Default quick oc ?

Ok it is recommended to take it slow when overclocking so my question is....do you run a full 8 hours of prime95 every time you up the FSB by 3 or 4?

8 hours...probably not that long unless you want to be really cautious.. .i would say about half an hour to an hour then up it by 1 or 2 each time

i would run prime95 for liek 30 minutes between each 5-10mhz. and then once i feel like i reached the spot, i would test prime95 overnight

yea, i get good results by upping at 5-10mhz at a time and running prime for like 15-20 minutes each increment. I keep overclocking until it's unstable, back off a bit and run prime overnight. if it fails, back off a little more and repeat.
