Will Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition overclock with 1333 MHz ?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking will Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition overclock to 4.0 GHz with 1333 MHz memory and a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ cooler ?

Thanks

Has been done, frequently with the C3 models, the C2's (which I run) don't perform quite as well.

I'm running my 955BE with a Hyper 212+ at 3.6GHz with Max temps of 47c (100% load with Prime 95). 1.425v but I think I could push it some more when I get the time.

It should, because it's native 1333.

You should have no problem getting to 4Ghz with proper cooling. I am at 4.1 with my hyper 212+ push and pull. The memory won't hurt you because you will not be overclocking it. Only change your multiplier and voltage and the memory will still run at 1333. Let me know if you need help.

I run my C3 955 @ 4.1GHz and 8GB of 1632 MHz RAM no problem.

Just increase the CPU and CPU NB voltage.

Via multilplier, yes... RAM has little to do with CPU OC
Via bus clock.... probably not much, and the RAM is going to hold it back as it now has much to do with the OC

Note that due to high power consumption, overclocking on the 955 should be done with a motherboard with proper 125W support and overclocking friendly (quality 4+1 phase with cooling at the least).

I think it depends on the motherboard, couldn't overclock the 955 worth crap on a cheap mobo, but for some reason could overclock the 965 up to 3.9 on just stock but the 955 was c2 also
