Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 181

post #1801 of 2829
I've gotten mines running 3.7GHZ 1.42V 12Hrs+ Prime stable, I've also tried to get it to 3.8GHZ seems stable at 1.47V, the problem is this ***** heats up too much .. I don't know whats up.. I have an Antec Nine Hundred Case and Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer 4, with Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste.. which supposed to be the best.. but my load on 3.8GHZ is 59-60C, it doesn't seem to like 60C although it is Prime stable for 30min+ when i run firefox or msn they crash.. if im not running prime those appz don't crash, which leads me to believe it doesn't like 60C..

Are my temps too high for my setup? or just about right??

your temps might be a little on the high side, but that's a pretty good overclock for air.
Try seeing if it is OCCT stable.
Filling out your system specs would be helpful as well.

Unspoken: It is generally a good idea not to use your computer while Prime is running. The fact that the applications do not crash while Prime is not running but do when it does is a good indication of this. If the computer can do Prime for a good 10-12 hours, it should be considered 'stable.'

I just got mine to 3.7GHz with water and upping the voltage to 1.44v.

Current core temps are 32c Idle / 43c Load.

Kaer, I'm not a electrical engineer or an expert in electricity but check to see how many devices you have on that circuit. Sounds like it's being overloaded.

In regards to your UPS purchase, go for a APC Smart-UPS. Those use the "sine wave" output which supposedly conditions more of the electricity then standard UPS that uses "stepped wave" output. The APC Smart-UPS 700VA and up use sine wave.

Hope that helps

Max temperature is 62C on the 920 or 940.

My original concern for wanting a line cleaner was to clear the possibility of polluted power coming in and forcefully causing vdroops, and the droops would cause the system to hang.

The UPS problem was a separate issue that didn't contribute to the situation. I guess while I was explaining it I made it sound like I was trying to replace one with another. Not replace, but merely add to the setup. Now that I think about it, the UPS would trip for my older system as well which wasn't even close as to using as much power as the current rig.

So far it seems less problematic since I've plugged the pc into the non-battery powered plug of the UPS. I'm aware of certain UPS that add some noise/ticks to the current coming out and into the PC (which can be heard sometimes).

I want to test to see if this UPS in specific is actually polluting my power or not. That's where the line cleaner would come in. I would stress test with OCCT and compare charts. My vcore has a ripple of ~11% and when it droops the ripple's as high as 27%.

Now if I could eliminate that problem, I'm thinking that I could be able to push my 920 a lil' bit farther for stable speeds. I'll have to change boards completely if I even want to attempt to go past 4Ghz.

Thanks for the help regardless

Kaer, a UPS is suppose to provide line conditioning so I don't see how it would "pollute the power". If you suspect the UPS is not filtering power (or not operating correctly) then return it to the manufacturer for a replacement. What kind of UPS do you have? The brand and model would be helpful. When was the last time you replaced the battery?

Good luck

I agree that it's supposed to, but not all do provide line conditioning. Only the higher end models do. I have an APC UPS, its rated for 325VA. Nothing big at all and also still on the original battery.

It's too late for warranty exchange and most likely the battery isn't good anymore either. I never originally planned on using it with my computer but I figured it's better than none at all.
