just did a 32M run with my daily 4.7ghz oc, is it any good like this?
nice, bad, sell your comp? ..lol
-3C outside, my 6C idle looks good ...lol
just found this "old" 5.2ghz super pi, 1M tho
so i could push more, maybe a 5.3ghz max idk yet..
is running super pi any good for stability testing?
o, and is ramspeed very important to get good scores?
more then cpu speed i mean
Not just the comp, a lot of it is the cooler. But many people have spent more on watercooling than I did on the phase, been running it all day from 5.3 to 5.6. Tried running IBT at 5.4ghz for a while but keeps stopping at the 6th loop, can't figure out which voltage it wants more or less of.
Superpi 32m is good for a quick test of memory stability, & ram speed/timings do make a difference in it. Only a few milliseconds in 1m, seconds in 32m. Benching superpi is like the olympics, milliseconds can make the difference between 1st & 50th place.
Cpu speed is generally better, but if the memory sucks & using the wrong OS people tweaking their system can do better with lower clockspeed
You can always check hwbot, just type 3770k in the search & then compare results in the different benchmarks with other 3770ks, page 24 is getting around the 4700Mhz speeds (dumo near the top, 4500mhz with fast ram beating others clocked higher)
