I've personally felt this ten fold with thuban chips. I dont know if its the tweaked memory controller or what... but once you hit 55c... the chip makes your OCing life hell...
keep it cool,

Been my experience with Phenom II's regarding 55c and stability. Will the chip burst into flame's if ran past 62c? Probably not, its however not recomended by anyone to get that high on a phenom II(72c).

Okay. You Guys are awesome.
I know Australia is probably the worst place to OC because of Ambient Temps so I've wound the Multiplier back a bit, and I'll be happy to leave it Maxing at 57C @ stock Volts (3.598Ghz is still better than 3.4Ghz)
I may invest in a Water-Cooled, Global-Warming-Planet-Proof pipe, as Summer gets closer...
Cheers KhaoticKomputing, and MadGoat.

I have a no A/C policy and it get up to 95-105f ambient temps with ease. I have my UD3/955BE running 4.0Ghz/2800CPU-NB @1.450Vcore/1.30CPU-NB Volts. I use a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ with 2x PWM blademaster fans(using PWM). Temp's stay below 55c on prime95/stress testing. Gaming for hours on end (BF3-Skyrim) net's peak temps in mid to upper 40's.

In the same kind of hot temps I also run an i5 2500k @ 4.7Ghz on air with ease(Silver Arrow). All you need is a decent quality case, quality cooler and proper fan selection and set up. You'll be overclocking in no time. Water is a good option too, but very costly.

I live in Australia also bud, I just invested into a water cooler (corsair h80) in preparation for our summer. Don't stick with stock coolers if your overclocking, I got a 20c drop in temps from my h80 over stock . They are about $130 here locally. thumb.gif

Just make sure your case will allow for the radiator , it needs to be able to fit a rear 120mm fan. . What sort of case do you have?

Spend the extra $20 and get the H100 if you can fit it. My i7 950 @4.15ghz gets to around 65degrees during summer here in brisbane. So if u can afford it get it smile.gif

Here is another link.

You even said to that post that you were well known of this fact on the forum wink.gif

and do you think that a stock amd cooler can hold a cpu stock under 55 degrees in a room with ~25 degrees ambient?

I know that AMD released on their site the thermal limit for the chip's to be 62c. I also know that I used a stock cooler on my 955 BE and never over heated.

Your miss understadning what we use the 55c mark for. its very common for oc to become unstable after 55c.

**I'm confused, are yout talking about AMD FX(BD chips) or Phenom (Denab/Thuban)??**
