My personal overclock... p4 2.6 fsb800

If i tell you this, you're not gonna believe it. my cpu has been running with 2 fans atm, one is a simple thermaltake volcano 7+ that is extremely noisy, and is not the best.... it really SUCK... cpu was running around 47 c, then i just went back to the standard intel cooling fan, that was running the ocmputer at 48c degrees, and that was better, without the noise of course. then i changed to the vantec aerocool for intel p4.... and let me tell u.

cpu has been running for more than a month, computer not being restarted for any reason...

here are the specs

normal: p4 2.6ghz fsb800 512k 1.525v @ 32c idle 42c load

overclock: 3.25ghz fsb1000 1.5625v @ 33c idle 41c load (1 full day runnin prime95)

Strange? yes... don't ask me how or why.... i don't have that answer...

I've got a very nice SilenX/Swiftech combo on my CPU now (must change sig. It keeps my CPU at under 30deg all the time, although I am underclocking it at the mo.

Looking forward to getting my decent memory back from its RMA!

I guess Im getting old I just dont get over clocking. Why do it for such a pitiful return in most cases that is.

I run stock cooler however with my antec case I have a 120 mm fan in front and back and with the fan controller I have I can get it pretty cool inside. Have never had any kind of heat related issues and thats with a 6800 oven in it.

Well yeah good point, but also the chance you can fry you CPU if you don't know what you're doing/have bad cooling.
