[OFFICIAL] AMD Athlon II X4 Club - Page 81

post #801 of 1595
The most stable OC I've had is my current.
Bus frequency: 250
CPU multiplier: 13
cpu voltage: 1.300
NB multiplier: 10
NB voltage: 1.200
HT link multiplier: 8
Ram divider 3:8

With this setup I idle around 30C and load at 50C. Always runs great, Prime95 stable.

I'll join the club. Everything is a stock at the moment. Gonna play around OCing a little later today.

Just got my 620. Will hopefully post my clocks here within the next week or two. Got a CADAC Stepping.

I've managed to get up to 3458Mhz so far , Its stable in EVEREST but PRIME wants more volts !!

quick question relating to motherboard temperatures, on idle my temps are fine, 32C CPU / 28C mobo, but when I stress test, within the first 10 seconds my mobo temp can reach 43C from 28C, my CPU will raise to about 38C, after a while mobo will hover around 46C with CPU around 46C....as soon as I stop the stress test the mobo temperature dives to 30-28 in a matter of 5-10 seconds, where as CPU will slowly makes it way down...

Is the above normal for a motherboard ? I would have thought the case temp didn't change that much !??!

So do you guys that are overclocking actually notice any difference in games/applications?

I used to be pretty crazy into the OC realm and would tweak for hours to get the best OC I could get on my sig rig, but now with my new system that powers through everything I throw at it, I'm just not sure if I see the benefit.

I have an Athlon II X4 635 at stock right now plus an HD5770 and it flies through BF:BC2 at 1920x1080, Maxed, 4xAA, 16xAF. It also runs through photoshop and AutoCAD without flinching. So I'm just curious for you guys putting additional stress and heat on your CPU, is it worth it?

I have always loved getting something for nothing (the idea of OC'ing), but wouldn't the $40 you might spend on a new HSF be better spent toward a Phenom II 955BE or something? I'm sure the additional L3 cache would help out a lot more than the 4-500Mhz you gain by OC'ing the Athlon II, right?

I'm OCing at voltages less than stock, so not much added heat here.

My Cooler Master Hyper 212+ was $20. If I bought another higher-end CPU, I would have bought an aftermarket cooler regardless if I was OCing or not.

My cooler was only 30 bucks, and the CPU 119 on sale. Also I don't believe L3 cache would be better then even 2-300 Mhz overclock. Mine is currently 900 over stock..

Honestly I barely spent any time overclocking. Now that it's done, I don't touch it, or even bench(unless in game).

I'll probably get an X6(the main reason I bought the Athlon in the first place) and another 5770+board(sell old one) and be done with any purchasing/tweaking for a long while.
