Ok, I've heard that burning in a processor will help it be more stable or what not. Is this true???
Also if I were to use the sisoft burn-in tool how long should I let the thing go to get a good burn-in??
yeah burning works, for me atleast. just leave your chip clocked at the highest possible fully stable, and put the voltage as high as you can,(within reason) and then leave for a couple of days or weeks, maybe months and then every once in a while try to put the chip higher.
cel 566@900, Kyro and SDRAM GOOD. P3 1.13gig, GTSultra 64meg/V5 6k and RDRAM BAD.
people that drive slow are easy to pass, it's people who drive fast that provide a challange.
Get THIS and set-it to run when you are not using the PC. It stress the CPU to higher temps than SETI for me, and it will also give the graphics a work out. Good stability indicator as It will desktop eventually if you are unstable. It is also a very pretty and realistic screensaver. (The deluxe 7 fish version is better)
when i first got this 566 it went 850 right away. stock voltage, but to get it to 918 had to set voltage to 1.90, wouldent go higher, couple of weaks later i tryed again.
this time it went to 944, this went on till i got to where i'm at now,
this has worked twice before for me.
a cel 366@566 and another 566@952(so far).
Hehe - I too can vouch for 'burning in'. My PIII450 (old news I know, but still...) would at first only run around the 540 mark. After running Prime95 constantly for 3/4 days I could post beyond 570 and stable. Only way to find out is to give it a try!!!
Wonder what happens when I flick this dip swi.....
All silicone-chips were created equal... except some which were more equal than others.
I don't know if burnin works but as far as i know it could because the cooling paste works better after it has gotten some heat. I know that the arctic silver had to get about a week with 100% cpu load before it made my life better
