If i reamember right, if 3 or less cores are being used, the extra 3 do something (turn off, use less power idk lol) so that it clocks your cpu to the turbo boost speed.

I can't believe that the cooler I got doesn't get more use on this board.

It's roughly $55-60 and is one of the top performing coolers for AM3 chips. Mine has my 955 stable at 4.2 while keeping my load temps under 55c even after intelburntest or prime for a couple hours

No, that isn't what i was trying to say but rather utility overclocking isn't recommended by most on OCN. Anther reason not to use AMD OverDrive either for stress testing or OC'ing. Maybe as a comparison monitor. And the Turbo Core program isn't a true OC either. To each their own but OC'ing should only be done in the bios.

Multiplier alone is easier, but Ref Clock will give higher/better, more complete system OC results. Myself I always use the ref clock.

well i played around with the multiplyer atm got it stable from 3.2 up to 3.5, (probably not much for you guys but its a start for me) i did prime95 test for 13 mins cpu temp doesnt go over 53c(amd say 64 is top, so i guess im fine), i tried going 3.6 but after about 4-5 mins of prime95 i got a bsod so im assuming i need to up the voltage a bit, how do i go about that safely and not frying my cpu. what is safe increments to go up in.

You might want to start by reading and than saving this thread http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html
It will give you a lot of very useful info and a path to follow.

But before even going that far I would have to advise you that max safe CPU Socket temps should not exceed 55c under stress with prime95 and be able to pass 12-24 hrs to be considered stable.

You may need after market cooling to even run the setup you have right now depending on what room temp was during testing. Monitor temps with HWMonitor or maybe Everest.

And if you're having BSOD with prime95 that's probably a lack of Vcore which should be raised in small increments of a couple "bumps" than retested with prime95 till stabilized. With the stock cooler temps will be your "WALL".

To whoever said a new TIM got a 20c drop in temps. The cooler had to have been mounted wrong or incorrectly because going from the worst Tim to the best will never get a difference of that much unless the original mount was done incorrectly
