maximus III Forumula w/ i7 875 for the first time.

    I recently RMA'd my board and everything has been up and running smooth for several weeks (aside from my weird RAID issue in another post). I never clocked the old board with my i7 860 in it. I found a deal on a 875, so I'm going to try to keep this rig alive, running, and competing for as long as possible before I leave the 1156 format. Nothing extreme - I'm not adding water cooling, etc. Just want to get the most out of what I have and finally install Skyrim that I've had sitting around for months now

    So with that said, where should I start?


    Intel Core i7 875
    4GB (2x2GB)GSkill DDR3-1600 [F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ]
    ASUS Maximus III Formula BIOS v1202
    Saphire Radeon HD5850 1GB GDDR5
    2x2TB Hitachi Deskstars in RAID 1
    160 GB Intel x25M Gen2 Boot Drive
    Pioneer BDR-205 Blu-Ray/Multi Burner/Reader
    Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

    Sorry for the delay to answer mate, I have been away with some family stuff for the last 10 days.

    I would start off by having a good read of some of the handy guides that can be found at the top of the sub-forum. Work though those and explore your BIOS and test some settings. If you get stuck here we are ready to help.

    Again my apologies for the long delay in replying.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.
