As of now our 7960X is capable of 4.4GHz with reasonable voltages and temperatures. We set LLC to Turbo, the input voltage to 2.1v, VCore to 1.18v, and XMP to enable. It seems that with the most recent BIOS versions we also need to disable C-States if we want to keep the CPU frequency from fluctuating. While we were able to take our G.Skill 3600Mhz quad channel kit to 3600Mhz with ease, we also were able to handle a GEIL EVO SPEAR at 3200Mhz with ease.
