core unlocking phenom ii 560 - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Yea, not all boards will have the same results. Just sink those VRM's and start tweaking. I had a 1090T at 3.8ghz on a GigaByte GA-MA785G-UD3H before I knew about VRM's and such... scares me to think that I ran it like that even for just a few short months/weeks. But it never had a hiccup and my temps were acceptable. My mobo got a bit hot obviously... but I had no sinks and just a fan on it...

Notice how stock coolers are laying down flat? They pull cooler air down over the heatsink, which then moves outwards and cools the VRM's. When you switch to a tower cooler, you remove this vital airflow cooling your VRM's. So with lower end boards, especially non sinked boards, you will need to add a fan and point it at the VRM's. My board is sinked, but I still have a 92mm fan blowing across my VRM's with my H50 installed.

No clue sorry... Never put sinks on VRM's before, now I just buy boards that are sinked since I know a bit more. If its sitting snug and tight, and it has screws/clips to keep the sink down, it should be fine... If they don't have screws/clips and are just being placed on the VRM's, you'd need tape/pads. Without screws/clips keeping the sinks in place, they won't make good contact, there would likely be too much space between sink and VRM's, and it could shift/move. Not 100% sure, but thats my impression.

OK then, I'd watch the tmpin1 temp when overclocking and take off around 7C to be safe. Basically I'd go with 70C on the TMPIN1 temp as your max safe. If it gets there I'd shut it down and back it off a little.

but max safe temp for phenom ii 560 is 70c..shouldnt i take it till 77c then?
post #20 of 23
63C is AMD's recommended max safe temp. That doesnt mean the CPU will self destruct at 63.1C but its still a good limit to go by IMO. Id rather give up a couple extra MHz as opposed to grenading my proc. wink.gif
