for 4GHz and below you can re-enable C&Q after stability test, then do a retest. and yes, keep HT at 2000MHz.
btw, is your bios up-to-date?
EDIT: i fixed the link for the guide to oc'ing our chip. and here is info on prime95
http://www.playtool.com/pages/prime95/prime95.html
i just use blend and only for 4GHz as a hex.

i have all those features turned off (C1e, c&q, etc) ...ill lower the HT link back to 2000, but i probably will test to see the difference between 2000, 2200, and 2400 as ive read in other posts that it gives a slight bump in performance, but any higher than that and it is detrimental to performance. I have not updated my bios since i bought my mobo (gigabyte ga-990fxa-ud3) i believe im running the bios F4 .....im not sure how the whole flashing of bios and stuff works, so i havent messed with it thats why. I havent researched it yet thats all, but its on my to-do list.

thanks for that link though for prime95. im learning a lot of things that i didnt now about the program. thumb.gif

according to this site you need a F6 (if that is your mobo). verify it.

If anyone is thinking of getting a new motherboard I can wholeheartedly recommend the Asus Sabbertooth 990FX, it's been a dream to overclock on!

I literally bumped the NB/HT to 3GHz, no extra volts, and had no stability issues in doing so.

My current 24/7 clock is 4GHz on just 1.39v, all six cores, an hours on benching and I hit 50'C, idle is around 33'c. Awesome! biggrin.gif

Fist post, just joined because of how impressed I am with this chip. It won't stop letting me push it further.
I picked up the CPU, ram, motherboard, power supply, and case at my local Micro Center all on sale for $185 with tax about 3 weeks ago. I've since installed a TX3 cooler, which was <$20. I figured overclocking would be limited by virtually every budget component I've purchased, wow was I wrong this chip rocks. I've crossed the 7.3 mark in Cinebench 11.5 and know I've still got some headroom to push further.
I'm holding off on trying for x6 @ 4.4+ GHZ until my OCZ Agility 3 Series 120G, and two additional 120mm fans show up next week. Temps at 4.2GHZ are approaching 60 @100%. No reason to burn this gem up, I can wait for the extra air flow. Push/pull with the TX3 will probably be on the agenda in a few weeks.
I must have gotten really lucky with this CPU because there is now way with this config I should be rockin' such a fast machine.
Phenom 960t/1605t ($90)- Gigabyte 78LMT-SP2 ($10) - Value Ram DDR3 1333 8GB ($30)
Congrats to everyone who got their hands on the 960t, absolutely the best value in the PC market without question.

Just want to know what are the temps you get after unlocking and an OC to 3.9 Ghz @1.37 as I can unlock @stock but have not gone to higher G's as coretemp or any other temp monitoring software does not show me core temps. I like the 4.2 G's @1.49v I need 1.55 even to reach 4.1 G's.

i kept on preaching to others not to invest on old tech - now you got me thinking i might be wrong even though i am so content with my 880.

i'll look for a used one. i hate you, btw.

When i go to 3.9 on stock it seems to BSOD also in the same time frame (~5-8 hours)

Sounds like you have the turbo option turned on. It makes the "stock" voltage show up as 1.425v. Shut it off, it's useless if overclocked and just complicates things.

i have 970A-UD3 and mu load temp ar 35 biggrin.gif and NB is 3,2 ghz 1.375V CPU 4ghz 1.42V and this mobo is good too!
post #1208 of 2790
Different mobo will show different temps as they measure them differently, my old MSI told me my idle was 22'c and load mid 30'c... I didn't believe!

To be honest if my MSI AM2+ didn't die I would have kept it, doubt overclocking to this level so quickly would have been as easy though!

good thing it did not take the chip with it. even if it did . . . i guess it won't hurt much coz it only cost approx. $100. but seriously, good job!
