    its not too bad, 830mhz overclock for free

    its the pwmic that churns out the heat, even with a fan over it and good case coolling.

    I'd say it is about right too. Mine is 50mhz shy of FX60 speed at 1.425v. Core 1 goes a lot higher at that voltage, but Core 0 craps out without more volts.

    Yes you get a few people with uber chips hitting 2.7Ghz at lower voltage. 2.8Ghz on air with better cooler (I am at stock) and higher voltge. There are 165 hitting the big 3Ghz. But those aren't averages (some people even buy several chip keeping the best, selling off the rest to get uber clocks). You'll rarely read about the guy who can only get 2.45Ghz there is not much to brag about there compared to the average.

    2.3 Ghz at 1.35v (CPU-Z reads 1.383v) load temp 41C

    2.5 Ghz at 1.55v load temp 52C - too many volts and too hot for liking, I've kept the stock volts setting, the PC is alot quieter

    2.45Ghz at 1.325V (stock) - load at 32C (275X9)
    2.7Ghz at 1.45V - load at 36C (300X9)

    with twin cores and BOTH at that speed. How much heat does that puppy throw out?

    That's got my name all over it . I'd love to be running IL-2 on one core and then Alt Tab into Windows in a sensible time frame to start team speak etc

    with good air cooling, you are looking at around mid 40's if the chip doesnt need too much voltage (over say 1.4v), after that it can get silly, even with good airflow and a good heatsink.

    on water, i get 38c tops now. the only problem is the amount of heat the pwmic area chucks out, so that needs to be blown somewhere, so good case flow is a must.

    itll be individual for each chip, and highly dependant on how high it will go with minimal voltage...luck of the draw really

    I can keep my load temp at 52C max now i have a new case (p180) but if i bump up the voltage to 1.475 to try for more speed it gets mental hot thats with a freezer pro. Hopefully my new watercooling will fix that though.

    On a side note, the stock cooler works very nicely. It won't compete with the big boys, but it perform admirably well.

    165 still better bang for buck, although 170 tend to go higher. I don't regret going 165 instead of 170 TBH

    The price difference is larger than the full cost of my last CPU (Barton 2500+)
