Gigabyte GA-EX58A-UD5 motherboard with 3.2Ghz Intel i7-930 – dated hardware with still some kick in it – with G.Skill 2133Mhz Ares memory. Water cooling setup permitted lazy (auto voltage) overclocking within thermal limits i.e. CPU core temperatures well below 100C under full load.

@ 4.00Ghz/4.16Ghz (turbo), memory @ 2000Mhz..

Bios setting Value
cpu clock ratio 24x
turbo boost enabled
c3/c6/c7 state support enabled
bclk frequency 166
system memory multiplier 12
cpu clock drive 800mv
pci clock drive 900mv
memory peformance enhance extreme
channel timings 11-11-11-30
load line calibration level 2
dram voltage 1.600v

@ 4.20Ghz, memory @ 2000Mhz..

Bios setting Value
cpu clock ratio 21x
turbo boost disabled
c3/c6/c7 state support enabled
bclk frequency 200
system memory multiplier 10
cpu clock drive 800mv
pci clock drive 900mv
memory peformance enhance extreme
channel timings 11-11-11-30
load line calibration level 2
dram voltage 1.600v

Other BIOS settings, defaulted. Why faster? For smoother more responsive photo editing. Speed: you can never go back..
