    The Official Overclocking Thread is useful for discussion but I find the thread grows too large too quickly to find overclocks quickly and easily so this thread is for people to only post their overclocks. I'll compile a table within the first post that should be updated every few days.

    Required information to post:

    1. CPU Model
    2. CPU Vcore
    3. CPU Stepping
    4. Multiplier and FSB used
    5. Clock Speed
    6. Motherboard
    7. Motherboard BIOS version
    8. RAM
    9. RAM Timings
    10. RAM Ratio/ Divider
    11. RAM Voltage
    12. Method of Cooling
    13. Screenshot of stability testing

    I think this list is enough but by no means exhaustive, feel free to add further settings.

    Up to date as of [17 October 2006, 22:54]

    Stepping Servo? Should be labelled FPO/BATCH # L6xxAxxx on the side of your box.

    No worries, didn't realise it was an OEM. Thanks anyway :)

    I'm sorry mate, it was OEM, and I don't have the numbers :(

    I did try and get them, but my old eye's couldn't make them out :p

    I'm interested in your Prime result, is it stable for long hours at such low voltage? Please report back. Anything under 1.425v mine failed after just a few minutes. :mad:

    Cheers.

    can we have it with cpu speed first?

    makes it easier to analyse data. ;)

    After a bit more testing I've upped the vcore to 1.3875 and am using the 0801 BIOS. I'm sure it'll run at a lower vcore than this but just needs tweaking, under 1.4v though :)

    Orthos 12 hours stable

    12 hour Orthos stable at this modest o/c but takes 1.45v to get past 3.3mhz, temps are no problem - <50c load coretemp/everest at 1.45v but I don't like the high volts :p

    Just a suggestion, it may be helpful if the table shows the RAM speed or divider .
