    Guys I'm curious ... Do you use Ganged or Unganged mode for your RAM? I've been using Ganged since I got this CPU, and when I last tested I found no benefit to using Unganged.

    Any thoughts?

    Best to use unganged, no performance hit and provides better bclk overclocking.

    I'm finally stable at 3.8ghz :) With the window open I'm idling at 30C full loading at 55C prime 95 has been running for 20 mins I'd call that stable

    Clocking up the 1100T under teh FX watercooler. 4.0 GHz, 1.55v 2800 NB @ 1.3v in BIOS sees 261W pulled from the 8-pin, and 373W @ the wall for the rig (monitor not included :p ).:eek:

    Using HD5450 VGA, and Gskill 2133 MHz 9-11-9-28 4GB kit seen in my recent AMD reviews.

    I said I had a dog CPU...when i was telling people Phenom II can pull 300W easy, and they scoffed, they didn't understand. :p


    :roll:

    the board won't boot with more than 1.575v, that'll get 4.2 GHz only(*droops to 1.565v real via DMM)

    Yeah, not the best OC'er, but really useful to push board VRMs. I did bin quite a few chips to get this one, and was binning for the worst CPU possible, too, remember.


    It's kinda like my 3960X, that pulls 130W++ @ stock.

    I've always kinda felt that 1090T was the better chip, especially the earlier 1090T's.

    What's more funny is that 4.0 won't even boot on air.:roll:

    So it seems playing BBC2+recording with fraps+ playing music crashes my pc more than prime 95 :laugh: I've been bumping up my Vcore every crash and I'm at 1.37V right now and I'm not going any higher.

    EDIT: It crashed again so Im at 1.38 :c I atleast have the window open so it's at a decent temp :) woo Canada!

    Kevin you may need closer to 1.4v

    Prime95; were you doing small or large ft?

    Hey guys

    Got my 960T up to 3.4 (3.6 Turbo) @ 1.3v, NB 2400

    I'm happy with the OC for now :toast:

    How low do you think I can go with the CPU voltage before I start having trouble?

    @Kevin

    I don't get home for another 2 hesitate. It will be a while before I can get you a copy

    @Norton

    Don't bother.

    @Norton: Thats amazing you can OC at all with such low volts. If you wanna OC more though you'll need more voltage.

    @Kevinheraiz: Yes, give the volts a hug and a juicy kiss; as long as your spit doesn't short anything

    Also, Linx is in TPU downloads.

    Why? no benefit on undervolting or too small of an OC to be concerned about it :confused:

    *Note- at Auto setting on my M5A99X the voltage was running too 1.5+ at stock clocks... is this normal for an ASUS board :wtf:

    *** EDIT- @ Irony- been backing it down gradually from 1.4v or so- been stable at every drop ***
