Thanks kennyparker. That's the one I had in mind. It looks like it uses the same clips as the stock one uses though which are a PITA IMO. I'd prefer a back plate with screws.

Right now we are having our second heatwave of the summer. At 2PM is it 100F. No heatwave my ambient temps are around 29C/75F. I was running it in auto OC for awhile @4.4 and Real Temp reported idle temps in the mid-30s. Put it back to stock speed for now as not having the voltage fixed is not so good.

After 3 hours in Prime95 v27.7, I have BSOD with code 101, understand that I must increase the voltage.

My question is, really be necessary to increase the voltage to get through 3 hours of prime95 ?

You think 3 hours is enough? Or should I increase the voltage and spend more than 3 hours ?

Very necessary to increase voltage if you have had a bsod, especially after only 3 hours.

everyone has a different philosophy on how long to run prime95 before calling it stable...im in the 12 hours group. i personally, can't wait 24 hours to use my pc. tongue.gif

Do you really have to update the BIOS? I am kind of scared to do it..

Forgive me as I have never overclocked, but when I try to put the value to 'max' it corrects it to 500 only. It says invalid number. Am I doing this right?

Then you should lower the "minutes per FFT" from 15 to 10, to make sure you still cover all FFT lengths in 12 hours.

On the internet, age is irrelevant.

Yes, update the BIOS. Should be quick and painless. Like installing a simple program.
Yes, typing in a large number will be invalid and set it to the max which is 500 in your case.
