EAT IT AMD!!! FINALLY 4GHZ ON 965!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So ever since I got my 965 with my 790XTA I could NEVER hit 4ghz on it. it always capped out at 3.9 no matter what I did. Well I needed a massive push to volts to get 4.0 on my new board below buuut my cpu cooler wouldn't keep it below 65C. So I tried messing with the FSB, got 4009MHz stable!!! 1.5V and the FSB is at..uh... I think 211?

Congrats. Now your only 1GHz behind a OC'ed Piledriver. LOL

I hate messing with FSB. Left my 960T at 3.9GHz for that very reason smile.gif

Not that crap again.


No, not as fast. The IPC may be lower but it's not that low. Not to mention memory bandwidth and HT link speed etc.
