Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 117

post #1161 of 2829
I hate to ask this because I sound like I don't believe you all but how many of these 3.9GHZ + Overclocks are actually prime stable? The reason i ask is my 940 won't go over 3.5 Prime Stable, but I can boot into and use windows up to 4.2GHZ.

I have tried everything from Higher volts to lowering Ram and NB speeds. I have rasied every voltage there is, it just isn't prime stable.

With overclocking YMMV. Each computer will be different due to different components. You could have a bum chip or mobo.

Wheth4400, did you completely rule out your memory by lowering the divider (running a lower frequency)? Have you tried just one stick of memory?

Good luck

try raising the NB core voltage to 1.3v. you might also try raising the CPU-NB voltage to 1.3 or 1.35v. i don't have any proof that it works, but i tried to do some (inconclusive) testing and it looked like upping those voltages a tad helped.

and excellent job to everyone on there OC's.

Thlnk3r how many CPU's have you seen me OC on these boards? 4 now? Of course I have tried those, my board shouldn't be fubar'd and nor my CPU. I just don't see how we have so many with over 3.8GHZ OC's and they are all Prime Stable.

they aren't. unless they post up some kind of proof, it's usually just the highest they can boot into windows and take a CPU-Z shot of.

Your water cooling isn't cold enough!
What are your temp with Prime? OCCT and Prime raises "Heat".
PH2 loves colder temps and low voltage.
Most shots are for highest clock they could get.

I'm glad I didn't buy the mb you have, looks like it sucks for the price.
My Prime and OCCT stable clock is 4.2+ghz 24/7.
