So, I increased the multiplier to 18 and got 3.6ghz, so far its at 55.5 running prime 95 for a few hours. Im getting AM cooler tommorow to further OC.
I am a newbie to OC so please help me. My understanding is that you first increase the multiplier then increase the voltage until prime 95 doesn't fail?
What should the max voltage I should go for? 1.5v?
Am I going to reduce the lifespan of my processor if I OC or is it perfectly okay if the temperature is low enough and the processor is stable with prime 95?
