need some help on a decision

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
i just picked up a pII 955 c3 with cacac batch and im haveing issues with it. it runs awesome at stock but it idles at 31c and loads at 49c is this normal? should i take it back? also i have really weird issues while overclocking. i get random freezes while stress testing while doing both straight multi oc and fsb low multi oc no mater what numbers i put it it freezes and freaks out on me. is this all good reason to take it back to the store i got it from and swap it out for a new one?

Unlocking to x4 can mean you unlocked unstable cores that were shut off for a reason in some cases. This looks fairly normal this one just isn't the golden chip that got binned low.

Woops was reading that a little wrong. Does it still freeze at stock speeds or only once overclocked?

only once i overclock even if i oc 200x15 with 1.38 to 1.4v (very close to stock voltage it still freezes. bumping up nb ht and ram voltage does nothing to fix it either

If it works fine at vanilla specs you're not supposed to return it, that being said....(stuff I can't post on this forum)

my bigest question is are the temps ok? 31c at idle seems a little high. considering when i did have my unlocked x2 555 it idled at 27c when unlocked and 24c as an x2 i know they are 2 dif chips. thats why im asking. also my local frys has a crap ton of them in stock. thats why im saying if id have a better chance at finding a new chip that will oc better. me being me i hate stock speeds im addicted to overclocking and want to push it. if i cant oc it then i dont want it haha. after all this is ocn.

as a side note if it works im not supposed to return it but if it doesnt meet my needs(technically wants) then its as good as defective lol i mean it wont even stabilize at 3.3ghz
