E8400 w/ xfx 790i ultra Overclock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Finally got my overclocking skills under control and man I love overclocking, its so easy to tweak, reboot, stress, reboot, tweak, stress repeat lol

anyway my stock GHz is 3.0Ghz with the woldfale e8400
my over clock is now at 4.05GHz

Prime95 ran for about 5.5 hours of stress testing. voltage and everything will be posted later. Just felt like I accomplished something today so I wanted to post this!!! lol

RAM is unlinked at 7-7-7-19 1t





Temp log shows it never went over 65 celcius which is awesome!

Temp Log 143k .csv file

Congrats on the first overclock. A nice decent jump in performance! Temps are still manageable so get back in there and get some higher clocks!

One of my friends is still running that chip and has been for a good few years now, very solid and easy to get into OCing with. I had the E8600 with a bit more headroom for OCing and remember running it around 4.5ish for the duration I had it.

Be sure to post you rig in the profile section so it will appear the bottom of all yours posts.

thanks! and yeah im going to take it on higher, planning on hitting 5GHz just to see if it can.

ran into a wall. worker #2 is posting an error within a few minutes of hardware failure, im checking the voltage and my ram timings too because it failed at the same spot in the soft prime (lower RAM usage..

I'll definitely get my rig uploaded sometime, just sucks to type in all the numbers lmao

had to put my ram settings back to 8-8-8-24 1t (stock timings) couldn't keep my RAM tight any longer, which is really good at 1.5GHz over stock clock lol

Hitting 5Ghz may be a little optimistic! It was definitely more common on the E8600 at least. But chuck some dangerously high voltage in and go for it.

Remember, don't push too hard if you can't afford to replace the components too. Would suck breaking it in the pursuit of performance if you can't get another!

You don't have to type in all the numbers for speeds and benches, just the components is enough!
