Re: AMD X6 OC - Please post your results
Hey guys got my AMD Phenom II X6 1090T today with a very cheap Gigabyte GA880GM-UD2H. I have done limited overclocking as i don't want to push my 600w PSU but wow i am blown away by these processors.
I had a QX9650 @ 4.33GHz w/ 1.55 till it died along with the P5N-D due to my power supply which it too died. But damn this CPU is so powerful i have left Turbo core on and using the default 3.2GHz but when turbo kicks in goes to 4.2GHz and the best thing is i have NOT even touched the voltage!! So 3 cores run at 4.2GHz and the other 3 downclock, games play amazingly.
I also have HT running at 2.6GHz each way for a total of 5.2GHz rather then the default 4GHz. Have not benched many games but in Dawn of war 2 i got 62fps on my QX9650 @ 4.33GHz and the Phenom II X6 @ 4.2GHz scores 66fps.
Best £215 i have spent and thats for the CPU, motherboard and 4GB PC12800 Ram.
Turbo core is excellent! i can have my system cool and quiet yet very high performance when needed. After all games use 2 threads mainly which is on CPU 1 and 2. I have ran prim 95 on 6 cores at 3.2GHz as turbo core does not kick in but yet windows is still very responsive as if i am not even running the program yet all cores are under 100% load.
When i had it first setup videos would be out of sync and pause intermittedly. So uninstalled the Audio drivers from Gigabytes site and used the ones from Guru 3D and completly cured it.
