AMD 9850 X4 Overclocking!
Ok yesterday on the 13th, I purchased a brand spanking new 9850 X4 as a drop in replacement for the m2n32-sli Deluxe and a Zalman 9700 cooler.
After several bios updates as the newest bios 2001 and 1903 both seemed buggy on the memory side of the equation.
I finally settled on bios 1802 which works great.
After a little tinkering I'm typing this at 200X15= 3.0Ghz.....without much fuss or muss. Running dual instances of orthos to test stability.
I've booted vista as high as 3.2 ghz on stock volts....now I'm just working towards overall system stability.
All this without touching the vcore.
I'm happy with the results especially for a drop in replacement in my 590SLi mobo.
Please post comments/question and or Feedback
