Scotteq a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking May 13, 2008 9:53:56 PM Maybe I'm being picky - But if you can't keep the comp running for more than 10 minutes... <shrug> Congrats on booting (at least once) at 3, tho. That's something, at least.

Just thought I should show you. Congrats. But, we live in the real world, not in the benching world or the banner world. I would work to find a stable point, not a bragging point. sailer May 13, 2008 10:38:42 PM I agree with Scotteq. Its good to get a high speed, but if it doesn't last, then it doesn't mean all that much. 4745454b a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking May 13, 2008 10:52:21 PM Have you tried ~2.8GHz? I think this does matter, as there are some around here to claim K10 can't hit that 3GHz. If its not 100% stable at 3.0GHz, perhaps 2.8 or 2.9 will be better. angry_ducky May 13, 2008 11:01:14 PM Nice. blackpanther26 May 14, 2008 1:47:38 AM 2.8GHz is stable 2.9GHz sort of I think I can get this stable at 3GHz but I don't want to kill it. Murissokah May 14, 2008 2:29:05 AM I'm thinking you must be REALLY needing that 200mhz. If it is stable at 2.8, why push your luck at 3.0? a 6pack in May 14, 2008 3:08:04 PM what kind of cooling you got going on? i had a 9600 BE, and it failed on me, i just did a BIOS update. maybe it will be better now.. so i will try it again this weekend. blackpanther26 May 15, 2008 12:34:22 AM right now I have the Swiftech H20 220 compact a 6pack in May 15, 2008 4:47:02 AM nice, what kind of case ya got that on.. i wonder if it will fit my antec 900 blackpanther26 May 16, 2008 11:55:01 PM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811144010 my case.
