Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 49

post #481 of 2829
I think my cpu heat goes thru the roof and I cannot play games with 250x15. Unless I crank my Ultra Kaze up it was the only way I could even pass 3dmark06 before.

Just noticed something... robbo2, danielackerman, and Vegeta Rage, you are all at 18x 200, seemingly stuck (correct?), and you are all also on the ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe board. Maybe this is a coincidence, maybe not. You guys may have similar board limitations, whatever they could be... so in case one of you figures something out, keep an eye on each other.

Lol I am man! I can get 3.7 but needs 1.5 volts to stabilize an for the extra 100mhz the heat isn't worth it. Any other combination to try 3.8 windows just won't boot for me. I notice one guy did get 3.8 but that was on 32 bit so maybe that makes a difference.

New to the forum, but have been following the thread and thought I would add my results so far to the chart.

Stepping: CACVC AC (really don't feel like taking it out to see the rest)
Type: 940
CPU CLOCK: 3840
METHOD: 16x240
CPU Volts: 1.58 in BIOS
CPU-NB Volts: stock
NB CLOCK: 2160
NB Volts: 1.14 (assuming you mean Core/PCI-E Voltage)
HT-Link: 2160
HT Volts: 1.22
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS M3A79-T
MB BIOS 602
COOLING: WC
OS: Vista Ultimate x86


This setup passed 1hr OCCT. Funny thing is...I can boot into Vista @ 3.9 & 4.0 (with lower voltage at that) and it seems stable...but after I start OCCT, it's good for nothing more than a 60 second count down to BSOD. I'm guessing cooling plays a big part in that.

Well I have had my 940 up to 4.0 unstable and 3.9 unstable. Both last about a minute or two and then bsod. I Will be posting up my specs tomorrow but I had some questions. Does having a higher FSB lower multi yield better cpu performance? Or does it matter. My current super pi score is 18.565 secs. I would love to break into the 17s. thxs.

My current super pi score is 17s



I haven't tested the difference.

Your also on water at 1.6 volts. My chip doesnt seem to like me touching the fsb that much. most of my tests tonight have bsod. the multipliers have been mostly stable. Hitting 4gs is my goal stable enough to run 3dmark06, vantage and super pi.

True. Out of curiosity I just ran super pi at 4ghz and it didn't make a difference. If ONLY I could make this OCCT stable, with the same volts...



sigh...if only...

Yea booting isn't the issue. I can even do normal everyday tasks...no problem. It's only when I stress all four cores at once that it craps out on me.
