Here are my testing results on H2O before selling the chip http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1952965
Ohh very nice. 4.7Ghz is a good speed.

[[B]QUOTE=kotipelto;14628003]noguru,
i built this machine for gaming only. should i back down my cpu to 3.8 or 3.9 ghz and go for a higher htt and bus speed? my bus is at 275 right now and htt/nb is 2483. if i back down the cpu multiplier and voltage to stock i can get over 300 on the bus. sorry for taking so long to reply[/QUOTE]

A couple suggestions to shoot for would be,

OC the CPU as high as possible. Depending on your cooling solution try for a 4.0 or higher. I would suggest a HTT of 250 which keeps a usable range for Memory and NB Freq (depending on where your RAM is happy). This is where experimenting comes into play.

The actual NB Voltage will vary from chip to chip this why you need to stress test to learn your chips capabilities and demands. Many Thuban owners can run on auto (1.15 I believe) I can't help with this setting due to having a Thuban myself and no experience with OC a 965 BE. Perhaps Ceadderman can chime in here. Another thought would be to check on the OP in the "Owners List" and see what others are able to run.

Maintain a HT Link Speed of 2000MHz +/- 100MHz

Raise NB Freq to 2600-2800MHz (the higher the better) and raise the CPU/NB voltage to stabilize

I mentioned this basically for non BE CPU owners which have to increase the Bus Freq to OC the CPU. If you look at the Owners List you'll find most stay in the 250MHz Ref Clock range while running a BE CPU.

I can't tell you to much becasue I have only been clocking AMD for just over a week.
I don't even know what safe temps or volts are, lol.
Generally 1.55v Vcore is considered the max safe voltage, and depending on the CPU used most agree to try and stay no higher than 55c on the CPU Socket as monitored by Asus PC Probe II when OC'd. Temperatures has always been a much discussed topic. Example, a 1090T according to AMD has a max core temp of 62c which includes a large safety factor as I've read of a few members on here who have had WCing pump failures while Folding and have found them running near 80c without doing any foreseeable damage. Here's a thread on this topic http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/93...out-1090t.html
Myself I stay no higher than 55c while reading the CPU Socket temp.

I will try and keep the volts under 1.9 but I can't promise anything. As far as temps go I did notice on water the 1100T I had started getting errors around 60c but that was just running some basic benchmarks.

Thanks for the info. I take it you go to Silver Lake Sand Dunes?

Yes I do! Been hanging there for such a long time I'd hate to admit how long lol.

Awesome OC man. Gives us all inspiration to keep pushing further. I'm keeping my OC where it is till some of the new chips become available here soon. I think I have these ECO's balancing on the edge. Maybe after I clean my loop later this month I'll try for more, but this summers been a tad to hot to want to push any further with what I have, besides it's getting kind of dusty inside due to just starting back to work and a severe lack of time lol.

When you mention H2O, exactly what are you running? Surely not just a WC loop are you?

Yeah Water loop just for testing. I will be using LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) this weekend. If I can remember I will post a link for the live stream form Micro Center in Madison Heights.

I would chime in but I'm just running stock clocks for the time being since it's summer and I don't wish to crash and burn in monumental fashion. I got my 955BE to 4.1Ghz by changing the multiplier and while it worked fine my cooling solution probably wasn't up to the task. I ended up backing it down to 3.8Ghz so I could get it stable and went to stock speed when I swapped out to 965 and dropped my H50 so I could get into water which I haven't been able to do as fast as I would like.

ok, io got my machine screaming. ran the prime 95 for 5 minutes minutes. if it goes that long without crashing it will not crash in any of the games i play. getting 55/60fps in bulletstorm 1920X1080 aax4 everything else set to high. bulletstorm has a big hiccup when the memory turns over with 1600 memory freq. goes away at anything above 1800 and none existant at 2000.

I run Prime for 12 hours or better, but how long is up to you. Might want to try LinX or OCCT as well for testing stability.

here is what its at http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1959960 really unstable at 2700 ht link. 2400 is what im at right now. still working on it. all i really care about is if it is running the games i play without crashing after a couple hours with my settings maxed and aaX4 or x8. if i was doing important work on the system i would be making sure it could run the test for awhile. but no the machine is a screamer for sure. thanks
