  1. Yeah Phenom IIs are o.k at that voltage. Don't know what the max safe voltage is for the Phenom Ii but you can find out if you google it.
  2. it was running stable but as soon as i ran prime 95 after about 1 min it crashed :( whats the best settings to hit 3.8 ghz guys??
  3. why is mine running at 60 degrees on idle, I have a zalman 9000 fan on this cpu at stock voltage and stock speeds

    re-install your heatsink, you probably messed that up, though start your own thread next time don't hijack someone else's

    jo_795 can't really help you though, i have a Phenom II X4 810 and i only go to 3.2GHz , it's enough for games if need be (though stock is plenty as well)
