    just thought about trying to overclock with more voltage see what happens.. and im getting the following temps

    CPU = 42-45'c
    PWMIC = 43-44'c
    Chipset = 47'c

    are these temps too low?

    Are you running two instances of Prime?

    I use THIS >> http://sp2004.fre3.com/

    To test my cpu, from what i gather its a modified version of Prime 95, and you can select how many CPU's you need to stress at the same time :)

    The DFI UT boards undereport CPU temperature, usually by around 10C.. so I would say your CPU is closer to 55C.

    My 4400+ is at 52C so you should be fine with your temps :)

    I ran mine "overnight" - which was about 18 hours in reality [I didn't sleep for that long, was just how long since i started the test :p]

    Just run it for a straight 24 hours. You can still do other stuff with your PC such as browse, email, music etc.

    If it passes 24 hours then it is a good bet you have a stable overclock. The best test you could probably do is a DC project running long term.

    I have been running [email protected] 24/7 since my overclock several weeks ago... no errors yet :D

    [email protected] is pretty much the most evil of all stress tests to put a CPU through. If you have no issues in a weeks worth of folding I would say you have a stable rig :D

    Good luck!

    right so should i just go back to [email protected] if that stress tests it. its done 12 hours of prime no problem so i can post that as a stable overclock?

    Ive seen people post 8 hour prime tests as stable lol.

    You could run Prime95 all day every day for days on end, but that wouldn't achieve anything. At least running [email protected] you're getting something done :)

    If you have a problem, lower your OC/up voltage/whatever and try again.

    You will know if you have a problem with [email protected] you get EUE errors [Early Unit End - i think] either way your stats will be weird too... you might have say 5 WUs credited but only got 20 points from them.
