Do i have a Super Good OC CPU or is this normal?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm running a Phenom II 940

3.6Ghz
1.41V -- STABLE
46C Load W/ Xigmatek Dark Knight + AC5

Using the search function, i see that many people are running 1.5V for 3.6Ghz , do i have a super good chip, or is this normal

This is fairly normal. You can push a 940 to about 4.2 GHz with the proper cooling. As far as voltages, if that is your question, where are you getting you voltage readings, a program such as CPU-Z may not give reliable readings for voltages. I have personally encountered this and have a 940 at home. Used vapor phase change cooling to get it chilly and run at 4.2 stable 1.6v load temps were -29C. These chips, provided you have a Black Edition, are usually very good overclockers.

Thanks!
I wish i had the money for vapor change

Very similar results to my 940; 3.65GHz @ 1.425v and I consider mine an above average clocker. The early batches had the "super good" chips. =)
