What changed?

Ghz with a little more volts and memory speed a little lower cause of divider. Idle Temp = 30C still.

Well i never had much time today to try and prime 4.3ghz so i just tried for 4.2ghz about an hour ago as 4.3ghz yesterday crashed in 20min so it needs more tweaking in Bios and i never had time to do so today.

I will be happy to have 4.2-4.3ghz stable 24/7 use, now on the internet many ppl show 4.5-4.8ghz, but those are just for Super Pi benchies and none have primed much over 3 hours.

Basically if anyone is hoping to get 4.5-4.8ghz stable 24/7 on air or even water cooling then i must state that it is a HIGH hope, but not impossible for some chips to do so.

The VID on this one is 1.25 which is very common and it is a good/decent one.

So far so good in orthos prime, i will shut her down and try for a long prime tomorrow: My memory is running at 1008mhz for now and that is just over rated speed.

Lets see some Linpack runs with temperature monitoring.

09-05-2008, 11:55 AM
The one thing about linpack i dislike is the temps it can make CPU's reach and that using it for long periods of time like 1-2 weeks of stressing a CPU and componets can cause degradation and damage. Therefore many ppl have concluded that linpack is a good test program, but can be a very damaging one as well.

Many ppl now refuse to run it cause of damage it has caused on Overclocked PC's.

I have decided not to run it anymore due to many ppl having damaged their equipment when running it extensively over a period of days and days.

It also is a pretty conflicting program in which 1.96v on my memory was OK for it, but not ok for Orthos Priming as it would fail within 15mins of priming at 1.96v.

So like the majority of the overclocking community i have decided not to run it anymore due to its conflicting errors and componet damaging that can and has occured to many ppl.

It has caused degradation in many cpu's cause of the power that is needed to be used to run OC and run it too or in some cases less power needed supposily in certain componets and then the damage occurs later on.

I won't risk my componets anymore with linpack as it was really designed for stability at STOCK speeds for servers and general PC's. The consensus is that many whom have primed at least 12 hrs usually pass linpack 5-10 loops (3-6 times) just like i did with my Q6600 at 3.6ghz.

My guess would be if i ran linpack the temps would reach 75C-78C at the temps i see now at 4.2ghz.

Right now this minute i am running Orthos and it has been over 4 hours so far at 4.2ghz.

Well after a long prime i decided to stop it as this is good enough for stability for 24/7. Also in picture is the IDLE right after shutting down Orthos. Also the Minimum temp in Realtemp is not right i accidently closed it and opened it during testing as the minimum should be 30C as that is the IDLE temp.

hummm ... how low can you underclock it ? .... hummmmmm

nice speed ... zoom zoom ...

09-06-2008, 01:22 AM
Well i could hit 4.0ghz around 1.15-1.18 volts .. stock volts is 1.25.

I not worried about underclocking as i want overclocking and thats what me got.. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

how long in total did you Prime.

Look at the post #669824 ... which is 3 posts above yours.

I personally think if it can run 24 it is ready for being stable. but it's just me24 woulda been a good number to shoot for IMO

Never had any issues ever doing prime stable for 12hrs so 16hrs is very good, many ppl only do 8 hours and have been running months on end while others are having issues at only doing 8 hrs prime.

12 hours minimm is always been my target, so 16 hrs is very very good and more stable then i usually run for any my past OC's.

This is no doubt stable for Daily usage 24/7 and Folding all day long and gaming. My Q6600 i only primed it for 10hrs and never had any issues folding all day long too or daily usage and gaming.

But yeah some ppl like to see that 24hrs, but hardly anyone ever runs it to the 24hr prime mark, maybe a slight few out of 50,000 ppl and i ain't joking... /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

95% only do from 8hrs to 12hrs.

those other threads you have made with your build, have you seen anyone with 5GHZ?,,,,just curious, what is the highest you've seen on those other boards.
I was just thinking with such an OC you have that 16 wouldn't be enuff.as long as it works for you thats all that matters, but answer back on my ? Thx

I have only seen 4.450ghz stable for 11 hours Prime on the other forums i travel too.

95% of what i see is what you call Bench Marking Ghz for programs like Super PI and 3dmarks which is anywhere (average) from 4.5-5.0ghz is what i have come across. The highest i have seen is 6.2-6.7ghz and thats Extreme Volts of around 1.6v or more.

But for actually long prime stable is mine and that 4.450 ghz is all i have seen.

Like i posted in this already ...

"Basically if anyone is hoping to get 4.5-4.8ghz stable 24/7 on air or even water cooling then i must state that it is a HIGH hope, but not impossible for some chips to do so."

Voltage will be the issue and a killer one at that if going over 1.40v MAX and many will state that 1.36V is the MAX you should go. Where others of course will state 1.45v Ghz, so basically the average Volts needed for 4.4-4.5ghz is around 1.40v which is what many state the MAX or MAX to use.

Temps at 1.40v full load would be around 65-70% which you want to try and stay under 60c for 24/7 usage (expecially if folding), so is it possible to do a 16 hours prime at 4.4-4.5ghz Sure it can be done, but Temps will be the issue and at what volts does Chip from Chip you will have to do, to achieve that.

Sure i can do 4.5ghz-4.8ghz and do Super PI tests too like many others, but on average no one is Priming That ghz and if they do .. they only do so for like 3 hours ... not a long prime of 16 hours. Thats why i like 12hrs minimum of prime stable to know that it will be stable 24/7 usually as like i stated i have never had any issues of any PAST OC's doing at least 12hrs of Prime.

16hrs of prime on My OC is (well more) then good enough and more then the average person would do.
