I'm thinking that those chips will do 3.3ghz @ 1.42 or lower, maybe 3.6ghz at 1.5v and over.

Tnx for the reply guys

I have the 635 on 3,4 GHz @1,39 volt ,multiplier on 240x and using core damage more then one hour without any error.
When i go over the 3,4 GHz ,the multiplier on 245x and rising the volt to 1.4v i got a black screen afther 5 minutes.

What need i to do for a stable overclock?

First of all, a one hour stress test does not mean its stable. Usually OC crashes within the first 5 minutes, after the 1:30 mark, or after 4 hours.

I test stability this way:

6-8 hours of OCCT.
And then 4-8 hours of Prime95

Then I deem it stable.

Rising your northbridge volts an increment can help too. Just keep an eye on your temps.

When i install this program i get a few errors like, directx 9 issnt updated and something like u need a better vcard like nvidea or better.

I use windows 7 DirectX 11 and a hd 6870 vcard.

Can u explane this ?

Yeah thats just if you use it to stress the GPU.

None of that is needed for CPU testing.
