    This thread that might also help us noobs understand how the i7 architecture works. I think they do a good job of explaining it.

    sounds a lot like a64 overclocking, except with multipliers for ram, haven't used a phenom so i'm not sure what might have changed with overclocking on phenoms and phenomII's

    looks pretty straight forward too, i like that.

    i7 overclocking can be fairly straight forward, at the lower speeds of 4Ghz or less. Getting over that can often get a bit more complicated as keeping track of 3 different voltages and 3 different speed controls (core multi, QPI multi, mem multi), all for just the CPU that have to be balanced, it can get a tad hairy.

    I was amazed how simple a 1Ghz overclock was to achieve though. And getting away with it on sub stock vcore is impressive as well. But this is a VERY light overclock for these chips. To get to this point, I can pretty much safely ignore QPI multi and voltage for now. Going much further then this would get complicated

    My Excel file does most of it as well and besides I prefer knowing why it should be this setting. To easy for me.
