Oh yes, that was at 1.55. It got toasty

Even for my 24/7 speed of 3.2 I have a slight vcore adjustment. Running at 1.3625, up from 1.325. It could run PI at 3.2 and stock vcore, but failed dual prime. At 1.3625, it is stable as can be

Hey no such luck on those settings, 3.1 seems to be the max I can get. Any ideas?

Try keeping divider at 2, but putting timings back to auto.

Try:
+.1 on FSB
+.1 vMCH
PCI-e locked at 100. Can also try anything between 100 and 110.

Raise vcore. What are you at now?

Okay, so I got it to 3.2 now, stable, what time did you get on SuperPI 1M @ 3.2? I wanna compare, see if they are about the same.

I kinda wanna give it a rest for a while, play some games, I didn't really give it any burn in time, so that may be a problem so I'm gunna play some games, check the temps and try for higher tomorrow.

Plus I get my new case tomorrow which has better cooling and doesn't have melting wires in it.

Cool. I get about 18sec at 3.2. You should be quite a bit faster than that with the 4mb cache.

Let's see I get 17.390 with firefox and explorer.exe running at 3ghz. It wasn't stable enough at 3.2 to keep it there, but here's a screeny of 3.2 for me.

Okay so I decided that I hate Prime95, it always fails no matter what, so screw it.

32M SuperPI, and Prey for 3 hours straight is stable enough for me!

And BTW heres the cable that melted and smoked
