You know that does seem weird now that I thought about it. You should easily be getting that cpu to 3.3ghz. Wouldn't that one go to 4.0 with the right settings and cooling? Man that was expensive in its day too.
I was searching the sweet spot in speed at stock voltage. The voltage is at 1.3+ volts. Any higher and the cpu may overheat.
Yes this cpu cost the same price as the current x99 cpus. But i got it for like 40 bucks :D. It was sitting on the display rack among the sea of used cpus at the bargin pc store.
Nice. I looked up some old threads about overclocking this one. Not sure how much 7 year old data is for you. But here is a link.
Thanks i look up and all say multiplier should do the trick. Weird
i have since updated the build and added a better CPU cooler
the stock cooler is not holding up as I expected. Hit temps up to 80 degrees which is the TJMax.
with the new 212X Hyper i getting 60+ tops
