Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 283

post #2821 of 2822
By the way, my Phenom II isnt on the list. its Phenom II B59 (released in businesss computers in china only- not even the AMD website recognizes that they exist). Its showing as an athlon II 559 because it is unlocked from an X2 to an X4, but it it s phenom II.

i would guess that a lot of the high overclockers research the date that the "Best" overclocking chips were produced, and look for corresponding numbers in ebay listeng pictures for individual cpu's. You also have to choose a quality cooler and a motherboard with good, high wattage and stable vrm's. I had a 750K Black edition which overclocked to 4.4 ghz on a gigabyte board, but would only hit 4Ghz stable on a comparable ASrock board- most likely because of the quality of the VRM's.
