my one idles 38-40 and max load temp using occt is 56 ....18x203 (b50,1.392v)

also would there be much power usuage difference between a dual-core with 1.392v and a quad-core 1.392v

or if the quad-core had 1.350v

I've read that phenoms will start having issues after 55c but you shouldn't go up that much when
playing a game... Your CPU doesn't run as hot doing normal things like plating games etc with an idle temp that you have I don't think you should go over about 45c while playing games etc

what actually "hurts" the CPU? Is it voltage or heat?
Let's say I give my CPU 1.7000 vcore and my temps are below 50c on load is that totally safe?

Jinny1- you don't understand this problem with all GA-MA790XT-UD4P, it means that for some reason the motherboard is not correct work with x4 processors! But it doesn't mean that they didn't worked at all. It your case you just have better CPU cooler , but your motherboar also like my is CORRUPT! And under your CPU cooler it must be not higher that burn 42-48 3,6 Gh you can left it until Gigabyte will fix the bios and it will work correct, I prefer to change it - it is your choise !!!

I have a Kill-A Watt meter connected to my PC, and can tell you at idle there is no power usage difference at all between the CPU running as a X2 or X4, but under load (like running Prime95) four cores used about 35-40W more compared to 2 cores. This was tested @ stock settings on an X2-550.

The higher the vcore is the more wattage the chip will eat and create more heat. Just think of it as the opposite of how AMD's CnQ works, when CnQ kicks in the multiplier drops and the chip runs slower, this allows the chip to run at a lower voltage which uses less power so the chip runs cooler.

Ok, but you can run as high a vcore you want as long as you temps are cool? Without any damage?

Ok, I thought my 4Ghz overclock was stable and it wasn't. It decided to just BSOD on me the other day while doing browsing the internet and installing something.

Funny, because it passed IBT, ran 3dMark06 and Vantage numerous of times, ran SuperPI and Cinebench and it never failed. Argh, not happy here.

I will try to overclock it again, and yes I'm running Windows XP x64/ Windows 7 x64 here. Does anybody have a fully 4Ghz overclock that is stable on a 64 bit OS? Anf if so what kind of voltages did you guys use? Including NB, SB, etc.

I'm not an EE but I don't think it would be safe to assume that, at some point I'd think too much voltage has to damage/shorten the life of a chip no matter what the temp is.

I looked at a couple of AMDs K10h tech docs and couldn't find what they used to describe as "absolute max ratings", the highest I did find was 1.55V in the BIOS and Kernel Developers Guide. I can only guess AMD is basically telling BIOS developers don't allow anything higher then 1.55V for some good reason.

I'm running vista 64
currently on 3.9 but when I had it on 4.0 I ran occt for hours without any errors... the next day I ran some prime and kept getting some calculate 0,5 in 0,4 or something like that error which I think is my memory... But only the first worker would get that error...
I'm constantly trying to get 4.0 stable on 64 with no luck...
But then again I haven't tried 32...
It could be your memory as I'm a little convinced that mine is the memory...
Good luck
ha ha, sorry I don't think it's your memory, didn't see what memory you were using

thanks
I think if I get stable at 4.0 with a 1.55 vcore then I thinks something is wrong,looking at other peoples overclocks they haven't used more than 1.51 to get 4.0 and even 4.1 stable...
If I could just find what's holding me back...
