I have a V8 GTS on the way!

Yeah it's a big one, I was able to get it to 4.2 Ghz with the auto-voltage on my motherboard, and I let prime95 run a bit longer than before, seems the second round of tests heat up the CPU a ton more, got to 77c going to see if I can do 4.3+ now'

 

(also norton warned me of high CPU usage by prime95 :) )

Be careful with auto-voltage. It usually sets the voltage way too high for the clocks it's trying to achieve, so the heat dump is going to be a lot worse. The voltage set by auto-voltage things are usually higher than I would ever set my voltages manually for a mild overclock

Yeah, I'll work with manual voltage in my next attempt at seeing what I can get.

 

Edit: also given that the topic seems to have drifted away from cooling to OCing, I'll Continue my OCing comments in another topic, don't want it to drift too far off it's original topic.
