CPU overvolt questions Tags: CPUs Core Phenom Overclocking Last response: April 20, 2012 5:29 AM in Overclocking Share bobusboy a b K Overclocking April 19, 2012 11:44:50 PM I currently have a Phenom II x6 1065t. Stock core is 2.9ghz with turbo to 3.4 (which never happened on it's own) I've used my mobo to OC it to 3.680 (253.84x14.5) and because I have a locked multiplier I'm wondering if over volting the cpu from stock 1.3v to 1.350/625 would help me push the OC higher. I completed 9 hours 52 minutes of Prime 95 on blend (close enough to 10 hours) with no errors or warnings with the current OC More about : cpu overvolt questions Mu33rto April 20, 2012 12:01:14 AM Try IntelBurnTest to really push your system. What is the current temp of the system? If its low enough you can crank up the volt. Make sure its not on the point where it might overheat before trying to push more out of it. m 0 l bobusboy a b K Overclocking April 20, 2012 12:10:24 AM Idle's at 30-35*c and prime pushed it to 61*c but no higher. I'll give intel burn test a shot. m 0 l Related resources Questions Overclocking , Overvolting & CPU Temps ! - Forum Enough watts left to overvolt CPU? - Forum CPU VTT, PLL Overvolt, CLL 75 - Forum Gigabyte P35-DS3L fsb overvolt question - Forum CPU cooling, questions about thermal paste - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Lots of people push it to 70-75*C. Why is intel burn worse than prime 95? (everyone says use prime so that what I used) Right now i'm using an OEM cooler, but I"m debating a H100 or a high end air cooler (which I'll pick up tomorrow with my new PSU) m 0 l bobusboy a b K Overclocking April 20, 2012 5:25:09 AM It's just a big jump going from 1.3625 to 1.4875 lol, that is all. (healthy skepticism of potential trolls because it was so far off from what I was at) I need better cooling before I push it further; hence today/tomorrow depending on your time zone. Thank you for the stats. PS: Where did you find out what the threshold for damage is for the phenom IIs ? I've never heard that number before. m 0 l bobusboy a b K Overclocking April 20, 2012 5:28:55 AM Best answer selected by bobusboy. m 0 l bobusboy a b K Overclocking April 20, 2012 5:29:17 AM Expect a PM from me when I get my new cooler.
