OC vs Stock, same results?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
i usually run smp at
3.05ghz 1.3v, memory 1:1 @ddr2-866 4-4-4-12 2.25v
i just got bored last night and removed everything from my case and decided to see if stock cooler does any good, so i left OC and loaded into the bios and waited at the hardware config. i sat there and watched the temp slowly go from 48c to 53c, at that point i stocked the cpu.
1.83ghz 1.125v, memory 1:1 ddr2-533 3-3-3-10 2.0v

did the difference in memory timing make the difference? btw the work unit was a 2604, i completed 1% every 16mins give or take a second. same on both speeds


whats wrong here?

Benchmark it thats the only true way to get a comparison

Folding is not an accurate way of seeing how fast your processor is. I have a friends laptop that is a dedicated 24/7 folding machine and i check on it every once in a while and on some parts of a WU I get 30 seconds per frame, and on others around 90 seconds per frame (this is on the graphical client). So as you can see some parts of the WU take more time to fold therefore you don't know if you getting a long part or short part when testing this. Also I don't know much about benchmarking programs, but there is a forum section towards the bottom with downloads to a few.

i wasnt benching it, i was saying shouldnt it be faster OCed?
post #6 of 14
Yeah...while I didn't say you were benching it, you are trying to compare it with your OC'ed speed. About it going faster OC'ed, it probably does, you just hit a part of the work unit that takes a shorter amount of time to complete, so it seems like it was going fast, when in reality, your OC'ed speed would've done it much faster.

Do a Benchmark before and after overclocking, use 3DMark06.

This is most likely a result of your system being limited by L2. Certain SMP WUs (most notably 2608s) are extremely dependent on L2 cache size, and thost WUs do not get along with Allendales very well. In that case, clock speed doesn't matter all that much since it's not the limiting factor. Most WUs, however, are sensitive to clock speed, and most of the time a faster system will chew through WUs more quickly.

Unfortunately, other benchmarks do not capture the complexities of the wide range of WUs and their particular requirements.
