so i unlocked 2 cores and now i want to overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
i had stock heatsink on it. I went back to stock cpu but left the quad cores on

tried playing 2k11 for a bit and it was sexy as hell. Was getting a lovely 60fps but after 1 quarter the framerates dropped to 10fps.

Cores getting too hot so I now dropped to tri core.

i now upgraded to a raven sv02 case and a coolmaster hyper 212+

can i overclock now?

A tri-core (about 95W power consumption) would still be pushing the limits. A 2+1 phase should only be considered safe for 65W processors, and risky for 80-95W. I highly recommend you invest in a new motherboard soon. Also, by purchasing the Hyper 212+, now your mosfets do not get any air whatsoever, and you are making the situation worse. If your board fails I cannot be blamed, I am merely warning you.

I realize this is actually more of a 3 phase motherboard on the older AM2 socket; apparently this'll support up to the Athlon X2 6000+ (which is also a 125W CPU), but only with mild overclocks (1.45V max for a starter); I'm assuming that figure is with mosfet cooling as well. If you don't intend to swap the motherboard anytime soon, at least put some sort of mosfet cooling on it, since they're fairly weak for the newer CPUs and the Hyper 212+ doubles up on the risk.

wow watch the language friend. and that is not the worst motherboard ever trust me lol mine is far worse, anyway a dual core at 3.2Ghz is plenty fast for most games. i would either invest in MSOFET cooling or a new motherboard.

you can mount the 212+ fan a little low (if it uses plastic clips), then it will blow some air over the mosfet area, might help cooling them some

The VRMs are actually above the CPU socket, that really won't be possible or plausible.
The best choice would either be a new mobo or some mosfet cooling (i.e. Enzotech MOS-C1).

yeah but i still wouldn't recommend overclocking, this would be much better and wont break the bank.
