Re: AMD 9850 X4 Overclocking!
The mobo temp sensor shows my proc. at 52'C in bios.
Core temp reads 33'C Idle and 51'C w/ 2 instances of orthos 100% load on 4 cores.
The Zalman 9700U is extremely good a keeping this thing cooled off.
I've pretty much settled on 3.0Ghz with 1.275 Vcore it's pretty much as fast as my 6400+ and it's got 2 additional core for multi-threaded goodness.
