I7 920 overclocking


Nov 22, 2008
i recently pushed my i7 upto 3.6 ghz
it is on stock and my temps are 45-50 degrees idle 75 load
is this healthy for the cpu should i set it at 3.2/3.4

and recommendations for a new heatsink ?
What are you getting those temps from? What are you running to get the Load temps?

Run OCCT 3.0.1 using Custom, large data set, high priority, and check "run hyperthreading as dual core. Run this for an hour and see if it passes and what temps you get at idle and max load.

I use the Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme, GREAT cooler. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8444/cpu-tri-57/Thermalright_Ultra-120_eXtreme-1366_RT_CPU_Heatsink_Socket_LGA_1366.html?tl=g40

However, I like the Coolermaster V8 even better and it's cheaper - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103055
