i3 2120 overclock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
why yes i think so. its not much but its something and there is some performance increases in the overclock
rig is my sig rig but a recap is
intel i3 2120 3.3ghz
asrock exterme3 gen3
corsair h50 (push pull)
12gb of ddr3 1333
evga gtx 560ti ref speeds

the goal was 3.5ghz i did not reach that as i did not feel taking the blck up to 106.5 was safe how ever i did reach a small oc of 3.45 and there are some performance increases

superpi went from 12.571 to 11.571

temps idle 35c to 36c
temps underload went from 55c to 58c peak

tests ran to insure stability was intelburn high stress 2 lilterations , and 1 hour of blending on prime95

tests to come are skyrim in ultra 1440x900, nfs the run in ultra/high 1440x900. and other upon request

screen shots after it finishes another hour of prime 95 trying to lower vcore from 1.2 to lower

i have about the same overclock on my rig for the 2120....But thats about as far as you can take it.
some achieved 3.5 but i think you have to go down on the multiplier.
