    Surely not. Maybe the software doesnt read your rpm sensor right. Go into bios and disable smart fan control to the cpu.

    Alright, but will that do anything as far as reducing temps?

    Might give you a few C drop.

    Be careful, you don't want you temps to exceed 60*C.

    Well it's being a shit. I passed prime for 3 hours, but crashed playing bf3
    gone back to my settings I had at 240FSB (7-7-7-21 timing, 1.2V CPU voltage and stock voltages)

    Edit: crashed IMMEDIATELY at 240fsb now :( what kind of overclock deterioration is this?!
    235FSB is working just fine, I just came off 2 hours of Battlefield

    It's been plain sailing at 235FSB so far. almost two days gaming and normal use.
    Not sure if I'm ready for the next step though, seeing as something's clearly going wrong somewhere D:

    Mine is set at 270 fsb with a multiplier of 14.

    So thats about 3.8ghz and it never goes above 55 celsius at 1.445v for the cpu I believe.

    This is on air, I don't know if this helps or not. I don't use prime95 though as every computer I have tested with it overheats. I am sure its just operator error. I just use 3dmark11.

    I'd agree. I think you have case flow issues possibly as my setup seems to be par for the course with the 1055t.

    I've got the two fans on and a side fan... do you think the side fan's fucking up my flow?

    As a point of full disclosure, most of my knowledge of oc'ing comes from lurking this forum and others, so I am not an expert. However, flow is something I know about.

    Having flow perpindicular to another stream of flow is about the best way to disrupt both of them.


    I do not see any point what so ever in side ventilation if you can support a proper intake and exhaust setup. There are exceptions though, but those exceptions normally require a fan too loud for a normal pc environment.

    Make sure you seal that hole and that your case is relatively air tight. I doesn't have to be perfect,, but you want to force the air in then out a specific path making sure appropriate components are cooled.

    If you find you have nothing to seal that holw with effectively, then run all your front and rear case fans in intake mode and your side in exhaust or vice versa. That way atleast they will have a congruent flow.

    proper case flow, front fans intake, rear fans exhaust.

    thats how you keep dust collection down too

    i was just pointing out that having fans blowing in and none exhausting will cause dust issues

    Reviving this thread cos I'm overclocking again
    Just ran 17h 40m of Small FFT, can I safely call that stable or should I run some blends too?
    this is at FSB 222
