stable overclock?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I had my E6400 CPU clocked at 3.2 Ghz, it ran fine no errors under prime95 (4 instances) on error on the distributed computing, and no rndom reboots but it wuln'tlet me play C&C generals zero hour, until I clocked it down to 2.8 Ghz still overclocked bt not as far I have 2 GB Mushkin 6400 green RAM, and the Asus P5B Deluxe Wifi/AP Mobo...

anyone have any ideas why it won't play at 3.2 Ghz, or how I can get it to play at 3.2Ghz?

Greetings,

Filling in your specs will help members assist you.

This is a guess, but have you loosened the timings marginally, or given a little more power to the core?

The person who introduced me to overclocking recommends 4 instance because it tests not only the overclock but the multitaking of each core.

dotcomthese: I just downloaded it and Ill hae my system d a stress test soon

I still haven't the util yet, but I'm at 3.2 Ghz (with the Zalman 9500), the unit I'm sendng back on the distributed computng, are all valid so far and C&C generals plays fine on my system, suspect t's perfectly stable but I'll run the util tonight.

That's an odd situation.....unsure how it could pass 4 Prime runs but error out on Generals.

how long did you run Prime for? At least 8 hours?

I ran it once for over 8 hours, and I took a screenshot of me priming it for 6 hours 5 minutes http://www.overclock.net/1387837-post148.html
