Dual Core to Quad Core
on January 1, 2011
Ok, I had an x2 6000, an x2 240 x2 250 x2 255 x2 260 and others to name a few. All AMD, a lot of computers for various people in the house.
Anyways I recieved this package faster than newegg can deliver or just as fast for some reason. Great, anyways.
I set the northbridge and ht for 1600 and I pushed the bus to 250 i set the cpu v core for a total of 1.325 I set my gskill memory at 1.50 probably dont need that much, but g skill says it is ok. memory was set to run at 1066 ddr 3 initially before over clock
The result is 3.5ghz stable 2000 on ht and 2000 on northbridge, and ddr3 1333 from the overclock. My computer has wings.
so from 2.8ghz to 3.5ghz on the cpu and ddr3 1066 to ddr3 1333. I am still running my akimbo 8800gt
no stress on anything yes this item is the c3 version, they just show an older box when advertising.
All my games play much smoother, things load faster.
I also tested a few rars with my x2 6000 and a few video encodes. The x4 rarred or encoded in half the time or faster.
Get this cheap and follow these settings, you will be happy.
