My rig and Overclock, thoughts and criticisms on my overclock please e8400 HD4870

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Heres my overclock setup, machine specs in my sig. Theres a few settings im not to sure about, namely, Load line calibration, CPU and PCI spread Spectrum, CPU and NB clock stew, Cpu margain enhancement, CPU PLL Voltage, FSB Termination Voltage.

I've posted my setting below, please let me know if there are any obvious errors or over-volts. I have been reading about overclocking for about 12 months now, got my PC bout 3 months back and this is what ive come up with for a 24 hour Prime 95 Stable overclock. Any other thoughts or criticisms welcome.

Thanks in advance

that is a nice OC, you don't really need to worry about any of those settings except FSB termination voltage if you have OC'd it.
