cool news guys http://www.theguiltygeek.com/index.php?article=1557 x3 740. im betting it has the new imc from the 965 which will be very nice for me and my am3, will have to pick one up for testing
Don't know anyone at AMD but wish I did.
The run was a pure attempt for max clockspeed with limited voltage applied. I'm sure if I could improve my cooling for it, it would go even higher but the stock Opty cooler has it's limitations. Of course some fine tuning was required to get things "Just Right" for the run once I started. If you'll check the 939 Appreciation thread (Roster link), you'll see I've had similar results with my 939 system.
Guys, I'll just come out and say it; Don't try it with one of these coolers unless you know what you are doing and have what's needed to get it done without toasting the chip.
I've already wounded my RAM doing these runs and need to replace it with another set soon. That's why my RAM speed was so low - Having to run it at the lowest divider possible so the machine will run without locking up.
I'm looking to go WC'ing with it one day and perhaps getting a really nice result once I do.
Need to find a good block for it and something for the MB as well.
There have been a few motherboards replaced in the past few months here in our club. If you look back through the post, we have had a pretty high rate compared to our # of members, I am sure some of these were burned up on purpose, well you know they knew better but didnt care if they burned it up. So your warnings should be well noted. Its not hard to burn up a board. Usually the mobo and ram go first, pretty easy. I have seen cpus last through some conditions, i just couldnt believe it. But that doesnt mean they always will. Its a real danger when pushing these OCing results, so to all be carefull!
