FX-4100 results and temps. Am I safe?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I managed to get my FX-4100 up to 4.2GHz (20.5X) with a FSB: 2200MHz. After about an hour of P95 the temperatures never went beyond 44c using stock CPU cooler, HAF 922 case with added 200m intake fan on the side. Am I safe with this chip, and these temps after an hour of P95? (These temp readings are coming from CPUID Hardware Monitor).

Also. In the BIOS the CPU voltages were around 1.42 I believe (stock settings), but in CPU-Z at max load x 20.5 the voltages are only reading 1.356. Will this be an issue?

EDIT: Core Temp says VID: 1.4125 and CPU-Z says Core Voltage: 1.356. Shouldnt they read the same voltage on the CPU?

Those temps and voltages are perfectly fine. I would run Prime95 a little longer (maybe 2 hours) just to make sure your stable. Have you tried lowering Vcore or just left it at stock voltage?

As far as the CPU-Z, it's most likely v droop under load, which is normal. Also, depending on your motherboard, some like to run more vcore than selected in the BIOS, and some run under.

ie. Set Vcore in BIOS to 1.4v and you end up with 1.425 actual volts going to the CPU or 1.4v in the BIOS and get 1.375v etc.

If its stable and under 70C (being the 4100) then its fine what ever the voltage is.
By FSB im guessing your meaning NB since FSB would be more like 200-300 range.

Personally Id be trying for higher with a bit more voltage since you have plenty of head room with the heat.

Yes the NB, my mistake. What would you recommend I bump it up to? Also I didnt change the voltages my self I just left them stock, If Prime95 proves stable should I just leave them be? Seems the other day when I upped the voltage manually the computer didnt want to boot until I reverted the voltage settings.

I wouldn't raise Vcore until you absolutely need to. IMO, If you want to stay at 4.2ghz, I would try lowing Vcore while staying stable in Prime. On the other hand, If you want to stay at stock voltage I would just keep bumping speed until Prime fails.

Is Core VID and VCORE the same thing? I dont think I saw an option to tweak the VCORE. I saw voltage adjustments for Core VID and NB VID

Also, if after a few more hours Prime95 has not failed and my temps seem ok then do I really need to adjust anything at all to stay at a safe 4.2?

Yes, VID is Vcore or voltage. If prime doesn't fail and you can still do your normal stuff (ie, gaming, video editing, folding etc) then I would say no adjustments are required. Btw, 4.2ghz Is a nice OC thumb.gif

Thanks. This is my first OC and really all i did was raise the multiplier to 20.5X and the NB from 2000MHz to 2200MHz and here I am. Trying to get the most efficient settings though.

If its stable you dont need any more voltage. But you will soon since your getting to 4.2-4.3ghz range

What voltage would be required to bump it to say 4.2GHz? Also would that be the Core VID voltage that I bump?
