How far do you think is a safe speed for my CPU? I've heard that this CPU is great for overclocking? I've got it at 3.2 GHz right now, and idle is around 39C. Under load using Prime95 Blend test, around 60C with my current cooling.

62C is the max temp... so I would say you need better cooling before you try to over clock. and or better case air flow.

My case air flow is great. The haf 922 is awesome with that. My legs get chilly sometimes sitting next to it. It's most likely my cpu cooler. How did you get 62C? Thanks for the advice.

All Phenom II's have the same temp limit.

3.5 Quad unlocked phenom ii x4 B50 at 1.365 but regardless of another voltage bump I can't get it to 3.6 stable. Must fiddle.

What are your temps? Temps are the largest cause for a system to become unstable...

Have you tried it with the core relocked? From my understanding, sometimes they lock the core because it is unstable. Also, did you lower the ram speed?

That is the reason behind locking it. They test the chip for a variety of things those that have problems with a whole core get that core locked. For those that have sock problems they lower the clock speed.

Thats why you have 3 core CPU's and a variety of clocks of 3 core and 4 core. They don't do a whole redesign or transistor layout/size for the lower clocks. they do 1-2 designs and depending on how much time after the chip has been assembled determines both the price and the clock they set.
