    Benchmarks/Stability

    I just got my computer up and running and even though I can't afford replacement parts if I break anything, of course I wanna overclock it. I really don't think I need help on the process(yet) because I've read some and my brother knows some too. What I need is some programs that I can use to test stability/results. As I was writing this I found a thread with some info.

    I'm going to start with these programs. malfunction's post seems pretty extensive so maybe there won't be anything else. Any suggestions or ideas, don't hesitate to post. Looking forward to hearing all of your opinions!

    i personally think with today mobo and graphics technonogy you are more to break your cpu whilst changing a cooler / reapplying coolent paste than by overclocking it, i should kno it happened to me.

    also if you overclock your goodness to harshly your mobo should start without beeping or you should get a bluescreen on startup.

    Just run torture test on Prime95 and loops of 3dmark2001 for a few hours, if its still working fine after that its gonna be hard to crash I think.

    Yeah but I gotta be pretty careful cuz If I break anything I don't have the cash to fix it right now. I'm going to pick up a few more case fans today and then take a nap so I can be patient enough to do it slowly and not overdo it right of way. Thanks for the input!

    I really don't think you gonna break anything..once you installed the CPU properly there isn't much that can go wrong, thats from personal experience. Not sure what others might have accidently done. Overclocking wise...if you don't go stupid with the voltages you be fine.

    Best of luck with finding the sweet spot.
