What's the revision on your i7 920?  C0 or D0?  They have different voltage requirements.  For C0 processors, if you're trying to overclock to around 200 MHz QPI then you might want to use 1.35 VCore as a starting point but you will need more.  For D0 processors, a good starting point for 200 MHz QPI is 1.30v.

thanx boredgunner, so I still can do all the others stuff? it wont be a problem? another thing...
my temps are: 
cpu 72*C
NB 58*C
Vreg 48*C
system 34*C
it's ok? or I will need to cool my computer even more before the overclocking?

You can run CPU-Z to find out your CPU revision.
 
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
 
Your CPU idles at 72 degrees Celsius?  Way too high.  Be sure to monitor the CPU core temps as well.  I highly recommend RealTemp.  
 
http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/
 
For stress testing, go with IntelBurnTest and/or Prime95.  For IntelBurnTest, run it for at least 20 passes.  For Prime95, you might want to do at least 4 hours for all of the different tests.
 
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Benchmarks/IntelBurnTest.shtml
 
Run that after an overclock.  You should be able to get a decent overclock if you have a decent aftermarket CPU cooler.

It says it in CPU-Z.  Here is an example.  See the black oval in this image.

hi, just one quick question here.
 
This is the first time I've ever used a hi-en mobo like evga x58 3x sli classified (760). My CPU is i7 950 and I wonder what is the safe voltage for it? I've started at 1.35v but it's blue right after the change the settings and I scared to raise the voltage without knowing the safe margin is.
 
Thanks in advanced.

I´m wondering which CPU revision Jacob used and if he stress tested his system. The voltages (1.47 W/O Vdroop) will burn your cpu or mosfetts on mb, especially with vtt +300.
I don´t recommend this guide. Even on watercooling I won´t dare to put this settings. Jacob should post some IntelBurn stress tests ;)

I've been saying this every time I see a template with these settings, they don't even have to say what guide they followed, I just know. I think It should be taken down. Good for the 920 C0, but that's it. Not very clear on "HOW" to overclock. Most new Over Clockers just put these values in and some expect to run at 4.2GHz. I think one person has burned his board with this guide. I always point them to Shansmi's and Miahallan's Guide in the stickys so they don't burn/blow something up.
When I go for Vantage runs is the only time I push my system this far. I don't like to go past 1.45v and +250 VTT if I can help it.

Yes, you´re right. It should be taken down. Burning it´s board/cpu is easy following this guide. Even your max voltages are pretty high and should´nt be applied with aircooling.
Btw. Greets from a small town in north Germany to Japan ;)

Ok, so what should be changed in this guide?  Maybe post the changes here and ask Jacob if he could update it.  Personally, I like the screenshots and readability.  Quote his OP and make changes as you see fit (in red) and ask him to update.

Ocerclocking is´nt as easy as Jacob posted.
Do it his way with the risk of damaged hw.
Read and understood many good oc guides. This begins with a 1.47 (W/O) vdroop. This is a killer.
If you don´t believe me, just follow Jacobs guide.
Don´t blame me for RMA´s ;)

He warned you that 1.475v was just an example and you'd have to tweak to find your own stability.  But yes very high especially for your D0 chips.  Jacob used an i7 920 C0 (original) which is why he didn't kill his CPU.

Your question doesn't seem to make sense.  Memory speed is dependent on the memory frequency.  Check the BIOS for your current settings.

My web browsing is working much slower after this using any browser. However applications and games run way better. Followed this guide on the bios end only.
Here's what I have:
i7 920 revision d0
corsair xms ddr3 7-7-7-10
x58 sli micro
 
nm I got it working. The CAS latency was wrong
