Overclocking on 78lmt-s2p

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys new member here. I've been searching around and there are a few threads on this topic but none mention the older 78lmt-s2p which is a 4+1 phase board with low rds. The website indicates a max of 140w capable so what speed does that roughly equate to on a fx-6100?

I've had it running on 4ghz for the past year now with no problems and I want to try and push it a little more with better cooling as I'm still using stock. Anybody here have any experience with rev3.1 boards?

Ok I've pushed it to 4.2ghz now with no problems so far. I might be asking for trouble though as I'm still using the stock heatsink.

Is anyone else having success over clocking on the stock heatsink?

ok so not much interest in this haha
Just an update for anyone who was interested.
I ended up winding it back to stock clocks. I ran into some stability issues after about 2 hours+usage at 4.2ghz.
I didn't really notice a difference between stock turbo 3.6ghz and oc 4ghz for what im using this PC for. It was not throttling back to my knowledge under oc.

If i were using this system as my main PC i would most likely have got a better cooler, making sure it blows down onto the VRMs as the stock cooler gets very noisy. Hope this helps anyone using an FX processor on a 760g mobo.
