Have to wait til next week til i get paid to get a new cooler and get rising to the top. Using the software that came with my motherboard, it says im only drawing 80 watts on LOAD which to me is insane.
I think we have the same mobo and cpu and I'm new to overclocking. So, I was wondering if you could tell me what your MIT settings are in your BIOS. I'd also like to know what your FSB/DRAM is too.
At the moment my system seems stable but, I'm not sure if I have the memory and multipliers set to get optimum performance out of my system. 3.25Ghz is about as high as I want to go right now. Under load at this setting my processor heats up to about 57C max on stock cooling when running multiple Orthos programs. (I actually got it to hit 59C on all cores but, that is still well under the kill range for this chip)
I don't want to push my memory too high either, I'd like to keep the frequency around 400mhz like I have it now but, should I be worried about the FSB/DRAM at 3:5.
