okay friend go to sleep good night
here is the pic of my Oc cpu
This is a screen shot
May I join? Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition (RB-C2), DFI LanPart DK 790FXB-M3H5. Managed 3.6GHz on stock volts. Should be rig sig.
Also, if I may bug everyone for some advice, I've heard 3.6-3.8 GHz is sort of the "wall" for nearly everyone, but I see some people have managed to get past that. I've bumped voltage up around 1.5v which resulted in absolutely no budge at all. I've tried bumping other voltages ever so slightly. I've been using AMD Overdrive and the BIOS (I haven't noticed much of a difference between the two. Test changes in Overdrive, save them in BIOS when they work). How do I breach this OC wall, oh great masters of Phenom II?
I thought the answer to any OC wall was simply more voltage, but I'm starting to wonder. I'm showing roughly 27c idle, 36c load (linpack). Quick (10m) stress shows stable. 3.6GHz seems to be the limit for 1.35v and needs a slight bump (1.4v at most) to hit 3.8-3.9GHz (unknown stability).
I'll try to dig through the 330 pages here for answers tomorrow (when I'm not half asleep).
Quick Edit: 3.8GHz wasn't completely stable at 1.4v. A tiny bump to 1.425v brought it to stability.
Well as far as the overclock, good job man, is it stable? How are the temps?
As far as your score, what video card are you running? If you are running something that lacks Physx your score will be that low.
Hi all ! Week left til i buy this 955BE & start the overclock, here's the question : using stock HSF (won't have enough $$$$ this month for both CPU & TRUE, just CPU) how high i should go for overclock/overvolt with it ? 3.6/3.7GHz for CPU, 1.40v for vCore ? I know HT freq left on 2000MHz clock. Also if i'll get rev. C3 CPU, how well it'll overclock/overvolt compared to rev. C2 CPU ? Thanx in advance.
The C3's have a better IMC so they overclock considerably better. As far as temps just stay below 55ºc
^That one was fast. Thanx dude.
No problem bro
Just a question on that: are you referring to die temperature, or core?
Only asking, as the max temps are stipulated by AMD in regards to die, not core.
Not sure why they stipulate that, but there it is..
I'm referring to core temp.
Just got my Gigabyte board and man is it nice. it is all blue and white they did away with all the green,orange, red and purple slots making it more ascetically pleasing.
NICE TRT! post a picture once you have finished
it been a long time since I had a AMD system what the general rule of thumb for max voltage on these chips is it 1.5v ?
That sounds about right 1.5-1.525v. Max safe temp 55ºc, max absolute temp 62ºc.
new video card
Making it official.
Edit: To-do list: Bump speed on the HT Link to 12x (2400MHz).
I believe your HT Link can only be as high as the Bus speed. Therefore you need to drop the multiplier down a bit and clock higher using the bus.
Got the board for sale if anyone is interested. its NEW IN BOX
FS/FT ZOTAC GF8100-C-E AM2+/AM3 nVidia GeForce 8100 micro ATX
Is it me or do these amd systems not seem to handle higher clocked ddr3 ram as well as intel. thats easily fixed with tighter timing but why bother with ddr3 then?
Give us some more details. But yes RAM does seem to clock better with Intel for some strange reason.
Well my boards rated for ddr3 1600 but at or near ddr3 1600 and my usb ports malfunction and other wacky things, but if I drop the ram down and tighten the timing I can go much higher with no problems. I also lose zero performance because my ram runs tighter. On a side note my rig is fast as hell. I don't miss my quad at all.
