Phenom II X4 955 BE overclocked to 3.8 Ghz at 1.3375 vcore paired with a Cooler master Hyper 212 plus cooler in push pull config
Asus M4N75TD Motherboard (SLI)
4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Corsair XMS 3 RAM
500GB SATA 3.0 HDD
1 LG DVD Combo drive
Asus GTX 560Ti Direct CUII graphics card overclocked to 880 core /1760 shader /4200 memory (same as twin frozr II design specs)
Cooler Master Elite 430 case with 3 120mm intakes and 2 120mm exhausts
Samsung B2230 22" monitor
Cooler Master GX 750 W PSU
and I plan to add the following components to my existing build
4GB additional 1600MHZ DDR3 memory
1TB Samsung SATA HDD
another GTX 560Ti for SLI
So I want to know if my PSU is capable of running these specs. I have a Cooler Master GX 750W PSU (bronze certified).
kinda funny - our builds are extremely similar and i just did my upgrade this week adding the hyper 212, 4gb of extra ram and the samsung 1TB drive. lol
I did my research on the PSU as well and order the Corsair 750W from newegg - similar to the cooler master. Im running Crossfire 5770s and it works great.
I have a question for you - I see you are overclocking your CPU. I havent done it before and I have the exact same one. Do you do it with software or in the MB Bios? Which settings do you have to change? Would appreciate any tips!
iam2thecrowe - ok, thanks. One more question. Considering that nvidia is releasing their upcoming cards based on 28nm or 22nm die shrink. Do you think that the power consumption of these cards would be lower than the current generation cards or what?
darcangelorr - I have overclocked my CPU through bios. I was able to reach 4 ghz on air by just using the multiplier but to be on a safer side I underclocked it again to 3.8 ghz at 1.3375 volts without changing my HT link or FSB. What's your settings?
havent permanently changed my settings yet - however without changing the voltage i was able to try setting the clock multiplier to x19 and achieve 3.8 and loaded into windows fine - but i think my stock voltage on Auto is 1.4. Does that sound right?
darcangelorr - can you please post this issue on the overclocking forum. I will be able to help you out if you do that as this is a graphics card forum. and one more thing try and reduce the voltage in the bios to 1.32 to 1.35. I sure that you will be able to attain 3.8 ghz OC on that voltage.
iam2thecrowe - You haven't still answered my question yet. Considering that nvidia is releasing their upcoming cards based on 28nm or 22nm die shrink. Do you think that the power consumption of these cards would be lower than the current generation cards or what?
