Since I have a Pentium D with HT (955 EE) does that mean I need to run 4 instances of Prime instead of 2?

No you do not need to run four copies of Prime95, however I would recommend actually disabling HT Technology when you do this test on your CPU.

Running two versions of Prime doesn't max out my CPU or my CPU temps. I ended up running other things to max out the CPU and up the heat. Shouldn't the CPU be maxxed out in order to validate? I manually set the affinity of each copy of Prime to a different CPU to see if that helped but it didn't.

I ended up running 4 copies and that did the trick, each to a different CPU (HT Enabled). Just to be clear, none of the CPU's were maxed out as shown on task manager's performance monitor, when running two copies. They were closer to 60% or so. Right now I'm just getting ready for overclock on water and am sitting at 3.733Ghz.

Correct, on a system that uses both a dual core architecture and has HyperThreading implemented and enabled using two copies of a stress program will not cause 100% load on a computer system in most cases, unless the application supports SMP/multithreading. Four copies must be executed and running or else HT must be disabled

^^^^ Thanks for the feedback. My results were posted in the other thread and hope it's enough to qualify for the validated overclockers list.

I've overclocked my pentium d 840 to 3.92 ghz stable, but I'm running it at 3.5 ghz daily. Windows doesn't like anything above 3.92 ghz... because it's evil. I think it might be a heat problem though. I'm using a p5nd2 sli, and it gets to a toasty 65 celsius maxed out at 3.92 ghz. Its vcore voltage is currently set to "auto". I'm pretty sure that manually setting it would lower my temps, but I'm tired and I'm about to go to sleep. It's the voltage that heats it, not exactly the frequency, right? Also, I just applied the as5 the day before overclocking to insanity. On the website, it said that in a period of 200 hours, it should gain maximum effect and cool the cpu another 2-5 degrees celsius. I reaplied the as5 thinking it was too thick(it's my first time aplying it and overclocking). That lowered the temps enough to keep my comp at 3.5 ghz at reasonable temps (haven't seen anything above 62c, and it takes 10 minutes to get that hot). I could probably clock it up to 3.6 without any heat gain, and I'll try that tomarrow.

Hello, I am completely new to the overclocking world....I have always been the type to leave well enough alone. If there is anyone that can help me with the basics of overclocking CPUS and Video cards, I would greatly appreciate it. wolvman05@adelphia.net
