3800+x2 Not hitting 3GHz

Recommended Posts

I would like to tell all those people claiming they could hit 3GHz on air with a 3800+ ; i tried, following the dfi oc guid (i mean dyi), 1.7 volts will not hit 3GHz. Outa luck i guess. Temps were a bit hot at 35-36C load. Still i couldn't hit 3.

How many people have you seen claim 3GHz with a Socket 939 X2 3800+? I have only seen one that was proven at 3GHz.

 

The 65nm AM2 does seem to scale well and I have seen a number of lower end X2's hit 3G +..

no overclock is garented rare but in theory u can get a cpu that wont overclock 1 mhz and u can get a cpu that will do 3.0 and not go above 30c on stock cooling its all a roll of the dice ... some cpu's do better than others but still a gamble
