Hi Guys,

Sorry for thread mining but in case of any interest...
As I'm finally about to upgrade this system I thought it might be nice to let the 'clarkdale clockers' know how well these things can stand the test of time.

Untouched from the stable o/c reached and posted here in this thread - this g6950 has sat @ 4.62, 1.56v for almost 2.5 years now, running 24/7 save for the odd windows update reboot smile.gif
I've never even so much as cleaned the dust out of it.

In the last month or so, Vdroop from the old superflower 600w PSU (sometimes as low as 11.65v) has started causing the occasional video driver crash at full load, and that's spurred the inclination for a total upgrade - but I'm sure that given another PSU, this box would tick on happily for another 2.5 years. Some would say it should never have lasted this long on a 600!

I hope others had similar results, and sadly wave farewell to the best bang-for-buck chip I think i've ever had!
