Adventures in overclocking
« on: November 04, 2013, 04:16:26 AM »

So over the past two weeks I've been slowly trying to make my 3.6 ghz overclock on my phenom x4 955 stable. I think I finally have something going where the voltage going to the cpu is at 3.8 volts, and finally I turned off all of the "save power by making things not work as well" options on my motherboard. I really aught to let a stress test run longer than 2 hours, but I'm too impatient for that. In the end, I think this time I have it stable just because I turned off the thing that was keeping the voltage lower than what I set it to, but I guess I'll see if it is or not when my computer spazzes out while I do something a week down the line.
