Okay. 3.6. Finally stable. Whew.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The moment I find something irrestibly fun, I can't stop doing it.
One of these things are overclocking.
Altho I bought a not-for-OVing coolder (Gemin II M4), I managed to get a stable OV at 3.6GHz.
630
I know, there are you guys who are computer geniuses and have super-rigs with liquid cooling and 5+ GHz OV, GTX590 and stuff like that, so this is really nothing for you guys, but this is kinda big for me, as I'm new in this game.
I disabled thermal management and hyperthreading and all the powersaving features. My overheating problem was caused by needlessly high voltages (about 1.18V now, went to 1.3V when the overheat happened), so I notched it down a bit to 1.18V.
Max temp is 92C with an 1-hour Prime95 session (blend). Better than my previous 100C.
Idles at about 50C.
Any advice will be welcomed!

Peace :)V

thanks smile.gif you're the second guy to recommend this. I'll buy this and a new full tower case this week or whenever I get time.

edit: how much will this boy drop my temp? 85C?

You're welcome! Make sure to take pics after it's all said and done and push this 920 to the limit! (while keeping an eye on your temps ofc)
