Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 218

post #2171 of 2829
I'd like to overclock that thing on the right

the original post says "whatever" so it's up to you. 47 at load? wow. I need a better cooler

You and me both, and probably a great deal many other people! One of the Victoria Secret models, Australia’s own Miranda Kerr.

And I cant complain about the temperature, but to be honest its not a huge improvement over what I had before :S I figure I messed up somewhere... probably in the mounting, or the TIM application. Or maybe that’s just close to the limit that air coolers can reach on 940s? I have no idea :s All I know is that the TRUE is a very good cooler! you probably would not see much of a difference switching over to the megahalems tbh, it'd be minor.


+rep for the clarification as well, good to know

I have the true's little brother, with 4 heatpipes instead of 6. I get in the high 50's at load. I'm thinking higher cfm fans, and a few more heatpipes will help me out, but I wont know until fall, it's getting hot up here with no A/C

Tnx Drin, I will sure post some pics when installed I'm also curious how the block will perform, there are so many positive reviews I read...the current cpu block is horrible (I'll post a link to some1 who took it apart, lol)
But sure am satisfied with the currents result. But OCing is a Pita,....low temps but not quite a high OC . Maybe I should go back to an older BIOS, as the new 903 Bios for my M3A79T is holding me back. Can't even reach the 3914MHz anymore

Anyway, as for stability, a quote from the first page, "This doesn't mean you have to run a 10-12hr stress test, it just means that your system isn't crashing at full load at a time you think which fits (either 30min or 12hrs whatever you like)."
Hope this helps

Mate I load at about 41 with the current brisbane temps an that's at 1.4 volts 3.6 so if your loading at 47 with 1.5 volts 3.9 I don't think your doing all that bad. You still have plenty of headroom although I know these things like the cool. Take it outside it's freaking cold out there! haha. Good luck to you looking forward to your results.

I surely doubt they like the cold that much....having a load temp 36C (1.47V@3.7GHz), but can't get the thing up to 4GHz stable

BTW, Drin the inside of my Standard Coolit cpu-block.

I agree with the whole "they like cooler temps" thing. I saw no improvements moving over to water. Well except temps.

Drin, I think this was discussed a couple of pages back? Shoot it might of been another thread but anyways...everyone has their own testing mythology. I prefer OCCT for 1hr on High and if that passes then I go onto Orthos (priority 9/blend) for 24hrs. Really truthfully nothing is 100% stable. It'll never happen, even at stock settings. That's the way I see things

Good luck

Nice, just see others with same chip and what they are doing to it.

Each processor is different, soo max OC depends if u get a lucky batch.

See others results with your chip.

I don't know whawt vcore to tell you so we can start there... hmmm gl

Cheers, and yeah I was just being silly - I do realise the need for extended stability tests and how they can be useful, I just do not believe that someone should question what someone’s measure of stability is. If someone's system is not completely stable, or stable enough for their purposes, then it is their burden. There's potentially a lot of variables intricate to the actual instance of the chip itself, which may influence its ability to OC - claiming that it may be misleading to people hoping to buy the chip (jimbigood) should not be an issue. People should not buy chips expecting to 'overclock' something by a certain degree, because its never guaranteed due to the nature of overclocking itself. I know everyone does at some point, but they should always be aware of the 'risk' of overclocking expectations.

I'd estimate at least two thirds of people with an i7 claiming 4.0ghz never, ever offer any 'tangible' proof - its just their word. Reading the 955 thread, the poster who claimed 4.1ghz stable never offered any either, at least none that I saw, other than a cpu-z verification. In the end, you have to take everything with a grain of salt, and if someone posts greater evidence of their oc, massive props to them. You cannot however demand that of everyone, or belittle people who fail to meet your 'criteria' of stability since once again, it is all subjective.



Anyway, rant aside (no offence intended to any parties) I was primarily curious as to what people thought were good measures of long-term stability. Reading up on some posts done by Chew*, I figured that I'll start prime95'ing from now on. And to put my earlier statement of 'the risk of overclocking expectations' I was not able to hit 4ghz stable.

I do believe however that I did not mount my cooler properly, although the retention mechanism is very solid there are allowances for error; I have not had much experience with it yet and I believe its not seated optimally. The temps just do not make sense, I'm hardly seeing a decrease at all after:

- having my cpu lapped (flat, tested)
- installing 2x 120x38 fans in push/pull (to be fair I was using a single one on my noctua before my megahalems, but still)
- shrouding said fans
- moving my system to an open bench (tbh, now that my case is heavily modded I'd hardly see a difference but still)
- upgrading my cooler to what many argue is the best air cooler around

So no decent screenshots after all that effort I did manage to hit 3920 stable (3 hours prime) which is a very slight increase in core clock, same voltages, but at the expense of my NB clock and RAM timings, so I figured its not worth posting over the one I posted a day ago. I'd spend more time reseating, benching, figuring out the bios, but with finals in a week I just have no time. Good news though, in three weeks I'll spend time to reach my final OC and leave it at that for good.

Best of luck everyone, and gl on your oc's!
