It's interesting tho because my board usually only keeps the chip fed with 1.408v even while running at %100 load. I do have my bios set to "liberal" though with respect to voltage variance(s) allowed; which helps.
Hey guy, you know 62c is what AMD recommends for max and 70c is what I read off of the chip in Linux, right? You are going to degrade that chip pretty quickly if you keep that up.
Ashura, the new banner is awesome. It looks like a modified AMD logo, and I like it.
So, has anyone been into the 5ghz+ range and gotten 3.something as a result in IBT with AVX? I just tried for 5.1ghz with multiplier only with 1.65vcore and that's what it took to actually get a number besides the -1#IND0 thing, but it wasn't the right number and my RS 360 was overwhelmed at those voltages, to say the least.
Also, I stumbled on another thread in a different forum (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to other forums), where they found this thread and linked to us regarding the PLL thing we all uncovered. They found out it only seemed to help if you have analog VRMs, which is kind of ironic considering everyone gets all excited for digital, yet you can wiggle some bonus head room out of your overclock or lower vcore if you have analog.
For anyone interested, the UD5 only goes up to 2.795v for PLL and I gave 2.75v (yes, I'm in the red zone, so brave!) a shot and it didn't seem to help for 3.something in IBT AVX @ 5ghz, even at 1.6v. But I'm running 4.9ghz at 1.55v right now and completely IBT AVX stable with much lower temps.
I don't know if I degraded this chip and if that's causing that crazy temp/voltage wall or not. I was running 1.6vcore for a while and temps in upper 60c with thermal throttling all disabled. So, if I'm the only one experiencing this, it only takes a few months of 1.55v+ and 62c+ temps to degrade your chip. Unless it's just a universal wall.
If anyone with the cooling to pull off 1.6v wants to do just a single loop of IBT with AVX and tell me if they can get a 3.something result at 5ghz+, I'd appreciate it. It'd be awesome if they had a 1236 like I do too.
I'm just doing multiplier overclock, so if anyone wants to check to see if things get ugly after 1.55v and/or 5ghz when it comes to getting back 3.something as a result in IBT AVX I would really appreciate if they did so and they just used a multiplier overclock.
Maybe scaling takes a complete dump after 1.55v and that's why AMD calls 1.55v max, or maybe I'm killing my chip? I don't know and I don't care if I'm killing it, but if I am, I would at least like some help verifying that under the conditions I put my chip under it did degrade. If I take this 1236 down I at least want some good information out of it that I can share with everyone. To just toss it away would be a waste. But if I am killing it I can at least milk it out for a while and then try delidding it later.
