Default Prime-stable overclocking

I just want to share my experience of overclocking one of my latest computers. It is an ASUS P4P800S. I started the normal way of running the torture test overnight without errors.

Then I went to double-checks (DC's). The client doesn't detect all errors, so it's recommended to run a number of DC's and watch if they end up in lucas_v.txt (verified) of hrf3.txt (non-matching residue; either your test or the first one was bad (or both)).

Many people in these forums seem to think that around five DC's are enough, but my example below shows that the errors can occur quite irregularly. I will settle for 20 matching double-checks, but then I will still lower the FSB somewhat more just to be safe.

Below, I lowered the FSB by 1MHz whenever I got a non-matching result (triple-check needed). Note that I had 16 matching tests in April, but then I got a few bad ones.
Code:
C=     Cleared
Bad=   Verified bad
Triple=Triple-check needed
-=     Not in status files

BusMHz Exponent  Status   Returned

Northern hemisphere warming up? Keep your machine clean! Be conservative about overclocking: If looks good then drop the FSB to allow for temperature variations!
