New member, first overclock.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I like this site very much, it is full of helpful tips and information. So I have decided to share with you my first overclocking results.

Basic info: AMD Phenom II x4 955, GeForce 9600 GT DDR3 512 MB, 4x2GB 1333Mz OCZ DDR3
Stock settings:
CPU: 3.2GHz, x16 ratio, 200MHz FSB
GPU: 675MHz clock, 900 MHz memory clock, 1700MHz shader clock, DDR3 512 MB
3Dmark Vantage
GPU: 5486 CPU: 10074
Test 1: 15.56 FPS Test 1: 1321.20 OPS
Test 2: 16.70 FPS Test 2: 15.18 OPS
Feature test: 10.10 GTexels/s, 2.94 GTexels/s, 11.67 FPS, 22.50 FPS, 27.06 FPS, 15.25 FPS

My overclocked settings:
CPU: 3.57GHz, x16 ratio, 223MHz FSB
GPU: 750MHz clock, 1100 MHz memory clock, 1878MHz shader clock
3Dmark Vantage
GPU: 6307 CPU: 11461
Test 1: 17.66 FPS Test 1: 1502.65 OPS
Test 2: 19.32 FPS Test 2: 17.28 OPS
Feature test: 11.18 GTexels/s, 3.58 GTexels/s, 13.05 FPS, 24.95 FPS, 31.15 FPS, 16.92 FPS

Both test were run default settings except for 1360x768 resolution and three loops. I used easytune6 to overclock. Both have been tested on Prime95, and artifact test and are extremely stable.

Welcome and well done. Easytune can be useful to do quick overclocks to test out but generally most people will then go into Bios and set up the overlcock there.

How long did you run Prime95 for. Most recomend around 12-24 hours of Blend before being sure absolutely stable.

I generally do aorun 8-12 hours and then 3 hours of heavy gaming at really high settings.

Awesome! Keep up the good work!

That is a great start!

When running "Prime95" do you just run defaults and just set the time to run for 12 hrs?

Thanks all. In regards to Prime95, I did Blend test for 12 hours and Large FFT for a minute. I have been running max settings in games and get no artifacts or tears. I have minimally overclocked video cards before, and this one I have pushed to it's limits. As for now I'm using easytune till I upgrade my RAM. Found out I can be utilize 16GB instead of 8GB that I was told my system can only support.
