maybe the one that blazed up was a faulty board, it was a day after i got it so I RMA with the store, maybe this board will be good to me...

Sometimes sensors are very bad calibrated - for example my 1100T at 3.300 with 1.2V shows 24C (ambient is 22C) - so this must be wrong at air cooling. (Real temperature will be arround 34C). At load with 4.1Ghz it shows 48-52C - would be great, but its not real (its about 60C) - all temperatures are directly from CPU core sensor. (Coretemp or speedfan)

So temperature readings can help you "to be orientated", but never trus them at all times.

OK! I did some tests last night and it seem to be a decent chip.
I ran two configurations. One was:
3500_13V_2200_112V_7_7_7_20_271TAuto_stable.jpg

3500 MHz (CPU V =1.3 V in BIOS)
2200 MHz (CPU NB =1.12 V in BIOS)
NB V = 1.11V
Everything else left on auto.

My second configuration ( I didn't take screenshot because I was just too sleepy - and just turned off my computer after seeing LinX completed 20 passes without any errors) was:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1598843

CPU = 3600 MHz (CPU V = 1.31 V in Bios)
NB = 2600 MHz (CPU NB V = 1.13 V (wow)

Everything else as above.
Max temp was sth around 43*C (under load), but as you said it could not be my real temp.

I have even checked my MaxFSB value which according to my board is sth around 304-305 (not much but I think it could go higher).

One more question smile.gif
How can I adjust offsets in CoreTemp ? How can I measure real temperature... I assume I would have to use digital thermometer or thermal sensor, but would this indication be accurate?
What I want to say that when I touched heatpipes at my Scythe Mugen they were cool ... not cold but a little warm. So either Mugen does his job quite good or it does not really conduct hot because of improper placement on CPU or maybe OCZ Freeze has lost its thermal abilities (what is another word to describe it? smile.gif - I got it for one year, so maybe it's a little bit outdated?

OK! Everyone... thanks for your input. I apprieciate it very much cheers.gif

4 cores (940, 955, 965, 970.. etc) amd's do not have the offset issue - its only the 6 cores amd as like he was talking about his own chip 1100T = 6 cores amd ... yours is a 955 - you don't need it - default is working accurately.

Anyways use HWmonitor, the temps you have to be looking at is the temps on all the cores.... if you were a 6 cores owner chip.. he would look at the CPU temps instead of the cores(offset issue on the cores temps). Also on your Everest OSD panel display all your cores temps as well... the CPU temp will confuse you, since the cores will be a bit lower

Pretty sure I'm on BIOS 1.D, if I update to the latest (1.G?) will that help me get to 4GHz?

Well, I just don't know because I've read somewhere that it could be an issue. I checked these temp values in BIOS HW Monitor and they seem very similar. So, they may be more or less accurate.

Trying it out is the best advice anyone can give you.

You still have a lot of headroom left for your temps, voltage, and speed, so don't be afraid to get up there. Typically, C3 quad chips see 3.8ghz at around 1.37-1.4v and 4ghz around 1.45v-1.5v+. I'm pretty sure you know each chip is different, so the only way you can find out is by testing it out yourself.

I do like the 1.G BIOS, and it allowed my old 955 C2 to see 4ghz again, though that might have been due winter temps and switching from the Scythe Mugen 2 to the Corsair H50.
