a noob question..

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
please do tell me... its really bugging my head as long as my voltage is 1.360
and raised my 3.2 ghz to 3.7 ghz is ok already running it for 2 days atleast 15 hours per day or more does it effect the lifespan of my CPU and other parts???
i add up a bit bus speed 200 to 220 and multiplier from 16 to 17 so it went 3.7 im just curious or afraid that my whole parts of my PC will be damaged..

any pros please answer me >.< !confused.gif

here is the CPU-Z and core temp of my pc.....

Max 24/7 voltage would be 1.55 about. I run at 1.488 for 4 ghz and I plan on doing this for the lifespan of the comp.

your fine. as long as you are running stable and your temps stay below 70.

try running prime95. let it run for a couple hours and if there is an error, you don't have a completely stable overclock.

best thing to do is test. then test. then test some more... your goal is to try to get it as fast as it can be, on the lowest voltage it runs stable.

more voltage=more heat

That voltage is very low, if stable great.

IMO it isnt stable til its done 12hrs+ prime95 blends.

good luck with the OC!

First I drop the HT and cpu Multi as well as raise he mem divisor. then I take my bus as high as I can. Then I try the HT for as high as I can, then the mem. That way I know how high each of the different things can go and try to work out a way to get everything going as fast as possible.

And yes your cpu calculations are correct. IDK about the mem as mine works differently.
I found this in an old thread. you can find it here: Multiplier vs Bus Speed
