Can someone walk a noob through the overclocking process? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hmm I see... I don't really feel anxious or nervous about any temp, because I just don't know!
So do I just run Orthos for (how long?) and see how high the temperatures are raised on TAT?

And how about voltage?

It worked perfectly fine/normally up to 300, but when I tried 333 it wouldn't even load windows, even when I upped the voltage. Then I tried tuning it back down to 300, and when that wouldn't work I put it back to normal... =/

Try to keep voltage under 1.5, but it's really up to you. Generally the higher the voltage you give it, the faster it will degrade

hmm... ok. What's the stock voltage?

EDIT: BTW when it failed it was only at 1.375...

Try lowering your HT multi to 3x
if that doesnt work try raising your SB voltages
