Cranky 7x multi?, or impossible. - Page 5

Oh yeah, plus I think the 10x multiplier makes my CPU run hotter, like 2-3c which would put my load temps at the hottest point of the day at 55-58c.

Is that oK?

On a random note, I'm ocing my RAM now, how many memtest86's should it pass to consider it stable?
10x multi = hotter...huh? Thats weird..at the same vcore?

Memtest, I loop at least 4-5 times. Some folks are crazy with it, and run test for 12hrs and such...

Ya really. Ive been finding out that a higher multiplier needs more vcore, and runs hotter than lower multiplier with same vcore.

For instance, I just tested 3.0ghz on my 8x mulitplier. Ran stability test for 12+hrs. Without changing anything else, I upped my multiplier to 9x changed FSB accordingly to reach 3.0ghz, and after about 11hrs it crashed. I'm pretty sure on this one...
