X2 3800+ (s939) OC-ing tips - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Thread Starter 
Allright, here we go.

I sold one of the 7900gt's I was using last week, and when I was running SLI, CPU-Z reported 1.36v or so. Now it's 1.328.

Anyway, 2900 MHz @1.33v is even nicer

I'll buy a BT in a few days. trust me

Btw. I think I read somewhere that the WR for a X2 3800+ @ air is 3420 MHz

No WR for me I guess, with my temp.

test ran for 1 hours 28 minutes..... dude....make it run for 10-12 hours. With your temps you're pushing the danger zone already. Make sure it's 100% stable...then focus on reaching that world record.

cooling is number one here. I can hit 3.0 with my processor....woopie. Im also gonna be over 65 degrees. No sense in OC'ing if you 're wasting money

BTW.....I can hit 2.8, 2.9, and 3.0 all loading fine, and stable if I sacrafice my ram....it's SOOO low at those cpu speeds though. :_

I know, I stopped the test because i want to do play some games soon. but I will run prime during the night.

I just posted that screen to confirm that it's pretty stable at least.

It did run it for 9 hours with no errors before (I stopped it, no errors or warnings), but I didn't make any screens...

PS: It did run 4 days when I was in Oslo preparing my exams (see statbar), so it can't be very unstable. I made sure Opera and a dozen iexplorer windows + a couple of bt clients ran when I left, so it wasn't idling I think

Yeah and that's ripping apart the chip too. You're gonna THRASH the life span of it man...

Tell you what. You KNOW you can get to a clock speed.....run stock until you can get a new HS...

OR.... .Open your case and have a fan blowing cold air ito it
