  1. Efficiency drops the hotter the chip gets, so you ether up the volts to make up for it at a given speed or find a away to get rid of more of the heat.

    At low speed you can get away with higher temps & still be stable because chip does not need to be as Efficient so can afford to waste some as heat.


    I was doing a high Mhz Orthos run at low Vcore & failed with in 30min temps only peaked at 48c, i got the desk 12" fan out & aimed it at cooling towers & got peak temps down to 42 & passed Orthos at same settings.

  2. that 185 would be ideal because of the higher multiplier that's about all, a 165 can overclock just as good but at lower memory dividers, so your advantage would be running your memory 1:1 with that 185 :)


    my opty does 3.1Ghz on water at the 150 divider.


    The Muilti is the only reason why bought it over a cheaper version.:)


    Actually i ordered a fx60 so that i could run my mem tight as could be but was to late & had to change my order

  3. I agree! People who have a 939 system who don't have a dualcore cpu should get one now while they can & clock stable as much as they can until AM3 gets here as im not moving until that at the earliest.


    The Optys are still priced ok here in the UK, infact the price has dropped.


    Got my Opty185 yesterday for £207 when just a month before from the same place it was £270.


    And as you can see from my sig its a cracker.

  4. will give it a shot tomorrow

    by way

    happy new year:)

    Those setting was for overclocking but it seemed to have a side effect of stopping the disk freeze.

    I spent good part of half a day trying to find the best combo for my cpu by overclocking to 2.8 at low volts which i know will fail prime but when messing with them settings i went from under 5 mins stable to 20 mins to 50mins at same vcore but the core that failed would change depending on the settings.


    Now the bad news i was at 2.952Ghz not prime stable for the 4 days but just just now i dropped down to 2.855Ghz prime stable but now the errors are back.

    So i will be going back to 2.952Ghz to see if it stops the errors again until my Opty gets here.
