NB 2.8 is a sweet spot with these chips.

First, Thank you very much for your assistance. It is much appreciated!

Now, what is a C2 or a C3? hehe sorry if it is a dumb question.

Also, when adjusting the NB, need I worry about voltages?

Also, I am running a 64 bit system... would it be in better interest if I re-installed a 32 if I am not planning on expanding memory?

I have an msi 790fx GD70 and would like to know your BIOS settings to hit 1600.

well after receiving my gpu today, i had to do a bios update always thinking the difficult way of course, i went ahead and prepped a stupid 98 disk until i found in here the m-flash way, since then i have updated bios to 1.70 and my ram now runs @ 7-8-7-24

for now i m not going to oc the cpu at all, max temp on 3400 (c&q off) is via prime 1 hr 48C

Your welcome, by the way. Glad to help.

The newest revision of our chips is the "C3" revision. They have all been C2 revisions up to a month ago when the C3's were released. New revisions have minor adjustments or fixes in them.

Yes, the NB needs volts when you bump it up. For NB @ 2400, set NB core 1.2v & CPU-NB 1.25v, for NB 2600, set NB core 1.25v & CPU-NB 1.35~v.

If you run a 32-bit O/S then it will not give you full use of 4GB of RAM. You will probably get anywhere from 3GB to 3.4GB, 64-bit can support up to something like 32GB. Stay w/ x64 O/S's, they are more 'upgrade proof'.

945 and 955 are RB-C2 Revision and 965 is the RB-C3. You can see this in CPU-Z pretty clearly under the revision cell.

There are C1 945's....not many though


God i hate my CPU...i am still dealing with these secondary processor mumbo jumbo bsods

Damn it i am 16+ hours Prime 95 stable yet Resident Evil 5 can crash me when benchmarking

Edit - After a few months i just realized something...i am running my memory at 6-6-6-16...stock timings are actually 6-6-6-20

Let this be the cause of these bloody bsods

Here is a list of the NEW C3 Phenom II's but only the Dual and Quad Core formats are being produced at this point.

NOTE:
1. C3 965 is now 125w instead of the old 140w
2. C3 945 is now 95w instead of the old 125w
3. No news on whether there will be a new 95w C3 955,to the best of my knowledge. Looks like it's only 125w still

OPN's and specs

HDX550WFK2DGM AMD Phenom™ II X2 550 3100Mhz 80W
HDXB53WFK2DGM AMD Phenom™ II X2 B53 2800Mhz 80W
HDXB55WFK2DGM AMD Phenom™ II X2 B55 3000Mhz 80W
HDX945WFK4DGM AMD Phenom™ II X4 945 3000Mhz 95W
HDX955FBK4DGM AMD Phenom™ II X4 955 3200Mhz 125W
HDZ965FBK4DGM AMD Phenom™ II X4 965 3400Mhz 125W

LOL- That could cause some instability.


EDIT: Look what I broke down and Did being that the Company that I ordered my C3945 95w through, Changed the ETA Three times (found out this morning. they were supposed to ship it out today) and STILL had no idea of what to expect fro a REAL ETA. I was on the phone Literally all day trying to hunt down a C3 945 with no luck... So low and behold, A C3 965BE will be on it's way tomorrow for this guy!!!!! It's my first Black Edition CPU, believe it or not! Check it!
