Looks pretty normal for that particular C3 chip.

It all depends. The later steppings on 955's got higher but the early ones did not. if you have an older one, that is a good overclock however; you have more headroom. you can take Phenoms to high 50's with no worries and voltage up to 1.55 volts. 1.55 volts will probably be too much for your cooling but try 1.5 or 1.525 volts and raise your CPU/NB to 1.3-1.35volts.

54C at full load with 1.48v means the chip is going to stop clocking on temps alone regardless of stepping. The voltage is why I am pegging it at as a C3 chip C2 chips needed quite a bit more to get stable at 4ghz. There is not stepping past C3 so it is a good guess on that chip. Until load temps are brought down to 40-50C MAX you will not be seeing 4.2-4.3ghz like you do with the later model Thuban chips.

Phenoms can esily go to upper 50's for load temps and easily handle up to 1.55 volts. I have overclocked them to 4.5GHz and if it is a C3, I have seen others hit 4.5GHz. He has a little headroom left.....not much..

They can and I am sure he can post a screen shot at 4.5ghz, however it will not be stable until temps come down C3 chips scale with temps more than they will scale with voltage. Even C1 pre-release chips can post and run 4200ish easily enough with enough voltage, but the temperatures is what releases them.

I disagree. I have overclocked many phenoms. Upper 50's will be fine.

As do I seeing how I strongly doubt you have done as much research using multiple phenom II's I strongly strongly doubt anyone else will have a different conclusion. >55C load temps yield negligible performance gains regardless of voltage on C3 chips.

Been overclocking them since Phenom I days. I review processors and max temps on phenoms are 62 degrees. Whomever came up with the 55 degree delio, i do not know. There is no "Magic" tempurature that is for the entire Phenom II's series. The Phenoms overclock as well as the cooling is and I have taken dozens of chips up to 60 degrees and up to 1.6 volts.

i overclocked my phenom 955BE with ASRock 990fx extreme3/4 could reach 4.1ghz at 1.4125v, but unfortunately my cpu reached 60-64 *C full load (using occt and prime), while idle temps was 36 - 38 *C, using thermaltake frio non ock heat sink fan. ambient room temps was 27 - 30 *C

Been overclocking since the Athlon XP days mostly on AMD. I have had phenom 1's over 3.5 and phenom II's over 5.

Yes you can take all chips Athlon 64 and up all the to 62C, but at that point you end up brute clocking chips purely on voltage. 1.6-1.7v just to get that extra 100mhz when at the same 1.55v the chips often scale to 4.5+ when the temps are below zero. Those are negligible clocks to me. The chips scale heavily with temps and anyone that has clocked them heavily like I did can tell you that.

I maxed a 980 at 4.7GHz(suicide)
I have run 3mark at 4.7...

i think you will be able to get 2.8Ghz from CPU NB.
NB frequency/performance increase is really noticeable.

1.55 volts is not overly extreme for Phenom II's. Are you familiar with Tcase temps? Good water cooling keeps phenoms well below 55.... You don't need subzero.

Yes I know I ran my 945BE ES chip at 1.65v 4ghz for the entire period of time I owned it. I also know of Tcase temps...

I think you would be able to reach a higher NB freq.
I am currently running at

I would go for a higher overclock on processor fiirst. You will get more performance that way then go for NB..... You have some headroom...later

it's normal, but i'm interested on your cpu temps

what is your ambient room temperatures? and what processor cooler/hsf did you use?

212 coolermaster and my room its like 23-28


after hours of game.. bso dammit :banghead: i think its my nb voltage ( 1.1 ) because i have 2600 mb cpu
i will test



edit..

4ghz # 41.8 FPS # 42.1 FPS

I would go for a higher overclock on processor fiirst. You will get more performance that way then go for NB..... You have some headroom...later
Not at all. Increasing the NB increases the memory bandwidth to a huge extent. So both the CPU clock and NB are important.
I kept a balance in all. 3.9 GHz at stock cooling is more than enough with 2.8 GHz NB and 1.73 GHz RAM.
You are saying like that the memory bandwidth in a GPU is less important than the GPU shaders and clock-- NO. Both are equally important. A Phenom II 955 overclocked from 3.2 to 3.7 GHz with no NB OC will show hardly or no improvements in games or stressful work.
