Default Overclocking with Gigabyte GA-945GCMX S2

guyz

i am overclocking my pc with Gigabyte GA-945GCMX S2 and Intel C2D E4500 2.2 Ghz. thing is that my PSU is not that good. but i have two other small fans attached in my casing for extra airflow. i am OCing my cpu to 2.48 Ghz. so do u guyz think that my PSU will be able to support it and wont burn the mobo?? last night i ran the pc overcloked for 8-9 hours and my temp dint go higher than 46 degree centigrade.

centigrade? you mean celsius?

anyways... a bad PSU isn't really a problem unless it can't provide enough amps or watts... or it might just die on you

make sure your stressing the CPU... 2.48ghz is a fine overclock, you could probably go to 3.0 easy

ahh mistake i wanted to mean celsius...... bad PSU wont be burning my cpu rather at most will die itself..... rite?? that wont be a prob for me as PSUs' are dirt cheap... and i am continously monitoring the temperature ......

actually well the problem is that a cheap PSU can cause big problems... it could die and bring the whole system down with it... but it should be fine, if you can, save money for a decent PSU

I dont know, the 945P chipset isnt exactly synonimous with stunning FSBs.

Yes like Prime95 and CPU Stability Test. If you really want to stress it run both simultaneously.

guyz need another suggeston


i have been oc ing with my 945gcmx s2 and e4500 and currently i am running oc'd at 2.75 ghz. coretemp shows idle temp 31-32 degree and while loaded 44-45 degree. but the thing is that gpu temp always idle at 59 degree. so do u think this gpu temp will cause bad to the gpu?? is there anything i can do so that gpu teml doesnt go up becuase of the cpu oc ing?? cheerz


EDIT:: just installed OCCt 2.0 and found a big diff in Temp. Coretemp shows idle 32 degree while OCCT shows idle 47 degree. which to beleive???
