My first OC, yay!
#1
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1565372

Right now I'm idling at low 40's and maxing at high 60's on air, totally stable... I want to push it to 4ghz, do I need to mess with anything other than bclk? Also I'm wondering if decreasing vcore will lower temps much. To be honest I went straight to 1.30 to avoid stability probs, but I heard 1.25 is doable (seems negligible to me but I'm a noob)

EDIT: Nevermind that! I went for 4ghz and even decreased the vcore... Here are the new results: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1565439 It passed Linpack and the temps are the same as 3.6 Laugh

EDIT 2: Actually it looks like the temps are even better now, by around 4C, and this is with all fans set to lowest speed. I can't believe I've had this puppy at stock speeds for over a year now

Thanks for the comments! I was seriously considering going beyond 4.0, like some kind of OC bug bit me... I'll leave it alone for now though, it's already a whole new beast Tongue

Core i's are definitely good to new overclockers. Smile

Good work!

too bad I cant afford to get a coreI PC right now prices are too darn high Mobo itself costs 6000up[pesos] its double the price of of my ASUS p45q which I bought last year and the procs are ranging from 8000 to 17000 its way too much right now for a commoner like me still congrats on youre OC still remember that Procs has a lot of factors in OC'ing and just becuz other Poeple managed to get to a certain GHZ with his settings does not mean you could achieve the same by copying his settings [but its good to do research first before trying anything unless you want your PC going up in smoke] due to a lot of factors like MOBO brand Memory brand PROC batch date ETC. so in the end its all just trial and error

PS.
dont trust in linpacks for a stability test Prime95 is the one you should use for proper stability test google it
