What about voltages and stability?

Voltages are at 1.65, and it can take 4 or so hours of continuous prime before crashing at those clocks and voltages. I'm fiddling around with different fsb and multi combinations as well as ram and htt/nb to try and hit something nice and stable. When i upgrade cpu in a short time i'm going to try and see if with some custom cooling i can push it to 4.5 try and set a new record for this baby.

Just saw this thread, I'm fairly new here. Been using an Athlon II X4 for about a year.

It's an Athlon II X4 620, overclocked from stock to 3250 MHz (250*13), on the motherboard in my sig. Attempts to unlock L3 cache were unsuccessful, so I presume it doesn't have one.

Pretty much everything is stock. I didn't overvolt anything, and it's all on the stock AMD HSF that came with the processor. It won't go any higher; it's rock-solid at 3250 but not stable if you go over 3300. Might work if I gave it more juice, but 3250 is more than enough for what I'm doing with it. Really don't need to o/c at all, but there's no fun in that.

OS is Windows 7 x64 HP, also works fine in PCLinuxOS Zen 2010, which I also run sometimes.

I'll post a CPU-Z screenshot whenever I get back home, which might not be until tomorrow.

Hey fellow X4 users! I haven't really posted on here much, but I've lurked for years.

Anyway, I've run into a bit of a problem. I wanted to do a light OC on my 635 (up to about 3.3GHz) and keep it on the stock cooler. I've gotten it close that speed and it's very stable, but I'm a little worried about the temps.

Before I OC'd it, it would idle at about 34-36c and max out at about 50c. After applying the OC, it idles at 39-42c and is capping at 56-60c at 70-100% load. It's only at 50c while playing games, but since I often leave it on overnight to rip Blurays, is the 60c temp a concern as far as damaging the components? Is there anything to adjust with the OC to drop these temps, or do I have to buy an aftermarket cooler? Thanks for any help, and my CPU-Z validation is below!

Ok, cool. I lowered my voltage back down to stock, it still seems to be stable. Dropped a couple degrees on idle, still about the same under load.

Provided I don't push the speed any higher, is the aftermarket cooler still necessary? I know Intel chips push 60c pretty regularly, but is it different for AMD chips? I'm pretty sure the recommended max temp on this is 70c, so am I damaging it by letting it run at 60c for 8hrs or so on a regular basis?

Also, are there any good coolers in the $20 price range? Ideally I'd like to do 3.6-3.7 if I buy another cooler. I know everyone is always talking about the 212, which is about $40, is that still the best $/temp ratio?
