Hi guys


about to oc my first i7 tonight.... I've only ever tinkered with c2d's before. What progs can people recommend to bench / test the system before and after.

I'd like to compare synthetic results before and after as well as test stability / temps. OS is win 7 7100build 64bit.

with just a tad bit of trepidation thanks in advance :)

I used LinX and IntelBurnTest to stress the processor and a Prim95 blend test to stress RAM and CPU when I had it running stable.

I also used 3DMark Vantage to test the system, and see what it was capable of.

It's pretty much the same as stressing/testing your Core2Duo.

had a read through, wasn't sure what people recommend / use themselves.

how does this sound

3dmark vantage - before & after
intel burn test - cook the processor up
prime95 - check stabilty of oc and ram

what should I be using to monitor temps?
