    So I guys I was looking around for guides to setting your voltages. Now I found a lot of application specific Posts but nothing that was written as kind of a guide on how too.....
    I have been overclocking for awhile but I am aiming to go higher and just want a good place to go review somethings.
    I'm sure there is a post right in front of me and if it were any closer it would probably hit me in the face.:D But if anyone out there has some good links or good How to posts you are aware of I would much appreciate them.

    ********* It would help if they are done on a gigabyte board with a Intel CPU Nut it doesn't have to be I will still get the Idea;) ***************************

    Voltages differ for everyone. You might want to try googling your motherboard, but for processors, it's up to you to determine what the best voltage is through stability testing.

    the best thing i can suggest is go threw and use the "search" button for your set up. There has been quite a few threads on your chip alone.

    I'm not trying to be a d1ck on the fact of not showing you, but there is a few set ups out there that you might be able to find the stuff your needing.

    As for when I had my Q9550.. 780i/790i could do stock volts at 3.2/3.4ghz. 3.6ghz iirc was about 1.35v and it stuck with 3.8ghz... 4ghz takes some tinkering to get to, but if your board is a oc'er then it's able to do so. My problem with the chip was both my 7xxi boards had fsb holes.. So, no ocing much more then 4ghz for me..

    Ocing is all done with countless times rebooting, resetting and so forth. Just note, on air, I don't think anything above 1.45v on cpu should be tried 24/7..

    But, you'd probably be able to get most out of what your looking for with the "search" function that we have here.. It's a very helpful function. Their adding more stuff when they can. A lot better then it was when I first started here.

    CC Thanks guys yeah I have done the Google thing already. But I might be mistaken but I seem to remember someone once telling me a sight that was a search engine type of sight........ And what you could do is actually enter your specific Hardware and it would give you a whole list of what other people were doing with that same set up.

    "And no it's not called google for the smart asses that are going to write that back LOL;) "

    I don't know maybe I'm just going bonkers. I was able to get my CPU up to 4.0 just recently with what I thought was a decent voltage and what I thought was stable but I just didn't feel like my RAM was that stable overclocked that high.

    So with that being said when you guys are testing voltages settings....... do you feel that it is better to start at lower setting and mover up or higher settings and move down?

    That's kind of more the stuff I'm looking to review..... that and since I am planning on going for a higher O.C. I am looking to find out what some of these other wired settings do. Like for instance..... The Advanced settings CPU clock Drive/PCI Express Clock Drive/CPU clock Skew/MCH Clock Skew...... Things of that nature. If someone here thinks they might be able to shed some light on some of these I will list all the settings I have questions on.

    See, the search feature via TPU is a great!! I've found a lot via that little thing!
