Re: AMD 9850 X4 Overclocking!
Ok, It seems the Phenom cannot run my ballistix at the default EPP timings of 4-4-412-2t so I've had to loosen them up to 5-5-5-15-2T....which I'm not happy about.
But on the otherhand I've been able to get it 100% prime stable with less than stock vcore at the 3.0ghz indicated in my sig. Idle temps 33'C Full load on 4 cores 46'C
I'm very very pleased with my $260 phenom.....especially since I'm selling my 6400BE for $120 and my GeminII for $30.
Total cost of upgrade including the Zalman. $195
