~Started to OC!~

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
ok guys, I know this isnt a new thread. And that there is plenty of others sharing their OC's....well I got my RAM back from Corsair and decided it was time to OC my rig!

So far I have only overclocked the CPU. Tomorrow, after work, I will be working on the NB frequency.

Here are my CPU Results!

CPU Clock: 3.810Ghz(ref clock 254*15)
VCORE: 1.31250v in BIOS with CPU LLC Enabled.....This means total vCORE under 100% load was 1.344v constant!
Idle Temp: 27-30C depending on how long PC was on.
100% load temp: hovered between 51-53C but maxed out at 55C once.
Ambient during testing was about 26-27C

NB, HT were both at 2032(as close to stock as possible) and the RAM is stock right now as well.

Here are some shots:







Stability tested with Prim95 for 6 hours( I turned it off myself after 6 hours) and all temps/screen shots were taken at the end of the 6 hours test.

How are my temps?
Do you think it is good/ok to run this 24/7? without really hurting the life expectancy of the cpu?
Was 6 hour of prime 95 long enough to test the OC?

I also had a question in regards to the NB and HT freq. OC.....I know for NB the higher the better and that for HT as close to 2000mhz is the best performance wise. But for the HT will going 2032 instead of 2000 be any difference? Is it better to stay slightly below 2000 instead of being a hair over?

need to run prime at least 12 hours. ive crashed 6hrs 45minutes into prime before. looks good though.
if you can handle the wait, run prime for 24 hrs

*edit* id raise the nb before i overclocked the cpu though. it makes 1 helluva difference.2600- 2800 would be really good and quite possible on stock volts.

I'm a lazy overclocking, I don't run prime for more than 40mins most of the time, heck an hour is all I usually run it for_ If its stable for an hour I figure it's stable enough for me.

I've done a lot of my overclocking this way, give me no troubles, no crashes and I've used the computer for as long as I can remember with no troubles.

Stressing for 6+ Hours is foolish(IMO) why? Because due to the fact that you will probably never stress your computer for 6hours on end on normal use and Prime95 is an extremely stressful program(its takes your CPU to stress levels that you will probably never EVER take it under normal use, playing a game, encoding, ect.)

For me, if it passes 40-1hr of prime95 it passed in my books.

But for the HT will going 2032 instead of 2000 be any difference? Is it better to stay slightly below 2000 instead of being a hair over?


LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ALL THINK!
To answer your questions: Your temps are great, I don't see a problem with them and in fact probably during normal usage, you probably won't ever see past 44-50C since Prime95 really puts a lot of stress on the CPU so only under Prime will you probably ever see it at 55C

6hours for Prime testing(Personally I think that will do)

As your HT frequency, a hair over 2000 won't harm your performance in any way or will it hinder it, at 2032mhz that is barely gonna do any harm.

Running it at such low voltages as you have it and at 3.8ghz, you probably will not even lower the lifespan of that CPU and even if you did, probably 5-10years from now you'll replace it already with something new. Take for example, I have an old AMD 939 Athlon 64 3400+ Processor that is 2.2ghz stock in which I was able to achieve 2.6ghz on it that has been running like so for aprox. 5 years now and yet it still won't die on me.

awesome, thanks for the replies so far. I have noticed how ever that now it takes longer for my internet to work... could this be related to the OC?

Also, when overclocking my NB. which voltage do I adjust? the NB voltage? or the NB/CPU voltage? and do I still adjust it in the same increments I did for the cpu?

NB Freq - adjust voltage with CPU/NB Voltage, depending on the Freq, start with 1.25v (common 2600-2800MHz usually 1.3-1.35) and safe max of 1.4-1.45v. Yes just like cpu, start low and make small increases with testing in between till stabilized.

NB voltage is for the chipset, you generally wouldn't need to increase this till the Ref Clock is above 275MHz or higher. "Auto" will usually handle things nicely.

alright, well I have my ref clock at 254 right now. Also, when testing with prime I test the same exact way I did with the cpu correct? And if it is unstable will prim95 just either not run or shut off like it did with the cpu too?

I know these are noob questions :-D

and lastly, is there a program that will tell me my NB temp?

and one more thing, when I have HWmonitor open. which voltage is the nb/cpu voltage? So I know what the ACTUAL voltage under load is.
