Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
MSI Eclipse SLI - MSI Eclipse SLI

"Setting the I7 965 up to run at stock speeds is a no brainer really, but to push the limits it took a little bit of trial and error. Well, a lot of trial and error. There are a few ways to go when overclocking the Core I7 processor and system. You can up the baseclock or if you have an unlocked processor the multiplier can be increased while maintaining the lower overall baseclock (133MHz). The first BIOS was not all that overclocking friendly, but the 132b BIOS changed that. Just upping the baseclock alone is not enough to get you up to the 200MHz level. Whereas the P6T was incredibly resilient when it came to recovering from a bad overclock, the MSI was not nearly as friendly. It would more often than not fail to boot after pushing the limits just to have to clear the CMOS. This resulted in a total loss of your settings so taking good notes is essential. Touching just about all of the voltages was required to get to 205x19 and 822MHz on the six gigabytes of system memory. To get there the Vcore was bumped to 1.42, the memory to 1.64v, the QPI voltage to 1.425, and the IOH to 1.4v as well as bumping the timings to the modules' default 9-9-9-24. I could boot up to a 215MHz baseclock but could not gain any stability at this level."
