    cdawall, I had done the same thing with the factory cooler on my PHenom II, took the factory gay fan, and put a high flow 120mm on top :laugh: hey it cooled pretty good.

    Yeah, that is definitely impressive....I'd try upping my volts past 1.5 but I'm too chicken right now...maybe once I get the money for my PII 940!!

    Last night (it was around 1-4 am) I got my system cooler than on the first time. I put a "demolished" cardboard box on top of my rig to control the air flow and avoid the warm air circulation. This time I tried to go as high as 1.7 Vcore but didnt get that 3.9 :D I was tired too...

    @Full, as high as 1.5 Vcore and over, the blacbox showed nothing, it doesn't show anything below 0... So... Don't know about BS, I put a thermometer to measure the incoming air temp, the lowest was -13,3C. After I quit benching, I checked the outside thermometer and the outside temp was lower than -20. The cheap wireless weather station doesn't show anything under -20 :rolleyes:

    GBT can't change the CPU VID, so in theory the board could do some over crazy volts.

    [​IMG]

    So 9950 has normal Vcore 1.25V +0.60V = 1.85V
    AOD shows 1.25V, setting it to 1.45V = +0.20V = 2.05V
    And if AOD registry tweak can be done, then maximum in AOD is 1.50V
    2.05V +0.05V = 2.10V

    With PhII 940 which has 1.30V... it would be 2.15V

    I don't now if its possible but it sure looks like it.

    good job king jay. Tried any higher, or had any luck making it stable at 3.4 GHz?

    tried 3.5 but that takes too much voltage, forces me to go up in the 1.53v region and up and that's too much volts fa me on air.

    when I had my board on a custom bench table I had going, I also placed a 120mm where the factory slow fan would go. Temps were pretty good!

    hey David, whats your best oc on the 940?
    and whats your highest 24/7 clock
    i hit 4.2GHz but she took a shit during the Validation and cant get it stable since the weekend :mad:
    i find this chip don't like volts any higher than 1.47v
