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
Hey Irony...Sorry 4 late Re:

My temps are around 40-45 in Idle/normal workload on all the cores (may vary +/-1 c) and @ full load the cores warms up to about 56 c but "the frying-pan moment" are imminent in IntelBurntest which reaches 60c+/- and that is HOT!. (I should also wipe the rad. ofc.:slap: @ myself)

I must also add that my fan setting is to as close to inaudible @ idle but kicks in when it gets hot decided by the curve I have set it on in Gigabyte EasyTune 6. "Uberexplanation" Rocks!:laugh:

[Edit:] Well I feel I may have and even have --->exaggurated<---(spelling?) when stating my point, yet yours are definately running cooler (my op. is that every degree counts really).

About the Intels I cant say really as my latest Intel were a C2D E6550 which were running extremely cool IMO (I had it with the beefy Tuniq Tower 120 sporting it:wtf::eek::D) soo...:twitch: lets not talk Intels in this thread OK:D:cool:

at 1.475V shouldn't have killed of your CPU PII's are good for upto 1.5V before you need water cooling

I never let a mobo auto detect anything never ever in most cases you get underclocked ram and CPU
ya Always best to reset CMOS/ clear BIOS/UEFI and then power up and re-implement normal system settings and for ram that have specific voltages and timings and clock speeds, manually input them because SPD will not work right. Auto settings for CPU are fine unless if you are overclocking, Also im not sure if CNQ works right when a CPU is overclocked.

weird you mean at less than half the wattage that intel chip runs cooler?


Your temps overall sound very normal for the clockspeed, voltage and a fake loop.

Coupled with "The Beast" (own naming ofc.) a.k.a Sunbeamtech Tuniq Tower 120 atleast as I never (w. some exceptions in the past) use stock coolers I can´t say it would run cool with that tiny piece of NB-cooling:rolleyes:;)

Yeah but we were not discussing if my temps are normal or not as Irony asked what my temps were and I replied.

My temps are normal only a bit/5-10c something higher-ish than Ironys on a X6/DH-14 and I state that this bit is not so little when every degree counts as the wall is 62c acc. to AMD over this the chip may be damaged, you may already know this but anyways a random reader may not?

Hehe fake-loop/cheap-loop still it works like a charm:D:rockout:

Yeah, that's kinda what I thought about the temps. All x6s seem to run very cool.

As for intel, its irrelevant in this thread.


(BTW, I think your name and avatar might be one of the best I've ever seen, as far a hilarity goes. First time I saw it, I was like, :wtf: and then I looked closer at your av. and then I was like :laugh::toast::respect::rolleyes::roll:)

Decided to go way earlier for what you suggested, DSJ: it's alive!!!!!!!! Used following apps:

WinRAR (multithreaded, think it was 64-bit binary but you have to forgive me cause i have it since 2008);
3DMark11 PT & CT;
Crysis CPU_benchmark 1 (starting from 3.9GHz & higher it doesn't make much difference in fps i think);
CPU-Z dump & CanardPC validation.

Set following options in BIOS for this OC:

CPU ratio (multi): x20.5;
CPU-NB: 2400MHz;
CPU voltage: 1.4635v;
HT Link: 2000MHz;
RAM: 1333MHz.

Personally i don't see much difference (if at all), other than it is also validated in CanardPC; maybe if i'll test it in LinX (75mins again? :)) it'll give this OC a justice. Pics:

I think the max. voltage stated by AMD is 1.550, and I've gone higher than that with my chip.

Yeah 1.5v is not bad at all. Been there done that, chip still runs.

I see what you mean


Yeah, I've been running mine at 1.52v for a week or two, without any trouble. (4.1Ghz) I think I might have a leaky chip, which isn't nesecarily bad, I guess. it means I can run higher voltage through it. But I have run it at 1.6v, and its still fine. extra voltage won't hurt AMD chips like it does intel. As long as you keep it cool, they stay happy.

dude learn more about hardware, cause anyone with the right mind knows that a ASUS M4A88TM-LE is crap when it comes to overclocking, it cant handle high power usage going trough the pwm, and vrms, so yea keep running your cpu at those settings the board will fry, and might even take other components out.

i don't understand i people come on hear overclocking with a 4+1 or even 3+1 phase motherboards with quad and six core, bottom line 4+1 boards cant take the power and get real hot never mind overclocking. get it trough you're head guys if u want to overclock your cpu with out risk of frying your motherboard or blow other parts, the buy a 8+! or 8+2 phase motherboard

I know. I really am not too worried about this board tho, I'm replacing it with a Fatal1ty in a couple days.

None taken.


Yeah, I'll be on this thread posting results as soon as I get it. I'm hoping 12+2 power phase (as opposed to 3+1) will allow me to use this chip to its potential.

Decided to go way earlier for what you suggested, DSJ: it's alive!!!!!!!! Used following apps:

Personally i don't see much difference (if at all), other than it is also validated in CanardPC; maybe if i'll test it in LinX (75mins again? :)) it'll give this OC a justice. Pics:
Way to go YT!:rockout: (I knew u had it in ya:)):toast:

Agreed the feeling is more often negligble and subtle in most cases.

75mins of LinX should be enough! maybe even overkill I beleive.

See ya around m8

I see what you mean


Yeah, I've been running mine at 1.52v for a week or two, without any trouble. (4.1Ghz) I think I might have a leaky chip, which isn't nesecarily bad, I guess. it means I can run higher voltage through it. But I have run it at 1.6v, and its still fine. extra voltage won't hurt AMD chips like it does intel. As long as you keep it cool, they stay happy.
:pimp:

Thats good to know about the voltage-hurting if this is a fact? I remember vaguely that the voltage that the guys set on the CPU during the AMD "Dozie" WR, were over 1.7v maybe even 1.75v:eek: but that were together with liquid Helium, so I am guessing/theorizing that if you put a CPU on a stick roasting slowly over a camp-fire and as long as its encapsulated in a media thats keeps it cool enough then it should be able to work without issues:wtf: ehhr or maybe not?:laugh:

I'm confused as to why you'd have external heat on the CPU, (even in theory) When it produces plenty. But as long as you keep it cool and don't run insane amounts of voltage though it, it will be fine.

More like CPU have it in itself :laugh: (able to OC that high, if approached correctly), or do you actually mean that i have guts to experiment like that? Thanx nevertheless.

Soon will run LinX than, probably in a week or two from now. :toast:

On air? WTF? :laugh: Maybe better off with Swiftech's H2O x20 monstrosity, even with VenomousX being ace for air-cooling it won't take that kind of beating i think. Yet i might go for such OC, but in one condition - it'll be in next rig:

Sabertooth 990FX;
AX1200W;
either with the current RAM config, or 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz;
VenomousX with Indigo Extreme ETI;
The rest of components won't be changed.

4.2GHz on - even though awesome, if not ace - but still, air cooler? My mind struggling to digest this suggestion; retract from this thought while you can. :roll: Maybe after i'll run LinX 75mins & see if it's stable + upgrade to the above mentioned components i'll go for it; til then - 4.1GHz LinX 75mins run & forget. Thanx nevertheless. :toast:

i can hit 4.2ghz np 24/7 with my cooler master hyper 212+ with a single 3000rpm 120m fan spinning no faster then 2400rpm max temps are 52c

Max temps @ load? I will definitelly wait to purchase Indigo Extreme than: the goal is to have less than 50C @ load or - even better - full load. 4.1GHz for now; thanx nevertheless. :toast:
