    3700 SD OC'ing

    Guys,

    My San Diego will be here in the next couple of days. I was wondering when OC'ing what temp should i start to think twice at?

    What have you guys clocked yours to and what settings are you using?

    Cheers all

    Darren

    Temps up to 60C (or maybe even 70C) are safe but my overclock becomes unstable above 57C.

    Running at 2700Mhz, 1.5V on Vcore, temperature mid 50's under load.
    Runs at 2600 Mhz, 1.4V on Vcore temperature a couple of degrees lower.

    Going past 2700Mhz requires some serious voltage and starts to generate serious heat.

    All A64's can safely run 65C 24/7 but you should shoot for 60C or below. The 3700+ San Diego runs very cool so as long as you have decent air cooling and keep the core volts lower than 1.575 volts or so you should be fine at ambient 85F or lower.

    I run SETI on a 3700+ San Diego 24/7 at 2830MHz with a 59C full load temp with the room at 83F.

    Nice contribution to global warming...

    I must say from the reading I have done at DFI Street it seems to be that the 3700+s seem to do better at the 10x multi than 11x. Mine achieved more on a 10x than a 11x multi

    2750 here max

    I have a 3800+ Venice and all I can say is why the hell would you want to?

    Just raises your power bill and pumps more CO2 into the atmosphere when it can run absolutely any game maxed out.....


    At the end of the day benchmarks are for the very sad and bored people who need to show off about their PC's. If my PC can run any game maxed out then I am very happy, I will not need any upgrades or overclocking.

    can i just ask, what is the point of SETI, i know what it mean, i just can't see how its useful for anybody?

    Max temperature gets LOWER quickly with increases in voltage. At near 1.6v I would aim to be under 50c if I want the chip to last a year or two.. ofcourse only possible with lots of niose or watercooling..

    Theres no point. If power was free I might do one of the more usefull programs that use up idle time but as its just a waste of power and money etc.. I dont think many people bother with them..

    Overclocking has more point if you buy a lower spec cpu, and not one near the top..
    Your 3800+ shoud run at 2.4ghz? where as my much cheaper 3000+ runs at 2.5ghz... so why didnt you jut get a cheaper one and overclock it? its the same question as what you ask.
    As for heat output, mine might take a few watts more, but not noticable on the power bill.. and definatly not enough to make me worry about CO2 when the average american uses about 10x more power than me each day...

    Do you mean what is the value of running the program on a computer or what is the value of the project? See, the first question could possibly be an honest attempt to understand that which you do not. The second question is just self serving rhetoric in all likelihood.

    rick1967,

    Great post. Is that your own material or are you plagerizing a mentally challenged relative?

    I was actually geniunely interested in the point of SETI, i know what it stands for, but how can this be used on a computer for someones own use?

    Well, The point of SETI is that it would be pretty damn cool if we actually could find radio transmissions coming from extraterrestrial civilisations. I personally don't think there's a hope in hell of finding them so I don't run the project, but it's a personal choice at the end of the day and nobody here should be casting aspersions on those who do.

    Running Find-a-Drug has probably cost me tens, maybe even hundreds of pounds in electricity. When three of the molecules that my computers discovered were proven in a laboratory test to have anti-cancer properties, I didn't think it was a waste.
