Overclocking a CPU in Ubuntu
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.
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.
