Guest pedro Posted November 6, 2006 Posted November 6, 2006 I've spent all day reading THunDA's excellent overclocking thread. Congratulations to anyone and everyone involved in its production. It's been very helpful indeed. I'm at the stage where I'm testing out how much beef my CPU has (i.e. right at the beginning of the process). I've decided to take the approach of gently, gently so I'm using a vcore of 1.40V as opposed to jumping right in at, say, 1.60V and I've only pushed the FSB up to 215 and am now testing at 230. I don't want a real heavy overclock - I just want to learn how it's all done. I'm now running SuperPi 32M as per instructions. I'm measuring the temps using Smartguardian are they're looking fine (CPU = 30 degrees, chipset = 40 degrees). What I'd like to know is: a) What, exactly, am I testing here? Is it the upper limit for my CPU in terms of GHz? B) Should I be using 'aggressive' RAM timings whilst testing the CPU in this way? I.e. 2-2-2-5 with a vdimm of 2.90V. c) Is 2.90V the correct vdimm anyway for my RAM? d) Slightly off-topic: What is maximum payload size and should it be set at 4096? Thanks in advance! Pedro.
