Why are you telling your story for the 3rd time???In the end, if my computer "has yet to crash" with my overclock, and has been this way for almost a year, why do i need to care about anything else? I can achieve lower temps by running my vCore lower then then what would be considered "stable" by these stressing apps, and yet still never crash... So i have yet to see the upside.
Just FYI, my CPU is at 334x9 @ 1.29375v in the BIOS, i idle at roughly 26/27 degrees, and the ONLY time i have crashed this system is by running this app.
I have been searching around and checking out all kinds of forums and wanted to get some feedback on my Q9550 and temps.
I have the following:
Q9550 at 3.4 Ghz (400 FSB,)
ASUS P5Q-E (801 Mhz)
4x2GB GSkill DDR2
The idles seem to be great at about 25-32 depending on the core, but when I run IntelBurn and 3DMark05, the temps go up in the mid 90s. I have run IntelBurrn 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 passes and have no error for all runs, though I have been concerned about the temp druing testing. I ran 3DMark05 for about 2 hours but that was before I found IntelBurn.
Question or concern is based on what I have seen in this thread and others, most people say that they see load with IntelBurn of 65-75, I can only dream of this. Should I be concerned long term? The other thing I seem to notice is that Vista Business 64 seems to have flipped out once I have OC. The only thing wrong with Vista is when I have OC the Software Licensing Service is not able to be enabled which then makes it think that it's not genuine. I am going to put the setting back to stock and see if that fixes the error, as I hate to restore back to 11/16 date (last date of restore) and have to redo all the things I have done since.
Thanks, ahead of time, for all of your help
Seems like a great group here!
why?you should have your bios set to turn your machine off way before you hit mid 90's. thats a tad warmish.
