System is now stable, time to OC!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My sig rig, I bought late last year was plagued by BSODs and after narrowing it down to faulty RAM has not had a crash in over a month. I had planned on OCing a bit since I got a BE CPU, but I haven't OCed since my old Athalonx2.

From what I understand, I can bump up the voltage slightly, about to 1.35v and raise the multiplier and get a decent overclock. I would like to start there and try and go a bit higher if/when I feel a bit more comfortable with my chip. From there I will see if I can hit 4.0 and then work on my RAM.

My temps are pretty respectable I think, about 31 idle and 45 under full load. I have a hyper212+ as my cooler if that makes a difference. So really, and guidance or advice you guys could give me would be great. I'm looking forward to getting some extra performance outta this rig.

Cheers,

-Ed

Are you using stock HSF or after market? Getting an after market will increase your chances to achieve higher clocks. Otherwise maximum temp you should go for for 24/7 usage should be around 55c if I recall it correctly (it can substain more but people tend to say 55c for 24/7)

And yea, you raise the multiplier of your CPU and the Vcore a bit. Then try it out with IBT/Prime95/OCCT/Your Choice ^_^.

Notice: Just because you pass stress test doesnt mean you are stable. I passed 12 hours of Prime95 on blend and got BSoDs in Firefox and some Games. So try your stability out in as many ways as you can!

Yeah I actually just thought of putting that I have a hyper212+, got ninja'd before I could edit it

Alright, bumped the voltage to 1.35, raised to multi to 19 so I am sitting at 3.8 right now. I also found out that my Mobo will set RAM to 1333 on auto. Got my RAM running at 1600 like it should now. Time for some tests.
