When you get some cash buy a k series chip(there will be more of them in the coming months).

Hell you could even go 1156+i3 5xx overclock it to 4Ghz+ and be much better off as long as HT is enabled. If you don't game then there is no reason to overclock. If you're going to be buying a new board anyways I would get something else.

He could also buy quality parts instead, such as my old Athlon setup with a 790FX board wink.gif. Just sayin, its up in the marketplace.

And the i3 isn't that great for gaming. It's still a dual core.

What is the fastest your CPU will run, with little/no temp gain ? Did it unlock ?

Yep.. for everyday use and gaming, you can't beat the price to performance ratio of a stock Athlon II x3/4. biggrin.gif

Yep.. the new CPU-z now shows current Total Power Draw. smile.gif

I was pretty sure that an AM3 CPU does not change TDP when unlocked b/c the temps stayed the same. Now this confirms my theory heh...

No, it doesn't. It shows max power draw at stock.

My i5 shows 95w TDP. Which I find it odd, that I had to RAISE my TDP limit in BIOS from 120w to 180w to get it to 4.8GHz stable. I know damn good and well I'm drawing more than 95w of power wink.gif.

All that TDP reading is, is the stock value. It's no different than reading the instructions sets, stepping, or the exact chip.

Good to see so many new faces in here doing Great with the overclocks.
Getting a new power supply tomorrow tx750 (old model) Will see about a new overclock top out once it gets in. smile.gif

Should be posted in the OP to avoid unneeded questions or confusion.

Step 2: Manually adjust HT Link Multiplier to keep under 2100, and CPU-NB Multiplier to keep >= HT, and Under 2100.
Step 3: Manually adjust RAM multiplier to keep below stock frequency.
Step 4: Take voltages of CPU, CPU-NB, RAM, NB-SB-HT off auto.
Step 5: Lock in RAM timings (CL, tRCD, tRP, tRAS, tRC, CR)
Step 6: Adjust FSB frequency up. I did it in 25 mhz jumps.
Step 7: Save settings and start up computer.
Step 8: If computer blue screens, turn up voltage on CPU-NB, go back to step 7. If computer crashes, turn up CPU voltage, go back to step 7. If you login and register CPU-Z, go back to Step 6 until satisfied.
Step 9: Prime95 test it. If it crashes before 3 hours, adjust CPU voltage up and return to step 7. If it blue screens, adjust RAM voltage up (once total) and return to step 7. If you already adjusted the RAM voltage once, adjust up the CPU-NB voltage and return to step 7

Hey you're right lol... I'm at 3.5ghz 1.3875v and CPUz still shows 93w. smile.gif

Peace

Last time I checked mine shows 111 watts tdp through programs.
Will check with cpuz now though. smile.gif
It seems as though My overclock was undone without my knowing tongue.gif Will check it once I get the power supply in than.
