Hello Guys i'm new to the forum and this is my first post. Heres my current spec. Q9300 (Sadly) NZXT LEXA case, 120mm fan in front 1 120mm fan out side and 1 back, 1 80mm top out and 1 80mm bottom in 2*2gb pc6400 4 4 4 15 OCZ REAPER ASUS p5Q-E 500gb SATA 2* Gigabyte 4850 in Crossfire Coolermaster 700w PSU Asetek LCLC cpu cooler Running under Vista Home Premium 64 Right i know i made a mistake with regard to the cpu but have currently managed a stable overclock of 3417, 455*7.5@ 1.4V with memory running at 900mhz 2.3v 5 5 5 16. I'm happy with my overclock but want more. Any tips. P.s. im idling at 52c and full load at 82c when running prime. My GPUs are @ stock speeds at the moment, they get very hot. Idling at 76c and load at 88c which is very hot which is why i wont clock them. I can squeeze maybe 670/1070 without problems but after they get far too hot. So i have left them stock until i can get hold of the new scythe twin turbo's. I have adjusted the side fan to exhaust head from the graphics which make about 4c difference on board temp. so i have left them at that. Im getting these bench's, 21151 3dmark 05, 16839 3dmark 06, pcmark 05 10852, do these seem reasonable for my spec or is there more to come. How do i disable speedstep and is it worth doing. I have ordered some ocz freeze which i will be trying to reduce temps a tad. There are a load of settings in the bios and this is how i have set mine are these ok? transaction booster disabled CPU Pll auto fsb termination auto NB voiltage 1.4 SB auto clock over charging voltage auto load line calibration auto cpu ctl auto mb ctl auto cpu spread spectrun disabled pci spread spectrum disabled FSB strap to north bridge auto cpu cie enabled maxcpuid value limit disabled vanderpool technology enabled cpu tm enabled execute enabled. Im looking for tips on how to get more, can i get more? Also is it worth disbaling speedstep? Are my benchs any good? or should i expect more from my system? Kind regards And thanks for viewing.
