My new Rig is sporting this processor and I love it. What programs are you using to overclock. Would nTune be good enough?

Bought this processor a week ago and am really happy with it, running stable at 3210Mhz with standard cooling - haven't manually adjusted core voltage just used nTune - easy! 36'C idle, 46'C under load - seems stable played crysis for hours the other night no probs.

Welcome to the club Vathe and BadNFunkedUP!

I wouldn't recommend using nTune for overclocking. It tends to be less stable and often causes more problems than it is worth. I highly recommend BIOS overclocking. It may force you to learn along the way, but it will be well worth it. In the end, you will probably end up with a more stable, higher overclock. For stability testing, most people recommend using orthos small ftt test for at least an hour (some say up to 8 hours to be rock solid). Just make sure your loads stay below mid 50's C.

Of course if you have questions, just ask

Yes I found that nTune was causing my CPU usages to be 100% just playing CS:S (stock setting would only use between 50%-60%)

yeah try not to use ntune infact i would remove it all togeather lol just having it on my pc with out oc'ing gave my system erros and its happend to more than 4 ppl i know just a tip

if u want to monter ur gpu temps (only thing usefull on ntune ) i would recomend RivaTuner u can overclock ur gfx card with that to but becarefull on what u change because u can do some damage with it if u dont know what ur doing

also to (WBas) found my psu wasnt stable at all i watched rivia tuner & speed fan when running orthos and my 550w is struggling that much the fan speeds drop randomly to nothing,and the ambiant temp drops to nothing randomly then spike up when i stop orthos and psu starts making weird noises so im back at stock settings 700w on the way with a new mb get back to ya when its maxed out oc'ed

Yeah, like I said... nTune=bad. Learn to OC using your BIOS. It's well worth it.

Heh... well good luck man. A good PSU is important. Most people don't realize that there is more to a PSU than just watts. Higher watts isn't always good, but the quality of watts is important. I tend to look at brand names and reviews for selecting PSU's. It is pretty rare to have a system that actually uses that many watts, but if the PSU is of low quality, it will have problems even at low voltages.
