I read all the threads,Thanks! I learned some really interesting things... thumb.gif

Depending on settings, my 960T will either post as a 1600T or a 1605T. Has anyone observed this with their setup? If so,What is the real difference? I see the change when I am working on Memory settings and the NB.

That's entirely up to how CPU-Z wants to say what it is unlocked.
That's common to see with unlockable chips and believe it or not, even my 1100T reads as a 1105T sometimes - CPU-Z can and will read chips weird on occasion.

From what i've been reading about this board it should have decent OC abilities. But when going through the oc tweaker that is in bios it tells me that the max multi I can use is 12.5 which I find rather odd considering that when kepping the auto core clock on CPUZ will show the processor using a multi of 14.5 to get to 2.9. I've treid updating the bios to the newest (with exception of the beta bios) which is version 2.0 and nothing really changed except that it gave me the ability to be compatible with piledriver. Will probably end up moving to one of those in the future since the board can handle it. Also on another note the cooler I got
http://www.amazon.com/Rocketfish-RF-UPCUWR-Universal-CPU-Cooler/dp/B0030U9ET0
Really does not make any difference when using a push>pull configuration. temps are staying about 30c overall with the individual cores showing as about 18c. I'm defintely going to be giving that thread a read as from the first link its pretty obvious that this thing should be able to hit 4ghz
EDIT: running Prime95 torture test temps are not going above 42c I would say thats pretty decent for an air cooler.
EDIT2: after 4 hours of Prime95 highest temps I saw were 44c which is still really good but I think I'm going to return the cooler, My stock cooler was gett lower temps with about 38-39c and only occasionally hitting 41c. Dont get me wrong its not a bad cooler but when stock cooler gets you better temps might as well return it.

so, you are using bios designed for the 960T? from one of the screenies i saw that the fsb was raised up to 300. you can try that and 12 multi and start from there to reach 4. have you tried oc'ing as a quad (i must have missed it). make sure to reset RAM and NB (2000MHz). reset cpu/nb to about 2600 if you can and up the voltage.

yah, good move returning that cooler.

you're not the first to ask and someone here said that at 15 and above multiplier unlocked the chip turns to 1600T.

Thanks, Overall I am very impressed with this CPU Regardless of how I am running it.Some will frown, I'm not much a gamer other than FPS games, I use this setup for audio production.I OC it for fun...biggrin.gif The wife and kids are away so I must play!thumb.gif

Serker, i am very impressed with not just the 960T but all thubans. but i think amd has come up with something better with the vishera. i am looking forward for steamroller.

btw, in case you don't know, our chip only needs 4.5GHz to reach 8 in cinebench. pretty powerful. if only it can do 5GHz.

Yes, If you start pushing this chip it posts as a 1600T, No difference from my observation other than the description it posts, LOL... I can run it 24/7 around 3.8 and it runs very cool on a 212... With low voltages and temps no higher than 40-41c depending on how high the heat is in the room... Breaking the 4.0Ghz and over is when the issues begin! Mine are always BSOD's relating to Memory.I push the NB and drop CPU multipliers, Or push the CPU voltages and Multipliers...It makes no difference.Above 3.8 it's a keep your fingers crossed situation.I have a cheap GPU comparatively...and have a lot peripherals connected to the system... I turn off everything I do not need in the BIOS.When I see posts from users using a similar setup and see 4.2-4.4Ghz, I question if their systems are stable.I can run mine up above 4Ghz on air long enough to get a CPUID validation, but it's not a 24/7 OC that has been stress tested and it 100% stable.Regardless, for me the price of this CPU and what it is capable of is amazing.thumb.gif

Yes indeed...Thubans are great chips for the price... I'm going to look into the Vishera, Been so busy with work and have not been keeping up.Sounds FUN! Perhaps when I upgrade I will go all out and see what this currant setup will do before I let the smoke out of her!LOL!biggrin.gif

i think your chip behaves exactly like mine if all things equal. try these setting for 4GHz as a QUAD first:

1. Reset BIOS to default
2. Set multiplier to 20
3. BLCK should be at 200
4. Set CPU Vcore to 1.38v (if it does not boot - raise it slowly to 1.39/1.4 but do not go over 1.47v)
5. Reset your RAM to default setting
6. Reset your NB (Labeled HT Link in CPUZ) to 2000MHz; vcore auto.
7. Reset CPU/NB to 2400 for now. Raise its vcore to 1.3v
8. Disable the following - Turbo, C1E, Cool & Quiet
9. If your board has LLC (CPU and CPU/NB) enable them.
10 Restart.

if it boots and showing signs of stability. . .

11. Raise the CPU Vcore from previous setting by 0.02v(or higher)
12 Unlock Cores

NOTE: Monitor your temps closely.

Very Nice... So? Unlock the cores last instead of first...Thank You!
