3.12 Ghz for 250$

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Do youself a favor and get this chip while they last if your gonna go AM2.
It does 2.8Ghz with 1.39, 3Ghz with 1.44 vcore and 3.12 with 1.52vcore. Anymore than that and system wont post even with 1.6 vcore. This DFI 590 board is pretty slammin too.... allows me to hit even better speeds and tighter timings with the ram. Using 2.36 vdimm to run it at speed in picture.

Make that 3.14 Ghz. This DFI board has allowed me to juice the most of my cpu and ram. At 4,4,3,4@1048Mhz, this corsair ram is hitting 11k+ in bandwidth. Yeeha!

AMDx2 4800AM2@3.14Ghz From what I have seen these chips at stock clock settings Preform better than a E6300 but not better than a E6400.

That is a lot of juice and a high frequency for such a low temperature. If it is correct that is kick ass, but I think there might be some reporting error with speedfan. Just check to see what your temperatures are in your bios, or try another temperature monitoring application to double check things. I would hate to see your fry that sweet unit.

Run SuperPi 1M and 32M if you can, I bet you would get some wicked ass times that would give a Core 2 Duo system a run for its money.

No mas for this cpu unfortunately. Even if i take vcore to 1.65 it locks up first line of post screen and I gotta cmos reset if i try 288x11 or 266x12. Oh well, im real happy with 714 mhz OC. From what I've read even the fx62 doesnt go much more than 100 or 200 Mhz tops over this.

It may be off by a few degrees, but I was using same reading with my zalman 9500 prelapping, I was getting 55C at the core. I tried everest but it gives reading of 0 on this mobo(what else can i use?). The Scythe Ninja, lapping and coollabs liquid metal def worked some magic!

Gonna DL superpi after I let this prime95 run a bit at at 314 with 1.52 vcore.

Yea Thats a Nice Overclock. Your CPU will give C2Ds a run for there money. And I know your CPU would be running faster than mine is.

I also changed case to the nine hundred and put in 4 Silverstone FM121's in there, when I put the ninja in.....so I was expecting good results but that core temp blows my mind.

Edit : Heres a shot I just took now with Fans on high speed. And those superpi scores....I'll have to do 32m when I have some more time.
