That way you can get a better handle of what voltage you need to increase (based on the type of BSOD for instance). If you start out with all high, then it becomes more tedious lowering thE voltages to just what you nee as there are more than one interdependent voltages to vary.

cHEERS
I'll agree to that point.

BTW the apporach I've taken is to run as low as I can with QPI/Vtt and V-Core voltage at a givin clock speed, than increase as needed for stability. Trying to find that temperature sweetspot vs stability

this is the Template from one of the Guys over at Tweaktown/Gigabyte wazza300

Good Quick guide if that is what you are after.

http://i31.tinypic.com/rs6gwn.jpg <=3.8ghz + 4.2ghz overclock template

also has the BSOD codes at the Top, so you know what to do when you see one of them. there is another good guide here.

Core i7 Overclocking Guide For Beginners

just for the sake of it.. im running a i7 D0. on a Gigabyte UD5
1.212v Vcore
QPI 1.275 since i have 12GB ;/
Ram @ 1.5v
28hrs Prime Stable.
4.2GHz HT + Turbo max temp 72c on a H50.. good enuff for me. Room temp in 23c

just takes time. and Remember to Run Prime95 or OCCT or 20 runs of Linux/IBT and watch those temps. id say a good spot would be 75c Max on the hottest core. anything over you should change the airflow or get a Better CPU Cooler, something i can't fit in my case. The NH D14 ;/

+1 on the start Low go high technique


What the guys here have said so far should give you a good idea on what you should do.

good luck.

Wazza is pretty good. I got a few tips from him as well as Lsdmasap. Lots of good info there (TweakTown's GIGABYTE forum). If you have a Gigabyte board that's the place to go.

Thanks DaGoon

On a side note, I'm not much on water cooling but I just may reconsider purchasing an H50/H70. Though I love my CPU cooler, it doesn't really handle high overclocks well. It's good for med range OC's, but going near 4gig the temps get a little too high.

I'm currently running at 3.5 with my i7-950 and avarage 74c with prime95 load.

just going to throw this in the mix, since you are thinking about the Corsair H50, H70 or the new H60.

Review is here for it. and it beat both the H50/70.. it is also alot Cheaper than both.

Yeah..... I said I "might" reconsider but..... and I worry about noise with regards to a push pull setup. Right now my system is really really quiet with the setup I currently have so.....

The other thing is if I did go with something like that, I'd have to go with the established guys as I'm kind of untrusting with having water in my system anyway. Hate to try some new guy who says "sorry, we'll get it right on the next revision"

And before I get beat up..... I've used Antec cases for years until moving to my current Cooler Master HAF X case. I've also used and still use their power supplies - see system specs

Thanks for the suggestions though.
