Would you classify my 920 as a golden chip? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Nice but with those temps you wouldn't make 4.2.

Also, my ambients were pretty hot there. Temp's are between 60C and 65C while folding -bigadv's.
Hitting 4Ghz at a decent voltage IMO doesn't classify it as a golden chip. What makes a golden chip golden is hitting really high frequencies at decent voltages. 4.2-4.3GHz at 1.2v or 4.4-4.5GHz with 1.35 IMO would be golden.

I agree with you.

Those last 200Mhz is the hurt.
@ 4.0 I didn't have to touch anything, no special tweaking etc

It took me a while of tweaking to get it just right though @ 4.2Ghz+, I have made it to 4.5Ghz but gets really hot on my H50. You will have to set everything in BIOS manually, anything that is set to auto will make it unstable or might not even boot.

In the end you most likely will find that 200Mhz more wasn't worth the hassle, for me it is what I love doing, otherwise this wouldn't be a hobby. and I know I see no difference in any game or application with the added 200Mhz.

Golden CPU's will clock as high as your cooling will allow. Everything else is not golden. The only way to see if it's golden is see how high you can get it.

It's "ok" but far from golden.

Here's was my only true "GOLDEN" cpu I've ever owned.

4.616ghz 1.36vcore....


4.5ghz 1.34vcore....



4.2ghz 1.192vore....


4ghz 1.16vcore....

3.8ghz 1.1vcore....

@ OP, I wouldn't say 'golden' but it is very good. However, I would also ask if you have LLC on or off, as that will affect your idle voltages. Load voltages are the important ones.
