What's the TDP of a Phenom II x4 B60, stock voltage??

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My Phenom II X2 560 unlocks to a Phenom II X4 B60.
The TDP of the 560 is 80W
What is the TDP of the B60?

How much extra wattage does the processor consume due to the unlock compared to a "stock" Phenom II X4 running at the same frequency (3.3GHz) ?
Thanks.

125W or 140W, depending if the stepping is C3 or C2.

Seeing yours is C3, it's probably 125W.

Noone knows for sure. My bet would be 140W.
(it could be an odd number, doesn't have to be one of the pre-defined 65, 80, 95, 125, 140)

If it's a C3, 125w TDP

Even without OCing and unlocking, that mobo at stock can ruin that mobo, just because it's a 3+1. If it were a 4+1, you'd have some safety, but 3+1 is too litle.

I do have Over Current Protection and a 125W board not made by MSI. Thanks!

I have a 3+1 phase power mobo. If it can stand a 970 and 1090T both are 125 watts at stock for a 6 hours stress test each then most 3+1 can handle stock speeds cpu. My 3+1 mobo is still running fine. Right now it has an Athlon II 240 x2 2.8ghz oc to 3.75ghz on 1.53v(112 watts). I can go to 3.85ghz without a problem (115 watts). Look at my back up rig under my profile.

EDIT
I have VRM coolers on the mobo too.

No way to really know unless you compare the power draw to a non unlocked x4. The cores could have been locked down for any number of reasons, and if they're stable you've already eliminated that as a possible reason.

I don't recommend you unlock on this motherboard due to VRM limitations, though you are protected by VRM thermal shutdown in case it overloads. Of course, enabling the cores would add power consumption, enough to equal the Phenom II x4.

I do not plan on unlocking on this board. I was curious pf the TDP difference of an unlock compared to a lock on the Phenom II 560BE. I was also wondering if an unlocked CPU requires more wattage than a comparable CPU of the same frequency, number of cores and architecture.

A Phenom II x2 B60 unlocked will consume around the same power as the equivalent Phenom II x4 processor with equivalent clock speed and cache amount.
