I have read the sticky and am still unsure about one thing.
I just upped the FSB to 333 so now I am at 3ghz and I got the RAM at 5 5 5 18 @ 1:1 ratio. Everything else is auto or default. I had Load Line Calibration enabled and passed 30 mins of Large FTT in Prime95. VCore was @ 1.397 at all times in CPUZ. Max temps during the test was 50 50 48 48. Is this ok like this or should I disable Load Line Calibration? Also is it safe to keep the voltages as they are ohn auto?
I would not use auto voltages, had bad experience with those. Just manually put all voltages to lowest/default settings. My Q6600 G0 is stable at 3.2ghz, at below stock voltage. Auto setting will give you more volts than you need, which means more heat
Edit: also, don't mess with load line calibration. 50c is fine, my processor gets to 60c. I consider anything below 70c at full load to be safe enough
I have set all voltages to normal apart from RAM and Vcore which is at 1.331.
Passed 30 mins of Prime95 small tft test so far.
As I only changed the Vcore up a little from 1.325, do I still need to do a 24 hour Prime95 test to see if Im stable?
It passed Prime 95 for 9 hours no errors.
Do I now need to to Memtest86 and if so for how long?
I have not OCed the RAM.
Its running at 800hmz which is stock and the FSB is 333.
So is a memory test a must do or can I say its stable without?
