    Who has Overclock settings for I7 980 6 core?

    Steve from NY

      Who has Overclock settings for I7 980 6 core? I want to keep the stock cpu cooler.

       

      I'm using the Sabertooth x58 board,

      24 gigs triple channel ram, win 7 64bit

      EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD 2560MB

       

      Can anyone help me with specific OC settings?

          No, nobody can. Each cpu, motherboard, RAM combination is just slightly different and that is why is it so "expensive" in a time consuming way to overclock -- that is to take your system above the rated "sure thing" common denominator speed up to a faster speed that will still be completely reliable.

           

          Also, make sure you dump the stock cpu cooler for something better even if you plan on running stock speeds on a 6-core 980. You want to keep things cool and Intel's bundled stock coolers are never the best option to do that.
