[OFFICIAL] AMD Athlon II X4 Club - Page 76

post #751 of 1595
lucky for you...I got to set Vcore on 1.5 to get 3.525 and 1.57 to get 3.65.

1.5 is far enough of Vcore and I already think its abit high, not to mention 1.57 which scared me after 1 day and I went back to 1.5 on 3.5.

150 mhz more aint worth for a nearly 0.1mv Vcore increase.

I can get it up to 3.8@1.5 but my PSU throttles my videocard at that point. Ran prime overnight max temp was 43, so I'll be getting a new PSU next month. Also at this point my 5770 is limiting me. I'll be selling it when I can buy something else around April.

Pleasantly surprised by the Vendetta 2. At stock my Temps are idle 21/Load 33 for less then 30 bucks.

Hey guys, I just purchased this system yesterday, will be assembling as soon as it arrives and overclocking soon after.



I was wondering though, is there any special method for applying thermal compound on these Athlon II's?

I remember there used to be a certain way to apply it to Conroe's back in the day... just checking on this.

Added you to the spreadsheet. Nice OC. Are you going to tighten your RAM timings?

Nice system Look forward to seeing your build log As far as TIM goes, whatever you want is fine. I'm using AS5 as I only had a little bit left in the tube and figure why not but I also have AiT Cool Silver, IC7, OCZ Freeze, and a few others that I've stocked. I think MX3 or MX2 is a really good one as well as it doesn't require any burn in time like AS5. I had to leave mine on OC'd for a couple of days to get it to burn in.

Yeah I'm working on the timings. Not sure how much more I can get though.

Hi all

Firstly I'm new to overclocking - never attempted it before but I pretty much understand most of the terms used.

My system spec should be listed in my signature.

Basically i recently changed my processor from a 6400 to a athlon II X4 620.

updated the bios and everything is working great.
I've heard that the 620 can overclock really well and apparently the board I have is very good for overclocking (although 'm not sure about the ram - i guess ram is the one issue in which I'm a bit lost on).

Basically I was wondering if someone could help me in regard to overclocking on this board. I.e even if it means simply pointing me to the right guides to follow so i can start. (would love to get to 3ghz with this processor)

currently i'm using stock cooling and the temps are fine but I do have the old cooler from my 6400 - whcih was a synthe Ninja - can this be used on the new athlon x4?


Thanks alot
