So yea, I was bored today, had a little time to try to OC this new cpu. I have very little experience with these am3 chips with respect to default voltage, ddr3 ram timings, etc. So I spent a little time researching some stuff and gave it a shot. Since my chip is the black edition, I just took baby steps with the multiplier to keep stress mainly on the cpu rather than fiddle with the Northbridge Voltages, Dram Voltages, Clock Speeds etc...  :ko:

After couple baby steps, increments in voltage, and a blue screen in stability testing, i finally got to 4GHZ with a core voltage of 1.475. Unfortunately i did not use a hardcore program like Prime95 or OCCT to test stability, didn't have time, so while i was outside i just left Aida64 System Stability Test Run while i went to do something. So at full cpu load for about 1 hour, the system held up and I then tried to run 3dmark06 (yea it's the only tool i had at the time). Interesting i got 16k on stock before, just a random test but overclocked i got 18K.. not too shabby at all...  :mellow:

RESULTS FROM STABLITY TEST - LOAD TEMP 65DEG CELCIUS (KINDA HIGH INNIT?!)



3DMARK06 SCORE - NO OC ON THE VIDEO CARD



For daily use I've decided to leave the cpu @ stock, I'm not too comfortable with the temps, so maybe i can adjust the cooling situation with more/better fans or maybe a better cpu cooler. For the mean time, I'm seriously enjoying the performance gain of this chip vs my old dual core chip..

Peace out, I'll be back later, may the gods shine upon my face with blessings of graphics card bounty! :happy0203:

For a hex core, at that speed under that kind of load, that's an excellent temp.

Even at that speed while gaming, the cpu wont be taxed nearly as much as those stress testers do.

Lol @ video card blessings. Only thing you need in there now is a gtx 570 and your in a gear for bf3.

65 degrees full load?  On a hexa-core CPU?

Great stuff mate.  You could more than run it 24/7 with that.
Of course, knowing you, a better CPU cooler might give that much greater peace of mind.

You could always invest in one of these:happy0203:

Silver Arrow performance in a MUCH smaller package.  Cheaper too.

This thread older than red stripe tube socks but let me update it...

Haven't upgraded for a significant time due to school and other stuff taking my finances. Last month end, I literally walked into manna falling from heaven. So I bit the bullet... here's the small update...

New CPU - i7 6700 (non K)
New Mobo - Biostar Z170T

Added another 250GB SSD from my now dead Zenbook, sigh!

Hopefully once time and finances permit, I'd upgrade my graphics card and my workspace..
