Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 199

965 overclocks a little better too, It nearly always gets over 4Ghz whereas the 955 is lucky to get 4Ghz.

Mitchellvii, from what I heard the IMC in the 965 has been revised. It's capable of higher NB clock (2800Mhz range) and should allow for higher memory overclocks as well. I would expect some nice overclocks from that processor

Good luck

Samura, after finishing the build did you go into the bios and make any changes? This message sometimes appears when it detects new hardware. Try clearing your cmos first and then go back into the bios again and make the appropriate changes. Let us know if that clears it up.

Good luck

Well, it seems that my Phenom II X4 B50 is nice and stable under Windows 7 for desktop computing at 3.6 x 2600 NB, but dies instantly if I try to game. That's ok, if I want to game I can alway just reboot as a X2 550. Does changing back and forth hurt the CPU?

Weird that it can't game at all, although from what I have read, gaming may actually be better as X2 anyway.

Is there a test I can run that will show how each individual core is working so I can see which one is causing the problem?

Mitchellvii, as far as I know switching back and forth should not cause harm to anything. Is 3.6Ghz Prime/OCCT stable? Is it unstable for all of your games?

The only thing that I think you can try is enable just one of the disabled cores and then perform stability testing. This post by Bagpuss describes on how to unlock just one core instead of both.

Hope that helps buddy

Ok, this is so STUPID on my part, it is almost funny.

I thought that my unlocked cores (B50) was causing crashes in games. Then I thought maybe the fact that my 3rd monitor card is semi-lame.

Turns out I was wrong on both counts. Problem was two-fold:

1) Was using 9.9 Catalyst Drivers (lots of bad stuff written about these online).
2) Had the MemCock on my 4890 oc'd too high.

So I dumped the 9.9's and reloaded the 9.8's. Then I reset my oc on the 4890 to 950 x 1000. Ran 3DMark06 and nailed a 17584 score with my 500BE cores unlocked and running at 3.6.

I also backed my CPU NB back to 2400 from 2600. Don't know if this made a difference as I changed other things too, but it couldn't hurt.

Anyway, good news, apparently I DON'T have broken locked cores on my 550 after all .. Was all an overclocking mistake and bad drivers.

I don't know if 17584 is a good 3DMark06 score or not, but it's the highest I've ever had.

Mitchellvii, great job on troubleshooting the problem. I had no idea you had your video card overclocked. If you could, please add your specifications to your signature rig. That way in the future if you have another problem then we'll know what type of hardware you're running ect.

Do you have plans to push your 550BE a little further than 3.6Ghz?

Good luck

Heres some pics I took when I got the Fenrir, also ran Prime95 for 9 hours last night without fail and hit a load temp of 59°C which is kinda hot but only had my fans on at aprox 60% each avg. and at fixed rate also you can see I have a small case with really really bad airflow! lol
