Many will suggest you leave well enough alone with your banging system till you fully read and understand the contents of this. http://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ing-guide.html

You will burn something up.

Understand, THEN deliberately break it.

Yep you definitely need to understand the BIOS first, do some reading

I used this guide
EVGA X58 Overclocking Guide

Plus had read a few of the guides on the evga forums for X58 in the Sticky INDEX section

And this is my settings on an i7 950

Bios 70 on LE + OCZ Gold Ram


Ran Prime95 and LinX after for quite a few tests to check stability.
