I'm using Vista 64 and couldn't even hit 3.6 with 1.5V. I can probaly get somewhere between 3.5 and 3.6 GHz...

I'm on Vista x64 and I've finally managed to get it Prime95 stable at 3.7 GHz. Wasn't easy though, had to lap both the cpu and the cooler.

Hmmm seems the phenom II isn't all that 64bit friendly either. Although to be fair it's ALOT better then agenda on 64bit

it seems so. last night i could post and bench at 3.8. but prime and occt would fail instantly. im hoping we all get new bios updates to make our new toys more friendly. but im not gonna complain. the 940 at stock speeds scored like 700 points higher than my tricore at 3.2 GHZ. im testing 3.7 GHZ right now with an 18x206 multiplier at 1.472 volts. hopefully all works out.
ummmm. stuff

Both my Vista and Linux are 64-bit. I should use 32-bit OCNix from a LiveCD and use it just for high OCs and a little benchmarking. Maybe I'm stressing the SB with 3 SATA drives, I don't know for sure. But I tried raising every voltage other than NB - PCI-E link, and tried clocking the NB and HT links below 1500 MHz, but it just didn't want to do 3.8. Maybe time for water or something.

No money.

Edit: interesting note. Something I'm going to have 'fun' playing around with, wondering if i can get this OCCT stable. It loaded Deadspace, RA3, played for five minutes to see if it would crash. Also posting with this clock atm, however I doubt anyone would have such a high OC if their NB freq sucked, would hurt game performance (have not tried maxing my NB yet). Note: this has NOT been tested for stability yet with occt/prime, and it'll most probably crash... but its useable @ 3.92, 1.4v, which is interesting.
Just read that and saw the CPU-Z link That's ridiculous! Nice work!!

I'm in the process of doing all the updates... started at the beginning to get the extra HTT info, just got to this post... so about 6-7 pages left, then it'll get the update. THEN I get to hook up and external drive and save a bunch of stuff off this system and start disassembling... then start building the new one. Don't think it will be operational until tomorrow, based on available time, leak testing, OS install, etc. Plus I have to move some stuff around in the apartment... the ex is (finally) moving out this weekend, so my office that turned into a very cramped office/bedroom will now just be a bedroom, and the "office" will go out into the living room, which includes the computers. Its amazing what is deemed acceptable in a living room by either men or women... my new roommate, one of my best friends, is all about having three computers (one is a server) in the living room with the XBOX and all that jazz (this shouldn't surprise), but the ex would have had a heart attack if I asked to do something like that. Don't be surprised if I give her a boot in the butt on the way out

Anyway, bare with me the next couple days... updates will be fewer, with possible long gaps, but they will come. So keep posting updates! And nice work Drin!
