What do you think of my o.c.? Phenom II x4 40

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 




Revision C2 with 4 sticks of DDR3 stable @ 1600mhz with a 2.6Ghz NB :
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1576972

Do the AMD Guru's out there have any suggestions on What I can try next? I can not get 3.7 or 3.8Ghz stable, tried all the way up to 1.55v with not luck, also tried lower ram timings/speeds

This is a unlocked Phenom II x3 740 just in case anyone was wondering

I dare say you'll not do much better than that with 8 gig of ram. That mobo is over-rated, and the PSU is smallish.
Nice un-locked OC.

Thank you, I was just reading another thread about prime95 shutting off the PC without a lock/BSOD and it turned out to be the Power Supply. I have had the same problem a couple of times I think it might be time for me to get a new one, I want to run my old NV 9800GT as a dedicated PhsyX card, I know I can get more out of this rig

Update : So my crappy PSU ( will be getting a new one soon I hope ) was holding back my O.C. past 3.6Ghz. So I worked on my memory and am pretty impressed with what I can do with on 2 sticks of my A-Data





Can't wait for a new PSU, but should I get a Single rail? Of a multi-rail one for my setup? and how many watts/amps?
