My System Specs


Hmmm, not much really. Try to keep temps under 80 for 24/7 stability, under 90 as a hard ceiling to aim for. turn up your load line calibration if you're getting blue screens under load. That's basically all there is to it. IF you have the cooling, you can turn your voltage up high enough to get to 5.0 Ghz... To hit 5.0 though, you either need a remarkably good chip, or some seriously good cooling. As a reference, I have an H80i, and what I would consider is an average chip, and I can comfortably do 4.7. I'm not sure I would be comfortable pushing it to 5.0 with my current cooling setup.
