Ace's Hardware heeft een artikel met wat tips voor overklokkers. Ok, hier kennen we er al 10.000 van, maar misschien toch handig.
Hier wat stuff over het in burnen van een CPU (schijnt te kunen helpen):
After all this talk about cooling, let us talk about a hotter subject: "burning in". I never tested this, but some people claim that if you put your overclocked under a heavy load continuously and for a long period (>12 hours) , you might be able to lower the used CPU-core voltage.
This would be helpful, if you can only get your overclocked CPU stable when your case is open and you have to use 10 howling fans. You burn in the CPU, lower the voltage after the process and be able to close your case (less voltage, less heat), lower the number of fans at the same overclocked CPU.
A good program to test the stability of your overclocked CPU and hence also a good one to "burn in" is Prime 95.
Prime95 which uses the memory bus, FPU and processor intensively. There is a "torture test" which will run a continous loop of self tests. If your overclocked CPU can run Prime 95 for several hours you can consider your system stable (Editor's Note: Distributed.Net's RC5 client is also an excellent program for this process).
