Journey to 4.0Ghz with Phenom II 955

post #1 of 116
Thread Starter 
I just recently migrated to a new case and feel my temps dropped a few degrees. I have better cable management and am ready to see this 955 fly. I just ran an Intel Burn test since its easier to use than Prime95, and my max temp was 53C w/ the setting at High. I'll upload a screenshot:

338



My current CPU settings is everything stock except I have the multiplier for 3.6Ghz. I believe it is 18 or so. I just need some help setting the NB and SB voltages and stuff appropriately.

I have a GIGABYTE 990XA-UD3 by the way.
FSB is 200Mhz

Thanks

You have to OC the CPU/NB --> as high as you can(2800-3000)
Keep NB and SB voltages on AUTO. You have to bump the CPU/NB voltage.
OCing the CPU/NB will increase the core temps(they are on the high side already), so its better if you try something like 3.8GHz for CPU and 2800 for CPU/NB
Test with P95-blend. Intelburn is useless if you OC the CPU/NB

I also applied some Arctic Cooling MX-2 when I migrated.

What about FSB? My temps aren't good either?

hold on... you hit 53'C @ 3.6GHz? I thought @ 4GHz. In this case you need a better cooler
I use to run the FSB @ 240-250,

Damnit. I have a CoolIT ECO and replaced the pre-applied TIM with some MX-2.....
