Default question about overclocking suicide runs...for superpi

So for the system to be as stable as possible.. I am assuming that you go down to 1 stick of ram and disable all except 1 core right? Less stuff to be unstable

Mmm, disabling cores may help...

Though taking one stick of RAM might adversely affect performance.

yea it might effect performance if you are talking duel channel memory... But as far as cranking up the memory speed... less change of failure if there is half the hardware

I know one core is usually stronger than the other but I haven't heard or seen anyone running w/ just one stick.

lol, I know what you mean.

I keep telling myself, "you've already hit your wall on your suicide run", but every now and then I try to break that wall.
