System and Overclocking

Recommended Posts

I have a question on my system before release:Will my system be good for the 737NGX? This is what I have currently, just wondering if someone can tell me if this is ok. I also would like to get into OverClocking my CPU. I don't know anything about this so I just wanted to know if anybody and if the PMDG Tech team/Developers can help me out on this. I would appreciate it Hugely!!System:Motherboard: MSI MSI X58 Pro-E (MS-7522)Chipset: Intel X58Processor: Intel Core i7 940 @ 2933MHz (4 Cores)Physical Memory: 12288MB (6 x 2048 DDR3-SDRAM)Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285Hard Disk: Samsung HD103SJ ATA Device (1000GB)Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate Professional Media Center 6.01.7600 (64-bit)Monitors: 3 x 24 inch (Each 1920 x 1200 @ 60 HZ) Making a total Res. of 4080 x 768 = Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital EditionSo I would really like to know how to get into Overclocking my Intel i7 940!Best Regards,Tristan

I dont think you will have any problems running the ngx i'm sure Vin's computer is a I7-920 oc to 3.2 or 3.6.I have a i7-920 D0 oc @ 4ghz and i'm positive i wont have any problems running the ngx

Hello,I'm a beginner my self u can see my spec from my sig.Multiplier: x21BCLK: 191vcore: 1.32qpi/dram: 1.3dram bus: 1.64Ram timings: 9-9-9-24I've found that anything below 1.32 was to unstable and wouldn't even boot would blue screen after windows reaches login screen.At 1.32 it's perfectly stable I'm currently using corsair H70 as well never seen temps over 70°c

Read and follow this guide:http://www.techreaction.net/2010/09/07/3-step-overclocking-guide-bloomfield-and-gulftown/Make absolutely POSITIVE you understand exactly what you're doing when you OC, especially when it comes to voltages, BEFORE you do it. One bigtime mistake in particular that I've seen people make is keying in the total voltage you're going for instead of the amount you want it raised by - that's a real easy way to fry your chip. Understand how your BIOS works before you try to do anything.

And make sure your temps are not at 70C on idle, and at stock speed. [like last time Tristan ;) ;) ] :(

Head over to Hardware Discussions, "MOBO, RAM, CPUs & Other Hardware" Lots of info and Overclockers who i am sure can give you some useful tips.Regards,

What cooler do you have too? Do not try to OC on the stock cooler if that's what it is.

go to overclockers.com they have an overclocking tutorial that you can print out and it covers the important key basics especially with specific voltages that need to be setbill

The first time I OC'd, I miscalculated the voltage and killed the proc... all comes with the OC'ing game... accept it, or don't OC.

Ive got a Cooler Master computer case :) I'll take some pics later and post them on you so guys can have a look inside :)One thing to note, Ive opened PC Wizard 2010 which tells me what I have in my computer and it says that ive got an Intel Core i7 940 @ 2933 MHz, I know that but to the right of the frequency it says:current: 1927.10 MHz .... Is this bad? Is it actually not running at 2933 MHz? 2.93 GHz?Regards,

@Locarno1I dont think you would be able to overclock much with a stock cooler.

Yeah guys, I was NOT talking about the case or case fans - I'm talking about the heatsink and fan that are sitting on top of the CPU. In Tristan's pics, that is the stock Intel cooler - under no circumstances should you try to OC with that thing on there.You need to get a good unit like the Corsair A70 (air cooler) or the H70 (water cooler).

Right!! Thankyou Ryan!! :DSoooo If I went for the Corsair A70 (air cooler) would this fit in my case? It looks awfully big! :(

@Locarno1I was going to purchase the A70 but after a lil research it would not fit in my case due to my ram heatspreaders so i purchased the Corsair H70Corsair A70 dimensions: 159.5 x 124.6 x 129 mm (WxHxD)

Excellent choice. If you want to improve even further your OC power with the H70 think about replacing it's default fans with better ones, since the ones that ships with the COrsair aren't that great. I went with the Scythe Gentle Typhoon D1225C12B5AP-15, as it moves a lot of air without making much noise. I'm waiting for the arrival, it's coming from your country, ENgland.
