ok ive done prime95 on 4.9ghz just over 7 hours following the guide.

All my settings were set to what the guide had said.

Only thing changed were

turbo votage: +1.76v
Internal PLL overvoltage: enabled

are my temps ok? would this be considered completely stable? also looked at event logs.. no criticals, errors or warnings during the 7 hour test.

feedback or advice on anything i should change on my 4.9ghz test would be helpful.

tried for 5ghz at 1.3v crashed after 8 mins. never tried anything higher koz my temps were around 75'C mark.
any advice on changing FSB? its on 100mhz maybe upping it to 101mhz or 102mhz, too dangerous or?
want to see if the chip i have is capable of running prim at 5ghz stable for a few hours.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico....been living in South Carolina for 5 years now.... Let me know if you need any tips on where to go visit or eat!! i can tell you where the best places are for everything thumb.gif




also cant you RMA them? they usually take weeks to come back....so the vacation might kill some of that time!

+1.76v? Sure you dont mean +.176v? whats your vcore under load? Almost anything above 1.5v is gonna degrade that chip over time. So a 1/4v over that is pretty high. People run that under LN2.

Obviously it was a typo. At that voltage his chip would be dead.

Its cool dude. Thats probably where I went wrong when I first was trying to OC my chip. I think I might have applied too much voltage, now I have to run 1.46v to get 4.6mhz stable.

yeh sorry guys was a typo. meant "+.176v TURBO voltage.

my vcore is 1.264v (it shows in the image i posted up)
4.9GHz, MAX temps are 69'C, 73'C, 73'C, 71'C (4 cores left to right) prime95 for 7 hrs (settings are kennys recommened ones.)

does my 4.9 ghz run seem safe?
should i down clock to 4.8 where all cores max temps are 64'C and below after 12hrs prime?
or should i give 5ghz a shot?

tried 1.3v vcore at 5ghz. after 8mins crashed (WHEA UNCORRECTED ERROR). temps were around 74-78'C
should try higher vcore? or keep 4.9 but increase FSB? or any other suggestions?

Just some advice or tips. or................. just forget about attempting 5ghz lol (im sticking with the noctua d14 cooler no plans for watercooling system)

Vcore and temps look great. Good Job thumb.gif

I wouldnt touch the Base clock just use the multiplier.

ok guys so theres a Lord Xeb guy that says 1792 FFTs @ 1min intervals is much better for stressing than your test, Anythoughts. Ive been playing around with what he said and so far, ive found it to be true. Ive gotten errors to pop up with his test quicker than the test in here (not to say that this isnt effective, just want a different opinion, and a level headed discussion)

let me elaborate: Basically the idea is that the small FFTs "only tests your on-die cache, and only level 1 or something (ie a very small part of it)" (from another poster on the same thread). This is where the heat comes from. The heat from the 8k tests is not really simulating real world scenarios. The 1792s basically thrash your cpu, drop it out of load, thrash it again, and do this indefinitely. You should never come anywhere close to the heat produced by small FFts.

I didnt explain that near as well as the other thread did. But im trying!
