In an OC'n process. - Page 2

post #11 of 19
and you dont need to run prime95 for that long..i let it run for an hour or so...unless you sit on your computer and run very stressing apps for 12 hours at a time..there is absolutly no need..and oc your processer to the max really isnt needed either..unless its bottlenecking your current graphics card or are editing..it wont make your every day useage faster..

The reason such a high amount of stability is recommended is because of silent data corruption being a possibility in the background, regardless of what you run on a normal day of PC usage. For example, the day you boot the computer and something in Windows is suddenly broken and it costs you a reinstall. Things of this nature. That said, 12 hours of Prime95 with Rounding Error Checking enabled is more than enough for most people. IBT also can determine processor stability, but not so much on the system bus or RAM/IMC.

The ultimate test is Folding@Home for a couple days, as this can even make "stable" overclocks crack under the strain. My chip needs 1.512 to fold, but eats Prime95 and IBT at 1.475.

That said, no chip run outside factory specifications' blanket can ever be 100% stable in all conditions, so as long as it's working for you, that's about as good as you can get.

i dont know one person that ever happend too..but if you dont mind it..i guess it will never hurt..but when i play with settings i dont like to wait a day just to see if its stable...ususally you know within the first min or two if its going to run thrue or not.

It was theoretical, and usually doesn't come from just a CPU instability. Background corruptions can happen pretty bad when your RAM is unstable, and that generally means things that get written to disk end up written wrong because of Windows write-caching management (which can break Windows, or your data).T'was just an example. Wasn't saying you were wrong, as I said "if it works for you, that's about as good as you can get", yeh. thumb.gif

I'm stable at 3.8 GHz after 8 hours of prime 95. I had to loosen my timings after reading "Slappas" Am3 essentials thread. I found tightening the timings only helped at lower clock speeds which confirmed what "Slappa" said about keeping your timings stock. What are your guys timings and what can I do to increase my overall clock?

Yes RAM. I should have specified.

Tightening the timings made the system laggy, So I lowered them to stock and everything was fine.
