Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 402

post #4011 of 4289
Full load during the 4Ghz run was only 38-39 deg C but this was during a very cold morning for this area, was only about 10-12 deg C ambient, had the windoes wid open and was about 6am this morning or close to it.

4.1 was stable enough for the windows enviroment but crashed during benchmarking.

Idle was good for 4 & 4.1 in the cool wheather, even dropped to 21-23 deg C at times.

BUT IT WAS COLD WHEATHER.

I'm totally stable @ 3.8 with only 1.5 volts, This chip doesn't seem to mind a volts being pushed through it.

I am very keen to get it under water but atleast 2 months away from that.

28c rise from ambient is nice for all four cores loaded. Of course, 10c ambient is working the hard way to keep the chip cool. However, from 20c ambient, that rise would be in the high 40s which is fine. Nice o/c.

My chip unlocks and o/c fine but I can't keep out of the 50s with all four cores above 3.8GHz (and my voltages are in the 1.46v range - I'm sure that 1.584 would make my chip go way high in temps).

Hey Lark,

On a side note a mate has got a very similar system to yours, what sort of '06 and vantage scores do you get??
post #4014 of 4289
For now I have these settings :

cpu : 3.6 GHz at 1.425v
nb : 2.75 GHz at 1.3v
ram : 1333 6-7-6-18 1T

As a dual core I get 41 C at full load (everest) and 46C in asus probe.
As a quad asus probe shows 56C !

Is this too hot? I'm using CM Hyper 212+ with AS5.

I really wanna push it a little more with 1.475 max vcore but i don't like the temps.

41 and 46 are cool as a cucumber, especially under load. I finally got mine over the 4gig hump

I did a little more homework and downloaded OCCT and AMD's Overclocking Utility. This made changing the various settings much quicker and I found out an interesting fact on my MB and CPU. The North Bridge voltage was a critical factor affecting my o/c.

I turned all four cores on and clocked up the CPU starting from 3.2GHz. At 3.5GHz, I was getting a core error in OCCT after 60-75 seconds so I increased the Core voltage from 1.296. However, the system did not respond very well and after increasing up to around 1.35-1.38, I was still having trouble getting to 3.6 and 3.7. I then increased my NB voltage a smidge (like 0.02) in AMD AOC utility and was stable at 3.6 GHz. I then proceeded to reduce Core voltage back to 1.296v - still stable at the lower core voltage with the new NB voltage. I got to 3.8GHz with the 1.296 core voltage and higher NB.

When I tried 3.9GHz, rebooted after about ten minutes or so. This time no change when I raised the NB another small notch. I am now at 3.9 and 1.328 Core voltage, ~1.23v NB and running Prime95 in blended mode. We'll see how this works.

My North Bridge multiplier is 13 (2.6Ghz), HT at stock (2 GHz). I did not realize that the minor bump in NB voltage would make such a nice change in the o/c.

Freakn - I havn't run the benchmarks yet. I'll give it a run tomorrow and post the results.

Lark888, you're experiment is quite impressive. A 3.9ghz on a 1.328 core voltage is a lot of room. I am sure you can hit the 4.0Ghz easily. How are the temps though? You made no mention on it.
post #4018 of 4289
This is my 1st real attempt @ 4ghz

Clock speed= 3937mhz
FSB x Multi= 225 x 17.5
Vcore= 1.52
RAM speed= 900mhz
NB speed= 2250
HT Link= 2250
Mobo= ASUS M4A785-M
Cooling= Corsair H50

^^Very nice Ro-sham-bo
post #4020 of 4289
Thank you very kindly. one question: why does the socket type change(AM2+) to (AM3) depending on what prog i use? Not that it matters.
