    Phenom 9950 and Phenom II Overclocking Thread

    Hello,

    I want to create this thread to post a few results of my overclocking experience with my 9950. Please feel free to post yours up :toast:

    Here is a guide that I came across along with one that TRT740 came across. Both are great and will greatly help you overclocking the AMD Phenom Line up.

    CP in your first post you posted the same pic for 3.15 and 3.4GHz :D

    P.S. Can you measure power consumption in some way? I'm interested in power figures also...

    9950 Testing at 2.6 GHz NB @ 2000 MHz

    Ok, I just ran super PI, 3dmark (cpu tests only), and CineBench at default clocks.

    Use CPU-z to see CPU clocks and HT speed, mem test for timings and NB speed in the top right hand corner

    9950 Testing at 2.6 GHz NB @ 2200 MHz

    Now I upped the NB Multiplier from x10 to x11, NB is now at 2200 MHz.

    I forgot to run CineBench with the NB at default. So I ran it at x11 and then from now on we just compare with the rest.

    Ok, now what the H*** are you using to get great temps like that? I NEED TO KNOW!

    Is that air cooling? What is your ambient temps?

    I am looking for something to replace stock cooling and I have spent like 4 days straight searching.

    So far what I have come up with is something below:

    Either a Thermalright 120 Black and a Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F fan + Rheobus fan controller

    OR

    Sunbeam Contact Freezer stock, or use the Scythe S-Flex + Rheobus fan controller too.

    If not a Scyhthe fan, maybe something with better air flow and static pressure.

    Please help me out with this dilemma!

    If you can, mucho appriceation!

    Hi there goitalone. I have a thermaltake pump, reservoir, and CPU block. Koolance 2 fan radiator and koolance coolant. IF you look at my avatar my rig is outside of a case. Ambient temps are about 65-70ºF

    ok some info I have gathered. So far by only upping the NB from stock 2.0 GHz to 2.4 GHz we saw almost 1/2 sec. drop in super PI, about a 27 point increase in 3dmark 06 cpu score, which when running the whole test would actually give you a bigger difference with the CPU feeding more to the video card (s).

    In Cinebench, I didn't run it at a 2.0 GHz NB speed, however from a 2.2 GHz to a 2.4 GHz NB speed it increased 2291 points in the multiple CPU test, and 510 in the single CPU test. Last but not least, 52 points in the open GL benchmark.

    I am on water, thermal take CPU water block with pump and koolance radiator.

    Idles at around low 20's, sometimes 19ºc. Further up is a screenshot.
