Windows 7: anyone mind taking a gander over my overclock settings?

anyone mind taking a gander over my overclock settings?

Hey Guys what's the craic?

This is my 1st post so hope I'm in the right place. I got an overclocked bundle from overclockers.co.uk a good while ago and when I got it all setup I flashed the bios and of course I flashed the overclock settings with it. I tried getting on their forum to see about getting the settings off someone but that became a nightmare so at this point I thought sweet ill do myself. With this very helpful guide hxxp://www.overclockers.com/3-step-guide-overclock-core-i3-i5-i7/ I got the cpu to overclocked to 4.2 and learned a shitload about my pc and the bios for free!!! ok so in the mean time I managed to get overclockers to send me their settings so I could compare. The 1st time I seen the bios settings before I "lost" them there was loads of the voltage settings changed but when I got them the 2nd time less had been "overclocked" (basically the same overclock settings I ended up with doing it myself ) what I have here is a mix of the 2 settings the best I understand them. Can anyone please give me their wisdom and any thoughts? thanx

Hi,

Looks good. Have you stress-tested for stability? The overclock isn't much good unless it stays stable under load.

Some stress testing tips:

1. Download IntelBurnTest from download from Guru3D.com
- you use this to stress your CPU

2. Download HWINFO64 from HWiNFO64 Download
- you use this to monitor your temperatures (important!!!)

3. Install HWINFO64 and run the SENSOR-ONLY bit from the splash screen - you should see a panel displaying key temperatures:

4. Run 3 IntelBurnTest stress tests using these settings:

- Standard
- High
- Very High

IMPORTANT : you MUST monitor your temperatures during these test. You want to carefully observe the CPU Digital Thermal Sensor temperatures as shown above. Your CPU has a maximum TCase temperature of 72.6 degress C - please confirm that with link below. Usually we add 5 degrees to that. So, if your CPU starts approaching 77.6 degrees C, immediately stop the tests.

Intel® Core

If your CPU passes the stress tests, then all 5 residual values, as ringed in red above, will be the same:

Let us know how you get on. Remember that stress-testing stresses the system - you do so entirely at your own risk.

Golden

Just looking at your memory. Check you bios to see if you have it running in profile XMP. It should be running at 1600 Mz. Very simple way to clock the memory. If it is then it is just the way it is being shown in the above program.

Just saw that the memory you have listed in your specs & the memory posted above are different so check that first.

thanx for the reply. ive been using realtemp and prime95 and as far as i can tell it seems fine. doesnt flicker or shutdown. only slows the computer down while the test runs. the memory is set in the bios 1600MHz and when the pc starts it says 1600MHz on the 1st screen. but ineverything else its says 800.0 MHz. not sure whats wrong there

DDR = Double Data Rate 800*2=1600mhz

It's being reported correctly. It's all good mate
