Thanks for updating the table agw. I've got it down to 43sec, but it's not Prime stable and I don't really want to give the chip more than 1.8v. Too many times I've broken stuff and thought "you just haaad to have that xxx more mhz didn't you". My vid card is the bottleneck now anyway so I need to save up for one of those tasty 6800 GT's (or maybe even an Ultra ).
Nice one, what is your CPU running at now? This 2500+ is a beauty. I'm running 2.3GHz @ 1.6v! My non-mobile chip couldn't even do it at 1.9v!
I can't say I've killed anything from overclcoking, but the little heatspreader on the rear side of my Radeon gets very hot, especially when it's clocked so high. I've got a heatsink here that I'm gonna try and bodge on later
Right now my chip is at 210x11 /w 1.75v. I only overclock for better game performance, and like I said, my 9500pro is the bottleneck now so maybe when I get a new card I'll try seeing the limits of this chip. If it can run through SuperPi at 2415mhz then it's on the verge of stability, but I got some random reboots so I backed down. Heck, what I'm running at now isn't necessarily Prime stable. It will pass forever if I keep the FFT size smaller than 512k (cache size), but fails in like 5 minutes or so if I do the blend test. It's never crashed, and like the saying goes "you don't play Prime", so I don't really care.
Some people's standards for "good" and "acceptable" are different than anothers. We wouldn't be computer freaks if we weren't constantly trying to attain the fastest scores possible with the hardware we have. With that said, perhaps we should be grateful that we do have computers which "do all the tasks we need them to do at a speed that is acceptable to us."
