Opinions on my overclocking?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently started overclocking my computer and all the information I've been checking out at Overclocking.net were very useful yet I am still not quite sure what I am doing. Can anyone care to give their opinion or feedback about my overclocking?

Here's what I current have my PC overclocked to.:



Everything works so far and nothing is fried *phew* , but I keep getting this warning message in Windows saying that I had a machine system check failure. Is this a problem with my memory?

Thats a pretty good overclock, whats the stock voltage?

The ultimate test is to run Orthos, let it run for as long as possible - i.e. at least a couple of hours - and download CoreTemp to check the temperature, you don't want to let it go above 55C.

Other than that, well done and rep+

It is1.325v. What is Orthos? Is that a benchmarking program like like 3DMark?

I find that normally, Orthos will fail after certain general times:

Immediately, a few minutes after, 3-4 hours after, or 6-7 hours after. Sometimes it just fails randomly after 7 hours, but I suggest at least 8 hours of Orthos. I do 24, because I fold 24/7.
