X58 OCing
 
Hey everyone.

Well this is not my first time OCing, but it is for a LGA1366 i7 950
So I read a few threads on OCing the X58. But I want to know is this correct
Gigabyte easy turner 6
Now the room temp is 26C out side right now is 29C at 2:30AM
so 4.3GHz pretty good
stable no issues ran a few stress test, any new stress programs out for the i7 chips


here is a pic

I think IntelBurnTest (IBT) and Prime95 are the well known ones. IBT works really well for the quad core i7's, but I've heard that it's not so great on the hex cores. Prime95 is also a really good one. Which ones did you use to test the stability of your current overclock?

I use the prime95. tested for 8hrs, so its stable at 4.3GHz, but wanted to see if there was something new for the i7 chips
will try the IBT one and see.

Going to download linx and run it,at same time with prime.
I game BC2 with no issues, I will run prime and game and see.

For stability, run Linx + Furmark - even if the GPUs aren't OC'd. Sometimes, a perfectly stable CPU will fail when gaming because the GPUs suck enough from the PSU's 12v rail to cause ripple or to cause line regulation deviation in excess of what is required to keep the CPU stable. And you don't have to run it for long - an hour is more than enough. 24hr Prime runs are a thing of the past.

Cinbench 11.5 64 Bit CPU test

Cant get a good run at 21 / 200 /1588 on mine


FFT-Z is fun

Thanks I will try those out.
Still using Linx and Furmark right now, 8hrs and 20mins so far. Stable @ 4.37GHz
