Heh. Thanks for the non stop telling me its not right. 63c now at 1.25v, 5c drop lol. I'll keep running prime blend tonight for stability. If flyingsaucers is running fine at 1.25v's, then I think its going to run well.

Do you have the exact same spec as O/P? (case, fans, speed, airflow,ambient, hardwares etc??) the temps differ with different setups. u also failed to notice his vcore as he stated and that was not high for that vcore. Overall ur comment is just pure Fail

It wasn't directed at you. I was clarifying my position to another member.

You're right, I did fail to notice his vcore, but I believe you said "it's not that high for that clock" which is in fact a very different statement from what you just made in the quoted post. And you're right, my setup is different than his. However, if I'm getting the same temps with an inferior setup at a higher clock, then something isn't correct, which is what I'm trying to get at. My post isn't fail, you just are misinterpreting it.

"in all honesty though i dont think 68c is that high with that vcore. thats the temps i get with 30c ambient running prime blend.. "

at which part of this sentence did i say "it's not that high for that clock"
I said your post is fail because you just stated purely that his temps are high for his overclock then start comparing your temp results to his without any reasoning behind it.

My apologies. I thought you had posted earlier. I had confused you with another poster. However, for 4.2GHz on a Sandy Bridge running a high end cooler, his temperatures are indeed quite high. If no comparison is made, then my point cannot me made as clearly if I were just saying it without information to help state my case. I fail to see how that makes my post "fail", if I present a point with evidence to back up my claim.

I ran prime 95 for a bit, but noticed it wasn't maxing out my CPU. Well, it was using 100% usage across all cores according to Task Manager, but my processor was only using 82 watts and prime was using 1.6gb of ram. So I switched back to Intel Burn Test, ran it 40 times, took about an hour, and my cores didn't get any higher than 66c, which is a huge improvement over 1.3v's temps. I'm assuming 1.3v's the temps would of been higher than 68c since I ran it on average only 4-7 times. So 1.25v's it is. Ran stable, no issues

Though, do you guys think 40 times is enough?
post #37 of 40
Your good. IBT REALLY raises those temps up! Like 5-8 C Above Prime95 which is a benchmarking program. Your temps are great. i hit a peak of 72 C @ 4.4 GHZ in IBT...During normal load temps barely skim 55C. your fine. These chips can go up to the 90's before they start throttling. i like keeping it below 72 C. But again during normal load it barely skims 55C. your good! And i score around 120 Gflops so normal. And you wanna run a 12 hour prime95 blend. I swear i got an error on 1.310 @ 4.4 GHZ after 8 hours! Got it bumped a little to high......Tryed 1.325 @ 4.5 GHZ.......45 mins and an error.......so now its 1.325 @ 4.4 GHZ which is a little bit more than i would want.......Gonna try to get that down to 1.320 or 1.315. Yeah my chip aint exactly good.........My E8400 was running a stock fan.......1.135 @ 3.6 GHZ......... before it fried in a public storage facility..........my sandy is meh. nothin special. Pretty average my sandy........thinkin of sellin it maybe. idk.

it really depends on how much you wanna stress test to measure how stable your overclock is. I hear cases where people get 24hrs prime blend stable then suddenly couple month down the road they get bsod. So basically, to save time and power i would run prime blend (most reliable stress test for sandy bridges) for at least 2 hrs at custom ram settings, 1 gb lesser than ur total capacity and call it a day.

that's interesting.... I've been running mine for over 6 months and not had a single BSOD and same goes for all the club members in my thread (exception IDLE bsod which has got to do with the C-states).


OP head over to the Sandy Stable Club for more info on true stability testing of the sandybridge CPU's

EDIT:

read the first page of the thread or as much as you can regarding stability and IBT.

Hope that helps

Ran Intel Burn Test for two hours, 85 runs this time and no issues =D Also, if you noticed, my temps are pretty much identical to my last run. I didn't reload hardware monitor, my temps never went past 64c this time =D I sat here for two hours monitoring it, and yes, I was bored So everything seems stable and runs great Thanks for all the help guys! And sorry for all my noob questions/comments. Last time I overclocked a processor was four years ago with my E6600 @ 3.2ghz.
