Before I start getting into the results I will have to tell you that I could
have gotten into windows, taken screenshots and tried to tell you I got my
system here kind of thing but I am only telling you what is TRULY stable. This
means running folding AND being used by me 12 hours a day. I also left it at
that speed overnight to bring total error free up time to 24 hours. The folding
program keeps the CPU at 100%. If you'd like more info on this project read
Also CPU-z reports the wrong CPU voltage on my Epox 8RDA. All temp readings
are after being at 100% load for about an hour.
400 watt generic power supply
2*512Mb Mushkin PC3200 2-2-2 (BH6)
Notes about heat production:
Overclocked Watts = Default Watts * (Overclocked Mhz \ Default Mhz) * (Overclocked
Vcore \ Default Vcore)?
The first thing I wanted to check out was what I could do with the default
voltage. Default voltage on these mobile chips are 1.45v
2.2Ghz crashed after about 20 minutes of use while backing the FSB down just
a single Mhz provided the stability I was seeking. It's really not a bad thing
to get a 10% overclock at default voltages. Considering this speed keeps the
heat production so low this is probably the speed I'll leave it at.
This is the same speed the 3200+ ships at while running at a much lower
voltage and costing $80 less. How's that for a cheap retail heatsink? 44C while
maintain low noise.
