When to overclock

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I got my system 2 days ago, and started it up with vista for the first time today. I was wondering when is it a good time to overclock. The reason why i ask is because i don't want to burn out my chip too fast. Right now i am using water cooling and my idle temps are 25c each core and the highest they have been was 35c core 1 34c core 2 on dual orthos

I raised the FSB of my system from 1066Mhz to 1333Mhz before I even installed windows. Though to be fair, I'd already researched easily attainable bus speeds for my E6600 and motherboard before I purchased them. I'm now at 1600Mhz stable after alot of stess testing and benching.

Hey, I raised mine to 1333MHz aswell, what's your voltage for the FSB? 1.4V or you kept it at 1.2V?

On your P5B-Deluxe, you won't see 1333 but you'll see 334, like this:




BTW, with water, you can easily do a 350fsb easy, heck, even 375fsb would be better. Right now I'm at 350fsb.

TO answer your question.

Listen. If you're the least bit concerned. Just ask yourself.

CAn this system do everything I want it to do? (AND LIKE HELL that CAn!)

If you can play all the games ect you want to.
Then the only reason to OC then... would be for hobby, you know.

SO - think about it.

(me personally - I'd rape a chip's potential although it were operating at 10GHZ ) - but thats just because I'm somewhat additcted.

My OCes were all due to a NEED though.

With the BIOS I have currently, I can do that with the stock voltage. I have not tried anything higher than that. I've gone up to 400fsb which is a 3.60ghz but for Vc I use a 1.55v or 1.60? can't remember, but that's because the P5B-Dlx has a Vdroop which runs in the CPU and RAM, for RAM at anything above 2.25v.

I'm also on a 4:5 ratio which brings the RAM to 835mhz with a 2.10v. And timings at 4-4-3-5 (4-25-10-10-10-10-10).
