Your motherboard only has 6plus2 phase control. That really is considered inadequate for a 4.7 GHZ over clock. I do think you are playing with fire. Glad you made the most of what you had, but don't be surprised if it crashes and burns somewhere down the road. I am not trying to scare you ,but simply point out that 6+2 phase control is not optimal at all. Don't take my word for it. Look at dozens of other posts on this forum about this issue by people who are more expert than me. I am not saying you have 2 upgrade both motherboard and case tight now. I would save up for the motherboard first, and then later down the road consider upgrading to a larger, better case. Good luck and I am happy for you that you are skilled at making the best of less than optimal hardware. Your overclock of 4.7 GHZ is excellent under the conditions you have. I suspect that your chip is from a better than average batch. Do you have the batch number from the chip?? Mine is 1236.

6+2 is fine. Granted its not 8+2 but for you to say its inadequate is just wrong.

On my inferior 6+2 board ive hit 5ghz with no trouble at all. Temps are great at 55C full load. I do have a small spot fan that keeps the Nb heatsink nice and cool even under load.

Crashes and burns? lol i was running 4.8ghz for a few months on air with no problems at all.

true.. its about quality and temps and how clean of power they provide. 6+2 can perform as well as a 8+2 but 8+2 has potential for better power delivery and cooler temps

now.... Im proud of me I hit the BIG 5.0! my chip now burns the track like the great old american muscle mustang!





AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Yes 8+2 has betetr power delivery and cooler temps im not disputing that.

I was disputing his theory 6+2 is inadequate for 4.7ghz lol totally wrong. I think the guy has the same board as me and i know how good it is wink.gif

Gratz on the big 5.0 too biggrin.gif i went the other way and did a 304fsb and lower multi

I was lucky that the case i got came with some good fans and has good air flow.

I got the bug and im now thinking of what to buy next hmmmm the possibilities are endless lol

Second gfx card or UV lights and tubing

Dont want to upgrade mobo in case next cpu's arent am3+ theres always that possibility isnt there.

there is but AMD has already stated that they are not working on a new socket.. Steamroller will be on AM3+ but that is the final one.. but they may update the chipset..
