General OC and help

How does this look so far? Does anybody see any problems with the current settings?
Seems to be stable on P95 after finally getting the right settings for the RAM. Besides the RAM all of the settings I arrived at by lowering my cpu volts to 1.35 (mobo set it at 1.45 default) and then just putting the multiplier up to a number ran P95 and if it survived like 10-15 I went to the next thing. If it didnt work I just uped the volts a step. Not the best way I know.

here is my system:
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE (stock hsf)
MOBO - MSI 870A-G54
RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600
GPU - XFX HD 5830
Case - HAF 922
HDD - Samsung Spinpoint f3 1TB
Optical - Samsung SH-S223C
PSU - XFX P1-650X-CAG9 650W

OC settings:
Cpu - 3.8 MHz
x19 multiplier
200 fsb
1.37 volts

CPU-NB Freq - 2400 MHz
1.214 volts

HT - 2000 MHz
auto volts

RAM - DDR3 1600
1.536 volts
9-9-9-9-24 2T

SB and NB volts are auto

here is the temps during P95
..................Min Max Average
CPU Core0 40.00 61.50 59.98
CPU Core1 40.00 61.50 59.98
CPU Core2 40.00 61.50 59.98
CPU Core3 40.00 61.50 59.98
TMPIN0 35.00 56.00 54.29
TMPIN1 128.00 128.00 128.00
TMPIN2 28.00 33.00 32.38
TMPIN3 0.00 0.00 0.00

Anything I could do without upping cpu volts any you think?

  1. Run p95 for an hour and if it doesn't crash then it's probablly stable for you...
    Otherwise it looks good...But I would recommend getting an aftermarket cooler...
    don't overclock that high on a stock don't want to exceed 62 C on the cpu or it will die...that's the limit 62 C...55 is pretty nice for load...even 58 would be I really would go and buy an aftermarket cooler if I were you...
  2. Yea I didn't specify but that p95 was from my 1hr run

    and yea definitely getting aftermarket cooler. Just waiting on a good UPS deal so I can buy them at the same time
  3. should be all fine and set once you get the cooler...
