This is the most recent active thread I could find about Prime95 so I would like to ask a question, my apologies if I am off topic.
My goal is to find the Core voltage required for a certain clock speed, as fast as possible - meaning, without having to stress-test for hours. So, I want to find how much core voltage I need starting from 4.0GHz and going up to 4.7GHz. I do not believe I can go higher with my system.
Is this the best way to achieve my goal, when using Prime95 v.28.5?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I've decided to use the latest version of Prime because they say it is the fastest way.
What other software could I use to achieve this?
Please understand that I am just trying to find my Vcore for these clock speeds: 4.0 , 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7GHz. After that I will stress test for stability, at 4.7GHz, using either Prime95 v.28.5 with AVX, etc disabled and/or the x264 stress test. Right now though I just wish to see how my CPU is scaling (if this is the correct term for it).@Blameless
, what is your opinion, please?
Thank you.Edited by LostParticle - 10/23/14 at 4:35am
