Help another n00b push a 950 to the limit?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So heres the low down

Im not completely new I know whats what but when it gets to voltages and BIOS settings I need to be show the ropes thus I came to the best of the best I would gladly post any info needed. The Gigabyte x58 BIOS is really good for noobs with auto settings everywhere. Currently I'm runnning 4.2 but im not sure how stable things are or if everything is tuned to perfection. HT is on and EIST disabled.

My Rig:
i7 950
Gigabyte x58 USB3 MB
3x 2GB Kingmax 1333Mhz CL9 1.5v
Corsiar HX 850
Cooling: Immersed in custom tank of Liquid Paraffin with a radiator & 120mm fan.

I Eagerly await mentorship.. Thanks!

For stability test I first run 1 hour of OCCT on auto (medium data set, 1hr). If it gets through that then I run at least 8 hours of Prime95 blend, then 8 hours small and large FFT. If it can get through all that then I call it stable. Usually if your OC is unstable it'll crash within 10 mins of OCCT. That's just my opinion I know many people on here like to be 12/24 hour prime stable.

Okay thanks MMJA I started OCCT and my first core reached 100C within a minute but my CPU temp is only stated as 46C how is this possible?

What program are you using for CPU temp? With CoreTemp it shows my core temps around 70 degrees under load but the Asus AI Suite reports it to be like 50 degrees. I would trust CoreTemp or RealTemp over the other programs.
