Windows 7: New to OCing

Sygnus, Ciara, BCXtreme, Wishmaster,

Thank you a bunch! I have an AMD 955 Black Edition Quad core. The reason I need a fast computer is not because I am a big gamer, although I do like to play, it is because I trade stocks. The faster I can make my computer the better. This will give you an example of what I am trying to accomplish:

Multiple Monitor Computers

What I did so far is raise the multiplier to 18X, left the voltage on auto and the FSB is at 200 MHz and it raised it to 3.6GHz. My temps which I monitor on HW monitor didn't get over 41*C, then I raised the multiplier to 19X still left the voltage stock and the FSB at 200MHz. it went to 3.8Ghz. With my trading program on, a web page, Microsoft Outlook, CPU-Z, HW monitor the max temp is 43*C. Should I try the stress test now like Prime 95?

I will wait till the new HS arrives though before trying to go higher.

Ideally youll want to let Prime 95 run overnight (approx 10hrs is a good amount of time) to ensure your OC is stable.

But letting it run for 15-20min will give you an idea of what your tempratures will be at a full load.

Keep in mind, that you will likely never stress your PC that hard in any realworld situation, to get it that hot.
However, your loaded temps in Prime95 should still be within a safe margin.

I wouldn’t attempt to run prime95 overnight until you are sure your temps are stable first. This means running prime for a few hours while keeping an eye on the temps. Once you feel comfortable they are stabilized, then if you want, you can run prime95 overnight.

Myself, I’ve never ran prime95 for more than 5 hours, but that’s me. And as Wishmaster stated, you’ll rarely run you system as hard as prime 95 does, so….

Anyway I was running my i7-930 (2.8gig) to 3.52gig crystal smooth without issues and prime95 load temps in the low 70’s.

Now that I have my i7-950 (3.06gig), I'm trying to push it to 3.8gig but I find this processor is not as voltage friendly as my 930 was, thus I'm battling heating issues because proportionately, this one needs more voltage. Bottom line, I think I got a bad chip compared to my 930.

This is what I mean when I say overclocking depends on the chip as well.

Very good point and I certainly agree with you.
Thanks for pointing that out.

Thanks. BTW you happen to know what the max voltage is for his processor? - See this post - https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ml#post1188318

Not without doing some research. Im very unfamiliar with AMD these days.

If I recall correctly, their Vcore voltages are usually a bit higher than Intel, so 1.4 would sound reasonable to me for an AMD.
But Im not 100% sure on that.
