Hey guys, I am going to be purchasing a Zalman CNPS10X Performa CPU cooler in the next couple days and am planning to OC my 1075t. I am relatively new and am just now learning about how to overclock AMD cpus with locked multipliers, so far with decent success (@~3.45GHz on stock Heatsink with temps right at 49c). But, I would like to get that higher will maintaining longevity and such. Which brings me to my first question. How much (what GHz range) do you think that I would be able to overclock my CPU without ridiculously high voltages (I don't want to shorten its lifespan if something happens and I cannot upgrade as planned within a year) and without down-clocking the RAM? Secondly, would down-clocking the RAM really hinder its performance that severally or would it not be that noticeable when using apps that hog a lot of RAM? And my last question is, what temps should i try to stay under for both my motherboard and cpu? (full system specs in my sig)
- if you over clock in accordance with the recommended, namely in the form of maximum allowable temperature and overvolt reasonable, it is safe for long-term
- I think 1075 in a state of 3.4 Ghz with a ram which is still stardar also very qualified for a variety of software and do not need to downgrade if the voltage is within reasonable limits.
