Help with first time OC (q9450) - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Do I need to be by the computer when prime95 is doing its job or can I just leave it on for the night?
also, does it tell you if you had errors after the test or during the test?

Raised voltage to 1.212V and had 6 hours of prime95 and 2 hours OCCT with no errors. Could it be considered stable?

hmm, just an outsiders view, but are those temps a little high for that kinda voltage or is it me? you can try a reseat but im not sure if that will help ur temps (should they even need to be lowered).
how much thermal paste did you use?
