And by "stable" do you mean rock solid? As in I wouldn't ever have a blue screen whilst folding?
It will "kinda" rock solid. You shouldn't get BSOD when folding or anything.

Just remember, even if you didn't get error or BSOD with prime95 but BSOD with other software, it doesn't means you shouldn't bother using it anymore for stress testing. Prime95 required at least 48 hours to complete full cycle of test, if I remember correctly. CPU have many instructions in it, no stress test program can test all possible combinations. That is why you get BSOD with one stress test program but not with others. This also why we use more than one stress test program to test stability.

Of course, it's not FAN with high RPM you need to use but a FAN with better CFM rating than intake FANs.
When using STRAP 125, VCORE doesn't go down much even when CPU idle. This & living in an area with high ambient temperature can make CPU idle temp higher. So, I much prefer max out the multiplier & adjust BCLK a little bit, only a little bit (103 - 107), for overclock. This way when idle or only browsing & watching movie, VCORE will go down to 1.0xxV. This can contribute to lower operating temperature. Of course for higher overclock, will need to use STRAP 125. I did not say don't use STRAP but it's everyone preferences, what they want from their CPU. In my case, it's good to see CPU temps are at middle to higher 30s at 31C ambient while browsing, watching youtube & movies. With STRAP 125, I got lower 40s instead. Of course, temps under load are the same either use STRAP or not.
I noticed a 3* difference at idle between 100 and 125 strap. Between 100x43 and 125x37 I noticed a 15* peak temp diff. If your ambient air temp is that bad you need to go buy a 60.00 window mount a/c unit. I of course never directed the said post at you anyways concerning straps

So I successfully locked down 4.6Ghz @1.36v w/ hyper threading. I will now try for 4.8-5Ghz again. Ambient temp was 32*C. If I don't get it though, at least I have a good OC profile to fall back on.

I used AIDA from there on and it resulted in much better results:



10 hours folding from today while I am making some adjustments for the August foldathon. Only thing that sucks is I have to go back to my 4.6 profile when I want to fold with both of my 570's.

I can use my 4.9 profile to fold on the cpu and 1 gpu

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2434311

I know most people say they need to raise the voltage after a month or so but I've been running for 3 months with no issues so far. Could there still be a chance of that?

I hope it stays this way tongue.gif

i know. I just expressing my opinion. There are so many configurations we can use for overclock.

I already have A/C in my room. Even with A/C off, highest temp never exceed 65C at worst ambient. I run multiple VMs but only games stress CPU more. When stress test, it never reached 80C @4.5GHz. I'm not worried with temp when under load, either stress testing or regular usage. My casing have good air flow to keep temp in check. For moderate OC, e.g. 4.5 - 4.6GHz, I like to see lower temp when idle & light usage. That is why I chose multi+bclk+offset over multi+strap(+offset/manual). Of course, when I go for higher OC, e.g. 4.8GHz or higher, I don't mind it idles higher because at that point only temps under load are important.

If voltages in check, meaning the difference between Vcore & Vccsa, and DDR3 & Vccsa not exceed the recommended range, and also Vtt not too high (<1.2V), it's unlikely CPU will degrade that fast.

Edit: I also have my memory voltage at ~1.65V but the sticks are overclocked and are quad-channel.

So with similar settings, I was able to get 5 hours out of P95 instead of the usual 3. I think it may have something to do with my RAM settings. Regardless I am staying @ 4.6GHz since that seems to be the sweet spot and I can do that with HT enabled @ 1.36v. 4.8GHz is definitely doable, but requires a lot of patience which I'm running out of right now haha.
