So how well do the Phenom IIs run in the board? Are there any benchmarks?

Hiya guys,

N2Gaming: check it out. OCCT stable for over 30 minutes only. I also put in the Sunbeam and changed out the two front fans. I think for now this will do me ok, it is not the 3.0 but close enough for nuclear hand grenades. I tried to get closer to 1000 but over 215 it errored out fast. I'll see how my vmwares run before I do any more work.

Good job. Keep trying other settings. I know it's a pain staking task but that is overclocking for you. Trial and error is the name of the game. I'm curiouse why you are using a 1/2 multi instead of a whole number like 13 or 12

Why would the half multiplier matter? Maybe I am not thinking tonight...lol.

Here is a question for anyone...Would running DDR2 1066 over DDR2 800 allow to set to 800 ddr2 in my settings runnng the PHII 940 on the board instead of 667? And would it really make a noticable difference in performance? I am don't think with the PHII 940 I can hit much over 250 FSB. But would the extra memory speed really help that much? I have the opportunity to sell my ram and could for very little more get ddr2 1066.

I would say go for it and let us know how it turns out for you. You will definately be able to hit a fsb of 250 while using DDR1066 vs using DDR800

Hope this helps,

I think the board will also matter in the FSB you can get. Have you singled out the board yet and found out what the board limit is yet?

I doubt if the DDR2 setting is going to help that much versus the DDR2-setting. But It will help for sure. As OC-ers we are pushing the limits of all components. So It's worth a shot.

If you can get DDR2-1066 RAM for little extra money then that's always a good idea, but I wouldn't expect miracles performancewise!

Ya srsly. According to this chart posted by CWell1337, your "RAM divider" works out to be the same with a 13x or 14x multiplier. The RAM will be forced to fire a bit faster but will remain perfectly proportional to CPU freq.

If you increase your mult, you may be able to get more MHz out of your CPU. That's usually the case IME, so check it out.

Before you increase your mult, you may have to back off a bit on your RAM (or on your FSB "base speed"), if your RAM is the "bottleneck", or cause of your overclocking threshold.

Hope this helps.

The chart applies to the AM2 processors. I'm not sure if this chart applies to the AM2+ and the am3 processors, since they have a different memory controller. So use with caution!

Better be sure and search a bit more on the specific AM2+ and AM3 memory frequencies.

Hi guys - been following this thread with interest and have now got myself a new Phenom II X3 720 BE to install in my M2N32-SLI Deluxe. I'm gonna install it tonight. Already flashed bios to 2101 and cleared down the overclocked FSB so hopefully it should just be a matter of dropping the new chip into the socket....

I reckon AMD (and Asus) have done a fantastic job if an AM3 cpu can run on an AM2 board. Great upgrade path.

Anyway, if you don't hear from me again you can assume it didn't work out and I killed my board or something!!

Well with my X2 5000BE I was able to get to a 300fsb and 1500ht. Ran that stable for well over a year. Only change now was the CPU to a PHII 940. Now I can't hit over 250FSB stable. I don't think there really will be that much 'real world' difference if I got to 1066 ram, but If I can pick it up for an extra $20 after selling my 800 ram, why not I guess. I would like to be able to set my ram in the BIOS to 800 at least insead of 667. Right now my memory is only running at 805, which before I had at 1020. (GSkill DDR2 800, 4x1gb)
