My System Specs

Default X79 Overclocking

Im new to Ocing a X79 rig so I thought id ask the community and owners of a Rive Iv Black Edition Mothboard and a i7-4960x cpu of any guide I can read or tips to learn this platform for Ocing this Beast comp.

Previous Rig I used to Oc was on Intel Q6600 rig wich all I did to Oc was raise fsb setup memory dividers and tweak voltages.

Well got a account there too but site is really slow and from what iv ween they touch on one part or another. Id like to know what all settings mean and get a basic template to follow then tweak once feel comfortable with Ocing.

Use offset mode for vcore, that's the part that helped me the most on my R4E and 3930k
