I have gotten my 2.20GHz over clocked to 2.50GHz. I know it's not much of an over clock but 3.0GHz nor 2.75GHz was stable.(it froze allot)

I've overclocked an old Pentium 4 from 2.4 GHz, to 3.0 GHz, it ran fine.

Any advice on how to figure out the RAM timings?

(Jun 09 '10 at 12:59) sulljason sulljason's gravatar image

my Q6600 i got to 3.36Ghz stable, but didnt have the cooling to go over that.

also got my I7 920 to 4ghz with a few clicks, very simple, but didnt need that much power, and it was heating up alot. would easily go over but it's pointless for me.

I've over-clocked my 2.66 i7 to about 5Ghz. The only thing it was doing was converting a HD video. I couldn't run anything else and sometimes it has crashed. Oh well.

A friend of mine overclocked his i7 to 4 ghz, but i haven't tried mine because i'd rather not burn my processor out with my crappy heat sink

You need to find the CPU documentation to find out what overclocking range your cpu will tolerate. I had a machine where I monitored the temperature of the CPU as I was overclocking it to make sure I wasn't giving it more power than the documentation said it would handle.

Which processor are you trying to overclock?
