Phenom 9500 and 790FX chipset... what to expect?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey I just built a system from:

Phenom 9500
MSI K9A2 Platinum w/ 790FX chipset
8GB G.Skill RAM @ 800 Mhz

Primarily, I wanted to know what i could push the processor to with very efficient air cooling, and how much higher i could go if i were to get it water cooled. As far as i can tell, no one on any other site really has any idea yet.

Someone else has a thread about ocing their 9500, and from what i saw it isn't too much. I'll see if I can find that link!
EDIT: I found the thread

if you watch the video from amd overdrive ... the amd dude on the video jus overclocked his phenom 9500 from 2.2 to 3 ghz and was showing it stable
cpu clock multiplier for all 4 cores at 14x from 11x
htt freq at 215 from 200
pci ex at 120
mem speed 430 mhz from 400
this is coming from the technical marketing manager for amd
and what he is claimin to say as long as you got the spider platform which is a phenom proc a 790 fx xhipset motherboard and RV670 graphic cards .. amd overdrive has some options to really overclock your cpu and make sure its stable.. all on the same app
and you got 3 ghz stable without touching cores (Obvious to say efficient cooling would be needed)
spider platform ftw ..
