    Yeap, that sounds good.

    Maybe you could pick up a better cooler though when you have the extra $$, because that is a rather warm temp for those lower voltages so you cooler isn't the greatest

    I currently have a Coolit systems Domino A.C.L which was only £60 ($88) after I ran it for a bit longer it became unstable so have had to change it to<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    4.005GHz at 1.272v Muli 24 and bus to 167 so the temp goes between 37 - 79 <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I do a lot of animation renders so it can run pity hi for a couple of days <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Would it be better if when I was going to leave it to run for a long time to drop it down to the following<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    3.6GHZ at 1.15v Muli 24 and bus at 150 so the temp won’t go above 62.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Thanks<o:p></o:p>

    Ya 79 is a bit warm, maybe get a 3.8 profile setup and temps would be somewhere in the middle of that for your longer render times

    Hi I got the hi tamps from the 4.008ghz settings when running prime95 (stress tester) when I run a render out which pushes the CPU it only goes up to 73 so will probably leave it at that.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    Thanks for all your help I have found this thread very helpful and am happy with my results as this is the first time I have over clocked anything.
