Well here are some results after running Dual Prime95. What do guys think?

This is under full Load




This after finishing Dual Prime95




I'm thinking it's ok since I wont be running the cores under constant 100% load.

Wow, I was going to help you out but I see you are doing fine on your own. Just don't loose those settings now or you may found it difficult to get them back (that happened to me, I took me five mins to get 3.55ghz on the first day, but after I lost that setting due to unplugging power it took me several hours to get it back)

Also you should test TAT 100% work load/thermal load, by pressing star under the temps, if the temps get close to 85c you need to back down, even 80c would be dangerous. 70c is high but acceptable. You need to wait a min ofr the temps to get to their highest.

Personally, If I where running past 60c under a normal full load (gaming, or the sorts. Which I have yet to see my temperatures go as high as prime95) I would find better cooling or back down the speeds. Whats that CPU rated for the IHS around 60-61c right? Those temps are way past that.

But this is one of those subjects where everyone has their own opinion of how hot a cpu can go. Do some research and decide for yourself.
Tho I plan on keeping my E6400 for a long time and not having it burn out. Unless there is a slim chance quad cores become really cheap, and there are actually games that take advantage of it. Until then, I'm keeping my cpu around 55c or lower.

Well after further testing, I was able to lower my temps a bit by lowering the voltage. Now I'm running at 3.6GHz 1.42v. Dual Prime Stable.




Is 3.6GHz fine for everyday use?

Are you nuts? Is 3.6 fine for everyday use?
I hope you where gloating and that wasn't a real question

lol. Well this is my first time ever overclocking. So I was actually being serious. I hope so.

Ooohhh ok. I miss understood the context of the question. Yes that is a good overclock for that cpu. Not to many people get it higher. And those that due usually use water or phage change.

I thought you meant is that cpu at the speed going to be good for running programs. In that case, hellll yes. There isn't much of anything that is faster right now.

lol. Thank you very much. How else would I be able to take this overclock further? I was thinking something on the memory side.

It was just a hunch on my behalf. I was having some instability issues and raising the Core didn't help, FSB was allready at 1.5, so I tried the SPP. Bumping it from 1.5 to 1.55 solved the issue. Doing this will most likely NOT reduce your voltage needs on the CPU.

You are cutting it close, but I would run with it. Just pay attention for the first couple of days. Watch for anything "funny", glitches, and of course errors/reboots.

Most users (in my opinion) are a little TOO worried about their temps with overclocking. Yeah you have to watch them, but one should expect them to run HOT with a 50% overclock. Keep below 70C and it really shouldn't be an issue.

Most REAL WORLD studies show that pushing the RAM with Core 2s has a negligiable effect and trying for tight timings has almost NO effect at all.

Personally I would just set up my RAM to run at default speeds and not mess with it. Its not worth the time/effort.

However, IF you HAVE to do this for bragging/learning experiance I'm sure there are others on the board here who can help you out. Just don't be angry when all that work gets you 101FPS instead of 100.

Hey Oner, great job on getting those speeds!!

This is my first time as well overclocking, and i have similar build like yours but haven't gotten that far.

here's what i've gotten and need to know what more can i do, still confused about ram to fsb ratio. Is a 3:4 ratio good?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Well from what I see you have your memory overclocked. But really, I don't know much. I'm in your shoes.Your vcore looks a bit high on cpuz. What are your load temps? You also might want to install and run dual Prime95 and run it overnight to make sure you have a stable overclock. You can also use othos. I think you should still be able to push it more. Just watch your temps.
