My first OC, this forum was priceless in the information it has.

Thanks to all

I guess RAM is next.

Looking good your voltage and everything is good... im at 4.2 put it to 1.4 havent lowered it but havent had any problems lol... I did try 4.2 at 1.35vcore that didnt go to well LOL!!! I got G flops of like 38 and 39 apposed to my 60 and 61.. But your mulitplier being at 23 is perfect.

Oo man I know what you mean! Your thread helped a lot when I was trying settings, I messed around with some of your settings which helped a lot. I have not really been able to find any other settings the comp likes as much as this. Since I am air cooled I don't wanna go to crazy.

Batch # 3041A657 - can anyone tell me about this batch?

LoL well I just backed down to 4 ghz 175bclock 23 mulitplier and cut my voltage all the way down to 1.28 soo I dont know if its worth going to 1.4 for .2 ghz....? and the heat I dont see the benefit so As of right Now I have backed down to 175x23 (4ghz) but my chip got up to 4.3 at 1.4 but my primarty screen went black.. than everytime i moved my mouse it went black flickerd.. I was guessing it was a lack of voltage/power so i immiedietly restarted and lowered to 4.2 at 1.4... Whats your thoughts guys Should we keep our 4.2 OC? for the .13 difference in voltages.?

Welcome to OC.net. Check out the 950 OC thread, the first page has a list of users, Batch #'s and OC settings... http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ead-first.html

Also go here http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem and fill in your system specs, they will show up in every post like the rest of us. It makes things easier when/if you ask for help

I would lower it, from what I have read lower voltage is key; to not only to low heat but also the life of your machine. At first I was going very adv with my OC by changing any and everything. I had almost no luck with that being able to get it stable, I reset and went with really basic setting, with some ram timing changed and turning off some MB setting. I will keep adding more as I add to my thread just because it is so much to add.

Links that i used


I hope this batch of links can help, they did for me.
