I'm not too familiar what C2 and C3 is. How can I find out?Originally Posted by Canis-X;13085377
Do you have the C2 (140W) or C3 (125W) stepping version of the proc (C3's tend to OC better with less voltage)? The max temp is the same regardless, 62C (not the previously mentioned 75C), but the recommended max you should work with is still the 55C max temp threshold.
I would recommend that you use ASUS's PC Probe II app to read the temps as it is pulling the information through your BIOS rather than HW Monitor software calc. I've heard from some people that it is not very accurate.
EDIT: Sorry Sandman, you ninja'd me.
I have the C3 version, how much do you think i could overclock my cpu?Originally Posted by Canis-X;13086674
By the model number (OPN PIB) - found either on-top of the CPU chip, or on the box that came with it:
C3: HDX955FBGMBOX -OR- HDZ955FBGMBOX
