Edit* my build is:
ASUS M5A97 AM3+
AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma 3.0GHz
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W
are you ready? try this as a quad first.
Redwoodz taught me this about a month ago.
- go back to bios and set everything to default
- disable the following - C1E, Turbo, HT, and Cool & Quiet. if you Turbo V - turn that off as well.
- set your vcore to 1.38v or 1.4v (try 1.38 first)
- raise your Multiplier to 20
- the fsb should be at 200
- save and exit.
monitor your temp using programs like hw monitor. WATCH the TEMPS.
For detail steps and fine tuning follow this guide . . .
Got hit the sack, goodnite.
