    Run TaskInfo while you're testing to verify that no other background processes are interfering. You should see the virtually the same IBT % of cpu usage during each test.

    Also I have noticed, that sometimes, not always, a second run results are not good, so I always quit and re-run IBT before the test.

    Conners, I'm gonna report ya to the S.P.C.C.C. aka Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Computer Chips.

    Brigs, don't feel bad, Conners has one of the worst cases of O/COCD....
    ....OverClocking Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

    I guess I'm just an ungrateful SOB, Conners was kind enough to send me his smiley collection, which included the deadhorse.gif icon in my signature.
    Since I added this icon to my signature three weeks ago, it has been downloaded 7,607 times.
    Obviously, adding the icon is far and away the most valuable contribution that I've made to the TweakTown forums.

    LMFAO @ Conners and Jim, hey guys... man I love bein' 1'up'd; Brings a good feelin for my day wakin' up on a sunday LOL

    I was pretty happy with that one run I posted with my OC at 3.61ghz and my GFlops at almost 51; Pretty damn good for me, I'm happy LOL, though I still have to run IBT again with my "set standard" with each run of IBT to ensure accuracy of each run...since I have been an idiot and running IBT differently every time I benchmark LOL

    I'm givin my CPU a rest for a day or so since I ran a 24 hour Prime Blend on my 3.61ghz OC with pll and vcore upped 1 notch, passed fine though.

    Quick question though, as you could see in my screenshot in previous post, when I am running my 3.61ghz OC with pll and vcore up 1 notch my cpu temp as you can see jumped to a 76c, which in essence, suggests to me that I really don't wanna go any higher with this HSF... So that being said, I know IBT is the max burn your gonna get on your cpu, but its not real world usage like when playing games and such. When I play games I usually have max temps in the low 50's for cpu and upper 40's for core temps, so does that mean I can run my 3.61ghz OC all the time safely, even though on IBT my cpu gets up to 76c? (core temps stay at 66c highest)

    thanx for input gentlemen!

    I don't think that increasing CPU PLL from 1.50 to 1.57 raises cpu temperatures. Was the room temperature the same in each of the tests?
    I'm comfortable with IBT temps in the mid to upper 70 degree range. As long as TM2 is enabled in the bios, your CPU will protect itself from extreme temperatures. I have no problem testing with IBT Threads = # of cpu physical cores, which yields higher temps and GFlop scores. I've had many cases where IBT completed successfully, only to have Prime95 or OCCT fail. For this reason, I only run IBT for 5 - 10 loops.

    I suggest going for 3.80GHz now, temperatures be damned. If you need some reassurance, Conners can tell you how much his temperatures changed when he went from 3.60 to 3.80GHz.

    hey thanx for reply Jim! Ya I also raised vcore one notch to 1.25625v as well as the pll to 1.57v, both at the same time, I was just mainly concerned of the cpu temp which hit about 76c at the time but my core temp was good at 66c highest.

    Here is a screenie of my latest test with my new "standard" that I will be using all the time, which is having auto threads and using the exact same 3072mb of ram under custom mode, and I am quite pleased! Oh and yes I do have TM2 enabled just incase.

    thanx again for feedback
