This also makes me think is there a way to OC in dual and then figure the X amount of degrees is added for using all four cores?
Sorry i was confused by the picture and i had think by some how or way you ppl had accomplished to see the cpu temp! my bad!

at the time i hadn't made any oc because i'am with the stock cooler.
i'am with 4 core's unlocked at 1.20V

what the best heatsink for oc in am3?
i was thinking in 3Rsystem Iceage 120 Boss II

by frostytech it's best!

paperKuts what do you had buyed in the picture seem's like a titan fenrir! are you satisfied?

Cheers, i think i am going to go green for my next GFX card, I dont want to but i want PhysX unless the 5870 is worth a buy, I would rather stick with ATi as iv been die hard Red for a long time now...

Cheers think3r i have managed to push the CPU to 3.7GHz, 2.2 NB, HT 1.98GHz and ram at 440Mhz, case keeps it all nice and cool very good case, still a bit small but has the airflow and good for cable management.

Loserdave, did you make sure to manually input the correct sub-timings and voltage? Which Kingston kit is this? I checked the specifications on your motherboard and Asus did point out that in order to run at 1800Mhz that it would require the user to overclock the memory. In order to do this you would have to probably adjust your cpu multiplier and start played with your HT Clock Speed (reference clock speed).

Good luck guys and sorry for the wall of text. I noticed a few posts were unanswered. For the temperature questions see above
Thanks for the info
All overclocking done in BIOS
The CPU under load,(playing Crysis @ medium settings for an hour) all four cores unlocked @ 3.1ghz runs about 35 degrees.
The CPU under load, all four cores unlocked @ 3.4ghz runs about 43 degrees.

As far as the RAM is concernd ,, KHX1800C8D3/2G
when i manualy set the timming to 8, 8, 8, 24 and voltage to 1.7
(which is the ram's native specs and supported by the motherboard according to the manual) the machine becomes unstable and reboots and resets to automatic timing. I was able to achieve 1600mhz but PC became unstable during gaming.
I was told that it has something to do with the CPU cash speed being 1333mhz
Thanks again for your help
by the way overclocking is nowhere unnecessary for this cpu. It's plenty fast stock.
i think most of us do it just to see how far we can push the processor.

I am hitting 39°C~43°C with all fans at full RPM and around 49°C when fans are all set to low. Currently i put the CPU to 3.2GHz and 1.34v, gonna boost the clock abit and see how it goes!

Brutuz, dumb question here but are you running the latest version of CPU-Z? Does the processor show up under Properties of "My Computer"?

Loserdave, in order to achieve 1600Mhz (800Mhz) you'll have to overclock the memory. 1333Mhz is as high as it will go via divider on the motherboard I believe. Strange though that the factory timings result in crashes. If left on AUTO in the bios what does CPU-Z display? Did you try giving it a slight bump in voltage?

Good luck

Thanks for the reply dude.


All i did in BIOS was set AAC to "auto" and nothing else, i havn't overclocked or messed around with other settings just unlocked the other 2 cores. I had the pc running fine for over 2 weeks on default settings apart from changing AAC feature.

I just dont understand how it could stop running all of a sudden, but i will try boosting the vcore once i get home and post back later tonight.

cheers dude!!

Clock speed: 3.6 Mhz
FSB x Multi: 200x18
Vcore: 1.344
RAM speed: 667
NB speed: 200
HT Link: 2009
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P
Cooling method: Sunbeam CCTF-92
CPU-Z validation would also be nice.
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=752394

This is on 4 cores unlocked.

Not sure the best way to check temps, any feed back would be great. Have heard you need to check bios. Saw the GPU1 temp in the OCCT reports. Is there another test software that records CPU temps? Or since I am unlocked am I out of luck?

just tried upping my cpu voltage but no joy still. cleared c-mos entered bios and changed aac feature to "auto" rebooted went back into bios changed cpu voltage to 1.4v rebooted fine but when i shut down it wouldn't boot up unless i hit the reset button???? confusing to say the least!

please help me recover my quad

Turtlewrench, as far as I know once the 550BE is unlocked you won't be able to check the "core" temperatures any more. This is a pretty typical occurrence so don't be alarmed. However the "cpu" temperature (IHS level) should still show up in Everest, HWMonitor, Speedfan ect ect. From what was discussed on here previously, it appeared that the core temperatures were always slightly lower than the cpu temperature. This was in dual-core mode though so I would expect the core temps to be a little higher (two extra cores, higher tdp, more vcore). Use that temperature reading if you can. If it gets in the low 60's (Celsius) then I would probably back down the overclock or adjust cooling.

Cantona7, did you try 1.45 volts? Are you running the memory at 400Mhz or 533Mhz? Your 550BE may be a faulty quad-core Deneb. Do you have the stepping?

Good luck
