    Burning in the CPU

    If its not succesful will this shorten the life of the chip? I looped quake2 demos for over a weak and so far its not helping my 366 hit 550, its a weak 8.

    Peace out, TripleV http://home.earthlink.net/tecknics12/index2.htm

    TripleV,

    You must understand that "burning in" does not necessarily mean that you will be able to increase your cpus potential to overclock. It's just a method of reaching the highest overclocked level that your processor can already attain and stabiliziing it from then on.

    Besides, a week 8 366Cel has a slim chance of hitting 550. Look for a week 22 or later.
