I have spent, as many of us have, probably a month's worth of sundays trying to get the "Perfect" Overclock, of which, of course, there is no such thing. Anyway, my benchmark of choice for benchmark progress has been Aquamark3, for some reason. I guess 'caus it has pretty graphics, runs only a couple of minutes, and shows big ##'s for scores. My best so far has been 107,098, with the system shown in my sig. below. I have problems with newer benchmarks, like PC Mark 05, 06 have trouble completing (usually) either just freezing, or blue screen. I would like , no love it, if someone out there with a system similar to mine, (I know it's a pretty popular setup), to give me some of THEIR BIOS settings, or clues, so I can get some relief from frustration. In addition, the last score I got before sleep last night , was down to 100,184 on Aqaumark. I was too tired to go on. But I did switch vid. drivers to v126.96.36.199 from, v188.8.131.52, the later seemed to be faster. I guess I'll go back, unless someone has used better? I think I messed up the voltages, too, but I don't remember what I changed by that point. Anyone got some settings for me? My hardware, (below), might help with some suggestions. THANK YOU!!!
p.s.: never work on your machine when you're overtired bad things happen.
