Need help configuring bios in Asus Rampage IV Extreme for i7 3960

Recommended Posts

Hallo everyone. I have a question about the settings in bios (motherboard Asus Rampage IV Extreme) for a i7 3960. Previously I decide to overclock my old configuration with i7 975 and Rampage III Extreme with the good suggestion from IDAHOSURGE which help me with a perfect guide which I'm still using from 2011 and that could be found here http://forum.avsim.net/topic/327338-need-help-configuring-bios-for-i7-975/.

Now I ask someone of you if there is anyone who can help me to overclock the i7 3960 on at least 4.4 or 4.5 ghz stable with Asus Rampage IV Extreme (mine will be the Black Ed.) 

Below I list the specifications of the components that I'm going to assemble:



CPU: I7 3960 with hydro cooler Corsair H100i

MOBO : Asus Rampage IV Black Edition x79 socket 2011

RAM: 4x4 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 2133 MHz (PC3-17066)Timing: CL 8-10-10-27 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS) 1,65 Volt

GRAPHIC: ASUS R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 memory ddr5 4GB.

CASE : Antec 1200 v3


SSd1: Samsung Evo 840 120 Gb only for OS Win 7 ultimate

SSd2: Samsung Evo 850 1 Tbyte only for FSX with scenery and aircraft addon

SSd3: Velociraptor 600 Gb for some additional external program ex. REX,UTX,FSX GLOBAL 2010, ActiveSky NEXT...


Thanks in advance for your suggestion.

Sincerly Andrea.
