Writing On My 1090t Heat Spreader??? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Probably later since it could be more refined and any issues fixed.

Although it was often said that the first i7's overclocked best so who knows.

Its pretty much luck of the draw.

The only way to find out is to ask someone with a 4ghz OC and ask them what batch theres is from. That's how we find golden batches

so is it better like this (below)
My Chip.
(1101)
year - 2011
week - 01

OR like this (below)
Made up chip.
(1148)
year - 2011
week - 48

Thanks in advance anyone who can help

The time itself isn't important to the overclocking performance of a chip, however cerain batches may outperform others, and you will be able to use the dates and stepping to get the batch you're after.

In short, a golden chip can come from any time of the year, aslong as you're on the latest stepping.

Uhh, it's most likely left up to overall, avg. results of people who report on the steppings. Which aren't many. AMD have refined their processes since 939 days for sure, current day chips and there Golden factor are left up to the chip itself. I would go for a die closest cut to the center of the wafer, like i sad I thought was, the last digits of the serial number. I can't say FOR SURE that's true, but that was rumor back when I first got my 955 and 965...

EDIT: I thought a "golden chip" was one that could OC on less voltage then normal, or run stock severely under-volted. Like a 965 C3 at 3.4ghz, 1.15vcore... lol, that would be sick. 38C max load temps on water, LOL sweet!

I think revision and stepping has the biggest impact on how well chips perform but today's Phenom II x6 all seem to be of the same revision and I haven't seen a database of stepping info with overclocks for them. Overclockers.com used to have a pretty thorough database...

4 GHz with a 1090T isn't unusual. You'd have a harder time finding one that won't OC that high than one that will. The only real difference will be if it takes 1.4v or 1.5v, etc.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. The only example I have is my 965 and old 955, both were CACAC AC, but one was C2, and mine is C3, only difference. Ive had this same chip forever tho, so I haven't messed with a lot of PhIIs, but the few I have, all seem to be CACAC AC. Chances are, the 1090ts are all same stepping, but golden factor and how well the chip is overall is just luck.

Yeah, golden chip factor here would be 4ghz at stock voltage or less.

EDIT: Thanks for rep, I can almost sell now, w00t
