Which route to go?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to reach my max stable OC on my E2160. I have 3GHz 9x333 with stock cooling Orthos ran for 7 Hours and was stable. RAM at 4-4-4-12 833MHz. With a lot of tweaking i'm at 3.2GHz 8x400 Orthos is at 1Hour now and so far no errors(fingers crossed) but I had to up the voltage to 1.425, FSB to +.2 RAM timings at 5-5-5-18, my temps are ~5ºC higher both idle and load with a max temp of 74ºC. I would love to keep 3.2 with 1:1 RAM but would the performance be better factoring in looser timings. Or should I just stick with stock voltage and tight timings since I can confirm it's stable. Thanks much.

Intel based chipsets are less dependent on memory timings as are AMD chipsets for the simple fact the memory controller is not located on the die itself, but rather the motherboard.

It stick with the higher clock and the looser timings. Max load of 74C as only confirmed by Orthos?

I'm not sure what you mean by confirmed by Orthos. I've been running Orthos for 1hour while watching CoreTemp and Everest logs which show just about the same temp and highest i've seen is 74C right now it's at 66C with Orthos still testing.
