breaking the 3.5ghz cap

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok right now my CPU (phenom II x4 b50(unlocked 550be)) is running stable at 3.5ghz at 1.4 volts, but if i try to go 3.6ghz i will get BSOD after a few minutes in OCCT and prime, temperature is not a issue at full load its 60*c so do i need to raise voltage or am i just not able to OC it that high?

I really hope you aren't running your chip at 4 volts. it would be dead. and your temps are an issue, 60c is pretty much as high as you want an amd going.

OH i meant 1.4v, ill edit that

i thought that 70*c was the limit though?

I hope you mean 1.4v, you can go to a max of 1.55v on air but your temps already seem to be an issue. You've got to get a better cooler if you expect to oc higher, personally I would lower the clock and vcore a tad so your under 60c just to prevent thermal shutdown

Nope, 62c is the max for phenom II
