List your most fun or favorite overclock


Recommended Posts

Yeah, tell us all about it. For me, it's got to be the Phenom II. I selected the OEM 970 (known as Zosma) but is basically a thuban with two cores disabled. 

I've never had a thrill quite like unlocking cores and having it run stable. Being in the earlier part of my overclocking hobby it really had a great effect and inspired me to keep pushing the limit. Thats why I say it's numba wan in my book. I got the latency down to 33.4 but will have to search for that screen shot. For now this will have to do. Amazingly enough, I could cool this thing @ 4GHz with a hyper 212. Another reason I love Phenom II chips is because they run pretty cool.

A64 3000+ (cus first), X4 960T (cus unlock), or i5 6400 and i7 6700 non-K (cus illegal)

 

GPUs are boring but I guess either 6800 GS (first dGPU + pencil vmod) or 9800 GTX (first successful physical vmod)

Did you get 4GHz out of your 960T? That was about the limit for me on the 970...

ez, my 960T was golden

 

bootable at 4.7 and there's a handful of scores of mine on HWBOT between 4.0 to 4.3

My old Opteron 165.  1.8GHz, little sucker did 3.0-3.1GHz stable depending on the motherboard, and could do nearly 3.4 on a suicide run.  Was my first ever 3GHz, and also it was dang near 100% overclock when running benches on it.

 

My original 001 chip off the wafer Athlon II x4 630 that unlocked L3 cache and clocked to 4.5GHz right out of the box would be my next one.  My first 4GHz chip ever.  It didn't last long though (VRM fire).  But dang if those full fledged Phenom II quads weren't all that bad at all overclocked highly....

 

My Athlon-XP 2600+ Barton was a neat one too.  Was 333 FSB (166 double pumped) x 11.5 multi.  Easily just bumped the FSB up to 400, and I had a chip faster than every Pentium 4 on the market, and every AthlonXP since the highest was a 3200+ (at 2.2GHz), and my 2600+ Barton was clocked at 2.3GHz.  It was like having a 3.4-3.5GHz P4 at the time.

 

My Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge chips honestly weren't anything much to talk about.  Same with my C2D / C2Q setups.  None of those setups were anything special that others couldn't do.  But the 3 examples above, really were kind of special to me. 🙂
