So I did some updating and I am mad now. I updated to 0701 bios hopping to get some stablization to some higher clocks and no dice. worse than before. Now since I updated to 9.1 ati drivers my higher clocks on it are not reachable without error. I heard of people reading some higher clocks. Guess not with my system.

Considering you were able to reach ~3.9Ghz stable thats more then most owners of Phenom II 940 can reach, therefore I wouldnt worry too much, at least until mobo bios matures more to support this cpu.

Hey guys, I am getting a Dragon platform soon with the Asus M3A79-T Motherboard and i'm wondering whats the MAX Core voltage the the mobo can achieve without exploding into festering mass of charred silicone? Really dont want the 800US i spent to go down the hole... -_-

According to www.cpu-world.com, 1.5V is max safe. I heard people say AMD say 1.55V. For 24/7 use I would recommend not going over the 1.55V though you most likely will be ok upto 1.6V as long your temps is in check.

I've been running my 940 at 3.516 for 2 days now with out any issues at all.

200 x 17.5
VCore 1.4500
DDR2 2.100
HT 1.30
K8 <-->NB Speed 1.8 Ghz

I use a Zalman 9700, running around 2300 RPM

1.55 is safe for benching but not 24/7.

I run 1.375 @3.5ghz stable 24/7.

Yea I am happy but I am always pushing to see what I can do to squeeze every mhz out of this cpu.
