Is my 940BE just crap, or am I OCing wrong? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
My 955 C2 only hits 3.6, i can throw more voltage and barely bump the multi, and i have stability issues, some chips just get to a point and dont want to go any farther.

The VRMs being traditional D-paks should get very hot with an OC'ed 125W C2 rev - possibly enough to get dangerously hot. I never recommend any 4+1 phase on OC'ed 125W if without MOSFET heatsinks.

Yeah, what I was thinking. I'm sticking at this 3.5GHz clock as I like it. Give me alot of increase over the stock 3GHz.
