Can I get to 4.0GHz on a 965 BE? - Page 4

post #31 of 36
I do recommend being careful, it is an unheatsinked 4+1 and the chokes are rather small as well which probably means less amperage capacity (apparently inductor quality has a lot to do with overall VRM quality & safety according to another VRM expert on this site)

Ambients are around 30-32c. However it is wintertime in New York, and wintertimes are pretty damn cold over here. I expect my temps to rise quite a bit over the summer.

AMD chips tend to like the cooler side of things... Although the max is not 60C, they are more stable below those temps.
Anyway, the 965 Should be easy to overclock. Start with the multiplier. Its simple, easy to restore if you ever need to, and just an easy start for someone not knowing much about tickleing the bios.

Listen to this guy. He knows what he is talking about.

Fazio could you please explain this northbridge OCing being more beneficial or point me in the right direction?

The NB is where things can get quite confusing for people. The NB is between the CPU and the IMC, and the IMC is the Integrated Memory Controller. So you can see that having this go faster will make the memory faster. So obviously the NB speed can be very beneficial to increase. The memory access times and read/writes often go down quite a bit when the NB is OC'd. In fact, this is part of why the memory speeds of the PhII's are so much faster than the original phenoms (you can see this HERE). From tests and reviews that I have seen, you can expect that most AM3 chips will hit 2.4-2.8GHz on the NB, although that will likely require some additional CPU/NB voltage and/or cooling to ensure stability. Read through THIS thread if you have more questions about NB and NB/CPU voltage and settings, it is one of the better sources I have found for good info on that topic.

Thanks for the info, that's helped me out a lot. I'm all about OCing the NB a little bit after reading for an hour or two, however I need to understand my boot issue to ensure I am able to test effectively for stability. Please see my thread here; I am starving for knowledge.
