I have my Phenom II x2 555 BE running @ 4Ghz @ 1.45v for more than 12 hours at a time. Even at full load my CPU temps don't go over 32c at full load on Prime95 for 2 hours. I haven't even tried running it past 4Ghz yet. Any guesses on how high it could go? Anyone interested, bareing in mind when I am sat next to my desktop I feel like I could do with some gloves. I am only using a H60 with push/pull and a side case fan. I don't use a front intake either.

I am allways amazed to see the high speeds here and on other forums.
Either i am the most unlucky guy on the planet or you guys somehow are lucky as hell
But non of my pc's has ever clocked any higher then a few 100 mhz
In fact the best overclock i ever made is still a old q6600 which runs at 3,2 Ghz stable, but i need 1.5 volts for get it running stable.
When i read all other people postings they can do it with only 1.325 volts, i tried 29 second hand quads and never found one going over this result (29 times 3.0 Ghz max)
All the amd cpu's i owned ended in most cases with a 50mhz overclock or at best ever 300 mhz
On the Amd side my x3 720 BE has given me the best overclock, it runs at 3.1 Ghz stable just by upping the mp.
When i dare go over or changing the mhz, it results in crash over crash besides a max 10 Mhz difference
I see people posting incredible speeds but when i buy a cpu and try it ends very soon in disaster.

Do not get me wrong but stable means for me not crash ever, i run my pc's 24/7 most of the time under constant load
So running prime for less then 365 days is not enough for me wink.gif

are 1090ts welcome here? if so my stable overclock was 3.8ghz with just a bump to multiplier and good cooling. Could probably have pushed further....but for now my mommyboard is at asrock getting replaced because of a few issues which annoyed me. the processor says ccbbe cb 1105fpm

My setup is almost exactly the same as the original posters. I'll get a validation of it up soon(tm)...and my temps are about the same. The 830's really don't generate a whole heck of a lot of heat (my experience anyway). Ambient in the room is about 20c (68f), idle is 21c, gaming is 27-28c and Prime95 is around 35c. My case is in my sig rig below; I use a single intake fan on the back, and 2 exhaust fans (all 120mm) venting out the top. 212cpu cooler, stock cooler on GPU.

(edit: lower overclock, but lower volts as well)

*late reply*


I know how you feel, most people seem to just clock their stuff to hell and post it up as "stable".

Although I do have an Athlon II X2 215 (2.7Ghz stock) overclocked by over a Ghz 24/7 OCCT stable.
My Phenom II X2 550 BE is a bit lackluster though. Cant unlock at all and only hits 3.7Ghz.

I picked up one of these at Microcenter as well. It runs stable at 3.1 GHz just by raising FSB. Only running 37 C under load, on stock voltage. I have not tried to go any higher yet.
