Any consensues on how long one should let the system run stock before getting into the clock settings???

I have the system all set up ( except crappy ram right now ), and am itching to start fudging in the BIOS.

1 day? 2 days? 1 week? ( all these times are with 24 hrs of folding

No one has been able to prove that a "burn-in" is beneficial. IMO, I would run it for about 2-3 days at 100% cpu usage, just to make sure it's stable, then start cranking the fsb up, in slow increments.

Some of the big overclockers leave memory in folding machines for months before steadily raising the clocks. I myself go for it straight away, always checking temps of course. But they do get higher O/C than myself so who knows?

I can get 4384Mhz @ 1:1. Dont think my memory can go any higher and I'm not using a divider. Unfortunately the amount of juice I have to put through at that level (1.85v Cpu, stock 1.55v) makes me nervous even though my temps are still sub zero.

To be honest when you have a machine with a Raptor raid array thats over 3.4Ghz nothing slows them down anyway. I run @ 4.2 but it wouldn't matter if I was a bit less.

To XMS... Keep it coming boy ha ha
