My System Specs

Default Success ! 4Ghz

Hey all, just got my i7 930 to 4Ghz. Going to do some long term testing tonight. and then see if I can bring down the voltages a bit. any recommendations on how to make sure clocks are stable and minimal voltage required? Thanks

I might try to get some more out of if, but first im going to tweak the voltage as much as I can to get the best efficency. I'm very happy I got the Hyper 212, wasnt sure how it would handle 4Ghz but i am very satisfied of what it can do :P

Who knows, maybe I will get some folding going on this cpu in the near future heh.
