Cool. So those of you who are actually reading this thread remember the computer I built this spring?

Well, I just finished a 24 Prime 95 test on my overclock.

Here is my bench score--

Temps were running in low 80's on air, but I have my tower under a desk in a corner room where it doesn't air out properly, so the ambient is going to be high. At rest, it runs in the mid to high thirties, low forties.

Vcore 1.26 normally, 1.48 max
VTT 1.34
Dram 1.664 (jut a tad high.. but not too bad).

That's right at a 37% overclock.... not bad on air. What do you all think?

Aww, man. Now I feel all jealous. The motherboard on the gaming rig I built burned out for no reason a couple months ago, and after fighting with Intel about the warranty, they finally sent me a new one. I put it all back together yesterday, but now the power won't come on. I am seriously bummed.

And you, my friend, have now officially gone all the way down the slippery slope! I'll see you at the modding competition next year...

I was quite excited about that! You don't know how hard I have tried to get a stable OC above 4g. (I did kinda cheat, as I am using the turbo boost to do it). But this way, I don't rocket my energy bill unless I truly need the power.

Nice Preach, I stopped at 3.8 on my OC. I love the i7's!

:chuckle:

Funny thing is... I started my bible program... and crashed my system... Yeah, that is after the 24 hour test!

So I had to bump up my Vcore... Its now just under 1.52. But seems to be running stable. Temps are up a bit though.... mid 40's. Thats ok for that kind of OC. Wouldn't mind it getting lower, but not going to freak about it.
