cause I'm lazy. biggrin.gif
That, you already said! LOL.
Anyway, be lazy all you want
, watch your temps and voltages...I also tried the auto overclocking, and sadly (but it's almost always the case), the AUTO-OC voltage is too high for the achieved clocks...
I run a simple 4.4GHz, 1.26V MANUAL mode, Cache set to 3.9GHz AUTO VOLT on that, set my ram at appropriate speed/volts, everything else on AUTO, exept speedstep....I keep my CPU locked-in at 4.4GHz at all time....
It's stable in Intel XTU, 65 degrees celsius MAX temp, also stable in Battlefield 3 MP...
Of course, I don't qualify in this topic for OC, because the testing has to include this::
The following benchmarking tests must be used in order to ensure the overclock is stable:
Prime 95 - small FFT test - 6 hours min.
Prime 95 - large FFT test - 6 hours min.
Prime 95 - blend test - 6 hours min.
Intel Burn Test (IBT) - 10 cycles min.
I didn't do it because I'M LAZY!!!!!!
