Help needed, nOOb at OC'ing.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guyz... I am new to this so any and all help is appreciated. I have only messed with the Vcore and the basic multiplier. Turned all power savings settings off, etc....I also have overclocked my videocard but ill post in a different thread for that. These graphs are after 4-6 hours of intense counter strike.

Is this a good stable clock?? I have only crashed once since clocking it this high(I just upped the volts by .125). Any help with tweaking or stabilizing frame-rates

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97
Corsair 600W

Here are my current OC stats.
Vcore: 1.425
Multiplier: 22x

Run Prime95 on the first test for 30 minutes, if no errors then run the full test for a good few hours. I maybe wrong but someone who is more advanced will correct me if I am.

But on your cpu overclock thats a good speed and good voltage, I have overclocked mine through the multiplier only and got 4GHz so far, could go to 4.2GHz on stock voltage, I've not tested it yet.

PS as for your stability, nobody but you will know, by running Prime95.

Whats your current volatage @ 4.1 ghz?

Stock voltage, around 1.2V at full speed, it sits at less than 1V when it throttles back with cool & quiet. I reckon I can go as high as 4.5GHz on stock voltage, still experimenting.
