Started this at overclockers.com but I wanted to see what interests people over here at TPU.

Self Explanatory, list your favorite overclock on your favorite CPU. Tell us about some of the interesting quirks or features if you wish. Has to be a CPU that you've owned, not a wish list item. For me, it's definitely the AMD Phenom II 970 BE Zosma (hence my avatar), which unlocked to a hexacore that runs stock at 3.5Ghz.
With the noble Hyper 212 I was able to push it to a stable 4.0Ghz across all six cores, and for that I will be eternally grateful.


Here is an under hood shot of the thuban die:

My first Core2Duo that @tigger helped me with when I was newer here at TPU. My P4 630 build was fun as well...but the Core2Duo e6300 with Asus P5B Deluxe and G.Skill DDR2-800 was a wild ride. Maintaining 500+ FSB so that I could achieve an almost 100% OC. Went from 1.86GHz to 3.4GHz fwir. It's been a long time...but I spent a long time tweaking and tuning and fighting for every FSB MHz I could eek out.

My Core2Quad Q9650 build (still alive BTW) was fun as well... I did settle on a simple 400FSB @ 3.6GHz OC when I sold it since it was so easy to get there and maintain at stock or just below stock voltages.

My 4790K @ 4.8GHz was my most fun recent (in the past 5-6 years) build to OC, because there were so many more variables to adjust. At the end I was able to undervolt at stock clocks, and push 4.8GHz turbo at 1.26v. That way idle was cooler and using less voltage, my IVR voltage was able to maintain 1.7V without needing to be raised, and while I didn't need to delid...but I ended up doing so a few years into using it. The Noctua U14S kept the CPU well away from thermal throttle (100C), but how these CPU's were designed even hitting thermal throttle for extended periods wasn't a big deal..out of the dozens of Haswell CPU-based builds I was involved in, none of them failed because of that. Mostly there were storage, PSU or RAM failures.

Even though that was really only a 400MHz OC from the stock 4400 turbo, it was a lot of work to get that tuned...then add in adaptive voltage (set base voltage for 800-4000MHz operation, and then turbo boost for turbo clock operation. So I'd undervolt, and then compensate for that to provide a total of 1.26v at boosted clocks, it worked so well.). I also was able to cut power consumption down a bit by setting min/max cache clocks to 800/4000. Going higher didn't show any performance gains in what I used my system for (virtualization, work, gaming, multitasking, light encoding).

Another fun OC was my Nvidia GTX260, I was able to do custom BIOS profiles for fan speed and clock speed. Was a lot of fun to mess around with this card, I bet I flashed it almost 100 times testing different configs, fields I probably should've left alone, etc.

Last but not least, who can forget the turbo buttons on the 3/486's of yore... Going from 8MHz to 33MHz like that made playing Doom and X-Wing much nicer. :D

Q9650 is high on my list as well. I still have that rig in operation. Running a DDR3 Asus P5Q3 mainboard and ThermalRight Ultra 120 Extreme I was able to go 4.3Ghz in daily driver mode and 4.5Ghz for short bench sessions. 475Mhz FSB IIRC. Was a beast back in the day!

Nice! I actually am doing some routine maintenance on my old Q9650 build for the guy that bought it from the guy I sold it to (lol). Due to the BIOS randomly resetting on the P5Q Deluxe (DDR2, G.Skill DDR2 1066), I'm gonna push him into a budget-oriented Ryzen build and might angle to get the old CPU, Mobo and RAM back. If I do get it back, I'll be seeing what it can do after all these years. This system is still in the CoolerMaster HAF932 I bought brand new back in 2008 too lol! :D

For me it has to be the E4300 under a TRUE. Pushing a $150 CPU to the point that it beat pretty much everything on the market at the time was really fun.

I had a Socket 478 Pentium4 chip that reached 4163Mhz. That was quite fun. But probably the most fun one was the near 100% overclock on an E2160 I picked up at some point. LGA775 was when I was overclocking a lot. Life got much busier later on, and I no longer dabble in this. Heck, I haven't had a desktop in years.

Thank you. I remember them times fondly, there was quite a few of us at the time all enjoying OC'ing our C2D CPU's

Heres my favourite from my sig-



It was a golden chip-E6300, that I never found the limit, as my cooling was not good enough. A golden Asus P5B-deluxe, that did 560 FSB easily, and could have done more had my cooler been better, and the very good Patriot ram, that did 1200 mhz from 700 1:1 with the fsb

If you do get it back in time be sure to check out the Core 2 comp that is in the works here at TPU! I think we'll get that started in the next couple weeks or so. But in regards to LGA 775 fun, another favorite would be the LGA 771 to 775 conversion. I did this with a Xeon X5470 a couple years back... that 10x multi was to die for! Mainboard at the time was an MSI P43-C51 and cooled by another Hyper 212. Gotta watch out though, Harpertown gets toasty above 4.0Ghz!

On The Highway To Hell \m/
CPU: Mobile Athlon 64 4000+ "Newark" @ 3.124Ghz
Cooler: Thermaltake K8 Silent Boost
Motherboard: ASRock K8Upgrade-NF3

Finally got it above 3GHz during a wind storm in the middle of winter with all the windows in the room open. Which was pretty damn good for that little air cooler and that motherboard. Hell...it was pretty damn good for that CPU on air period. I'd be in 7th place overall(2nd best on air) on HWBOT if I still had it and could replicate that OC. IIRC it took a bit more than 2.0 Vcore to get there(mobo was volt modded to achieve that).

Seems kinda pathetic in retrospect. But it was a real kick in the pants at the time. :)

I took a pair of ES 1.4ghz Tualatin P3s to 1.75 stable. They were monsters at the time, even a single would eat a 2ghz P4 alive :)

All it took was custom water blocks, a massive eheim pump and a true automotive radiator (I want to say 80s CRX, was a tiny Honda) strapped to the side of the tower.

Sadly, it also earned me my username. I returned home one day to find some crispy silicon and a puddle :-(

Benchmark Scores I only game on this system... built for silence, not absolute max performance. ;)
LN2 on all of my chips in the past. Nothing beats the thrill of it.

Just shy of 8.1GHz on an FX8350.
Second fastest i7 920 D0 in the world on wPrime (could do more, was limited by the current config of the SATA ports!)
118% OC on my E2140 as a daily driver.
The worlds fastest G3258 and at the time, number one R15 CPU. No longer have it as I sold it for three times what I paid, and deleted my account since. Damn!

Its not many CPU´s i have overclock so far as X58 is the first platform i own that also had motherboards that cut overclock. So my oc list is only I7 920 DO revision and my current I7 980X. But i sure as hell has had a lot of fun overclock these two chips. Both is done on air cooling and i got I7 920 up to 4.4 GHz on all cores (stock turbo all core is only 2.8 GHz) and I7 980X up to 4.7 Ghz to 4.75 GHz (Stock is 3.46 GHz all core turbo) on all cores benchmark stable. But the best part is that the overclock i run for every day use, i cut also clearly feel a difference from stock to overclock.
