First off, thanks everyone for your help over the last few days.
I've spent tonight overclocking my newly built system, and I think it went pretty darn well. I just want to run all the settings and conditions by you experts, to see if I'm missing anything important / potentially damaging.
Core2Duo E4500 2.2Ghz
EVGA 680i SLI
2 Mb OCZ DDR2 800
Linked mode, 5:4 ratio
FSB 1125 Mhz, RAM 900 Mhz
Clock speed 3.09 Ghz
CPU Core: 1.39375v (1.35v)
CPU FSB: 1.3v
nForce SPP 1.4v
nForce MCP 1.5v
HT nForce SPP 1.2v
It runs stable here, and completed 15 minutes of Orthos stress testing. Idle CPU temp around 33c. 100% CPU load temp 51c.
Memory Timings left in auto. They are now:
It runs Photoshop CS3 faster than I've ever seen, which was my ultimate goal here. I get the feeling I could push further, but I don't need to. A 3.1 Ghz dual core chip for $50... can't argue with that!
Thanks again... and someone please let me know if my computer is soon going to blow up.
