I still a bit new to over clocking and I still have the stock HSF so I am some what limited in what I can do but this is what I have so far.
Stepping: 240.02 * 15
Freq: 3600.35 MHz (240.02 * 15)
CPU Volt: 1.312v
NB Freq: 2400MHz
NB Volts: *AUTO*
RAM: 640.1 MHz (3:8) @ 7-7-7-20
MOBO: M4A785TD-V EVO
Cooling: Stock lol
Yeah I know, but read the above threads, I need the screen short, rules are rules.
Ok, I looked at other peoples pictures of the prime95 test I see what you are saying; I hadn't stopped the prime test when I got the screen shot so I didn't have that total time on mine. Wouldn't the thing that says when it started and at what it was currently at be the same as if I stopped it though? Or is it slightly different how the Prime95 testing cycles work? I understand rules are rules so I am fine with redoing it, I just assumed that when the main threads started and stopped (or where they were currently at) would be adequate. I will do it again in the next couple days with a higher overclock and post it with all the necessary info.
When you stop the test, at the end prime95 shows you the total time that you ran the test, or you can use LinX, with this you select the total time that you want run the test and this stop automatically when the total time is completed.
Sorry guys, I was gonna post my amd overclock...but...
I moved to intel... l5640...
not that i'm against amd just that I got a nice deal...lol
and I'm till keeping my amd system...i'll put it in another case
and give it to my dad for now i guess...I might still post an overclock from it though...
I just got a bigger toy set to play with... so if anything i'll keep you guys updated...lol
it actually might....
When I ran wityh my phenom II X4 at 3.6 - 3.8 it bottelnecked my gtx 285 (not too much but enough) when I got my xeon the bottelneck was gone and I was getting higher graphics scores...
So like I said it might bottelneck the card but probably not by too much...
Cpu: Athlon II X4 640

Just got done my first ever oc and got it stable....it sure did take a while! I've been reading many many guides and forum posts over the last couple days and a lot of them were on Tom's Hardware, including this one. Figured I'd share it with ya. Not quite as good as theOKAY's but close. The system likes to complain a lot if I put the CPU freq to 3.6 or higher, even if I send it up to 1.57V , so I gave up on acheiving 3.6
For some reason my CPU-Z validation shows as rejected and can't figure that one out, but there's the link anyway.....maybe it has something to do with the NB Frequency showing up incorrectly?
