Multiplier in phenom x4 9950 BE - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Get a better cooler, or buy a new chip Seriously, the Phenom I 125W/140W chips were power-hungry beasts. I couldn't get that thing cool on an Arctic Freezer cooler, let alone the stock cooler.

Actually getting a new cooler could make it worse (i.e. tower cooler), you may be completely removing cooling to the VRMs and making the situation even worse by doing so. The problem is likely the motherboard; the VRMs are getting too hot pushing the processor that they cause throttling mid-game to protect the VRMs.

i used to have that CPU before the actual 955... i reached 3.0ghz rock solid with a simple overvolt of 0.25 and 15x moltiplier

listen to me, if you care of your PC... buy another CPU

so you say i should get either a new motherboard or a better cooler, hmm

i will check bios for thermal throttling as mentioned above, and will see then

Aw, first generation Phenom wasn't that bad (wasn't that good either).
It was the first native quadcore at least.

i know, i owned 2 of them, a x3 8650 and an x4 9950

anyway the 2nd series it's a complete PHENOMENAL revolution... i was really impressed when i saw the difference

Add some heatsinks to the MOSFETs on your motherboard?

Yes, this combined with a cpu cooler of this form factor will greatly improve cooling on MOSFETs, the extra air flow goes directly on the heatsinked MOSFETs and the result is really significant. You'll also get a much cooler cpu and a quieter fan. It's basicly your cheapest safe option if you ask me.
