    this is actually the wrong place for asking about the i7 and mb overclocking but it is very ez to do with such a low overclock on the 17 920

    just increase the CPU_Bclk FSB from the stock number ( dont remember what it is off thw top of my head) but start out with a number 10 more...then reboot and let it go into windows....restart and back into bios and do the same only now go 5 numbers more..( keep doing this till your @ 3.4 ) you should now be in the 170-180 area for CPU_BCLK FSB ...with an I7 920 you should get to 3.5 -3.6 even without over volting...but certainly to 3.4 with no voltage increase

    Only if he has a D0 and not a C0 like mine I needed to up my voltages on the vcore to 1.29V for my OC to be stable. C0's are easy to OC but need a little more juice, but the D0's are insanely easy to OC. My friend got his to 4.0GHz without even moving any voltages just to BCLK. It was Prime95 stable for 5 hours and then crashed. So he upped the vcore to 1.25V and its perfectly stable. Ran 8 hours of Prime and still going strong at 73*C.
