Default Overclocking Intel's Core i7 920

In a nutshell, the Core i7 920 is an overclocking monster and it delivers industry leading video encoding, image compressing, thread munching behemoth and a great value CPU. However, it sits in an expensive new platform that sniffles at games, still. Most of us will want to wait this launch out and see what happens as DDR3 kits drop in price and new X58 boards are launched.

First TR and now Bit-tech, doesn't seem to be any issue hitting 200MHz QPI anymore.

Well, besides cooking the MSI board...

Unfortunately this is as far as we got on our early revision 1.1 board. We had set it up, got to know the BIOS a little and overclocked it to 4GHz - matching the Asus - then tried to burn it in a bit with some Prime95. And burn it we did - the board lasted about 30 seconds before one of the memory MOSFETs burnt out in a puff of blue smoke.
