post #4161 of 9641
Hey guys, do I have a decent batch 965 C3? This is all the info I pulled off the CPU...

HDZ965FBK4DGM
CACAC AC 0946DPMW

And the serial ends with the "batch cut?" 90294

Does it still hold true that closer to 90,000 is better? Cause 294, in my opinion, is pretty close...

If you'd like, anyone that wants to, respond that can or cannot, first one to respond that can't, I'm personally going to help you get this OC stated above stable! It seems to damn easy for this setup for someone that is part of this thread to NOT have!!!!!
To be honest, at the moment, I'm waiting on UPS to deliver the mounting kit for my Megahalems, but as soon as I get that and the PC is back together, I would be willing to give it a shot. If you have detailed instructions, I'd gladly set it up. lol

I know I sound like a complete idiot here, but I do know very little about overclocking. I come here to learn, to see what advise people can give me, and best methods to achieve the OC'ing I desire.

I look at this as an "Overclocking Practices 101" class. I want to learn more...just need someone to teach me.

The Closest that one can get is a 90001.

My 965 C3 is a 0946DPMW as well. It clocks fine. but it's a 90474. the 955 I got is a 0945MWMP..... 90363. So hopefully it will clock a little better....

No worries. Put her together and fire her up and when you're ready, I'll do what I can... I"m sure others will pitch in as well if I don't answer right away. I'm definitely not the only one here that is experienced with this board.

Others are Eclipseaudio4, Wonka (NCspecV81), Mduclow and Dir_d, just to name a few. Sorry if I didn't mention anyone elses names here.

Sounds great. HOPEFULLY (barring another UPS screwup) I will have my retention bracket for the Mega' and have it back up. I will start here when it is operational. Thanks Mastiff! You've been a great help to me thus far, hopefully I can get my system up to snuff!

Thats a bit worrying, if anyone else has feeback on raid cards with this motherboard it would be appreciated as i realy need to know what the situation is on this.

The other cooler im looking at is the Mega Shadow, however it seems i need to get the AMD retention bracket for that, i assume the Megahelms bracket will work on the Shadow .. and i further assume since its been menioned in this thread that the Mega shadow will work in the standard front/back orientation on the GD70 ?

Myself, I don't have any experience with Raid or the Mega. The board has a soid software raid setup from what I understand. I know for sure that mduclow has expereince with raid on the board.... SO you might want to ask him.. There are others but I can't seem to remember whom they are right now. Maybe Blackomega...?

So, with my batch being even closer to 90001 than yours, I can expect a decently better / stable OC than people with batches above mine? Or is it just hope? My last 955 was in the thousands range into 90,000, not only 294, this CPU is awesome! I knew it was when I got 4ghz, 2800nb stable on air, with decent temps. My 955 didnt even pretend to be stable past 3.8...

Sooo.....

Guess what guys?

(What Rewind?)

I MIGHT BE GETTING A 4870X2

(NO WAY...Your rig will finally be kicking it semi high performance style bro-dog)

I know right

I'm glad everyone else is as excited as i am

Well, that's the thing.... I don't know where the margins are as far a numbers. So I'm not sure if there is some sort of Ratio as far as the Amount of overclockability per digit or if it goes by 50 digits or 100. Who knows... Two CPU's that are within 100-150 Die Cuts from one another may very clock the same for all I know.

LOL- Nice! can your PSU handle the draw from that sucker!

There are a lot of nice thermal options for that card! You should look into it! They run hot and loud!!!! Good when tuned right though!
