Leakage cpus! Fill me in please:)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, since Im getting into LN2 cooling very soon I have tried to read up on some fields.
I know that a high leakage cpu will OC higher than one thats not. So my question is: Are there any way to find out if a cpu has high leakage before getting it under LN2? And how do U know if it has leakage even under LN2?. Can I test this under other form of cooling etc?

If there is any info U want to share about this, please write it down

There was a hand-picked series of PhenomIIs that AMD picked out for LN2 clockers, don't remember their code-name, but they go for insane prices on ebay.
I believe that what you want to look for is a chip that seems to want crazy voltages for any overclock, and is very hot under any normal cooling. The hand-picked ones did exactly that, they are useless for anyone who isn't using powerful phase or Dice at the very least, as they pull too much power, and make too much heat.

The point being, that they can survive those crazy voltages, and go to insane speeds, but only under LN2, they'd melt under any lesser cooling.

Those AMD chips were the TWKR edition chips but good luck finiding one as they are rare and expensive (they werent sold retail I think just given away in small numbers)

Hey. I sold my TWKR about a month ago. And yes they are very very hard to find. Plus a Phenom II C3 are better to oc under LN2 cooling then the TWKR.
