Still waiting on some NB and ram OC's with the new c3's, but that is a good one for sure.
furthest i got was 2840 NB stable. It will go higher but then i get errors in prime 95 that i cant seem to iron out

That's a first


It does have sentimental value with me being an AMD fanboy and all but otherwise its a terrible overclocker

I originally bought my 550 and of course due to my harsh luck it wouldn't unlock...so i sold it for 90$ on here (Paid 100$ at the egg) and then started talking to a guy named Sopairk2...he casually buys trays of NEW AMD cpu's and will stroll into a forum and just undermine even the cheapest Phenom I or Phenom II used CPU sale there...great prices and fast shipping straight out of canada

Anyways i was going to pickup a 720BE off of him since i knew i'd hate myself come a few months down the road and i see a nice new quad core supporting title come out...i tell him how i hope to unlock it and if not i will just be happy with a high clocked tri core...he says so you really want a quad core right?

And out of nowhere he drops this CPU on the table and i snap it up for 110$ shipped....that was around 3 or so months ago actually it may have been longer and of course the 940 was still 180$ i believe...and i figured why not

For the price i can't complain...if it holds up to this voltage for at least a year i have gotten my moneys worth out of a benched and beaten CPU...both by me and its previous owners i am sure

So what kind of voltage are you running for that NB overclock?

2.8Ghz is more than enough from the benchmarks and reviews i have read up on






Now has anyone played with OSX on there GD70 setup? easy to do?

I am running 1.27v for 2.8Ghz NB, after 2840 i cant get it stable no matter what the voltage...i think im missing a setting.

Never played with a mac i like the freedom of a PC since i mainly game.

Ok. So I decided to flash back to my the old BIOS (1.6) I downloaded the file and it says it's not compatible with my version of windows. Should I boot it from the CD drive? I'm not too sure...

It could very well be the perfect game stable overclock....yet it might now
I went ahead and bump it to 1.45v in the bios(1.44 cpuz) just for the added comfort... don't want it shutting down in the middle of a game, lol

Use the bios flash or the other 2 ways that eclipse updated on the FAQs. You really need a new GPU, your system is almost the same as mine except im at 1080p gaming. It makes a huge difference you will love it.

Yea, I'm planning on picking up a 5870 in about 2-3 months. Or maybe a 5970... lol... with my modest job at Starbucks...? Anyhow. How do I get the the BIOS flash?

PS- Once again... Disclaimer: I am a total n00b. Lol.

1st page of this thread in Eclipse 1st post near the bottom there is a section called Guides and there is a bios flashing one. They are pretty straight forward and even a n00b should be able to do it If not we will help till you can figure it out.

Thanks. The more lost I get, the more I feel like an idiot. Lol.

EDIT: Could I run the file out of Daemon Tools instead of using a flash drive???
