So yea, I picked up an ultra cheap FX-55 from NewEgg for $139 shipped. Upon arrival, it had a stepping of CABCE 0520MPM (which I have seen on FX-57 cores.) Seems to be a pretty good overclocking stepping/batch. http://forums.techarp.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=18571&d=1160721105 http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=129632 I cranked it up on the stock multiplier up till 3GHz (231HTT x 13x). http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=129711 I lowered the multiplier and I'm now going to go high FSB. I just left it on memtest windows overnight (actually, I fell asleep LMAO.) So gonna increase it some more. It's at 310HTT x 10x multiplier at 1.5v and it has more to give. http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=129907 I might have to increase the multiplier to 11x soon coz I don't know when I will hit the FSB limit of the board. Gonna increase it some more. Cooling is done on my modded Corsair Nautilus 500. Will keep you guys posted.... Gonna spend my weekend pushing this baby to the max!
