How long until I can consider my overclock as stable?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got 1 bluescreen yesterday so decided to run prime95. It wouldn't run for more than a few seconds with out and error so I made some changes in bios.

My overclock details before the changes:
Unlinked
FSB CPU: 1333
FSB MEM: 800

Vcore Voltage: 1.12V
Other voltages on auto

Memory timing settings all on auto

Now check the attachment(s) for overclock settings to what I changed them to. Prime95 ran for an hour and 17 mins until it got it's 1st error. Doe's this mean my system isn't stable?

This overclock process is interesting. A few days idea I had no idea what I was doing but now I have a decent understand of how it works.

Help is appreciated. I'm not sure whether to up the VCore volatage? or change the mem timings, but to what? If I up my Vcore volatage then my temp will rise won't it? I am currently running at around 43 to 46 on temp.

Help is appreciated. I want to make this pc as stable as possible because as soon as this overclock is finished then I'm back to work with my music. I have so many projects to remix, mix down.. Haven't done anything in days. I do notice the difference in my pc speed though.

Again thanks in advance for the help I get.

You're actually undervolting that CPU, I'm not surprised you aren't stable.

Try 1.35v on the CPU

Stock cpu fan and overclocking dont mix well...

otherwise, as already posted you need more voltage...


best suggestion for you would be to grab a good cpu HSF (tuniq/true/zalman) and shoot for1600 FSB, multiplier at 8, mem linked/synced 1:1 ratio

that would put you at cpu-3.2 mem 800, with a good divider for performance of cpu-mem

but without aftermarket cpu cooling, 3.0 will be about your limit

£20 to £30 max I'll spend on one tomorrow. Just have to figure out which 1 to get.
