Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 392

post #3911 of 4289
We recently helped our intern at my shop do a new build, he went Phenom II X2 550, C3, and Core Contact Cooler 120mm, and a Gigabyte board, and 4GB of DDR2-800. The memory is actually not even matched b/c we didn't have a matched set in stock and he wanted to do it right away.

Well, I was showing him how to overclock after work and we went through and he is booting with this chip at 4Ghz! I was very impressed and surprised. This is on a $30 air cooler.

I told him to do some stability testing, basically linx runs and Prime95 over night, if it seems stable I told him he should join your club. He is using his onboard HD4200 for now until he can afford a video card and we overclocked that to 700Mhz from 500Mhz as well.

I did not realize that these chips had such potential. It would be amazing if he can get up to 4.1 or 4.2, the only other people in this club I see with those clocks are on water!

555BE is a monster

4.63 GHz CPU validation



1.5vcore 10X CPUNB 5X HTLink

Bench stable required a little more voltage (1.55 in the 4.4-4.5 GHz range

Blend stable at 4.2GHz 1.4 volts never got around to 4.4GHz blend stability though. (killed my board so any screenies will have to wait till it comes back from RMA)

I am surprised he got it on that kind of CPU cooler. Was this tested inside the case or out? Great job nonetheless!

Its not a black edition. It has a locked 15.5 multi. This was all through bus. I haven't ran AMD chips since my e8400 so it took me a few minutes to figure out the way it overclocks but we just kept bumping the bus and getting the clock speed up 100Mhz at a time and damn if it didn't post and pass some linx runs at 4Ghz.

I had no idea these chips could clock like this. Very impressive. He should be in this week so I'll ask him if ran the stability testing and if he took screen shots.

Its funny too, b/c his main game is WoW so its not like he really needs a 4Ghz cpu.

It was testing in his case, an Antec 900. I really like those cases, not too loud, good airflow, easy to work in, and not super expensive, you can find 'em new for under $99.

He is using a Logisys fan instead of the stock fan that came with the heatsink, it is kind of loud but moves a lot of air.

Ahh did not realize non BE. As long as you are not running as ASUS board (lol) you should be able to run that HTREF right on up.

(I have two tenements of buying AMD boards... never spend more than $100 and never get an ASUS for nonBE... I broke both TWICE... both on asus boards.. m4a79 deluxe and CHIII. M4 couldnt pass 260, CHIII craps out at around 300. Even my "free" frys motherboard passes 300....)

(Admittedly... the early rev m4s can do high HTREF but mine popped when I tried to force bios... 903? on it.. since it was pre rev)

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, those fans move above 2200+ rpm. Pretty crazy. The Antec 900 is very similar to what I have with the Antec 300. If I am not mistaken, its only slightly bigger by like 1" and it has more room inside. Hm....which leaves me thinking, I might be able to replicate it. But I am getting a different build and the newer C3 Phenom II 555BE instead of the 550BE.

I was not impressed with the 900... I replaced it with a NZXT zero (same basic case.. air flow though is WHOA

Added a high pressure front fan two high pressure rears and two low pressure side fans.

Seriously.. I pulled the thumbscrews on the side of the case... and let the side panel pop out 1/8" temps rose 5C on CPU.

excellent air design on that one, has the same exact problems as the 900 though. bad with 90 degree sata ports, long vid cards.. and HDD placement just like the 900 its easily modded though... but better flow design.

Can't beat top mounted PSU on a regular ATX.. reverse ATX.. definitely bottom mounted PSU... but regular.. no way.

^^^The NZXT can have the psu mounted either bottom or top? Wow, that's cool.
