    Is this the private Phenom II club Exeodus told me about ??? Can anyone join ?

    Currently running a 940BE@3.69Ghz ( 205 X 18 ) at 1.520v on an Asus M3A79-T Deluxe.

    My 9850BE@3.262Ghz (225 x 14.5 ) at 1.344v on an Asus M3A32-MVP was more of a challenge.

    so your patriot sticks are 1066 that will do 1150?
    i have a pair of ddr2-1200s that will not boot for the life of me. I have tried oem settings and tried to set the oc on them to 1200 before i changed them out....but still no boot...might have to sell them off to some intel dude....

    So your 4850x2 fan broke? How was it working out for you before it broke? What drivers were you using?

    Vdroop is the decrease between what you set your cpu voltage at in the bios, and what your actual voltage is, particularly under heavy load. This can have a significant negative impact on the stability of an OC.

    fyi
    for those who might be m/b shopping, the m4a79 dlx is on newegg........from the pics it looks like they changed some of the sata connectors, changed the n/b heat sink, changed the mosfet heat sink. the info on their website also says that they this board has "turbov" and "turbov".....

    I'm looking for some advice - got my Mk2 940 BE and am bit concerned that some one else may have had their hands on it before me - there was a dark mark on the surface of the chip, kinda looking like some one had put a cooler on without applying grease properly and also there is a machining/grinding mark round the side edges of the cpu. It also runs at 59 deg C when stress testing with Everest (stock cooler). These temps seem really high for a chip that was supposed to run a shed load cooler than the previous revision.
    So question is -is this a dodgy chip - should I RMA it or is this normal for these bad boys..?
    Thanks for you advice :)

    Where did you get the chip from? Was it unopened?


    Can I join, my specs are filled in, and I have been running F@H stable and gaming on my system with no issues.

    I got it from Ebuyer.com, the box was sealed still but it just seems like it's been finished really badly..
    Also getting 59deg core temps when running everest stress test at stock speed seems awfull high for this new 'cooler running' edition.. :(

    To be honest, mine had a dark spot too, caused by the coating on the IHS. But your temps are either quite high, or being misread. Can you run it and check the temps with a infared heat gun?

    Industrial supply shops should have them as well, probably at a better price if you need an B+M store. Best bet is to order online and wait a day or two.
