new to forums, slightly new to ocing. cannot get full load out of 4870x2 with a phenom II x4 965 oced stable to 3.8. i have a sapphire 4870x2 (not oced). i just got this x4 965. i run inteltestburn v2.5 on high 20 times and its shows cpu is stable. corsair a70 to cool cpu, 3 scythe case fans to move air thru rosewill blackbone (yes i'm on a budget). anyway i just came from having an x4 925 which i oced to 3.39 stable. i wanted more cpu power and oc ability, so i got the 965. i finally got 99% gpu load out of the oced 925. but now i cant get that with the 965 very often. temps under load get up to 52 with 1.45v 19cpu multi. had it oced to 3.8 and still only getting 89-94%, which makes games STUTTER!!! What do i do to make this work right? is it a dud processor???
