For Sale:
Overclock and Unlocked COMBO!! Phenom II X2 550 + Gigabyte 790X-UD4P + RAM

Will Ship To: US48

For sale are components from my old rig (pre-Intel, see sig).

This particular Phenom X2 was one of the few stable AND overclockable CPUs when unlocked. Unlocked, this becomes a quad core "B50" (See Sign for CPU-Z Proof).

I overclocked this to 3.71 GHz. It is stable for 12 hours of prime 95 and 12 hours of OCCT. Used at this clock speed for 2 years (with phenom msr twker to lower voltage and clock while idle or low load, limiting the voltage during use).

Also includes the motherboard that it was used to overclock with, AND the RAM which, which was also present during operation. (A lot of phenoms became unstable with all 4 slots occupied while being OC-ed. this one DID NOT.)

This is a fair price for a pretty good piece of kit. Great for parents wanting to teach their kids the basics of overclocking, and perhaps a super charged HTPC!

See my sig for FSB and clock settings for 3.71. Obviously people have different luck or change all sorts of settings in the BIOS that may affect stability. It can be achieved but I'm not making any guarantees. Read the Phenom OCing guide for more information. I pulled the board with the OC in place, but obviously things might get reset while it's out and not plugged in to anything (CMOS). I would reset the BIOS before attempting replicate the overclock. This was also paired with a H50 (not included)

It was a great build but my friend sold me my current i7 for a great price. I'm almost hesitant to let it go since I have a Phenom I 7750 based HTPC I'd rather replace with this. Not in any rush to sell.

There is one quirk about this motherboard. Once in a blue moon (once a month?) when powering on the computer it would turn off before it could POST. You have to unplug the PSU, wait, and plug it back in to power it up. I believe this is due to the BIOS and the overclock. I even RMAed the Corsair tx750w that was powering it because of that and used a different PSU that still exhibited the same problem (and so did the new Corsair).

Contiguous US only.

Thanks!

Shoot I remembered the H50 bracket is pretty much adhered to the underside of the board. I'll need to look for the original. redface.gif

Roughly every 2 years.
