AMD Zosma 960T/1600T/1605T CPU Club - Page 17

Does 26c idle in bios seem high? I am using a hyper 212+

My ambient is probably around 16C.

When unlocked to an x6 it idles at the same.

I'm going to be doing more overclocking once i reinstall windows this weekend.
right now It takes like 35 seconds to get to the login screen but once i get there it takes 10 minutes just for me to be able to do anything.
Plus I have done 2 Motherboard exchanges and other hardware exchanges since i first installed it.

Here is a screen shot of my OC at 4.2ghz. It is 1 hour linpack occt stable and 6 hour occt stable. Could probably go higher if I push to 1.5v.338

Source? tongue.gif The only reason I replied on the subject in the first place was because of your habit to refer to anecdotes and bad experiences as scientific fact. You ought not throw statements like this out without extraordinary proof...you've already had 2 people vouch for unlocking on the 990FX chipset...I'd let it alone, imo. Which I will now do, too, lol

ASRock 990FX Extreme4 worked out of the box for me. I thought the whole 'have to drop in a chip to get the BIOS to play nice' thing was with a different chipset/core combo...I thought it was AM3+ chips on some older chipsets or something...in any case, my board works fine and it's an FANTASTIC board for the price range.

I seem to remember earlier saying do what you will and I will avoid the chipset for the sole reason of unlocking and seriously why the sarcasm? I was just merely stating what I know, when and I say WHEN did I once say it was fact. I will try to find the information I gleaned on this topic and post links but they are several months old so it may take awhile.



Also bashing people isn't a good way to make friends.

Edit: (the whole post with the important highlight)
And I'm basing my mistrust of the 990FX on several factors of which I've already explained prior to this, The 990FX chipset is awesome in plenty of other ways I'm just saying why get a 990FX anyways if you plan to be using an unlockable Phenom II and with the 990FX you'll more than double your chances of not getting a successful unlock? It just doesn't make sense to me.

Edited for things that shouldn't have been said. redface.gif (Heat of the moment kind of thing)

This is done here don't reply to this anymore because this has become flame material and if I have to I will delete all my posts pertaining to this topic. Now let's get back on the topic at hand. thumb.gif

Edit:
I apologize for getting a little heated there, Stuff IRL has me heated already so I neglected to notice you stated you wouldn't bring it up again. Please accept my apology

Can't find my Prime file. lol.

So I guess my chip isn't that abnormal then. I can go a bit lower (1.096v) but 1.08v is unstable.

It's just funny to see a chip load only ~5C higher than the idle tongue.gif

When unlocked to an x6 it idles at the same.

Use HW monitor or Speedfan. Both can be downloaded in CNET site if you have not so. When unlocked you know that the cores will not show any readings, right?

So, you have to go by the CPU temp reading which is a few degrees above the core temps. Check your temps when the chip is locked and note the difference.

26C is perfect for idle but the load temps carries more weight. I use to own the 212 and it failed to manage the temp of the chip when unlocked at 4 GHz and 1.4vcore using Intel Burn-In Test (IBT). Remember these are Thubans and their max temp is 62C (others may have to confirm this).

BTW, I read that core readings are off by about 10C. So, a 960T at idle, when the cores are reading 16C they are actually 26C (this needs to be confirmed as well by other owners of Thuban).

1.096v it is. I'll try that, too. biggrin.gif

I'll try to play some games with this setting.
