touching 63c occasionally should not be a problem
Hmm that's odd. I stressed it again the same way and this time it got to a max of 54C. Nothing higher....
54C under MAXIMUM load at 2729MHz @1.475V. How's that?
I'm going to overclock some more, see how stuff goes.
Yea, I figured out only closing certain svchosts gives you that super error
EDIT: I happen to remember that exact number... 2729 because thats how many MHz I got out of my old P4 Northwood 2.26 GHz... Although I'm sure a dual core athlon 64 running at 2729MHz is a LOT faster than a P4 running at 2729MHz.
You mean at 2804MHz . Still running dual prime95 to make sure it's stable. MAX load for this (dual prime95) is 63... Idle is 37C. Chipset is 49C. Interesting, chipset required a 0.025V increase to let my system be recognized as an NF590 SLI. Otherwise it was "unknown". Ofcourse, all this when I upped the CPU, otherwise it's normal.
Now I feel really jealous lol. Hopefully soon-ish I will get a Dual Core (although I'm limited at FX60 for the fastest possible because I was an ***** and got Socket 939 instead of AM2...) But then, I still wanna see your 3dMark scores if you have em for 3dmark2001, 3dmark03, or 3dmark05, PM me with em plz
Meh, dropped it down to 2750MHz. It wanted 1.55V in the end to be stable at the above clocks, and went to 65C, so I dropped it. Chipset volts went back to normal, this baby went back to 1.475, and temps went back to ~54.
I logged the temperatures when running 3DMark 2001se and 3DMark 2005.
Max on 2001se was: 47C
Max on 2005 was: 49C
Not bad for a 750MHz overclock.
