X2 555 Unlocked to X4 vs X4 965 BE - Page 2

post #11 of 15
i think all you need are those heatsinks and some cable management, which should be easy with that case. give it half-hour of tlc.

Thank you for your advice.

the figures in the screenie were based on single player campaign.

Hmm interesting, I have a 565 BE unlocked to B65 and overclocked to (4.4)4.3 stable using AMD Overdrive.Looking up the details in Speccy I realized only 2 cores are at 4.3 and the other 2 are @ 3.4
Wouldn't the 965 have overclocked all 4 cores yes? or am I doing something wrong? Manually I couldn't get past 3.8 so I just let AOD do it for me.

I think it's not worth it. The difference would be minimal. There's no guarantee the new 965 BE would overclock beyond 4 GHz.

Try overclocking CPU/NB instead (if you haven't already).

In regards to throttling, I kind of doubt that's happening (since I have a similar setup and never had it happen), but you can run HWINFO32 while playing BF3 and make it output Core 0, Core 1, etc. frequency as graph. Then you would see if it throttles down.

Out of curiosity, what voltage are you using at 3.9 GHz?

Sorry for my late response.

I'm running the CPU 3.9Ghz at 1.4375V and a bit higher on the NB (not sure out of my head).
