Default [email protected] on 780i overclock

So far, the results are very good



temps are 30-32C idle but peaked at 71C (core temps stayed about equal) early during prime testing. Generally, the temps stayed between high 50s and mid 60s depending on what fft length prime95 was using.

not a bad cpu for $75 and the ram was a great bargain as well!

Going to be trying 3.5Ghz testing tonight

Thanks B - correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like we have the same PSU and ram - so far both items are performing flawlessly, although the ram is still under testing......

I got the psu for my xmas upgrade in order to run sli on my old DFI Nforce 4 expert board - so far so good: a psu you can install and forget about it - lots of stable juice when you need it.

Yeah- I Like the PSU lots, but the RAM is just ok- not much for overclocking.

I also managed to get my E2160 running at 3.4GHz (9x378 on a DS3L). Tried 3.6GHz but I couldn't get the system to boot into Windows. Tried upping the voltage as far as 1.6V before calling it quits. Definitely happy with what the results though.
