    Overclocking a CPU in Ubuntu


    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
    DVD-RW PLEXTOR PX-891SA
    DVD-RW LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22LS50

    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.

    Overclocking is a hardware thing not OS so you need to be looking at your motherboard. Also if server is for 24/7 consider overclocking generates more heat so I would be asking it the is it really needed. I would wait till you have your server configured for production needs and loads, then do performance tests and look at what your sustained cpu loads are.

    Here's a link that will help you get started researching overclocking.
