    The Official Phenom II Overclocking Thread (Please Post Your OC's)

    Alright, so here's the thread that will have the overclocks of all Phenom II's by who has the highest overclock, and later on maybe by the 5 letter stepping at the beginning if we get lots of different ones like we did with rev F3 X2's.

    To be included in the ranking, you need to post the following information.
    CPU Model Used
    CPU Full Stepping
    CPU Frequency
    CPU Vcore
    NB Frequency
    HT Link Frequency
    Memory Frequency
    Memory Configuration (2x1gb, 2x2gb, etc)
    Memory Ganged/Unganged
    Mainboard Model
    Cooling Type
    Windows Version and x86 or x64

    You will also need screenshots of the following.
    Prime Stable 2 hours minimum for the list of stable clocks or OCCT 1 hour high priority, none for list of suicides.
    CPU-Z main screen and memory screen

    Not necessary but still appreciated
    CPU-Z Validation

    Get Overclocking Guys.

    Prime Stable:

    With what the power set ups are like on alot of the mother boards prime for 8 hours mite kill the mother board . Some people have lost there mother
    board to long prime runs already so they may not wanted to do that just a thought .

    according to some, certoun heavy games results in crashes while prime seemed stable.
    for me, 3 hours of gaming and a 30minute prime run is a stability test.
    prime95 says torture test, and thats what it is, a torture. personaly, i will never run it 8 hours.
    also its unknown how long the phenom survives on high oc's.
    when i get my phenom, i will not put more on it then 1.45 volt. i will have to see how much mhz that will be.

    I guess doing prime for 2 hours would catch most errors, maybe people could switch it to a custom test that switches fft length after every 10 minutes instead of 15 so they still get all the tests in the 2 hours. What do you guys think about that?

    I knew I shoulda snapped a SS when I killed prime after 10hrs

    gonna try for higher on a later date anyways...

    2h prime95 is plenty IMO. 4 times longer priming doesn't mean 4 times the stability Besides, it's to everyone's interest to have as many OC's as possible, and I'm pretty sure alot of people are WAY too impatient for 8 hours.

    some times prime will not error until later in the run 2 hrs IMHO is no where near a stable rig. Unless you have it in a oven at 200 degrees

    If people want to do longer than 2 hours, that's their choice. We can just make the minimum stability test to be 2 hours of it. And more overclocks is always better.

    With my 9950 when i primed for an hour , i said that's it!, no more torture we are good. And i was good, never ever crashed with that setting no matter what i did. Although When i was stable for 30 minutes neither did that o.c ever crashed, games,encoding nothing.I just think prime is too much....

    yea thats fine in the last thread there wasn't even a requirement but for every result someone submitted it would say how long they primed or say nothing at all if they didn't do it. maybe we can do something similar?

    My self i use a 1-2 hour prime run to test my over clocks with and that has work good for me also . Just did not want to see guys get stuck in a long prime run and have them maybe break rigs .

    I'd rather not do suicide shots because that doesn't really show the potential of the chips in my opinion. I mean really, how hard is it to run prime? If you guys want I'll do lists with and without stability, but I don't see the use of using suicide shots when this is supposed to be a resource for people to look for what steppings are the best assuming we get a lot of different steppings.

    Also, we've had how many posts and not a single overclock yet for me to document.

    Edit: Leoy beat me to saying do two separate lists.

    no prime for me, theres no way I would ever need my rig to run 100% for hours at a time. I overclock for fun, benching and for my games and thats it. Im not going to torture for no reason. highest oc and settings and 24/7 oc and settings ahould be sufficient. An easier test should be maybe 3dm06/ vantage or something for proof the system runs on a decent load?

    its not like if they aren't running prime for 2 hours its a suicide. i myself have only ran prime for 2 hours once because i was watching a movie. typically when i have problems with things not being stable prime will pick it up within 10 minutes. its fine if people run prime for 2 hours just some like me don't feel like doing that all the time.

    Just a suggestion.... Instead of 2 hours Prime why not use a good 10 pass Linpack (IntelBurnTest) run to show stability.

    It pushes harder and has shown (to me atleast) to be just as reliable but only takes about 20 minutes to run (less chance of damaging the PWM section of your board).

    The use of this thread should be about best stability, in search of best stepping, cause the stepping is indeed useless in max suicide shots.
    But a small list with validation only should be nice.

    Also prime isn't the program everyone using so we should find somethimg simplier perhaps.

    And prime can and will give u errors in within 30 -1 hour if not stable.

    You guys are fresh on the Boat aint ya? We at one point would not consider a Overclock Valid unless a Full 8HR Prime 95 Run was done immediately Followed by 3DMARK 05 -03 then you could post your overclock achievement

    you cannot oc a chip and not test it with 100% load.
    so i agree with prime, it must be used to proof stability.

    when i test for oc walls, i start prime and slowly turn up the htt bus untill it starts to error. then i play with voltages and other things.

    I'm fine as long as we can agree on something. I originally posted the 8 hours prime because that's what it was like last year and the year before(meaning 07 and 06). I've never managed to run the intel burn test on my 9600, but it doesn't crash even when I have it run wcg for days on end. I'm also fine with OCCT, last time I ran that program was when it was only for single cores.

    as maintainer of the list you can demand more proof of stability and only add to the list like you see fit.

    well the reason why i say we shouldn't have a prime requirement is because many people are too lazy. if you looked at the old thread in all of the info listed in the spreadsheet one column would be for how long it was primed. it was blank if no one primed it and if they did it would be listed. if people see that it is completely blank then they would know that theres a possibility that its not stable. i think 2 hours is fine tho like i said prime usually picks up errors for me pretty fast if its not stable.

    It's simple guys: If you want to list stable overclocks, then change title to read: The Phenom II Stable Overclocking Thread or something similar. If it's just overclocking then everything goes.
