View Full Version : MY media centre pc.
Had a quick dabble and without too much effort got it to 3.6ghz. Could probably go higher but thought whats the point and put it back to stock.
These 45nm chips certainly clock well....wonder what the next gen chips are going to be like?
Indeedy a 600mhz overclock without really trying (+0.1v on the few things i can tweak) on a micro atx mobo with few bios options for overclocking, which from experience usually means they don't overclock very well. On a "decent" board it might do 3.8+?
certainly seems AMD have caught up with Intel on the quality of their yealds.
I am just glad that they (both sides) aren't selling the chips at their max and allowing us to reap the benefits of a free speed boost if/when we need/want it.
I've seen the Phenom II x2 550 with 4 cores unlocked @ 4.1GHz :p
the AMd PIIs will also run up to 6Ghz with the right cooling.
Doesn't mean that every chip will do it.
As for unlocking cores even the Single core semprons will unlock extra core
one of many articles on it, giyf.
Cheers Mac some people just seem to want everything handed to them on a plate
Holy ****, everything unlocks another core, what is going on :O
I didn't know duals were quads, Intel quad's are two duo's right?
Intel Quads are two duos together. As for the unlocking, the athlon IIs dont unlock, but semprons single can, and tri-quad, and dual (phenom II) unlock.
