OCNers who have bought a Zosma 960T: Your results?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about selling off some hardware to a co-worker, and getting a 960T.

I'm curious as to the luck OCNers have had with unlocking it. I have a MSI 790FX-GD70 which should unlock it fine (it unlocked my 555BE) if the cores are good.

Just would like to get OCN results, rather than depending on solely Newegg reviews.

Thanks for any input.

The odds are not in your favor that both cores will unlock. They are still great chips for the money but the 2 locked cores should be considered as such when making your purchase. If you get one and both cores unlock then lucky you.

Just be careful. An unlocked and overclocked 960T may blow up that MSI board.

Here is my unlocked and OCed 960T

Why would it blow it up? the 790FX-GD70 is supposed to handle the 1100T just fine.

I'm interested in why you say that now.

NewEgg has them $15 off til tomorrowo. $109.99 and free S/H.

I just hope I can sell my GPUs to my co-worker's brother tomorrow, deposit the cash, and order it 2 day and have it get to my house Friday.

Thanks for replies guys smile.gif

... supposed. Check the link and you will see how many MSI boards blew up.... even with quad core CPUs

Hm...weird.

Currently, I've got a AMD Phenom II x2 555BE in it unlocked and OCed to 3.6GHz, and it's not even stuttered in about 2 years time. And, I've ran 12 processes across the 4 cores and pushed that thing to it's breaking point before when it was OCed @3.96GHz with dual 5850s in Xfire.

Of course, I have top notch parts in my big rigs. Make sure to get nice PSUs with plenty of juice and nice level power output.

I will be careful if I put the 960T in it. I know the 960T is a lower power-usage chip per core. If I can just put it in and unlock it at 3GHz, that will be good to me. But, there could be a lot of things that caused those to blow. I just hope mine doesn't do the same.

But you're right. That is disturbing about the 790FXs blowing up with just x4 CPUs in them. I wonder if it was just a bad batch of parts they got on a production run or something? frown.gif
