what should i expect from a 955 c3 on watercooling?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
hi guys, i currently have a 1st gen phenom, 9550, now i ordered a 955 with C3 stepping, i have liquid cooling, and a good setup, got a good pump and its i think 1/2" tubing, all that stuff, but any how to the matter

what is the highest oc i should see that is stable? like i said, i have water cooling so heat is not a issue,

i have seen guys hitting 4.3 average with air???

but i am just curious, thanks!

U can expect about 4. That's the average. Plus I haven't seen anyone get to 4.3 and stable on air. That's actually pretty hard to get w/c unless u have a great chip

I have an H50 and I can get 4.0Ghz @1.450v stable, problem is the H50 isn't THAT good and I hit upwards of 62c under full load. So you should have no problem getting probably 4.2Ghz if temp is an issue I'd imagine.

At this point, I'd worry more about the mobo crapping out than the chip...

Thats not the the problem..

Its an MSI with AMD. Recipe for disaster according to many people here.

@OP, Should be able to hit 4GHz minimum and maybe 4.2-4.3 24/7.

Yup, well, back in its day, CPU's didn't have robust VRM requirements like they do now. Good luck .
