First overclock, comments?
Arite ladies, had a shot at my first CPU overclock today. Stuck a cnps9500 on the cpu and a VF900 on the graphics. I'm running a 755 pentium d, 3.2 and its now clocked at 3527, fsb upto 220 from 200. In reality i just went into the bios, and selected a 10% overclock and waited to see what happened. Been running 3d mark, battlefield, just cause all afternoon now, and the CPU tops out at about 54 degrees. How far do these processors usually push? Ive got the 9200 gt up as far as itt'l go without a voltmod too, currently putting out 747 on the mem and topping out around 42 under heavy load. Is with this temp is it worth me volt modding it and pushing it further? Any comments/suggestions on my setup?? Cheers
