Win some, lose some. In the end it caused me to get my 2nd 960T that did unlock. The 4 core was a beast though....could run benches at 4.6GHz on air. Sigh...

I had 2 960T's..one unlocked to X6, both clocked high as heck. Believe it or not a fly killed my 4 core. Got sucked into a fan during a suicide run...got flung onto the mobo right above the socket and shorted 2 active resistors. Puff of smoke and cpu/mobo dead. :8

badtaylorx 980's are great clockers too. I sold one to someone here a couple years ago that would hit 4.6+ on an Asus mini ITX... i frgn LOVED that setup. Never should have sold it......

Currently running on a basic AIO, although load temps are in the mid 30s so happy that the thermals are under control at the moment.

I guess for me I am at the top of the leaderboard in terms of X6 and an RX470, there are others with a higher score with an X6 but with a much better graphics card. Looks like my setup with the RX470 is equivilent to a Ryzen 5 and some of the i5 and i7 processors so not bad for a fairly old CPU.

Will keep pushing though!

BE CAREFUL , the thubans don't tolerate voltage as well as the Denebs did - 1.5 v + can be lethal to them .
