Even though this thread was initially to show off my awesome super duper coolio AMD 960T, some of you guys have equally awesome Zosma CPUs.

To be a member, reply with the following:

rdr09 graciously took over the duty of creating the member list



User Name:
CPU:
24/7 OC:
Max OC:
Unlockable:


If your chip is not PRIME stable as an X6, do not put X6 even if it boots and is Windows stable. If it is only stable as an X5, put X5. If you don't know, just put X4.

Here's mine:

User Name: The Pook
CPU: AMD X4 960T Zosma
24/7 OC: X6 3100Mhz @ 1.17v
Max OC: X4 4431Mhz @ 1.52v
Unlockable: X6

here is my best so far. Not remotely stable, but considering I'm on air ...

I just had to change an option in the BIOS from "disabled" to "enabled" ... but I'll take the congratulations.

Lemme know how your chip goes with unlocking. It'd be nice to have a bargain bin CPU with a high unlock rate. Everyone seems to be saying ~50% but I'm thinking it's a lot higher than that and it's just too new to know for sure.

And yeah, definitely gonna OC the whole thing once I figure out it's stable at 100% stock and just two cores enabled.

Unfortunately for me, when I had my 960T it wouldnt even unlock to a 5-core stably... Yeah I always seem to have bad luck, but when I OC'd it to 4.1ghz and 2800mhz it really showed great performance, and for that, I really loved that chip... Until I sold it

I like to play with a lot of chips, so i gotta trade and sell to experience everything!

I got a 955 and a A70.
960T was too expensive or hard to find here for local shopping.
So far REALLY pleased.

Brink 32fps Low 1440x900 Shadows Disabled (Dual Core Athlon II OCed 3.7Ghz)
52fps High 1440x900 Shadows Medium now

Dirt 3: 29fps High
53fps Now

A70 2000rpm:
Idle: 32C
Gaming: 41
Prime95: 45C

Not too loud. I can use a fan controller lower the speed it runs at 36C idle but quiet.

Still have to throw BF3 and Witcher 2 at it.

Same boat. I upgraded from a Q6600 and it was just a lateral upgrade for me considering all I do is web browse and play Skyrim (only coded for 2 threads). I just wanted something new to OC and play with haha.

I'll probably run 4 cores for 24/7 use anyway. Hopefully I can come close to your OCs
biggrin.gif
Not much I do needs six cores. Just nice to know I have the option to. I'm impatiently waiting for GTA 5 so maybe I'll have a use for the extra two cores there ...

I was having problems with stuttering with my M4 SSD so I had to reinstall Windows. Microstutter went away but now no matter what version I use, CPU-Z won't open. I reinstalled a second time and it won't open on this second install either.

It's not a stability problem, because Prime95 works fine as does Skyrim. Who knows.

That being said, I locked the second two cores back up and seeing what I can get with just four. Stress testing at 3.7Ghz and so far so good at 1.3v. It's about the most this stock cooler can take. I'll slap my Gemini S heatsink on either tonight or tomorrow and try to see if I can't get low/mid 4Ghz range.

4300 won't POST even with 1.55v so I think I'm going to have to be happy with 4200. Going to drop the multi and crank the FSB. That and try to fine tune my NB clock.

Goal is to hit low 15s.

I found when I had the NB at 2800mhz and my 960T at 4.1 it did the best in benches... Then again I couldnt keep it stable at 4.2 for very long ( i really got a poop chip). I say oc that NB a little more!

Yeah, it seems to help a good bit. I keep putting off installing a real heatsink even though I have one because I don't wanna take my computer apart again.

Until I stop being lazy I gotta back off the CPU for a bit.

Still playing with my motherboard/RAM/NB. Got 8-9-8-20 with a bump in voltage and 240FSB seems stable.

They're a great buy. Even if you get a bad OCer, I haven't seen many that can't do 3.9Ghz+

congrats!

the mugen will be coming tomorrow to replace the 212 and hopefully it will do a better job cooling this cpu. looking at the back of my case/mobo - i might get away from taking it out of the case.

we should start a club.

I'd be up for a 960T club.
