Cool. :cool: Its getting down to 25f (-4c ~) around here at night. I should see what havoc I can wreak.

Just upped the CPU frequency abit like promised; funny thing once set the freq to 202MHz (multi @ x20.0) the RAM/CPU-NB/HT frequency fired to 1347/2626/2020MHz respectivly & even funnier CPU-Z reads the CPU freq as 203.6MHz; nevermind, here are latest screens/tumbnails. Included are CPU-Z dump+CanardPC validation, 3DMark11 PT & CT tests & Crysis 1's CPU_benchmark 1:

Hey man!...I want you to consider upping the voltage on the Vcore to 1.472/1.475v and set the multi to 20,5, keep the CPU freq. @ 200MHz and lock the HT @ 2000MHz or rather lower as your NB is set quite high IMO, but that´s very good as I´m sure you know that this affects the speed of the L3 cache :))

You should be able to reach my OC @ 4128MHz 24/7 Stable and even higher in theory at least.

(I just jumped in and so I haven´t read any previous post...just #13205 + a whim of your System Specs. So bear that in mind...cool?)

GL and GJ so far with your OCing :)

Tried this technique few months back, didn't quiet worked, but was fun while it lasted; maybe i will by end of this year, though. Just gimme a time & effort to research pros & cons & specific settings & i might come up with 4.1 by end of this year. Thanx regardless. :toast:

OK well I have read that many peeps have probs with the 20,5 multi so maybe your lucked out there...yeah thats the smarter way to go, educate/learn/and also trial and error ;)

I am confident in that you will break 4,1GHz:pimp:

So see you around later maybe?

^Yup, that's the spirit more or less. :laugh: Sure.

Also, i feel lucky that i got past 4.0GHz; CPU batches, cherry picking, what kind of revision CPU were - only in May this year i reached LinX 75mins 4.0GHz/1.4500v (more or less) stable run. Don't worry - once i gather here & throughout the Web all necessary info & stuff i'll post the ~4.1GHz OC by end of this year. :toast:

I've run mine stable at 21.5 with base freq. at 200. (i.e. 4.3ghz)

Edit: different CPU than mine though. Similar architecture, other than the lack of 2 cores.

For sure as I see you have the arguably best air-cooler to sport your X6 :eek::rolleyes::D

And as I see it some chips performs like specced (& then some) , some are golden and then we have the awesome ones!

So then it´s basically way too mismatched even when adding in a skilled OC...:banghead:;)

Nice clock you have stepped up to there either way man :rockout:

2Irony & DSJ (you don't mind me shortening your nickname do you?):

Looked @ sys specs of both of you, specifically the cooling section: each of you got best HSF & great LCS, so you both covered. Me? I have "mere" TR's VenomousX with few years old AS5 that more than surprisingly serves me well with this OC & HSF, but to go to the frequencies you suggest? I need more than knowledge & wisdom to reach these clocks; that's why i said that i'll reach ~4.1GHz by end of this month. Probably back up this kind of OC with better hardware & TIM (or prefferably ETI - Engineered Thermal Interface), but you'll have to wait. Ace CPUs both of you got & in your case Dsj ace of CPU's batch you got if it runs 4.12GHz 24/7 stable. Rev. C3 965BE's are great OC'ers like i said more than few pages back in this thread, you the one to proove it too. :) Also great Thuban OC Irony, congrats. :toast:

Well I dont mind at all as I use DSJ myself now and then.

I can agree with you in all aspects, but never underestimate the power of the words "I am confident in that you will break 4,1GHz" as it serves as a confidencebooster and some Jedi-Mind trick :eek::rolleyes::p

There are many tricks and treats surrounding the CPU itself, so dont stare yourself blind at one aspect...mainly cooling your CPU with a good cooler, the airflow in your case is equally important I would dear say (but leave the thermal paste djungle as the lowerpriced ones may perform equal or +/-1 degree c, BS would the manufacters say but they all just want their Diamondbased paste to sell more :shadedshu).

Thx for your praise and I also found the 965BE C3 a great overclocker for being so jampacked=warm as it runs, It doesnt match the superior Intel X58/Sandy but for the money spent I´ll say its perfectly capable to handle most of todays apps/games, but will fall behind more and more...but thats another discussion :confused::rolleyes:.

Best of luck!

:toast:

//DSJ

Adding answer:

"Dsj ace of CPU's batch you got if it runs 4.12GHz 24/7 stable"

Yeah it is running stable I have had it @ 4199MHz running 3Dmark11 and passed it and CPU-Z validation but hardly 24/7 stable as I wished for (while maintaining low fanspeed:)) and over but then it would complain...sometimes (the sound from the 2 Ultra Kazes @ full blast is stunning! to say the least)

2Irony & DSJ (you don't mind me shortening your nickname do you?):

Looked @ sys specs of both of you, specifically the cooling section: each of you got best HSF & great LCS, so you both covered. Me? I have "mere" TR's VenomousX with few years old AS5 that more than surprisingly serves me well with this OC & HSF, but to go to the frequencies you suggest? I need more than knowledge & wisdom to reach these clocks; that's why i said that i'll reach ~4.1GHz by end of this month. Probably back up this kind of OC with better hardware & TIM (or prefferably ETI - Engineered Thermal Interface), but you'll have to wait. Ace CPUs both of you got & in your case Dsj ace of CPU's batch you got if it runs 4.12GHz 24/7 stable. Rev. C3 965BE's are great OC'ers like i said more than few pages back in this thread, you the one to proove it too. :) Also great Thuban OC Irony, congrats. :toast:

Thanks for the praise. AMD x6s run very cool, as I have yet to break 41c under Prime95, with that Noctua cooler.

My chip isn't one of the golden ones, I don't think. I saw somebody on another thread a couple days ago who was at 4.44 stable with the same chip, and only using 1.45v. I have to run a terrifying 1.650v to stay stable at that speed. (for benching only, for obvious reasons) So I've been keeping it at 3.8 lately, with 1.475v. Although, I did have it at 4.000 for a couple months 24/7 at 1.55v, which is the max voltage stated by AMD. But I was getting better scores on Cinebench 11.5 with it at 3.8 than any other speed. So thats why its there currently. I'm thinking that maybe it's my board thats holding me back, because the vrm is only 3+1 which is as low as it gets, and not really at all good for OCing. I'm hoping my new board will help with that, at least a little

^ bet your temps are higher than you think 41C is probably a bit closer to 50C depending on which batch of internal sensors you got.

never underestimate the power of the words "I am confident in that you will break 4,1GHz" as it serves as a confidencebooster and some Jedi-Mind trick :eek::rolleyes::p
:laugh:

Deal, i will not underestimate. :toast: Here's a taste of which HW i'll use to back up the OC:

ASUSTek Sabertooth 990FX;
Patriot Viper Extreme rev. 2 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL8; (or any other brand RAM like that)
Corsair AX1200W;
2xhigh-speed PWM fans, any brand + the more RPM/CFM the better;

Also, bear in mind that Sabertooth 990FX (& Crosshair V Formula) have 2 4-pin CPU PWM headers, hence why 2 high-speed PWM fans + no need for 3-pin to 4-pin PWM adapter for this but rather to connect case fans to mobo's headers. By end of this year i'll post this 4.1GHz OC. :toast:

Probably, but still not bad.

I agree with both of you here, yet I I have to say that your temp is lukewarm if the cores holds 50/51c @ full load, and if so then I suppose that makes my 965 seem like a frying-pan in comparison:twitch::cool:...

I'm sure you said somewhere, but what are your temps?

I am constantly amazed by such expensive space heaters commonly called intel. You could heat your room in the winter with an i7 and a crumby air cooler. that has nothing to do with anything. I just felt like saying it.

AMD quads seem to idle kind of warm

Speaking of temps any unlockers got some ideas on obtaining semi accurate core temps on watercooling ?

My method was to use a fan controller with LED temp sensor, Place the sensor wire in the block or somewhere on the CPU side close as possible without messing up your contact with the block and CPU.
