i got my Phenom II X4 955 to over 4.0 GHz on air, i think i can get more when i get a better cooler

Which voltages did you have to change (nb, cpu ppl...)

nice, going for max overclock or stability?

give it a run of linpax (linx) to test its stability. if you want it stable it should pass 20 runs

i doubt it passed Prime95 at 4 ghz. I mean I can set my processor to 4.2ghz, just won't pass .2 seconds on Prime95 without a reboot.

It passed Prime 95 and memtest at 4.012 GHz, as you can see from the SS its at 1.36 volts, and Northbridge is at +0.25v
I think there is more room too with a better cooler

well if you look f**l at the SS you will see authenmticated CPU-Z of 4.0GHZ FFS use your eyes!

You got it to 4ghz or it passed Prime95 at 4ghz?? Big difference.

Tom's test indicate that anything over 3.8 is a waste of power because the performance increase is negligable.


It was a waste for them because they had to raise the voltages a lot to get the extra 200MHz. If you can get to 4 GHz without much extra voltage it will be worth it.

why do theese threads always turn into witch hunts?

oh and try Linpac (linx) its more of a demanding stress test than prime95 and it only takes like 5mins. mine was passing prime but when i ran linx i had to up the voltage a bit more to make it 100% stable.

linx is the ned "benchmark" for stability. prime 95 is good for determening maximum likely temps though

+1 for Linpack. DL OCCT and see Linpack run. I run both P95 and Linpack for 6+hrs each.

Cheers to the OP for a good overclock! Look forward to the Prime95 screens. Good luck!

I don't know if you guys are just giving the guy a hard time, are jealous, or are just a couple of jacka$$es, but at the very least you could give the OP some credit...
Let the flames begin!

Jealous? Are you serious? Whats to be jealous about? I changed 3 settings in the bios and i was at 4ghz. :lol: 


Oh, I see! So rather than give the OP some props for achieving the same OC as you, you'd rather give him the business and $hit on his post.

Hitting 4GHz on air and w/o LN2 with an X4 955 is a greater accomplishment than hitting 4GHz on a D0 stepping i7 920. And, not for nothing, but I changed one setting on in the BIOS of my ASRock X58 Extreme and got my D0 i7 920 to 4GHz too, so...go $hit in your hat and pull it over your ears!

Hitting 4Ghz is good, but having a stable overclock @ 4Ghz is another story. As you can see, plenty of people here could do that but the point is, can he do it while keeping his system stable?

Okay this is getting pathetic. YOU CAN OVERCLOCK MOST PHENOM II PROCESSORS ABOVE 4.0 GHZ and GET IT TO DISPLAY ON CPUID.. The only issue is that they won't be stable at all.

What is stable? it means whenever you run under a full 100% CPU load, on all cores that it will continue to run at that for a WHILE without either A) Crashing due to voltage settings being incorrect or B) Burning your mobo or cpu because you hit 75c+....

Like you said Chunkymonster, 4.0 ghz on a Phenom II quad core on air is a feat which is why we're asking for proof. Obviously he doesn't have proof.... In fact he was photoshopping.

Note how he was using 1.36v on one CPU-Z (middle), then on the second (bottom left one) it says 1.38v.
Wonder why if his setup was stable there was a difference of .02v...

This would be a correct benchmark recording. Notice how nothing variates, all the voltages/clocks/multipliers are the same.

We are on the same page. I too agree that proof is required. If he was/is photo-shopping then the OP deserves to water-boarded and then into stock and chains and put on public display for all the kiddies to throw rotten tomatoes at. However, asking for proof is par for the course but giving the OP $hit for no good reason (as some posters did) is not.

Obviously the OP is a fool who is probably overclocking his first setup, then having the audacity to pretend to be a "pro" overclocker. Any experience overclocker will give PROOF in the form of stability tests before bragging about his overclock.

Also no one gave him the business for no reason. Everyone criticized him for either A) Not knowing crap (CPUID isnt Prime95) or B) Talking nonsense when he had no proof.

If we lived in a world where people believe what others say (without proof), we well wouldnt be anywhere would we? Just look at what the scientific method has done for us, massive amounts of technological feats done in just a few hundred years compared to what we did for thousands not using the scientific method.

On second thought there is that imaginary crap which millions of people believe in... :o  I said it.

well well well, what the apps are reporting is incorrect CPU-z always reports wrong, and I would NOT have done this overclock without doing an 8 hour run on prime, I have overclocked a few set ups, if you are unhappy then go elsewhere, the fact is this 4GHz on AIR and prime stable, want and 8 hour video on it, nah you are not worth proving too

Really? Thats why you didn't even know that Prime95 wasn't CPU-Z? Seriously dude you dont have to prove anything to anyone, but whenever you go posting on a forum saying you hit 4ghz on air, it raises eyebrows. Prove it, or just dont post about your overclock.


Psh if only I could enter overclocking competitions without proof..

For the OP, you still have the guts to reply when you can't even prove the stability of what you've done. Where's the proof then? Post it here so that everyone would shut their mouths off. But apparently, even if you decided to post it right now, no one would believe it. Why? Either it took you so many days to run stress test in a supposedly 4Ghz CPU (crap) or you got poor image editing skills (another crap also).

the reason why nis because if I do the prime test which has been done people will always find a way to be arrogant as you so easily managed to do 9be arrogant) so there is no need to prove it any more, I still got it at 4GHz and nothing you say or do will change that, arrogant or in despair must be one for you

Isn't stable....in the imagen you can see that the load in the first core is 1%, and 0% in the other 3, yes you have the 4GHz but just for a few seconds.
