Default Re: I need help overclocking a Q8200 w/ Asus P5Q Pro board.

Ok I just ordered 2 tubes, gonna replace my gtx 480's paste too since I put arcticsilver5 on there also.

I put my vcore to 1.25, ran stable for 8 hours. Core 1 max temp hit 72c while core 2-4 didnt go above 67c.

Hopefuly this new paste will get me where I need to be.

I swear OC'ing is an addiction... I get 3ghz stable, now I kind of want 3.2ghz... Kinda feels good that I actually accomplished what I was aiming for. Can't belive Prime95 didn't fail on me even after I dropped it to 1.25 from 1.35!!!

My Current Comp:

CPU Type: Intel Quad Q8200
Motherboard: P5Q Pro
System Memory: 4GB DDR2
GFX Card: Gigabyte GTX 480 Femi
Power Supply: TruePower Antec 750W
Case: Antec Sonata III 500W Black ATX w/ 2 120mm fans - 1 by HD's 1 on the back.
