Can you get it over 4GHz?
oh hell yea i was at 4.2ghz last night 1.4750v stable for 2 hrs and something i bet i could even run a lower vcore, go back a page i posted my results chicken
hit over 4.5ghz and i will be impressed infared on XS's has gone that far on air
4.4ghz nor 4.5ghz wont go, has o be the board or max of cpu, ill find out when i make it a dual core 4.5ghz if the same results the then i will know if its the board or cpu
working on 4.3ghz as we speak as a quad core 1.5250v
this does not seem right 22c as a dual core 4500mhz idle
It's impossible unless you are really cold in your room right now. Add 10-12c at least.
10-12C until you hit 50C then it is closer to correct 62C is exactly correct on them per AMD
I finally got over 3.9GHz stable, 3.984MHz exactly, leaving the multiplier on auto. Not bad after trying for 9 months.
i only had this phenom II 555 for a few days 4.2ghz x4 24/7
Must relatively golden, as till today, i only was able to validate that on my 955... and that after months of tweaking, on a Killer loop
Huge difference between you c2 chip and his c3 chip. Mine on a killer loop did about the same as yours but with 4.1 stable. Downside the these new c3 chips is the imc cannot hold a candle to yours the old c2 chips and first few batches of c3 could handle way higher volts than these new ones.
indeed, as i have one of the VERY early batches, as you once stated...a CACYC 0915 APMW,a batch known to be a good OCer,for a C2 955, from my knowledge, when your own 955,which was an ES was of batch 0918 APMW, and as such, younger than my Retail proc
Thanks for clearing that up,cda!
Where the hell did all the AMd OC'ers go? Was playing with the 1090T this evening and this is where im at so far
Just a little more .
dude.... you have a NB cooler right??
or it'll fry man... 3GHz!!!
Probably not 24/7 frequencies . Mine aren't.
No offense, but what the heck are you talking about? AthlonX2's 3Ghz NB setting is perfectly fine. What you are seeing is the IMC's frequency that's on the chip. It can be clocked the same way as the actual cores, it only adds about a few degrees to the chip's temps itself. It's worth clocking it that high.
I'm in I'm in.....
what settings need to be changed to OC the NB? mines only at 2GHz, so i'd like to know some reccomended settings to get it higher (2.4-2.6 would be fine)
i have the same board as crunchie, so his input would be appreciated
CPU NB Frequency should have an unlocked multiplier. Can up that a few notches and don't go past 1.45v in CPU NB VID.
what voltage range is normal, say for 2.6?
On a thuban chip I'd think about 1.3-1.35v. One of those things that "every chip is different" applies here.
i tried 1.30v... some impressive boosts to memory speed at 2.6Ghz NB, compared to stock 2Ghz.
if my math holds true, the L1 read is 18% faster now, after a 30% increase in NB clocks. nice improvements, now to test stability.
Might be able to get 2.8, my lil C3 does 2.6 no sweat, try for 3.8Ghz clock speed also. A good way to figure out if your bottlenecked by NB is look at your Memory and L3 cache reads, memory should show to be faster like your pic.
