How much can i expect to overclock with max CPU TDP 95watt
Hey I just got a BIOSTAR A770E with a Phenom X3 8450e. I originally got the cpu and this other mobo combo for $50.(black friday deal). I sold that mobo for 43 and got this one open box for 44. I didn't think the 95 max watt would be a problem cause cpu is only 65 and to me seems like alot of head room to oc. After using the program to calc how many watts i notice the cpu watts increase alot when oc. my question is, how much you think i can oc this cpu with this mobo? I got ddr2 1066 and a aftermarket heatsink. Should I sell this motherboard lol? Also if I get a cpu thats 95watts would the mean i cant oc it at all? thxs
edit after reading about TDP it seems like that's not the max power the cpu can take , but the max power of heat it generates , so if I have a good heat sink i should be able to go past the 95 watts?
More aboutexpect overclock 95watt
No one knows what happens if you go past the 95 watt limit lol?
ok thanks for the info, man I should of spent the extra $7 to get the TA785GE. I thought only diff was that the ta had a integrated video card, o well
lol well i guess ill stick with what I have for now , waited 3 weeks to get everything and don't feel like waiting more.
