Intel Sandy Bridge-E Overclocking - Safe Voltage Ranges, Quad Channel Kits, Thermal Solutions and LN2 Temperatures VRNews Nov 14th, 11, 05:07 PM #1




With the release of Sandy Bridge-E today, budding overclockers will once again need to familiarize themselves with a new architecture and platform - starting with official safe operating voltages to run the chips, Quad Channel XMP 1.3 memory kits, bundled air/water thermal solutions for the new LGA 2011 socket and optimum LN2 temperatures clocking potential.

nah considering the TDPs, you need a heatpipe tower for any overclocking

"Our friends at Asus, who have tested a large number of chips, tell us that most Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition processors can easily hit 4.5GHz with good air or liquid cooling. 80-90% of the CPUs can hit up to 4.6GHz, 60-70% can do 4.7GHz, and approximately 50% of the CPUs can hit the 4.8GHz mark with the right combination of voltage (1.4v to 1.5v) and a powerful liquid cooler." - HotHardware
