Temps before were around 64-72c idle/load.

Here is a picture of the mod - Thinking about picking up another VenomousX
And that's what I am looking to install on my motherboard - very nice mod! Incredible... I've reapplied TIM and my temperature was around 7 C - so, now it's 74 (not OC) but it gets hotter

You can see that here -->


...which is connected with my another question (you guys must be very patient there )

Oki... that was (so far) the highest OC made by me (it wasn't stable though - I don't know how long Prime95 test was running before it crashed because I went to sleep :>
My voltages from BIOS were:

CPU V = 1.4 - there is 0.08 voltage dropdown I think
CPU NB = 1.27 (I think - don't know why Everest shows 1.28
HTT link V = 1.23 (as i remember - is it too much?)
NB V = 1.11 V (is a default value 1.1 V? at least that is what in my BIOS written )

BTW! I've changed my BIOS ver for 1.92 beta - I didn't notice any difference ... maybe a little bit more stable but ... who knows for sure.

Ok! This OC went bad... I mean it was a failure but before running Prime I started OCCT for 8 min and ... have a look at that -->


it was only for the 1st core - can anybody explain me what was that ? My temperatures on other cores were 42 max at full load... 250 degrees!!!??

What do you think ? what should I do to run this 3.7 GHz stable? More CPU V ? More NB V? what should I do???
as you can see my memory is running at the lowest settings possible I mean frequency (timings are good though More DRAM V? it can support up to 1.9 V so i can bump it up a little bit. Actually I don't know how much should I put for the first time - maybe should I increase it up to 1.6 at the beginning and then changing timings a little bit for instance 8-8-8-25 ? any recommendations?

Is your 945 the 125w or 95w version ????

Do you have C&Q disabled and Spread spectrum disabled in the bios,and what do you have ACC set to,????

It's 95 W version and yes I have C&Q and Spread Spectrum disabled in my bios. ACC is set to disabled or auto can't remember at the moment... most probably to disabled? Why are you asking? Have you seen CPU core temperatures? They are max 42 C !!! so it can't be hot... and it was only at first core... readings from the rest were normal 37 C ??? I don't understand this

I am just trying to work a few things out for you,what ram speed do you have,your spec says 1600,but because you chip is a non BE,your overclocking via HTT,thats FSB to you,you have obviously droped the ram divider to compensate,can you tell me what your divider is set to at the moment,??

Ok,i can see your on 1.2 divider,i would change your divider to either 1.2.66,this will give you 1317mhz on the ram,or 1.3.33 this will give you 1646mhz,at the moment your running your ram at 988mhz,way below spec,i believe the timings for your ram should be 7 7 7 20 with a comand rate of 2t.I think your ram is the cause of your problem in stability.Also,the 1.9v is stock voltage i believe for this ram,just because your underclocking your ram,does'nt meen you should lower the voltage as low as you have,i think your tight timings at such low frequency is the biggest problem,but i stand to be corrected,lol!!!

Well..... What are they? lol So before you need about 1.64v @ 4.56GHz for the C3965 and only 1.56v for the 955 @ 4.646GHz....

So keeping the NB chipset thaat much lower allowed the 965 to clock just as high as before but with lower volts?

I see lot of guys with core higher than cpu, but for me its the other way around. I normally concentrate on core rather than on cpu though.
IN everest it reads "CPU: 30*C" and under that, "CPU/ Core #1-4: 27*C" and it's always been like that for both my sAM3 and my s939 setups....

Yes, even though you run Ram at much lower than stock speeds you will need to crank the Dram Volts to get tihter timings regardless. That is a good point. Raise the timings (loosen) or Raise the voltage to counterblance the tighter timings...

250*C though... That has to be a software error. Or maybe the Ram with such low volts and tight timings was producing that anomily... IDK. Do the ram adjustment ans retest. That anomily should go away. if it doens't and you keep getting that temp on the same core I would RMA it.

The TWKR chip that AMD sent out as test chips were considered "High Leakage" chips. They produced WAY more heat because of it and therefore have a much shorter lifespan. But on the flip side, they carried the Voltage WAY better! So they sent these chips out strictly to be tested by the Top OCer's in the Country and others to be OCed ONLY with Ln2 or LHe... The chips were never to be sold as retail becuase of all of this. But they found these High Leakage chips in typical PhenomII x4 wafers....

Could be that you may have a chip that was just below the boarderline....

Rma or return would be my opinion if that anomily keeps up... Have you tested that chip at stock speeds with that same test? Just to see if the temps pop up again on that same core, more so than they other cores?

955 came in today. Same batch 0945MPMW. Testing it out right fast on lunch, it's definitely way better than my 965...

I am selling my 965 and getting a 955. You and mastiff need to post up some benches and clocks.

WONKA!!!???? Really???? Did you get a pic of the OPN Number that is Right underneither that batch number that you typed above... or write it down?

If I would have ordered mine a day sooner, I would have received it today! but monday. And I'm thinking that my Tuniq TX-3 TIM will come on Monday instead of today....

LOL- I'm sure that Wonka will have some good OC results as he always does! Phase changer.... I'm keeping my 965 until I know for sure that this 955 will be a BAMF... I really hope that I get a WILLY WONKA chip!!!!!

Yea I might just wait for thuban to come out and see what the 6 cores are like. I hope they will clock like the c3's do.

Nah, just get a C3 955 or stay with what you have....

6 Cores is Really a lot of overkill. Thye also have plans for 8 and 12 core Server CPU's don't they?
