Haha I probably could but.. I wanted sort of a conservative tune. I don't think a little more would make much of a difference performance wise.

Not bad, I guess. Still need to get another fan to go push-pull with my H50

Nice OC, nothing wrong with those temps, of coarse lower is always better

Heres my overclock ,i can get to 4ghz easy but needs quite alot extra volts and i saw no real gain when encoding / gaming
and considering i can get my cpu to 3.8 ghz on stock volts i decided to stick with that clock speed

This was a stability test using amd overdrive .I ran it for 20 minutes the cpu doesnt really get hotter than that, unless, im playing a demanding game when both gpus are under full load even then it never goes over 50 not bad seen as the low rpm fans on the radiater


i luuurve my coolit eco:)

Thats not a stress test. Run Prime95 for about 12 hours, and you have stress tested it.

I was just replicating the highest temps that i get using my pc when encoding large files etc.

In my opinion putting you're cpu under stress for 12 hours is just retarded .
When you overclock you're gpu would you leave FurMark running for 12 hours aswell?

Whether you agree or not, that is the standard practice/procedure for stress testing an overclocked computer

Perhaps you should visit some overclcking sites for tips on stress testing overclocked systems? You would see some recommend more.

Yes, i know all about it being the norm
ive got my own tests that prove my cpu is stable
occt for an hour / crysis / gta 4 / Re-encode 10 gb file

i just dont need to run prime for 12 hours

when i have used prime ive only ever used it for 1 hour
seriously is you're pc ever going to be more stressed out than an hour of prime running?

I have to agree, it depends on how you run your system. If you’re running it very hard all day long you should run tests longer.

There are opinions on both extremes on the overclocking sites, after reading these and other information about long term effects of high temps and CPU degradation I've backed off my testing times.

Some say you should always disable EIST or stepping, I can't understand why you wouldn't take advantage of this technology, idling and running cooler is better, IMHO.
