Re: Newbie to overclocking; need help with i7 920.
You guys are great! This is very helpful.
Back to overclocking the Alienware, I don't think I ever got an answer on this one:
"Ok, so I went into my BIOS, and was able to find a way to change the BCLK from 133 to 138. This would put the memory frequency at 1380, while it is rated at 1333, so I'd change the memory divider from 10 to 8, right? The only thing I can't figure out is the Uncore Frequency... I get that it should be minimum 16, but I can't find the setting anywhere in my BIOS. Is this something that is locked on Alienware computers, or am I not looking in the right place?"
I ran LinX again with the fans turned up to 100%, and the max temp was 67C, so I've still got 3C to play with mild overclocking to practice for the big boy.
