Default Re: Out of the Dark Ages

That was easy Got love Win7. I was able to boot into my previous installation, update to the new drivers and be good to go. This is really great, I was expecting at least two days of work getting a fresh install of Win7 up to speed.

On to the OCing

Default Re: Out of the Dark Ages

I've been playing around with this system for a few days now and it seems the stable point for this CPU is 4.2ghz 1.32v ....not stellar(compared to what some of you are getting) but it is damn fast. My load temps are in the low-mid 50's C. My temps are good but I've read going much over 1.3v with these CPUs doesn't gain much.....I've tried bumping to 4.4ghz w/ 1.35v but the system goes into a reboot loop at the post screen until it auto resets.
Any ideas or is there something I'm missing...? thx
