She will be going from an old Athlon x1 to a Phenom x4, I think she'll be thrilled with the performance boost as she doesn't think her computer can be any faster and I can't build her a new system as the OS change would confuse her really bad.
Will update if it unlocks or not, if and when I get it. wink.gif

cool but before you put that chip make sure her mobo's bios is up-to-date.

you might want to look up your MOBO before you do. I dont think most old am2+ systems can support am3 chips, which is what the 960T is. And even if you could i wouldnt recommend it since you most likely wont be able to OC (imagince your grandma with a 4.0ghz cpu thumb.gif). If that mobo is the one that came with the computer when she first got it, then it definatly wont be able to. DO NOT try to force the chip into the slot if its not the right one, which im pretty sure you know. but i would recommend spending a little cash on a new mobo. (i think ive seen some pretty decent ones for like 80-100$)

Use Cpu-id to find out the model and make of your mobo, and then you can find specs if you really want to make sure if the new chip will work or not

I know all these procedures. lachen.gif

I lol'd at "DO NOT try to force the chip into the slot" I have been building computers for over 10 years now, I do believe I know not to force them by now. and as I said earlier the option for swapping motherboards is not an option for her as she does not want an OS change or a reinstall as any large scale changes will frighten her. She's 80 years old, computers already confuse her as it is.

I have a AM3 motherboard, AMD 925 x4, WD Caviar Blue 500GB, and an unused copy of windows that we bought specifically for this task but she doesn't want to go through with it.

ah my bad.. .yes i kinda realized that after the i posted. Saw your profile and saw your no noob. i was going to say something but you beat me to it.
do you thnk she would notice the MOBO swap? I thought as long as the OS is installed on the HDD you dont have to reinstall even with MOBO swap, so she really wouldnt notice a change...correct me if im wrong though.

Nope, Bottom line is that if you swap motherboards you have to reinstall your OS. The only way to keep your old OS is if you replace the motherboard with the same model motherboard (EX: motherboard failure) or if you clone and replace the HDD. I am about to test my Current CPU in that motherboard as I can't find an up to date compatibility sheet anywhere, and it never hurts to try.

As for the post earlier, it's K man it's overclock.net. We try to help people whenever we can. You had no Idea that I built my entire families line of computers. tongue.gif

The chipset may work,but all the other drivers would probably make it unbootable. It's a gamble.


Guys I just came across this article again, it's fairly old, but it puts temps and voltage into perspective for us Thuban overclockers.

got nb to 2900 no problem @ 1.25 cpu-nb.
only thing i dont get is this chip has 1600 imc but on my 955be and athlon ii x2 i could get this ram to 1500mhz or little more but on this chip it do like anything much over stock?

Did you update your BIOS? Your mobo won't really know what that 960T is if you have an older BIOS. And my M4A79XTD Evo didn't have alot of the features (turbo core wasn't in my existing BIOS at all).

I have been busy with upgrades at the office all week, but hopefully I find the max clocks tonight and get added to the list. I ran X4 no prob at 4.2GHz/1.41V, so I'm kinda wondering what the max stable X4 will be.

So right now X6 is stable at 4.0/1.41V with CnQ enabled. What kind of clocks would you all want to get 24/7 out of X4 to make it worthwhile? I could push it as X6 with higher voltage but it's going to get too hot, and I'm not ready to dump $100 on an H100. Or should I? lol wink.gif I will be going to Microcenter for a monitor mount and HDMI cables soon.....3 H100s in stock.....

Thanks I will try that when I order. thumb.gif

Is that why this 3000+ Venice won't go into my AM2 board even with a rubber mallet? Damn it all!!
