well, 960t, ecs ic780m-a2, and patriot 1333 ram came in today.. popped it in, useing my zalman hsf. so far at 4.0ghz i am running 35 idle and 52 full load on prime.. sweeet.. i am at 1.360 vcore to be stable though. dont know if i should push any higher.

Limited stays in the 60c range is safe just not prolonged exposure to those temps, Head on over and see if you can get it stable at higher speeds/voltages but I wouldn't recommend keeping the new settings. IMO 4.0Ghz is perfectly fine anyways.

EDIT:
At least just see if it will boot at higher clock/Vcore just to quiet that cursed curiosity. tongue.gif

Mine runs 4.0 @ 1.375V, i can actually run it at .0125 less, but since I can't hardcode that into the bios, I just leave it at 1.375.

For me, it's at 4.2 that it really starts to suck up juice, but I've noticed that if i overclock the HTT to about 250 or so, it seems to take a bit of the edge off. Still in the process of testing it, but starting to wonder.

You can probably get 4.2 with about 1.425V, after that though, unless your processor is gifted, it's going to start needed more and more.

i will try more tomorrow or this weekend when i have more time. i noticed the 4ghz znc ddr3 really helped out in bf3.. man what a diff. i can actually push my 4870x2 without having a cpu or mem bottleneck.

Hey guys, I recently did my first build which I included the Zosma 960t

I was looking for some tips on overclocking it as I have no experience in doing it. I was fortunately able to unlock all 6 cores and get it to become a 1600t with my m5a97 asus motherboard now I just want to get it to 4.0ghz stable. anyone able to help?



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
ZALMAN CNPS9500A

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 . . .

BTW, Congrats!

Got hit the sack, goodnite.

im currently at 4.0GHz at 1.416v and its prime stable, NB at 2600MHz.

wondering if its worth going to 4.2GHz, atm the socket temp is 52c and the core temps are 40c in prime. the thing is the vcore needed for 4.2 is kind of high for my chip. 1.44v doesnt seem to cut it

Yeah, 4.2 probably requires about 1.45 to 1.50 depending on the system. I believe mine runs @ about 1.475, and 4.3 is about 1.525v. Not really worth it considering.
