SPEC, That is pretty good for just the stock cooler.

Any idea when you'll be going "Ice Age" on that sucker? Thet 4.646 isn't stable is it?

Balanced! Do you know how to change it?

Start Button> Control Panel> Power Options> Select Change Plan Settings> Change Advanced Power Settings.

Make sure that you set your Hard Drive Sleep Mode to Never. By clcicking inside the box and using the Arrow keys to lower the number below 0. It goes to Never after that.

When the Power Settings window Pops up follow this:

Hard Disk> Turn Hard Disk off After> Select the Block by Clcikcing in it> Highlight the number and then type a "0"> Press the down key once to bring the word "Never" into the box> Select Apply and Okay.

I hope you have a freak of a chip cause your are tempting me to sell my 965 and get a 955.

Well, remember that he's not going for Max Stable OC's yet. You may very well be able to do this with your Chip as well.

That brings up a Good Question for you SPEC....

Does this process you have of running the CPU up as high as you can when you first get it, do anything for the Max OC? I wondering about that... Serious question BTW

I just grabbed this one straight from newegg. I think this is a good chip so far. I'm going to test it on my megahalem today and see how it reacts. I'm hoping to get filled up for some ln2, but I won't be able to bench that today b/c I need to allow pressure to build up so I can dispense it.

I'm tempted to put in my 965 to see if it can pass the same settings. I may actually do that. I'll be able to tell you around 1-2pm EST. My 965 was a good one, but this one seems to be even better.

It's a 0945MPMW if interested. I'll get a lid shot later.

I always do this with new cpu's. I'm not sure if it plays a roll in the burn-in factor of a chip to obtain higher results. I mainly do this to get to know the chip and it's capacity. Helps when I have a method of cooling that is perishable so I don't spend forever getting a good clock. I'm only doing stock air and aftermarket air for curiosity reasons. That and feeling kinda lazy about prepping the gd-70.

Probably not going to happen. I tried already and can go no higher than 4.444ghz. I tried with multiple voltages, and different settings. I even under volted the pll voltage to 2.15v and it did allow me to run 4.234ghz longer it still bsod while under a load. While he is not going for stable OCs he is on the stock cooler and running 200mhz higher than I at suicide run. Wonder what it could do under water.

Yes please do this as I would like a comparison.

Hold the presses. Are you saying there should be a burn in time for chips and that could effect the over all OC of the chip?

some people say yeah.. I dunno if it's true or not. I just overclock the piss out of it as soon as I get it.

Off to install the megahalem.

sorry for the double posting...

just a quick 5 pass @ a slightly lower voltage - Stock VID is 1.4v =o\\

So does the OPN really matter with how well the CPU performs? Iheard a lot abuot this but how does it affect OCing? The MFR check every waffer under a microscope to determine if there are any imperfection at all.

Hey did you try raising the PLL voltage one step at a time retesting in between? You may have differnt results.

But do you find that it's easier to get a more stable OC afterwrds?

Also, this "Burn in" was mentioned here at OCN before and Electromigration was brought up and claimed that this wouldbe the only thing that would be any type of burn in. Electromigration, IIRC, is the process of when resistent metal particals are moved to the end of an IC where they wil build up. This decreases the path of electricity throught he IC making voltage transfer more efficient. BUT it can cause Circuits to break down quickly at the soldered joints where the Parrticle build up is...

So in essence, it (Electromigration) implies that running that specific IC's Voltage higher from the beginning, for a little while, can aid in a more effient votlage trasfer by less resistence in the voltage path ONLY Allowing any given frequency (whether it be stock or OC'd) to be ran, stably, with less volts than if this process would not have been performed...

So who really knows... We should look into it.
