Not all chips are the same. The reason why AMD would even state on there website that 61c is the limit for this chid and some others is because that is what the mass majority of them will do without a problem. Some of the better quality chips can get even higher without a problem since the silicon is rated at 90c that does not by any means mean that all chips will do up too 90c. That's why they put a recommended limit as in going over that limit will void the chips warranty so will overclocking. This is not a hard concept to understand.

No, but the masses will not know this. I didn't either.

That was an $80 air cooler at the time I bought it. So if you can get the 620 for $65 or less I think its a good value. However, it works much better with two identical fans in push/pull. I didnt care much for the stock fan so I bought two new fans for it. (Well I had them lying around but you know what I mean.)
So if you count the 2 fans you're going to want to put on it, it comes to be about a $80 cooler.

So far my 4.5GHz is stable for about 5 hours. It seems to throttle in Prime95 but its fine when I'm running Folding@Home. When Folding all cores stay at 4.5GHz but in prime they bounce around from 3.3 to 4.5. What's this all about?

I'm leaning towards the Antec, I've plenty of fans to pick and choose from.

You tried disabling Turbo in AI tweaker?

Anyone know what causes a red screen crash? Playing bf3 multi this morning and one game just froze although the pc did not, was able to end through task manager, then during the second game crashed with a red screen, buzzing sound and a windows restart leaving a mem dmp file behind. If this is oc related what would be the likely cause? vcore? ram?

Thanks in advance

What version of CCC do you use on those 7870s? Try to roll back to 12.6.

I use 12.8ccc. You think this is gpu related? I probably need to analyse the dump files but no idea how. Think im being greedy with the oc without full stability. Time to wind it back. I never had ccc issues before pushing the cpu that little bit further.

more then likely its from your unstable overclock.

Then maybe it is CPU, but the symptoms sound similar to what a half dozen people in the 7870 owners club have described.

I have had the unfortunate experience of a few "red screens" - they were caused by a failing video card on both counts. One was a stock HD6870 and it just died. The other was on an overclocked GTX470 and after clearing the cmos the card worked fine at stock clocks. (it's still folding as a matter of fact).

NOW - as for the Bulldozer Temp "discussion" - put those chips under water and fughettaboutit! LOL - I have never experienced temp readings greater than 50-51c and that was during P95. I can say that an overclock of 5GHz with 1.58v killed my chip after 6 weeks (daily gaming). So, to me, the REAL issue is what is a safe VOLTAGE. I'm currently running a FX-4100 @ 4.4GHz with 1.50v, so I guess I'll see how long it lasts. Probably replace it with Piledriver before it fails...(I hope)!
