Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 70

post #691 of 4289
Here's the deal. I'm totally new at this. Just go a brand new set up built it all myself. First build too. Anyways.
Gigabyte 790XT-UDP4. Phenom II X2 550 AM3, 2x2GB Corsair DDR3 Ram, Powercolor 4870 1GB GDRR5.
Finally got an OCZ Gladiator Max. Managed to unlock all 4 cores and run it at 3.62 on 1.42v.

Problem is I lose temperature when I unlock the cores. What is a safe temp and what kind of temp increase can I assume when switching from dual core to 4 cores?


To be honest I have 0 idea of what I'm doing. I have read a lot but if someone could give some concise exact information that would be great. eg, safe volts on all hardware, safe temps, suggested settings?

Once again sorry to jump in on this, any help is greatly appreciated

first, you can read the temp of the cpu, for example with everest (what you cant read is the core temps )

second, your oc is ok and safe voltage but you have to test stability, my prefer stress program is prime95

cya ^^

Yeah, do not go over 1.55v (amd says), but honestly unless you have watercooling dont go past 1.45v max.

You can still view temps when unlocked, but not each individual core. Use everest to get your cpu temp.

I've personally found, on my chip, that the dif between everest and cpuid hardware monitor and pc wizard when in dual core is min. 4C and up to 8c higher.

So, find what your dif is with everest in dual core to a few other programs to get a baseline on temps. Then when in quad you can have a decent guesstimate using everest.

I think he can safely go to 1.5v on air (maybe a little higher) as long as he can monitor temps.... my mobo starts me at 1.408v and i've been to 1.5v on my last cpu 7750BE and this one i did for a while and temps never got over 45c under full load...

Well, I updated some of my info. I just flashed the BIOS to F5C and i gotta tweak the settings again. Will post with as much information as I can then will ask for suggestions. Thanks for the help. I will keep you posted.

What did you do in the bios, in order to try and unlock your 550?

Sure, but I wanted to promote a bit more caution because he said he was brand new to this.

Just keep an eye on your temps with everest and DON'T go past 1.55v and you should be safe(ish).
