Phenom II X2 550 Overclock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
It's, unfortunately, only a C2 stepping. However, I have a couple questions to ask regarding this overclock.

I have it at 3.8GHz @ 1.5v and doesn't pass 44*C on the cooler I have. The Intel Burn Test, showed that it was operating at roughly 19 GFLOPS. Is this the normal area?

It passed the 6 tests out of the 10, had to stop early because I had to leave a friends house.

I ran it with both threads, obviously, and 2GB of ram, couldn't go any higher since I am using XP on that machine. It was stable with 5 passes. Does this show that the core overclock is stable or are there other programs that would stress it harder to further prove the overclock stability. I'll post a screenie tomorrow.

Anywhere more than 5 loops is almost guaranteed stable. Nice OC btw. And 19gflops is spot on for your clocks.

A little hint as far as voltage goes. If your board supports core unlocking, you might (obviously) want to unlock cores but even if your cores don't unlock, if there is an option for Firmware, setting it to Hybrid will make you stable at a lower voltage.

Tried. Unstable at stock frequencies regardless of voltage. >.< Oh well. I was looking for a dual core to be honest. I told myself that if it unlocked, it was just a bonus. The mobo only supports a stock TDP processor of 95W anyway so a triple core was the best I could get anyhow.

hmmm im getting about 25 Gflops at 3.9ghz and 1.4V, for some reason at 3.65 at 1.36V I was only getting 18.5 ish and was using the 14.5x multiplier. Not sure why the huge jump in flops occurred as soon as I bumped up the multiplier but I'd say fool around with it some more
