Available in 2GB Modules and 4GB (2x2048MB) Dual Channel Kits

240 Pin DIMM

Part Numbers
2GB (2048MB) Module PN - OCZ2P10662G
4GB (2x2048) D/C Kit PN - OCZ2P10664GK <----What your running
I'll try that.

I've been running at the epp which is 5-5-5-15-26 at 2.1 volts.

That passes belnd when my cpu is at 3.9ghz so I assumed it would be fine at 4.0ghz

Oh really? Strange, because I had to flash the bios to 3.5 if I wanted to use the Phenom II 550BE. According to MSI website, a flash to bios 3.5 was required in order to get a 550BE working. Although, I never bought the Phenom II 550BE yet, but I flashed it anyways. And yes, it was successful.

But with the 555BE that is slating to come out since the 550BE will be gone, I only had the thought of it being a different chip. Unless you say it could be true that the C3 may not require because they are basically the same chip as the 550BE??

Let me know what you think.

Its my first time, by any chance have you ran Memtest86+ yet? Preferably tests 5 and 8?

Raisethe3, there's really no way of knowing until that new stepping comes out but since it's still technically a "550BE" you may not have to.

Good luck

Right after spending hours trying to stay stable at 4.0ghz I've given up.

If I saw one more bsod I swear I would've thrown my pc out the window

I've settled for this





I've got my nb frequency at 2600.

I might try and push for 2800 and I'm still in two minds whether to run my ram at 1066 or go lower with thighter timings.

Final voltages for my overclock are

cpu voltage 1.472v
cpu nb 1.2875
cpu vdda 2.5
ht 1.2
nb 1.1
ram 1.8

Idle temps 27 and load temps 39 on air.

With my current overclock I pass blend test (yes finally ), large fft. Intel burn test, and linx.

I haven't tested small fft eyt but I'm hoping I'll pass that ok otherwise I'm gonna be p****d off :grin:

I haven't yet but I'm stable at 3.9ghz.

I think you were right when you said that I might have hit a wall at 4.0ghz.

To be fair I doubt there'd be much real world performance increase at 4ghz over 3.9, it was more the placebo effect of ahving 4.0ghz.

Maybe you could give it more vCore? I mean, its a Phenom II processor anyways, and from what I heard, people took it to 1.55. But that's with a quad, but I am guessing this is sorta the same thing anyways. Correct me if I am wrong.

I was that desperate to hit 4.0ghz I gave it 1.625

In my desperation i bumped all voltages up.

I had cpu nb at 1.4 ht at 1.4 nb at 1.4 cpu vdda at 2.8, I then tried nb frequency at stock then higher, then lower.

I messed about with the ram, trying different speeds, different timings, I still kept crashing out.

What is really weird is when I first got the chip I was stable at 4.0ghz

What?! 1.625 volts?!

Just be careful. If you can't get stable at 4ghz, just be happy with how far you got. I mean, speed doesn't determine everything after all.

Yeah I was getting crazy and was doing anything to get 4.0

Yeah you're right I'm gonna stick with it now, and try and enjoy my pc.

It's the first pc I've ever built and I'm quite proud

I'm gonna buy a new graphics card soon, I can't wait.

I would love to know how some people get overclocks with such low voltages, do they stress test them?

I am betting no.

I know HondaGuy had 4.0 but he went with water cooling.

This guy from MSI forum had air cooling from True black + Papst 100cfm. I don't know what it is, but he never tested for stability.

Here are his proof:
