AM2 X2 3800+ Over 3GHz?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Has anyone gotten an AM2 X2 3800 (Windsor Core) to run over 3GHz and still be stable? If so, how? I've only gotten mine up to 2.8GHz without problems.

Its posible but not likly. What voltage are you running? Its unlikly due to heat but possible. Thats a decent overclock for that chip

I could not get mine past 2.7 stable but I think if I had the cooling to give it an extra few volts I might have been able to see 3.0. You should reference your stepping to see what others have done with there chips of the same stepping.

Well You could probablly push it but is it windsor and produces much more heat. If it was brisbane I would say 3.0 is possible but not sure about windsor.

My educated guess is no.

Yeah, I'm gonna leave it @ 2.8, tried 3.0 at 1.5v, and Windows BSOD'd. Unless I can find another way to get it up there.

Windsor is 90nm no? if it is, i would expect it to be very hard to push past 2.8-2.9Ghz...the brisbane 3600 is always a cheap ticket to 3+ghz

The Windsors will go to 3 stable but it takes REALLY good cooling and lots of volts.
