Stable overclock/4 cores/and plenty for any game with right GPUs
9 May 2011
Summary: Using an M2N32-SLI and a Corsair H50 with twin 80cfm fans in a push pull configuration I can run this all day at 3147MHz @ 45c and playing Crysis, a game which judging purely by core temperatures keeps a CPU running hot even when paused, at this conservative clock I have yet to exceed 58c. Settings 203, 15.5x, 1.3v.
Summary: I moved up to this processor from an AM2 1.8GHz. The speed difference is amazing. My motherboard manufacturer didn't list this as a working processor, so I had to do quite a bit of research to make sure, but wow, was it worth it! If you're thinking about upgrading to this processor, good luck. I was only able to find 1 (here). I called a dozen warehouses and internet suppliers. No one could get this thing.
Summary: I installed this into a Foxconn Destroyer motherboard - That crazy motherboard has everything in it including the kitchen sink. I run it stable at 3.2 gig all day long and do allot of multitasking as well. I have run it higher to 3.9 gig but it was rebooting randomly. I am also running in SLI two Nvidia 9600 cards with 768 DDR2 memory; hey it play crysis at 1600x1200 at 45fps and above topped at 67fps.
Summary: Pros: I overclocked this bad boy to 3.0 Ghz, then it laughed at me!!! It said, "Is that all you got"? Plenty of room for more OC!!!! I can't wait to see what the Matrox RT.X2 can do for me. Cons: Doesn't do dishes or laundry. Other Thoughts: I edit with Adobe CS4 Prod Premium. MPEG-2 transcode took about 15 min for 1 hour of video!!! Yeh, crazy fast!!! AND THAT WAS WHILE I WAS SURFING!!!! used to take 2.5 hrs.
Summary: the overall performance is great the stock clock speed is 2.6Ghz. I have it clocked at 2.8Ghz stable as a rock. As for heat i am using an asus silent square evo with AS5 thermal compond and idle temps are about 46C and under heavy load (Crysis on ultra high) temps never go above 56C. I have just recieved my new cooler that i am about to test which is a Coolermaster V10 which is not only a great air cooler but also has a built in thermoelectric cooler!!!.
