I have been working on my cooling b4 oc'ing. Now i am trying to learn about oc'ing. 1st I need a reason to oc. I think it will make my games play smoother, and make video converting go faster? I hope this is true...lol. Otherwise I am wasting my time. I have been using Prime95 and ai suite to do my oc'ing. I adjust the settings using turbo v incrementally every 30 min. I am currently experimenting with it in X2 mode and not X4. I have it right now at 1.4v and 208cpu freq x 19 cpu ratio. It has been stable for the last 30 min. Currently 77*f in my house and cpu 37*c and sys is at 27*c. I want to find out what people usually do with this processor, and how to decide to up the ratio and frequency to get the right combo. When I unlock the other 2 cores I get random crashed like 2-3x a month randomly, and often during boot-up at the windows logo, and that is why I am going for dual core oc instead.
