Is it just me or is it the farther I push my CPU past the stock voltage, the slower my PC seems to be? I know the benchmarks don't lie, but when I'm on higher clocks, the desktop seems to load slower and the welcome screen seems to stick around for just a little bit longer. Am I paranoid? Thoughts please.

It's just you, ever see something go by fast, so you rewind it and it ends up bring super slow? i get that alot.

it could be that your cpu is overheating.. what are your temps?

the more cpu speed i give mine the faster it loads,but i can't get it stable.so i backed it back to 2.80 & it seems like its loading slow,but in fact its running great,so don't let it fool you,just keep messing around with those memory clock speeds & u will get to that sweet spot.

I think this is a think with memory timing. I guess what I'm trying to say is that my RAM is currently at a 1:1 ratio w/ my FSB (250:250), so when you raise your FSB (or w/e intel calls it) it will cause your CPU to be running faster than the RAM. Especially when you have to lower the divider on the RAM.

Thats one good way too find a real world improvement.

Also insatbility will slow down a computer.

Check your ram and cpu for stability with any multitude of benches and stress testing. I usually try memtest then orthos, and intel burn test.

I've never played around with the memory timings. My timing right now is still stock, 5-5-5-15. My RAM is at 945 MHz.

Also, CPU idles at 50 degrees.

That's a really high idle temp. What are the temps under full load? (prime95/orthos small FFTs tests)

Two instances of Orthos on Small FFT's is 58 on Core 0.
