Proficiently Tuned ??

Now that I have learned enough to be dangerous to my computer, I did find my rigs limits. It is stable clear up to 4888MHz. It peaked at 5235MHz. It does scream right along. But in 3-4 minutes, the all mighty thermals take over. My rig is not setup for that much cooling. I have came to a happy medium, where I am not maxing out my rig, and it runs cool.
These are screenshots of where I am at, using 3DMark Utilities. Totally happy with the entire setup, and now trying to make a profile of all my settings, from the bios, to the software.

Final Tuning

I think I have my computer tuned about as well as I can, with the hardware I have. I use 3DMark Demo, and 3DMark 11 for my testing numbers. I have ran 114 3DMark demo tests, and 127 3DMark 11 tests. I do a test after each hardware/software change. I am happy with the speed of my computer at this time. It clocks at 1150MHZ (1.5GHz) at a idle, but cranks up to 4845MHz (4.845GHz) when there is a heavy load applied. Pretty much all tweaks are done to the manufactures maximum specifications. It does not over heat, or give me a blue screen.

Nicely Tuned

Well, I think I have my computer tuned pretty well right now. I don't want to push the upper limits, because that is where break downs will occur. Here are my comfortable, stable test results, with the scores from 3DMark products. March 14, 2013

Fine Tuning

Here are the results of additional fine tuning my computer. First pic is what my current system.

This is the results of running the 3DMark Demo

These are the results of using 3DMark11, Entry, Performance, and Extreme.
