If you're running 6 cores, I'm willing to be the VRMs are overheating; when the system crashes, is it an immediate BSOD or does it freeze up first and then eventually BSod?
Yeah, but using Q&C to unclock or K10stat, you can probably get the chip to run 4.8ghz PEAK, but not sustained. I can boot into windows at over 4.4, but it won't prime for more than 15-20 minutes before the system reboots.

Oh at my 24/7 OC of 4.0 I never have a problem at all but I guess I could lower the voltage a bit on the CPU/NB and it could bring my MB temp down a bit. Back when I was switching my fans out I had my motherboard overheat and shut down but my MB temp usually hovers at around 30c~32c but when I play heavy games like BF3 it gets up to around 43c but that's what you get for having two 3 slot GPU's, they block alot of airflow to the motherboard. I am ordering some additional components soon to alleviate that problem though.

If THIS is your motherboard then it does support "Core Unlocker".

I couldnt get it to work, so im thinking its the mobo that the weak link to unlocking it, i think i could be able to if i had a little better mobo.I tried and it actually made it into a 3 core so i gave up.

Generally motherboards don't cause problems for unlocking CPU cores and in your case it sounds like you got a bad chip when it comes to unlocking cores. Idk it never hurts to upgrade to a better board if you plan to overclock as your VRMs seem to be lacking heatsinks, and your board doesn't support 8+2 Phase Power so overclocking isn't really recommended on that board anyway. rolleyes.gif

I would say socket temp -5C for Prime Large FFT or Linpack test and -8 to 9C for Prime Blend. Just a rough estimate, since the socket temp is always reported as higher than the core, but in unlocked systems is the only gauge for temps.

As for stock cooling, I hope it's not the dink heatsink they sent with mine, because I would barely cool a graphics card with that, let alone a processor.

Yeah, for my "normal" overclock, I decided to go with 6 cores @ 4.0ghz @ 1.4V Vcore. To me, the massive increase in voltage to stabilize 4.1-4.3 just wasn't worth it; I got my NB running 3000 with 1.325V. I'm willing to bet though, in system with ddr3 memory, you might need a tad higher CPUNB, since I'm only running 1066 ddr2, i think it gets away with slightly less. I've yet to see many people running 3.2GHZ, I tried, but meet with instability, though I didn't push the system all that hard, lol.

43 is fine, considering when you run stress tests it's probably simulating a load most people will never use. Hell, I can get 4.4ghz game stable, but it crashes 5 seconds into prime; go figure.

Sometimes I do get tempted to purchase another chip to see if I could get lower voltages at 4.0Ghz like you guys. tongue.gif
