AMD Phenom 9600 overclocking report

Posted on Monday, January 21 2008 @ 01:31:55 CET by

ExtremeTech has published a report about their overclocking experiences with the AMD Phenom 9600 CPU:
We've already slapped the Phenom 9600 vs. an Intel Core 2 Quad and the Phenom didn't do so well. That got us thinking…would the AMD chip fare better if we cranked up the frequency? Would it allow much in terms of overclocking at all?

We tossed together an AMD-based system, complete with an ATI Radeon HD 3870 graphics card, and attacked it through the BIOS setup program of its ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe motherboard. What would the system show in terms of gains? How's the heat with a well-regarded air cooler (the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro)? Can we make this CPU worth building a Spider platform system based upon it?
Read on over here. Overall the conclusion remains the same: the Phenom doesn't impress.

U know I'd rather pay 220.00 to 300.00 over 560.00 to 1200.00 any day. people always downgrade AMD. What I think is funny is that all things are not regarded when it comes to AMD. AMD has a good product at an excellent Price. and lets not forget how Intel's Quad Core Performs. Ive seen a lot of ppl angry because there Intel's quad core runs so hot its hard to keep the temp down.
Maybe thats why u didn't put the Intel Quad against the Amd Quad. And lets not forget that AMD is a true quad core unlike Intel's.
Also the Intel Quad Is way to expensive for a lot of ppl. so when it comes down to it id rather have An AMD that "DON'T IMPRESS"

    Sry u did put thr intel quad against the AMD Quad. heat problems are much worse with the intel's quad then With the AMD Quad.
    And yes i did lower case for intel on purpose!
