    GAMERS overclock intel STABILTY comp!!ALL enter plz!

    hello,
    i have seen MANY amazing 9sec runs etc.but i wanna start a thread for heavily overclocked pcs that are STABLE using OCCT 60min challenge for ppl here at x\s with there conroe\kentsfield 24\7 stable overclocks for real world apps such as gaming,burning,etc.this will include any kind of cooling EXCEPT ln2 or dice(being there not 24\7 walk away cooling).ppl who can post include amazing air,water(chilled,plain)and phase ONLY plz.and before ppl ask why not dice\ln2,its because its NOT 24\7 stable.this is for the fastest REAL WORLD cpu usage rather than a quickie 9sec benchmarking screenies and thats it.while some ppl are riled up over 9 seconds of glory then not stable after that tube is empty,others in the extreme overclocking world belive it or not wanna see REAL WORLD stabilty for gaming,burning,encoding,office apps or quite frankly day to day use period.

    i am NOT a benchmarker but im still a overclocker\hardcore gamer NEEDING performance from overclocking.my pc is useless if it runs 9sec in pi then cant run 8hrs of hardcore gaming sessions after that.i would never put a overclock in my sig if it was not 24\7(kinda misleading to myself).

    ANYONE,any country wanna enter this FRIENDLY competion plz enter using ANY intel kentsfield\conroe cpu.this little competion gives me and my friends a real database to finally go by who want to grab new hardware and can actually run the stuff 24\7 for different normal day to day tasks at crazy speeds.again this is a STABILTY database only,Not a benchmark database(we have plenty of those around here).benchmark databases are all good and well but not for the average to lil above overclocker who needs there single pc everyday for many things besides quick numbers for others to look at.this is hopefully going to help others pick and choose there hardware when buying cpu\ram and cooling setups.i really enjoyed the 24\7 4 gig thread in here awhile back(most were on phase)but it was amazing to read and see the results.i hope the same ppl post here again.


    1 rule only:
    run air(any kind),water(any kind),phase(any kind) ONLY plz.

    get occt test below-this test is VERY brutal and if u have a hairy o\c i would not try this test
    http://www.ocbase.com/


    60 minutes of your time,thats it!!screenies plz AFTER its completed including
    2 x cpuz + core temp in 1 shot.

    OCCT test Option test level set to HI---cpu or cpu+ram 60 min minumum.

    i will start off with my 24\7 gaming setup with regular old water on a e6600.
    i run 10 gigs of ddr2 ram but mainly use 4 gigs gskill 6400hz or my ocz sli 2 gig sli kit.

    half life2<--demanding
    enemy terrotory quake wars mp demo <-very demanding
    quake3 rocket arena
    quake4 <-demanding on ultra hi setting

    by ppl posting here this is helping me buy my new gaming cpu chip with a SOLID decesion.im thinking q6600 i just wanna see more STABLE q6600 clocks plz.
    thank you for all who post.plz no bashing,lets keep it friendly

    thank you for all who post.plz no bashing

    finally someone not affraid to want realworld stab, not 1 min runs or less. i have nothing against the guys that just run suicide runs, but come on!!!!!!!! what good is spendin $ if u cant use it all day long? again if that is ur thing cool.
    but im sick of readin i got this or i got that with settings that are impossible (3.6 @ 1.3500 vlts, 3.7 @ 1.4 to 1.45, or my fav 3.9 @ under 1.5 vlts) and i state are not hapening in the real world on air, a q6600 go is a great chip, i own 1. thats how i can say what i say
    now dodn't get me wrong with the proper cooling, and i mean prop not air or even good water. i mean some kind of extreme cooling is needed to run those crazzy low volts that people are postin 4 the go stp 6600

    i'll be back with some real world volts and temps on water. plain old room tmp water

    to correct one thing that i typed when i said i got this or that . 3.6 on air with 1.3 volts or all the inbetweenfrom 1.3 to under 1.4250 is impossible to get it to run prime ,occt, or even 3d mrk tests will fail with such low volts on air, again will fail.
    you need a min of 1.45 & up to start stabilizing 3.6 otherwise u are kiddin urself to even try to say u are stable, not goin to happen. if u say otherwise i have to agree with the guy who stared the thread, post some pics with prime, occt

    please post screenies of that q6600(chip i want!)running fast and STABLE..
    q6600 at nice speeds should push my 8800gtx nicely in crysis thats quad core optimized. lets not forget ut2007,enemy terrotory quake wars,cod4,and many other cpu dependent games are out in 1 month.are u 3.6ghz stable?if so sounds purfect for me.ty very much.

    im not shocked alot of ppl are not posting back here with solid screenies for me(alot of strictly benchers here seems like).i am glad to see &#37;94 of ppl who voted wanted speed and stabilty,was starting to think only 9 sec runs were what ppl cared about vs speed and stability.i mean some ppl actually use there computers for things besides pumping out some quick numbers in tests.im looking into phase cause its maitence free(for the most part) and AMAZING clocks that can be 24\7 stable when gaming etc.

    cant take looking at max unstable screenies in sigs seriuos when buying a new cpu chip with ppl running ln2,dice etc(not realistic).anybody can get high clocks for a few seconds,some faster then others going to extremes.but not to many can get fast and stable setups still being able to use the thing without it melting.the best thread i EVER seen in my life was here(cant find it)was 4 ghz stable phased rigs.

    My E6400 runs at 3.6GHz very stable but it and my motherboard generate far too much heat for me to feel comfortable with it (literally, it makes my room too hot) at this setting 24/7.

    I could run water cooling although the extra heat would still need to be removed. Not to mention the difference between 3.6 and 3.2 is only perceptible in benchmarks and I use my computer for a lot more than just benchmarks.

    And so I run at 3.2GHz stable nice and cool 24/7.

    E6300@3500 with only 1.35v


    stability counts much more than speed for me.
    well, in fact a stable system is always faster than an unstable one

    wow what cooling,simply amazing for a 24\7 overclock on a 6300

    @karateo
    "stability counts much more than speed for me.

    ya speed for a few seconds is worthless if im flying a jet doing mach2 bombing ppl and my pc shuts off,lol agree


    @craker
    "Not to mention the difference between 3.6 and 3.2 is only perceptible in benchmarks and I use my computer for a lot more than just benchmarks."


    ya me too... but alot of ppl just try and get super low pi numbers
    i use my pc for multiple things as well and it MUST be fast and STABLE.
    agree &#37;110

    i like low temps hi clocks too
    http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j1...ent36temps.jpg

    anyone have the link to the 4ghz stable conroe rig thread here at x\s?cant find it..

    its so hard to find a thread(hopefully here)when new cpus come out and ppl can relate to them speed wise without going for mindblistering speeds for a few seconds by pouring ln2\dice on em.that dont help mainstream clockers see what they can run 24\7 on em if there in the market,only shows insane celing height for a few seconds.were some ppl actually use there pcs for other stuff besides impessive quickie numbers for others to gaze it.i cant make relaistic buying decesions off that..there is such a thing as Extreme Stable overclocks.

    i would like to thank hersounds and karateo for giving me 60 min of there time and posting the 1 screenie i wanted.i am deeply disappointed in the lack of screenies i thought i would have recieved from others who viewed,voted and read this thread.i now see that super pi times and other quick benchmarks are the standerd of the overclocking world .mabye others would have liked to post but did not want to voice there opinions on this subject with there peers watching.regardless of screenies or lack of i see that the real world overlocks are only backed by some words and some quiet voiceless votes.

    it really doesnt matter to me at this point,i reached out and tried to grasp some of the solid facts of the overclocks i see in ppl,s sigs everyday only to see nothing except there max o\c screenie.i thought this thread could have been much more for others to come in and look at rock solid extreme pcs so when buying decesions came with cpu chips\ram\and cooling this could have been a real baseline.but i must face the facts what ppl favor is extreme everyday pcs running ln2\dice pcs vs 24\7 solid overclocks.see in my day of overclocking a p\c that was considerd extreme for some was stable and fast for all apps without the hint of instability.but i see in this day and age its all about how fast it runs in a TINY benchmark. while turning that same 9sec pc down to lower speeds for other apps to run without failing behind closed doors.tthis thread was a failure,i thought more ppl would speak up and say there mind on stabilty and games\apps.but no...who can run spi faster then the next guy is the form of stabilty and competetion,sorry but that does not help nor impress me anymore being everyone seems to be simply grabbing a pot and screaming voltage to a chip for a few seconds of glory....9 seconds are cool but does nothing for me being i only have 1 pc and cant afford something frying on a quickie test.i need my pc and wanted a few real world baselines.i thought the mainiacs would step up to the plate and gimmie something to look at besides quickie max o\c screenies....guess not.

    and btw 3dmarks are not GAMES,there benchmarks.

    thanks anyway all..........from the poll i see &#37;89.29 of ppl agree with me,i guess thats good enough

    times have changed immensely in the theory of mainstream overclockers. screw stabilty just grab a cpu chip,a pot and your a hero.

    Great Idea for a thread! I really want t see some insane stable OC's! IE 4.5ghz for an hour OCCT would be SWEET.

    I have just put together a new Quad using an Abit Quad GT. I run for 24/7 at 333*9. Perfect FSB, memory divider, and keeps my heat very low. This new rig already heats up my room quite a bit. Stabilty over speed any day. A 3.0GHZ Quad is plenty for me

    yes!...screenies plz ppl
    foget the max o\c screenshots,ANYONE with a tube and 10ten seconds can show that.what good is that if its gonna melt booting into windows and cant be used for anything ?..scr33nies!!

    its only 60min of your time ppl.i thought more ppl were extreme here? screenies 60min occt hi priortory test plz! max overclocks in sigs mean nothing to me, anyone can get those...



    a ford escort can run the quarter mile in 13.5 seconds with nitrous then slowly blow up after a few runs.

    a ford mustang cobra can run 13.5 slightly modified and run great all around town...

    there junk ...good for nothing except impressing a bunch of dudes across the world for who knows what reason(hey im bored,look at me and this!?!?).i have a smoking hot g\f and even tho i like u guys im not going to waste time pushing numbers to impress any dudes,pointless.i read about hardware here and learn from ppl who overclock running stable rigs.wether or not there 24\7 on phase at 4.0ghz+ or 3.8 on water,there stable and there relaistic for 24\7 use.not into sending my expensive pc parts into the graveyard to impres others,laff..why would i?if i had a sponser and endless hours to stare at a screen for some unstable number screenies being paid for it...mabye yes then.

    that same o\c your talking about is worthless,because your admitting its so unstable it cant run anything except a quickie 30 second of glory benchmark(for what?).
    to many ppl grab tubes these days and are overnight heros hoping to be respected by others with a combustable pc .the 9.8 sec in pi is NOT going to help my overlock in ANY means except that i know what max voltage is and would never EVER use 24\7 while my heavily overclocked pc is running games,apps,etc FLAWLESSLY..your setup would flat out crash\freeze\bsod...sounds like fun to me



    i used to like were there was only a hanfull of tubers to check out what they did all month for 30 seconds then close the thread,did nothing for me but funny to watch.now everybody and there mother wants to be in the spotlight.


    LOOK in the poll i started &#37;87.88 of ppl(your peers) agree speed and STABILTY are #1 dude.....numbers dont lie.argue with 58 other ppl who feel the same way i do period,%88!!.


    @ eldonko"Xtreme stability systems = zzzzzz!"

    ya..lemme pour some ln2 on my e66600 that runs flawlessly without a hitch only to ramp up the voltage and numbers and smoke something,will u sleep better then?


    *********CHALLENGE for eldonko******* your amazing pc and years of o\c should do above 3.6ghz 60min np.
    i wanna see your 24\7 screenie eldonko at 24\7 stable mines only at 3.6 stable im sure u can do better(beat mine),lets see...waiting....59minutes and counting.occt test dl link in post #1 for ya.

    lol, you're funny. my statement was purely to egg you on. i have to say, i agree with you... i'm not as hardcore about my opinion as you, but i do agree.

    I think the op has a valid point about stability being the most important factor in a overclock .If you are using it 24/7. however..... this IS Xtremesystems after all, and pushing the envelope is what it is about here. I can almost guarantee the biggest benchers here have vastly different settings for 24/7 than the "one time"runs or the 9 sec.s of pi.
    I can bench most 3-d benches @ 4600 but the heatload would be too much for my phase to keep up with for a long stability test. 4500 is "game stable" meaning with the exception of occt or orthos it never has any kind of stability issues. i use my pc constantly. the same rig i bench is the one i surf with it is fully cased 3 hard drives ,tv tuner ,printer , card reader, webcam...etc.

    Heres is your 4gb 3.6g test you wanted, its what I run 24/7 for months anyway so no big deal, enjoy.



    Takes minor knowledge or skill to run stability ocs, hence why we bench. If you have a better chip and know what you are doing, you have a better 24/7 oc, simple as that. At XS most people dont care what speed you play your games at. The real skill is in optimizing every piece of hardware at once, customizing the system for each bench, searching for the top clocking hardware and going through loads of it, voltage mods and figuring them out, running every different os to find that ms, etc.

    People take it seriously whether it to be to try for that WR or a personal best so I dont see how you can downplay extreme benching saying stability testing is the true skill. That's simply BS.

    Here is a challenge for you now. I ran this 1M, few tweaks, nothing serious and there are MUCH faster runs out there. Keep your clocks within 3610 and run one faster.

    I find the originator of this thread annoyingly ammusing.

    #1 - you come across as one of those 13 yr olds i used to play COD against, whose every word was 1337 speak BS.
    #2 - you seem to be insulting those of us who consider benching to be most important
    #3 - i dont appreciate being PM'd because of my response to a poll that didnt agree with yours. Anything you have to say on the topic could have been said here for all to see.

    g@m3r 4 l1f3! = 13 yr old gaymer

    Oh and with respect to your challenge, 3.6GHz is a walk in the park especially on water and C2D. But im sorry i dont want to waste hours of my time (yes, more than 1 because ill have to test many speeds) proving something that to me is pointless (i dont need a "stable" system)
