Default New system is breathing



This was the easiest OC I have ever done. I had to up the voltage in the bios by 50mV (1.35V) to get Prime95 stable.

Nice!

I wish mine would like 3.2 stable so I could run 400x8 and ditch the RAM divider.
I guess a 1.2ghz OC isn't bad though.

The above is after 3.5 hours of running Prime95 stress test, small FFT.

Is it normal to have the cores 8C appart? That seems a little strange to me. Maybe my heatsink is leaning or something?

I should say not. You got a 66% increase while mine is only at a 33%.

But thanks I'm excited to get all the software installed and start using it, right now it's still not hooked up to the internet and basically just has XP installed with MB and graphics drivers.
