62C is the max safe temp for the cpu,not recomended getting to this and above.
First off I just bought this board and some other things to go with it, so I guess I am in the club!
See attached picture, spent a pretty penny but it should be well worth it. Anyway I should have everything next week sometime and will have some o/c for you guys. I am so stupid I bought the C2 stepping 965 and I just picked up the C3 to go with this board so I can get full 1600Mhz RAM speed. Oh and I am going to have Vista 64bit installed on an Corsair extreme 32GB SSD for extra performance, should be fun!


FYI that 62c is for the case temperature. I emailed Indigo Extreme b/c I bought their thermal solution and this is what they said

"Hi Sean,

Thank you for your inquiry.

AMD’s 62C spec is for max case temperature (a thermocouple measurement taken on top of the CPU lid); however, you will be measuring CPU core/junction temperature with a utility such as SpeedFan, etc. As there is significant thermal resistance between the CPU lid and core/junction, the core temperature will be much higher than the case temperature.

The Indigo Xtreme Installation Guide specifically for the AM3/2 notes reflow temperature peak in the 80-85C range. The CPU has built-in thermal protection and will throttle; there have been no issues from other customers at these temperatures.

It is strongly recommended that you reflow Indigo Xtreme with stock freq. and voltage; additionally, do not disable the CPU thermal protection.

Feel free to contact me if I can assist further.

Chris"

If you have not heard of Indigo let me explain, it is a self contained thermal compound for extreme overclockers and it cost $18 for two applications and this stuff needs to reach a certain temp to flow through all the little gaps and what not on the heatsink. In order to reach the re-flow point you have to run CPUburn for the amounted time to get your CPU to hit 85c (run 4 at the same time for quads) which I thought was bananas for a AMD chip cause like everyone else I saw the 62c also. Here is the link :http://indigo-xtreme.com/
Please post up if you plan on using this stuff as I am to much of a chicken to burn my new 965 at 85c. I will just sit on the crap till some more people get familiar with this stuff and make sure it is ok to reach those temps with AMD CPU's...

Well thats very confusing,max safe temp for the 965be c3 is 62c,AMD confirms this,link below,your saying that it's 62c case temp,if your case temp was 62c,i would dread to think what your cpu temp would be,let alone the rest of the components,so that makes no sense at all.

For them to say to run your AM3 cpu @85c,to me is madness,thats my opinion anyway,but what do i know,lol!!!,mind you i have been in this game for 35 years,so i think i know a little bit,LOL!!

Yeah Indigo claims the CPU can handle the temp of 85c and the CPU atcually trottles itself down before even hitting the max temp. Don't know which temp is safe that is why I am holding off using this stuff. I will have a spare 965 to test this but not sure if I want to go with it (don't want to trash the new 790FX in the proccess). Supposedly this Indigo stuff is the best compaired to the chart found on their site, see attached, so could be worth it if it doesn't burn your chip.

I would wait for an independent reviewer to take a look at it before I bought something that expensive, especially given their comments on the max temps for the 965. The temp differences are only 1-4C from what most use. Not worth the price IMO

Yeah I came across this stuff while searching and thought hey not too much and supposed to give good temps and perfect application every time so pulled the trigger and now have a new paper weight

Link to thread, what's been talked about it so far here on overclock.net
Started researching more once I read the damn directions

I would'nt take too much notice of there chart,like most companys,they want you to buy there product,according to there chart,some of the best TIM's on the market did'nt do very well at all,very strange,so i would take it with a pinch off salt,lol!!

LOL!!!,you have far too much money to burn,are you hoping for a different batch,i think far to much emphasis is put on batch weeks,you can have two chips from the same week,and one will allways be slightly better than the other,and vice versa,so it's just luck of the draw,lol!!

I have seen lots of people say that the 0942 batch week were crap,i beg to differ,i have one and i can bench at 4.2ghz,lots of others say they could'nt get there chip of the same week to 4ghz,so i think it shows you either get lucky,or you dont.My opinion anyway,lol!!

I will be very interested to see the results.


running prime blend now 4.1ghz cpu/2.8ghz nb/1600, 8-8-8-24-40-1t ram. passed 1 hour when i was home so hopefully it is still running when I get home! 9 hr test!
