Any chance anyone here is from Washington seattle area that would be cool with testing my chip in there system?
Jump on your cbr600 and I'll get my R1 out and you can meet me half way....Road trip!!!

-Phenom II 940
-CPU stepping CACVC AC 0851APMW
-Revision RB-C2
-3700Mhz, 18.5x 200Mhz
-CPU voltage 1.5V
-CPU-NB voltage 1.25V
-NB 1800Mhz 1.25V
-HTT 1800Mhz 1.25V
-MSI DKA790GX
-BIOS 1.6
-Coolermaster V8

Looks like I've hit the wall at 3.7, no matter what i do it crashes as soon as I start Prime95
I don't know who to blame - me being stupid, bad chip or mobo?
I also don't feel comfortable to overvolt my CPU over 1.5V.

nevermind again. I'm not posting settings until I get at least 24 hrs stable and can run Supreme Commander for at least four hours

For a quad you need the Freezone Elite.

I just bought one on Ebay (waiting for the damn seller to send it, but he's not responding to my mails) so I hope I can get my hands on it soon.
Those Elites are hard to come by here in Europe

Will probable add a res. and 240rad to cool down the water before it gets cooled down again Maybe then I'll be able to hit 4.0 or even more

@ emersonsc: I think you're having bad luck with that chip . I can hardly imagine it's the board fooki'n up the OC... I own the very same board....
its the least i can get out of this damn bias country..as i have said earlier i had my chip shipped here..its the only damn thing i can get since the phenom 2's here are still rare..and also to mention limited..

Was playing around on my Gigabyte M-750SLi-DS4 w/ my other Phenom II 940, I wanted to find the Max Stable CPU Frequency (known as Bus Speed).

Well I found it




This not my Destroyer Build, this is my other PH II Build

Normally I run this chip @3.9ghz

The Stepping is:

CACVC AC 0852GPDW

It's probably safer to volt to 1.5250v or 1.5500v on your board since the MSIs are known not to overvolt during loads (whereas all other boards manufacturer's 790SB boards tend to).

Depends what your load temp is with large FFTs though.

Its so frustrating to watch all you guys do so good Im so lost on my chip even when I set my Vcore to auto in bios it loads up 1.43 like my chip needs alot of volts to just run stock. I dont know whats up with that maybe its the board.

you think you're the only 1 sucked up on this chip??i'm gonna go nuts on this one..:swearing: i already purchased a peltier cooling kit just to give the 4Ghz hit a shot..isn't that more frustrating??:swearing:

the hardest i can get out this chip is 3.977Ghz is that soooo close to hit 4Ghz..:swearing:

Dude you got 3.9................. I cant even get 3.5 stable have not tried 3.4 cuz its not good enough. I'm trying to think of a way to rma it just have not came up with one yet plus i have no back up chip anymore.
post #1430 of 2829
yeah i think we should start a group of people who are all having OC issues with our 940s and then get with AMD about this. I've had enough. I spent top dollar on yet another dud chip. They gloried up the 9950 and that was a dud. THEN they actually ADVERTISED this as being an overclocker and said the chip can get to 4ghz on air, and yet SO many of us cant get better than 3.4ghz. Im sorry but i at least got 3.3 out of my 9850, a 700mhz increase. A 400mhz increase out of a premium chip is unacceptable. And the fact that they boast the dragon plat-form as being the best suit for this chip (790FX-NB SB750, ATI 4000 series vid cards) is sad in it self. While some are getting good results, the majority are not. And its not like just people with the ASUS boards are having issues. There are others out there with MSI and Foxconn and so on that are having the same issue we are. I really think we need to start a thread and get as MANY people as we can to join it then see what AMD will do for the people who got suckered into yet another AMD flop. I dont want my money back. I want what i paid for, and thats a chip that can perform what it was advertised to do.

By the way, my rig is h2o cooled, and still nothing stable over 3.6 in 32bit or 3.4 in 64bit. I've replaced everything but the mobo and chip itself. I will not dump any more money replacing parts.
