Is it MY computer? I'm married, so I'm not SURE!
I do know that I can't get the thing running at 9Ghz with the heat sink that came with it. 5 would probably be too much also.
Maybe I should work on tweaking up the software to see if I can get more speed while staying at 3.6Ghz.
My RAMDrive exists partially for speed, partially for less wear on the SSD, and to save time, I know the SSD will last about as long as an HDD.
My Temp files go to the RAMDrive, I KNOW that is a speed boost over my SATA2 SSD..
What else can I do?
9Ghz really dude you are a better overclocker then me if you can achieve that
You can get a decent overclock off of the 8150 if you are going to bump it up
Yes I understand you spent alot of post trying to figure out the ram issue and all ordering ram etc........
you already have a turbo of 4Ghz honestly unless you have a waterloop and a good air circulation things will heat up fast If you have a decent air heatsink i would only go to about 4.2 Ghz max you would get on air before reaching thermal issues on air would be about 4.5 max if you can get it to stablize
