Help with stress testing.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right now, my pc is on its stock settings. Yesterday i bumped the cpu up to 2.59 ghz and watched my idle tempreature go up slightly. When i tested it with stress prime 2004, the tempreature jumped to about 68 degrees. I was running 4 instances of the program. At this point (68 degrees) i decided to stop the tests. Was i running too many instances of the program? Or is the stock cpu fan a bag of **** (lol)? I was thinking about getting a better system like a thermaltake V1 with some ceramic paste. Any thoughts on the stock problem, considering i was just using it to learn how to O.C.?

Well, For Thermal Paste i Highly Recomend Shin Etsu and Atric Silver 5, and yes the Stock Fan is Crap i would Try A Tuniq or A Zalman fan.
