  1. I have OCed my AMD 555 BE to 4Ghz which boots into windows but still have to test it out. Just wondering what do you think? I will be trying more options but id love to get the clock higher ;)

    Name: NotoriousAI
    Processor: AMD 555 BE
    Clock: 4000Mhz
    Mobo: Asus M4N78-SE
    Voltage: 1.504v (can only add 50, 100, 150 voltage so yeh).
    Cooler: Arctic Cooler Freezer Pro 7

    This is first overclock that is stable @ 4Ghz, normally I am at 3.6 to 3.8 Ghz but il try to push it today to higher. The vcore is quite high as well....

    Too hot? I think the Voltage is tad bit too high.

    Are you really willing to trash your computer?

    Hah no I was wanting to Push it hard! :p But I am back to 1.4Vcore since I can't lower it anymore @ 3.6Ghz x 18.0

    Just wanted to see what will work ... I heard that the 555 BE can be OCed to 4Ghz on Air so I tried that, worked but then it BSOD after while... guess it could be because iv put wrong settings and should of changed the bus speed too...

    I guess with today's motherboards and CPU's, if you over-clock too high they will BSOD or show other problems before they are damaged. I can get to 4GHz, but after a few hours, the computer freezes

    I also have a 555BE and running it @4GHz with vCore @1.6 - 1.65 (depending on what needs to be done) and it works just fine, I can even set the vCore to the max (for the mobo) without any problems. Anyhow, then if you want some more performance after OCing the CPU to the max you can adjust the NB/HT, default 2000MHz but now running at 2600MHz ;)
