I think the name describes it all - You can discuss any and every thing related to cpu over clocking here - when you have reached a nice speed by ocing the cpu and you want to show off this to the others just post in here according to the rules and I'll list it in here ;-)

Before OCing read this :

> I don't take any kind of responsibility on how the information mentioned in this thread or posts will be used.
> If you want to OC the cpu or any related components do it at your own risk.
> Make sure you have proper ventilation and cooling equipment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is great chart by asigh that will help you understand the logical steps behind OC

Digit Technology Discussion Forum - View Single Post - Overclock List & Discussion Thread

Some Useful OC related Tools :

CPU-Z, GPU-Z, AMD Overdrive, CoreTemp, RealTemp, Orthos, Prime95, superpi, wprime, OCCT

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rules : ( Updated on 17th Jan 2012 )

From now on You have to add a CPU-Z screen shot of CPU, Memory and Mainboard tab along with your forum id / user name and date clearly visible on a notepad / wordpad window and post in the format mentioned below

Here's an example post ;-)
http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/1563331-post527.html

GPU-Z screen shot needed if you have OCed your gpu and want to show off though this is optional.

Do post in this Format :

^+1.

But I know it is CM Hyper 212, so no worries. Good initiative topgear! I'll post in my OC too when I do it finally (TRUE 120 or Vendetta 2... :) )!

Mods please make this sticky and move it to Hardware Troubleshooting. :) A lot of OCers around here... amitash, darklord, desiibond, damngoodman999, j1n_matt, asigh, etc. :razz:

@ amitash - Nice OC you got their on core i7 920 with that x58 board. 4Ghz just with 1.28V is just great :p

^actually tats the weird part...its stable 1.28v at 3.99-4Ghz, but even when i want 4.1ghz bootable i need 1.325v...max i booted was 4.3ghz with 1.36v

re: Overclock List & Discussion Thread

Post the multiplier like in your pic it's 17X
Post the Vcore under load - measure it by running prime95 stress test & cpu-z side by side.
What's your set vcore under bios - is it 1.33V ? as I can see your idle vcore under windows is 1.382V :p

Do edit your post and add in those details :p

re: Overclock List & Discussion Thread

Sorry to interrupt but whats the point in posting overclocks in this format ? If you want to gather info about clocks by people which are 24x7 capable then it makes sense if you make it mandatory to include a screenshot where in cpu-z, SuperPi32M/Wprime 1024M / Prime 95 for 30 Mins run should be included then only this thread would prove useful.

This is just my personal opinion though.

re: Overclock List & Discussion Thread

Thanks a lot, topgear, for starting this thread. I am relatively new to OCing and I am sure I shall learn a lot from this thread.

BTW amitash's rig seems pretty close to mine, down to even the mobo! I guess I can learn directly from his experience in OCing. Am I lucky or what!

Totally agreed...stable OC's are what really counts...

BTW somethings weird...with my hd3870x2 + core i7, i could clock 4.2ghz stable, but with the 295, i can barely manage 4

AMitash is using water cooling , u use core i7 - post ur own way of OCing ???
There will be no difference in OCing methods...only the extent to which it can be achieved...and anyway the cooler i have isnt something great...I would say its equal to the new TRUE 1366 edition or the megahalem...But those things cost as much and im afraid they may be too heavy and bulky to offer air flow....and w/c cooling jus looks so much cooler so went for tat.

P.S. damngoodman link to your wallpaper please!

I am not yet ready for OCing my new rig. Not until I get a good aftermarket CPU cooler. I have chosen Noctua NH-U12P SE2 which includes two 120 mm fans. Let's see when it arrives.

Comments:
System is stable. No crashes. The only issue is that I am not able to get my RAM upto the designated 1066Mhz. The max I can get it is around 1016Mhz. I guess will need to tweak the NB voltage a bit. But am happy that I stretched it to 4.00 GHz. (Approx. 43%)

Have not OC'ed my GPUs that much. They seem to be doing the job. But yes they both get stressed during games. The OC definately helps that.

Am really happy with the Coolermaster Hyper 212. It does the job well. Without it my OC would not be possible.


*****************************************************************************************************
UPDATED
*****************************************************************************************************

Friends..have updated my OC proof images/data. Now you can see:

OCCT run of 40 mins.
Note the timer, it shows 19min, 7s. It runs on a reverse decrement.

occtscreen.jpg


Temperature log for above:
2009091900h01cpu1.png


A Crysis Warhead run. (~20 mins)
CoreTemperature Application is logging the temperatures every 30 seconds. Graph created in MS-Excel.
crysisrun.jpg


I let the system idle for around 3 minutes, temperature is approximate 38C. The CPU load hits after that, and the temperature soars. Average is the pink line ~54C

re: Overclock List & Discussion Thread

^^ LOL MAN
58degreee :O
On load
62-64:O on CM690 :O
Man you gotta Kiddn me..thats Pretty High
Ram : Corsair XMS2 CM2X2048-8500C5 4 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 @ 1016 Mhz.
How these are 800MHz they Should Be running on 1066MHz By default
Somethings not good seems

However When I did OC on My E7400 before @ 3.98GHz
Idle was 31-33degree only and on load after 1.5hrs OCCT it max crossed 58degree which is near to your Idle,....

Man that's My Xigmatek's Thor's Hammer
Beware of that Hyper 212 Man
