Phenom II 955 - 3.8GHz to 4.0GHz - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Yeah, IBT 5 times is no way enough. I always run the computer 10 hours on prime95 for each new overclock setting while it's churning away gpu and cpu folding. Then when I was satisfied with my 3.8Ghz, I told it to calculate an ANSYS project for 24 hours whilst doing the same folding, only then did I feel it was satisfied.

There would be times when the cpu would pass the 10 hours prime95, but fail at the 24 hour ANSYS test, which ultimately meant that it was a fail, and I needed to increase the voltage again

For each change I do when testing I always run at least 20 runs of LinX before I try to raise or lower something. Once I'm satisfied that it is semi-stable I then put it up for around 100 runs for 24/7 usage.

WOW! My Rev. C2 did 4GHz with that much voltage!

My Rev. C3 can do 4GHz with 1,45 or even less!
