AMD Zosma 960T/1600T/1605T CPU Club - Page 100

post #991 of 2790

Really, I was afraid of that. I think this board is capable of throttling when the mosfet's start overheating, would that cause bluescreens cause I'm not sure how that whole thing actually works. When my AS ceramique 2 arrives I'm going to tear everything down. I'm going to maybe start a rebuild log and painting all the heatsinks was 1 thing I was going to do. I have noticed that the mosfet heatsink moves alittle when it is touched, I think I bumbed it the other day when I was testing my coolit vantage.

I wouldn't go over 4.3-4 for a day-to-day..needs too much juice.
If you want to push to see how high..crank up the cpu/nb just for clocks..it will be unstable but..get higher clocks.3300-3400Mhz ph34r-smiley.gif

We'll see how high we can go.
I've posted some info about the waterblocks in the Sabertooth forum.

Does anyone else with this chip get CPU spikes in BF3?

I've been mostly getting them on metro, and barely at all on bigger maps.

They occur once every other second, I can't remember if it was always like this but it's really annoying me as of now.

I'm using official 12.2, maybe I should downgrade?

Also, before upgrading how bad were the spikes? mine don't go off the chart or anything like that but there pretty close. (and by chart I mean render.perfoverlayvisible 1 chart).

Not at all, locked or unlocked. I'm running a 560 Ti alongside.

When and if it starts throttling if it gets too hot, the computer will just shut off.

It has froze up a couple of times, but i don't think it was power supply related since I just recently got a new cooler master 650, and it has done it on both old and new. I really think  it is the mosfets throttling the system back now that I think about it. Thanks guys, I at least have something I can start with.

If it just freezes, give it time and it will BSOD - meaning, unstable OC.

My 960T would not allow me to unlock either of the two cores and the A880GZ does not support overclocking frown.gif This is the first time I've been unsuccessful. I wish I had known that this motherboard did not support multiplier overclocking, I would have picked another one. I wouldn't mind normally, but I had hoped to fold on this puppy 24/7. It's much less useful for that task now, pulling 4.5-5.5K PPD. I'm not 100% convinced that it's the CPU to blame, it could be the motherboard. BSOD at Windows loading screen regardless of voltage/settings after additional cores have been enabled.

I'll post pictures and cpu-z's and such soon smile.gif
