What kinda OC's are you guys getting on your X2's? I was just about to pick up a 4400+... Looking for at least 2.7GHz... I think I should be good :D

Or should I go for the 4600+? I kinda like the larger L2 cache on the 4400+...

Most people, from what I've read so far, seem to have one core or the other give out first. So while one core might be stable to say 2.6 the other may not make it past 2.4. It's a crap shoot as always.

But if you have good luck by all means try, just make sure it passes Prime before you call it truly stable. ;)

I haven't overclocked my 4200+ and I don't intend to. I'm a party pooper. :p

Ive herd they dont oc well compared to the other .90 cores unfortuantly.

Jakup why do you want to overclock it that bad?

I know for the moment it might seem slower but when the games fully use the duel core clock speed wont be an issue anymore

so if your looking for raw speed right now dont go duel core

riptide I didnt overclock too because my friend 4600+ died on him after 2 week

and only overclock it to 2.6

JakUp,

Got 2.8Ghz out of mine since the day I got it at 1.4v. Stable like a rock. Now for that PEG option, anything besided "Disabled" or "Normal" causes my system to be unstable.

thank you

Got mine running at 2.6GHz with 1.45v. Can do more but I like a silent PC:)

im gonna be OC'ing the X2 3800+ i just got jakup, ill let you know how it goes. dont get to install it til this weekend (delivered to home, im at school :mad: )

i saw one site get 2.7GHz out of it. i must say, i was impressed. :D

I'm running my 4400 X2 at 2.4ghz which is as high as I can go without bringing the voltage above 1.375. I get maybe a 1c temp increase and I'm only using a cheap thermaltake A1770 at 2700 rpms with some AS5. 32-52c is about what I get.

2.4 GHz? Meh, my Athlon 2500+ that I bought for $83 does more than that :p

Got 4200+ at 2.6Ghz at 1.46 Volts (~50-55'C full load with double prime), noticed once you get 1.5v and up, temperature increases considerably while running two prime instances can easly reach over 70'C even with my water cooling rig :eek: Also had 4400+ with same result.

Just stick with 4400+ cos it got total 2Mb cache and also it overclock to 4800+ level very easily. :D

I overclocked my 4400+ to 2.38GHz, that is at the edge of 4800+ and the CPU voltage is 1.34V. I am now happier at that level but I got no plan to overclock much higher cos I got slient CPU heatsink cooler. :)

I found this (http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=25775) from XtremeSystems (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59753) forum a guy Sucka overclocked this 4400+ to 3.4GHz. That how high 4400+ can reach. :D

2.4 GHz? Meh, my Athlon 2500+ that I bought for $83 does more than that :p

:P But as I said, that's only as high as it'll go without upping my voltage any more. I'll save that for when I'm ready for a new upgrade, but not when I still need to have this box for a year and a half yet hehe.

Hehe, just messin with ya. Surely 2.4GHz on a X2 is good deal faster than 2.4GHz on Athlon XP.

Dang right. *shifts his e-pen0s*
Gratz on your 2.45 out of a 2500+ btw. That's a nice OC.
I need to find a 333 socket A board (really cheap) that has some OC options so I can push the barton in "baconbox" heh.

2.57 is about my max stable. This is about average or a little more than average oc for the 4400+. Some lucky people might get a good oc chip, and others a crappy one. It's all luck of the draw.

I would say you're pretty much guaranteed to reach 4800+ speeds.

Still a worthy investment.

I got an 4400+ first batch @ 2700MHz @ 1.47v aka 5400+ speeds. But mines watercooled idle @ 31C @ defualt speed and voltage it's 28C same temp as my board

got my X2 installed today ( woot :D ) and i got it up to 2.5GHz no sweat. runnin at about 1.4V. i could go higher, but the chip is idling at 40C now, so i dont know how much hotter i want it to get. when i run dual cpu burn-in's i get up to the mid-50's.

these things have some amazing OC'ing ability, as they have the 90nm and SOI technology. this chip is awesome. in sisandra, my chip is out-benching 4800's. :)

X2 3800+ @ 1.4v = 2.45Ghz.

Running 2 instances on Prime95, one goes on forever, while the other crashes a few hours later.

No problems running BF2 all night and among other things.

The cores on the 4400's rock 4 sure. That's why I went with the Opteron 165. The core. Plus I like having the extra L2. ;)

Just OC'd my X2 4400 to 2.4ghz (10 % OC) Asus baby! lol

running Prime95 my cpu gets up to 48 degrees C, is that safe? or should i tone it down a bit, thx!
