4170 Highest stable OC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I've been experimenting with the 4170 chip and thus far the highest stable OC I got was 4.73 just using the multiplyer.

It doesn't seem to like editing the HT at-all so it stayed at 200!

I'm curious to see other people's results so please post here!

Many thanks,

James

The stock cooker is a pile of.....

I must admit I got the 4170 and was really unimpressed - it barely outperformed my old phenom 2 965 which was somewhat disappointing and I had a very hard time getting a stable over clock out of it unless I pushed some very high voltages through it. Best stable I got from it was 4.7, and to be honest it didn't perform at even that clock as well as I would have hoped. If your after a cheap 4ghz chip then it's ok. But cheap is the operative word so bear that in mind. I eventually decided to send it back and switch to an i7 CPU - should be here on Wednesday and I can't wait! smile.gif
