Overclocking a CPU in Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Good staff ...
I would like to overclock my CPU but not the faintest idea how to do, so I ask your help.
My hardware is:
P6T SE Motherboard
GeForce GTX 650 OC 1GB
CPU Intel i7-920 quad core 2.66 GHz SKT 1156
Team Elite Memory DDR3 3x2GB 1333MHz triple channel
Hard Drives Toshiba SSD Solid State Drive 128GB Q Series
Western Digital Blue 500GB 7200rpm 3GB / s
Western Digital Green 1.5TB 7200rpm 3GB / s
Sound Card Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum

The machine is usually connected 24x7, and I'm looking for a setup that fits what I intend, I hope that with your help can get to "she."

I thank you your answers.
Be well.

Most seasoned and experienced overclockers, overclock by changing parameters in the BIOS, not in the OS.


There are literally hundreds of overclocking guides for the i7 920 / socket 1366 platform.  Just google the search terms "how to overclock intel i7 920".  Hint, if you look around our forums you'll probably find a guide or two also  :)
