What will it take to get my 4400+ to 3.0GHz?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I need great cooling. I've gotten to 2.6GHz, easily, and very stable, but it was 60C LOAD. Way too hot. My cooling is mostly, if not all, stock. My heatsink doesn't work well, it's the ASUS Cube. I will be buying the ThermalTake MozartTx case.

Basically what I need to know is are there any other case options for the perfect cooling, any heatsink options, and for later on when I have the money how about watercooling. I can get to 3.0GHz. There are no walls in my way right now, just heat.

Unless you have a blessed stepping you may not reach 3G
A premium HSF like a Tuniq Tower or the Big Typhoon would behoove the cooling issue.

I'd work the method in the link to determine your posibilities...

Check the stepping in the AMD CPU Data Base and @ amdgeeks.com to get a fix on it's potential.

Hmm, thanks. I guess 2.6ghz is the absolute highest I CAN get. I guess I maxed out.

Sometimes less vcore is more OC... you don't always need a lot of voltage, just the right amount.

It is possible to get atleast 2.8ghz on the 4400, though, right? Alexisd did it.

Oh, and thanks for the help.

According to alot of people, my motherboard is considered a great overclocker. Stock cooling, it runs 324mhz. So the mobo wouldn't bottleneck anything.

2.7-2.8 is the max for that chip, unless, like someone said above you have a very good chip.

I remember a while back a guy on here had is 4200 x2 at 3.1 ghz!
