Officially, there isn't any advantage, but everyone has different chips and some people find better stability/overclocks through higher HT ref. clocks and lower multipliers. I prefer to use 250/300/320, as those HT ref. clocks work well with the settings I want. Since the multipliers are unlocked, it's really more for tweaking your system the way you want it rather than boosting performance. The only way to find out is to spend days or even weeks testing different settings.

I know it has been a while guys but I have been and still am extremely busy but I had to chime in and tell ya that these cores will not shut down unless BSOD or MB tells it to.

Mine hit 90*C before I was able to get it shut down when I had a really bad seat with my WB. I cant believe it still lives let alone at the same OC.

I had core temp, everest and my LCD poster said the same thing.... So be very careful as I thought that these would shut down too! Maybe mine is special but I doubt it 90*C and no BSOD and no self shutdown I had to pull the plug.


BTW guys the mac temp amd says is so that it lives for 10+ years at stock speeds.

good to know. thanks for clarifying that. im gonna push my cpu hard and see how long it lasts. hopefully it will last until bulldozer is released. it would be hard to convince the wife that i need a new system right after buying a new cpu.

edit: it seems mine wont go over 65c. i get bsod at 65c everytime. i tried my normal oc (4.0ghz) and stock. with the stock settings i just turned off my fans and ran prime95 small FFTs and as soon as it hits 65c its done. i am using everest, speedfan, speccy, hwmonitor, and i have a probe taped to my heatsink that reads 6c lower than actual cpu temp. i didn't run them all at the same time, it was 1 temp monitor up per run and i did multiple runs with each setting.

WOW, that's nutts man! Thanks for sharing the info. I haave had my 965 to 64*C and she was still priming fine. I shut of prime though.... Didn't like that one bit!

It's good to see you back on the thread man! How's "busy Life" treating you other than what it is?

yea as i stated earlier, my 955 hit 74c running prime and didnt fail or bsod lol...
I just got my new ultra kaze 3000rpm fan today, so gonna strap it to my cpu block and see what happens there...should make my temps better than my default fan.

Glad that fan is working for you. The static preassure on those are rediculous! If you want something a bit quiter that has great static preasure, then go for Scythes "Gentle Typhoons" they are super quite with great static preasure. You could get push pull config with those easily, or another Unltra Kaze!

With a C2 you may very well need more than a typical C3. Technically, 2600Mhz is within the "stock range of operation". The Stock CPU-NB Voltage range is from 1.15v to 1.30v. So 2600Mhz should only require vots within that range. But for 2800Mhz you might need a greater jump. Depending on the Die cut number. What are the last 5 digits in the srial number on the CPU 'c MFR Box? That might give us a better idea if what type of CPU-NB that you have... It will be a 9XXXX number....

With my 955 C2, I typically use 1.3-1.35v for 2750-2800nb.



I've been doing some testing regarding the claim that the true NB temp is from AOD's TMPIN2 and I think AOD is incorrect.

To test it out, I set my NB voltage from Auto (1.10v) and went up to 1.42v. AOD's TMPIN2 temp did not change at all during the voltage bump(kept the same @ 37C), whereas Everest reported NB temps changed from 45C(NB-1.10v) and then up to 56C(NB-1.42v/Everest-1.55v).

I could be wrong, but I really doubt a 0.32v difference would cause no change in temps. Has anyone else done some testing regarding the NB temps issue?

well i was not running prime... it went up there idle

busy life is way busy! between work I am working on my BS in IT majoring in Network Management.
I do come in and look around a little but have very little time to myself and usually that is spent venting on steam pwn'n Noobz
