4.9GHz 2500k on air, should I try for 5.0?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been doing a prime blend using 15/16gb of my ram for going on 8 hours, the max temperatures are 68 72 73 and 70. Currently i'm at bios vcore 1.45, and llc level 6, in OS the vcore is 1.47 on load, should I push it up and try for 5.0GHz at 1.5v? or should I just stop here for air.

what happens when you try for 5ghz on your current volts? If you haven't already I'd push it to 5ghz leaving other settings the same and see how you get on.

What air cooler are you using?

I say go for it, but I wouldn't stay at 5ghz. Do it and validate it!

I'm using the frio with mx-4, i think I got the paste just right this time. before at this voltage/clock it would be 78+ on all cores. I'm going to try 5.0 with these current settings as soon as it hits the 8 hour mark (4 minutes.)

I can validate it now, I'm going for a stable clock ^_^ I'm pretty sure this chip can boot at 50x at 1.35 volts, just not stable at all tongue.gif

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! worker 2 (core 2?) stopped working 2 minutes before my 8 hours stable, does that mean I'm going to have to bump up the voltage? frown.gif

edit: looks like tomorrow I'm going to have to bump up the voltage and re-prime with 13gb of ram.

thats still stable enough for me! why do 8 hours if it will fail 1min before or after? its like doing 24 hours but it would fail on 25! as i say again, its stable enough for me

5.0 was not happening on anything under 1.51v core, so i stopped. I stepped down to 4.5GHz for my 24/7 (http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2222692) but if i need to i can boot at 54x just to validate biggrin.gif
