It passed a ten round run on LinX at 280FSB with a x10 multi. I'm running 285 right now.

To Sozin,
You have already isolated the motherboard and verified that it'll do 300+ on the HTT Clock. You have the RAM running within the stock timing and below the stock MHz, that means the RAM is not what's holding you back. Both NorthBridge/HT Frequency has been adjusted to around 2.0 GHz, which means that they're not the culprit either. The only thing that is left is your chip. I wouldn't recommend running 1.55V for everyday use, the highest I would go would be 1.5V on air.

Seems to me that either Fear of Oneself doesn't know how to OC, or he did not read through the post as he should have.

I feel like 275 is the limit. I mean I guess it's nothing to sneeze at, but still...

Any chance you can try 1.55V for a short period of time?

I haven't even tried 1.5 yet.

Give that a shot. That might just be what it needs.
Good Luck.

Passed the quick ten run LinX test at 1.5 vcore and 280FSB.


EDIT//

BSOD'd at 285, even at 1.5 vcore. I won't try any higher.

My bad, i just assumed that motherboards had vdrop, silly me. And i assumed that the phenom II's and the Athlon II's were similar, so up to 1.6v your good, but 1.55v 24/7, pardon me. And im under liquid dude, so ill admit, i forgot to mention that.
so seeing as i've been running this at 1.55v for 8 months and no issues, you must be correct. I don't know how to OC, check my signature, maybe you can teach you a few things

(what is OCing, i don't even know what it does. I just spent $300+ so my case looks prettie )



sozin, talk to el gappo, and NCspecv81, we chill alot on skype, and laugh at posts like platinum's. PLus they go through like 2 chips a week, they OC'd 25+ each, so they are good to talk to

My apologies if the previous post was offensive to you. On the other hand, it's always good that some people are getting entertained. Most of the boards I used acted the exact opposite of vdroop when the chip is loaded, so to me it wasn't exactly safe to have it at 1.55V. On topic, what do you suggest in this situation? Would be helpful to educate us since I have a high probability of running into the same situation in the future.

huh. So he dropped all of his multipliers (CPU, RAM, NB, HT) and ripped on his ref. clock. That gave him a limit of like 300 or something, now with everything back up at stock, accept the CPU and ref. clock. We can obviously see that the CPU is holding him back. Thus you up the voltage. I didn't realize that you had that issue, that's a mistake on my part, cause my old XFX board did that now that i remember. my bad for the blow up. I did alot of research into the maximum voltage on the Deneb cores, and as i can see, the athlon II's are Denebs with the L3 disabled. That's where i pulled the 1.55v from. For my setup im at 1.55v in the BIOS, but Vdrop brings it to 1.52 in windows and 1.5 under load.
