What do you think of my overclock? / Am I stable?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
First of all I want to say thank you to mymlan for giving me a great deal of help along the way. And secondly, it's a great site you guys have here, really helpful and professional.

I have passed 20 passes of LinX (never bothered to go any higher) and 28.27 hours of Prime 95 blend!

When originally testing the overclock I had now (before I had enough voltages) I would pass prime 95 small fft's for atleast 2 hours but would only get a few minutes into blend before I blue screened. So this is why I believe blend to be the best indicator for me.

What do you guys think? And incase im using too much voltage than I need now, instead of playing around and lowering voltage can I just increase my bclk to take advantage of any extra there might be? And if so how many more MHz do you guys think I can get from this voltage?

I don't think you should let your i7 temps go above 70c.

Running prime95 for 24 hr is the standard test.
So I say would say that you are stable but your temps are too high.

Since you are on air, I think you may want to lower your voltage.

When doing normal gaming my cpu doesn't go past 68C and my arctic silver 5 hasn't cured yet so my temps should drop in a week or so.

Those are realllllly high temps, especially for the amount of voltage. It's great that it's stable, but you may want to consider a new cooling solution. In the meantime you could focus on your RAM. I really wouldn't feel comfortable with temps going over 80°C, even on LinX. Such a powerful rig deserves a powerful HSF!

If any of those tests fail, then you're not stable. You can't just ignore one of the tests and say "Oh, I passed the other one, so the one that causes blue screens doesn't matter."

im at 4.0 with 1.31v that voltage is too high which is why your temp is high.

simular spec. try a 4.0Ghz (200 x 20) 1.3v and push up till stable

But do you have a C0 i7 920? I think I just have a really crappy C0 chip.
