Just installed my X6 1090t BE on my ASUS M4A785-M budget board the other night. What a sweet chip it is! I've had some practice on oc'ing my previous cpu (X4 945 95watt), so oc'ing this black edition chip is much much easier
Ran some benchmarks when first installed and idle core temps at stock settings was 17C
!!!!! 5C cooler than my previous 95watt 945
This is on a Zalman 9500A 92mm cooler (not the best cooler, but not bad either). I was just a little confused that at default stock settings, the HT link runs @ 2200mhz and NB @ 2000mhz. Everything I've read about oc'ing states that HT/NB ratio should always be HT less than or equal to NB (but still no full understanding as to why)
Anyone care to comment on this?
Current settings for now are: Turbo Boost (disabled), FSB 200x19 = 3.8 Ghz @ 1.39v, 2000mhz HT link on auto voltage, RAM @ 5-5-5-15-24 800mhz @ 2.1v, and everything else on AUTO. Ran Prime95 blend test last night and woke up this morning and stopped it at 7+ hours with max temps @ 43C! (sorry no screen shot as I was running late for work
With current settings, it idles @ 21C (cool and quiet enabled). Next adjustments will be to the NB (2500mhz target value).
