I'll Post mine up for my Evga x58 and i7 920 C0 once I find the paper I have it written down on....lol
On another Note I like to use OCCT as well for stability testing, I like it because it stresses all the core and memory, and gives you per second charts of important voltages and temps.
Oh great stuff Der Meister!
I have used OCCT also and meant to include it hear...
I will add it this afternoon or tomorrow.
This is great De Meister about OCCT and using that as well def a good one and easy to use and look forward to your post.
I mentioned OCCT it that lame note pad .txt file it works really great and you can check an Nvidia vid card based system really quick for stability.
4hams how about adding Furmark and Gpui Z thread whatever saw a post a while back in here and having sluggish game performance is kinda vague
heck I'll find it if possible and post it that thread
We gotta watch some of these downloads for proper links you know what I mean I think I might have had a bit buggy IntelBurn also
could you clarify if we are going to prefer CoreTemps as opposed to Real Temp ?
how about the possibility of forming a little group or such ;'cause I know your busy and there is a lot to do and some may want to contribute
looks like we got some great stuff rolling along and looking forward to it [:)]

Thanks for participating and sharing your settings with us Der Meister!
thanks for posting and sharing your settings as well Der Meister
noticed that Furmark has a newer updated version 1.9.0 released and sure looks like it def heats up a bit more for the vid card as opposed to 1.8so I'll be a bit careful at this time
So maybe Ok to post in here .some Furmark & vid card OC.as well bios etc
I do not have the beast of vid cards that some have & will post either way this way I can share and learn as well ,,others may post
in the meantime got my eye on a newer cpu cooler that is likely to fit my little mini -setup that I can afford .
Edit notes: added Furmark 1.9.0 Changelog
Looks like you guys have a good start to a new thread wish I could be of help to you guys but just got some things going on and been getting side tracked a lot also I had mentioned my daughter has some medical issues going on that have me to say the least very concerned but you guys are doing great! What do you think about posting screenshots or I guess I mean photo,s of your actual bios settings like this below of course it might be a little hassle but its a good way for someone to see the real world settings or get a better visual on the settings! Its just a thought you guys are doing fine you dont need my input! These are actuall shot of a board likemine the Asus M4A79T Deluxe!
Jus a thought!
Hi amdcrankitup ,thanks for popping in and sharing those great pic snaps of the bios screens .the more ideas and feedback the better.
I realize now that before I started to play with that 5770 card. the other day when I checked and replaced the thermal paste.I should remembered to take a pic of the factory application ..and shared it here and my application TX 2 dropped thermals down at least 5C.
so your post is a good reminder to take pics sometimes
Hope all is going to be well and thanks.
looks like we got some great stuff rolling along and looking forward to it
Hi rrplay, I'd rather keep the GPU info out of this thread and keep it focused on the bios settings for CPU overclocking and stability testing.
If you want to start another thread about GPU overclocking I would be glad to help out there if possible.
I will add an entry for "Real Temp" later today if time permits. I just prefer Core Temp.
thanks for joining us here! Photos of your bios is a great way to post the settings. If folks have a digital camera it is probably the easiest way to show all the settings as opposed to typing out all the settings like I did...
Hope things get better for you and your daughter! I have 4 daughters so I can empathize with you. Know that we are thinking of you and your family! [:)]
OK thanks 4hams I agree that this should be just pertinent to CPU OC and stability testing might as well start another vid thread .Core Temp cool here
hope you don't mind if I borrow some of your Disclaimer info stuff >>>going to need it ! if not let me know
and a good thing coolice got that emabarassing moments thread aka [ 'da Doghouse]
'cause there's likely to be a bit of stumbling and fumbling along the way [:)]
'cause there's likely to be a bit of stumbling and fumbling along the way
Thanks rrplay! And for sure about the disclaimer!
OK got it started aka post pending ...maybe some more pals of ours will stop by ??
esp when they see what we're up 2 !!
Doghouse here I come !
There was a general OC guide we were working on a year or so ago....
I think I have seen that thread and it started back in 2009 or 2008. But it was never finished so people could follow it... The problem with overclocking threads is they have to be small yet detailed, and they have to be very specific to the particular CPU. Core 2 Duo and Quads are clocked differently than i7's and differently than Sandy Bridge due to technology changes in the hardware.
That is why I wanted this info to be posted for all computer users as a quick reference regarding users settings for the hardware they list. this could cover any CPU and Motherboard.
Hope more folks will post!
Hope things get better for you and your daughter! I have 4 daughters so I can empathize with you. Know that we are thinking of you and your family!
Thanks some time seeing setting in the bios for me anyway gives me a better and comparing results is very informative! I often go to some of the big Ocers sites and try to find some to compare to and I learn by others what might work better my my particular setup! Im by no means no big time professional overclocker I just study others settings and sometimes wing it and have been known to really take it to the limit epsecially on driving to voltage up a little to the limits but so far I been fortunate and causious enough not to smoke my rig!!! YET!! LOL
Thanks in re: to my daughters health issues still has me very nervous and concerned just praying and taking one day at a time! If you have kids you know that you kids are you life and she is no doubt MY dadys little girl even at 22yrs of age she is my life and so is my son and my Great little grandson! Grandkids are the greatist invention since ICE Cream!! You can love them, they give you unconditional love~!!! You can spoil the crap outof them and most of all send them home and let them terrorize MOM and Dad and that by itself is so so Fun! LOL Thanks guys!
Thanks Der Meister ! OCCT is great ! simple and easy to use !! [:)]
4hams I know your busy ..so...some info & post for convenience::
Its features : * 3 different test types o CPU = no RAM tested, a lot of heat generated on the CPU, errors are usually CPU-centered o RAM = Maximum error detection, tests the whole chain CPU-Chipset-Memory o Mix = CPU and RAM alternated * 3 tests modes o Auto = 1h long Mix test o Custom (Infinite) = Infinite loop of the test type of your choice o Custom (fixed) = A test of the type of your choice, and of a duration of your choice * Integrated monitoring and System information thanks to CPU-Z and HWmonitor engine * External Monitoring Program support through plugins (Everest, Speedfan, and many more) * Graph output showing temperatures and voltages of your computer

*** Notes :One of the first things to do is to check your settings in the Options for safe CPU Temps and Monitoring !I f you are not sure post with sceenshot as on page 1 of this thread like 4hams did and ask ! & [read disclaimer again]
>>Strongly Recommend that users Evaluate their OC - CPU &
GPU running several short 'custom ' stress tests before stressing their
systems with OCCT for an hour !!
already had some of OCCT info in the vid thread [View:http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/t/54045.aspx]
& just changed the screenshot to show the Linpack CPU info.
