So in general from 45 chips that were counted the average chip is indeed a decent OC'er.


Would it be possible to get Pics of all your bios settings? or maybe you list them?


Your load temp is what i am getting on air when running 1.47-1.5V
its advertised to hit 3.9-4.0ghz on AIR... remove watercooling from that equation.

My temps are a little high because my heat is constantly running. My furnace is old and ****ty and it turns on and off alot and my desk is close to the vent, i have no way around that. I also noticed this chip ran hot from the very begining. Even in my other case in another home, it ran warmer than what others are posting both at stock and OC.

Again, my voltages are:

cpu = 1.43
cpu-nb=1.3
HT=1.28
mem=2.18

I Give Up


For the last time it's advertised up to 3.9 on air....Not that it will do 3.9 on air...It's a big difference.


Anyways about your Phone call.... If you read any warranties On the Box/at the end of the Original Video/ on there website they do in fact state they do not condone overclocking /nor do they warranty....When we do overclock, it's at our own RISK.

Well thats a pretty contradicting statement givin that they were the hosts of a OVERCLOCKING SHOW to showplace their new processors. THATS what im trying to get at. The fact that they contradict their own actions with those statements. Oh, we dont condone it! no way! Ok then, why did you support, host a party proving, and adverstise that its highly capable? You cant do one thing and say something else. You cant say Do as i say not as i do, or in their case, do as we say NOW but not as we did yesterday or do tomorrow.

kk, I got a Xigmatek 1283 with Ultra Kaze 120mm in place of my Phenom ii stock cooler and a Asus Radeon 4870 1G grpahics card. Temps are much lower, Im talking 10C lower. So I am back to reaching a new high from 3.755Ghz. So far Ive been trying gsk3rd's setup 18.5 x 210. 1.525v on the core, 1.30v CPU-NB, and 1.30 HT volts. Same MB M3A79-T. My core temps never exceed 52C but after 3 mins of OCCT standard I get a BSOFD. Now that I have more efficient cooling I am wondering what I am missing. There something else I need to jack up to find stability here? With my stock cooler i found stability at max 62C. Now I am 10C lower, why cant I reach higher? What is preventing my stability now? Pre-thanks to those interested in helping..

Just talked to AMDs RMA department. They claim once you change the multiplier even in BE CPUs, you void the warranty. FYI for anyone who didnt know.

Ok,

Try raising your NB voltage 1.37v-1.4v and give it a whirl
