i think i overclocked my cpu but im unsure if its safe.
in the bios i selected unlinked and set the cpu fsb 1750 and voltage 1.36 here is a ss can someone say if its safe to leave it like this or have i got a miss match? its the best i could do and keep the pc stable. i left the ram settings at 1333Mhz and only played with cpu
Mobo: Striker II Extreme /NSE 790i
RAM: DDR3 1333Mhz
Big water 760i cpu cooler
I set the cpu volts to 1.15625 and pc would not boot so i tried 1.18125 and pc booted but bsod so i tried 1.22500 and 1.26250 and pc was ok but after running prime95 1 core stopped working after a 4min run so i set the volts to 1.28125 and ran prime95 and this was the result:
Would you say this was ok for me to run this pc everyday and play games on, im a heavy pc user so i will work it hard.
I was using prime 95 until I came across Intel Burn Test which is an interface made to simplify usage of Intel's linpack, the latter is said to be used by intel itself to stress-test the chips after production..IBT raised the temps more than P95 and showed my OCed CPU is unstable (I got BSOD within few minutes) inspite of running P95 for an hour without a problem..The short version: It stresses the whole system much more and shows errors much earlier..
