Weekend Benching of AMD Phenom II 970 with LN2


So I got a few Processors from AMD, had weekend off because of Diwali, and was feeling a bit less lazy than usual so decided to utilize my time benching AMD Phenom II 970.

Full config of the rig below :

Processor : AMD Phenom II 970 BE
Motherboard : Asus Crosshair IV Formula
Ram : Kingston Hyper-X 2000Mhz CL7
Graphics : MSI GTX 470
PSU : CoolerMaster Real Power Pro 1000W
Benchstation : CoolerMaster Benchtable

Though Phenom II 970 has been launched a little late by AMD but its very easy to overclock and 4.2-4.4Ghz on air is possible for benchmarking which is pretty good. Everyone already knows about the capability of Crosshair IV Formula, its certainly one of the best AMD boards around, lagging behind only to its bigger cousin Crosshair IV Extreme.
My rig is still down hence only a CPUz shot for now. Will upload Superpi and Wprime results later.

Nice OC Man. Next time u plan something like this please please let me know so I can be there to witness it.

@Syed: I think 1 core and 1 thread, because he disabled the other cores to reduce heat and get max possible Mhz on his proccy. Is this right, oh great banik da?

Dont record videos man while benching. Do not have the patience to pour LN2 while holding a camera in another hand,
Super Pi was something like 11.2XX seconds. Nothing impressive once you have benched Intel.

If benching, and wife not at home then sure will let you guyz know, . Waiting for a new P55 motherboard, benching is in pipeline in the coming weeks as well.

Yup, disabled cores in the hope to get the Max clocks though that didnt really gain me much Mhz apart from around 30-60Mhz(1-2 FSB)

Nopes it can be done on all AMD processors and lately even on Intel processors. Its a BIOS feature and motherboard dependent though, but a few AMD boards I have tried even in the 790FX chipset, had always had this feature.

@ Syed...Disabling cores feature is there in the BIOS, you can choose to disable cores if you want.

And yes in next benching session, please do invite us banik, we can record it for you.

Re: Weekend Benching of AMD Phenom II 970 with LN2

^I had the same mobo as you. It has SB700 and hence doesn't have ACC.
Get any mobo with ACC and you can disable cores.


Cool OC.

Thanks man...was a bit disappointed with the chip itself. Was hoping for at the least 6800Mhz but the chip didnt agree with me.
