It occurs to me that some basic numbers for the last-last gen Phenom x4 CPU's has not yet been mentioned.
(Plus, Jip PM'd me which I wasn't expecting at all, so this warrants some response
My Phenom x4 9850 BE 2.5ghz (at a very stable 3.1ghz - 15.5x200, 1.329v) will make:

I hope you don't mind that I copied your format, Chaosdsm. I apologize for not having more data, but it took a lot of tinkering to finally get my proc to fold without crashing due to what I now know was an under-voltage (it was at 1.25v, now 1.329v), and also for the ram - Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066 @ 2.2v - to have it's way with my board as well.
Additional Elderly AMD OC Info SPOILERIZED:
However, you wouldn't want to run SMP on the Phenom x4 at these speeds with a wimpy cooler. My Hyper212 is barely cutting it and the proc is getting into the high 50's (though Speedfan will report the high 60's almost the instant that SMP starts to tax all four cores, the system would not remain stable at those temps if they were being reported correctly).
In an interesting twist, while my new Foxconn Destroyer
has a lot more fine-grain control over RAM timings, voltages, and other things, I was able to achieve a higher stable overclock of the same proc on an Asus motherboard with no voltage changes. (15.5x200, 1.25v). It should be noted that the older Phenoms (AM2+) do not like to have the bClock changed whatsoever. Even just a little nudge to 10mhz over the 200mhz default would produce a BSOD.
Hope this helps those OC'ing older AMD chips out there, and hope it's not too much to swallow.
I will have more HFM data later as it comes in (Saying, of corpse, that my chip stays stable and cool. I plan to see what a Zalman 7700CU will do in addition to it's ability to cool my v-regs. Another ful tear-down: meh

(Yes, I am a member, no I won't ever fold for them
I am going to upgrade to a Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition which I hope to get as high as 3.6~3.8ghz on my Hyper212 Plus. When this happens, I will no longer have this elderly 9850 BE, but will post the PPD / Frame Time / Core info for the 965 BE instead. I will also post operating temps, ambient temps and idle temps.
