Hey guys! I've had a chance to mess around with my processor more, and my old motherboard would only allow me to get to 3.25 GHz stable. I'm now at 3.35 GHz stable, and I can hit 3.4, the only problem being heat. My current Asus Arctic Square is fine for stock and OCing, but I've bitten the bullet and ordered a new heatsink. Since I'm planning on upgrading to a Phenom II in April anyway, I might as well see how far I can take this chip with a TRUE 120 extreme /w 2 fans in a push-pull setup
This is what I'm at with the Arctic Square:
3) 3.350 GHz
5) HTT 5x
6) Ran Orthos for 2 hours with no issues, good enough for now.
7) Idle is 37-40, max temp under 100% load was 61 C.
8) Asus Arctic Square

My mobo is a little strange in that I can only change the bus speed by 2 mhz at a time instead of one, and it'll change to fractions of mhz as you see. Oh well, it's stable.
I know my temperatures are high, but the TRUE should get here on Tuesday or Wednesday and the chip can take it. I'll update later once I get everything installed, I'm expecting a nice dip from the start as the TRUE will come lapped Edited by JadedFloridian - 2/2/09 at 12:48am
