another 1090t overclocking help =P - Page 3

post #21 of 39
I wouldn't be putting the blame on the entire brand. Perhaps a certain kit but the entire brand would be ridiculous.

If I can throw in my 2 cents I am very happy with my G Skills.

Just a few notes, most 1090T's can reach 4.0GHz with 1.38-1.41v. You may to try 250 x 16 instead of straight multiplier (200 x 20). This will give you more performance. Make sure most items are manually entered in bios and not left on auto (Vcore, CPU/NB voltage, Dram timings, Dram voltage, HT Link Speed and NB Freq) After stabilizing CPU than raise NB Freq as high as possible (2800-3000MHz) where many can run 3000MHz at 1.35-1.4v CPU/NB voltage. Save OCing the ram till last.
All this should be done one area at a time, here's a very good guide http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html which will help explain "How To" OC plus give you a good path to follow. Take your time and study the link. OCing takes time and lots of testing in between each step. If you want the most out of your system take the time and learn as you go. You'll be a lot happier rather than asking others for their settings. Even systems with identical components will have different needs that only you can find by testing.

If I can help you any further feel free to PM me as I'm always happy to help those that ask. Good luck, and have fun!

Use Intel Burn Test on very high six threads for 20 runs then 8-12 hrs of prime 95 on blend.

Or better yet run both IBT and Prime 95 at the same time.
Not so much of this...12hrs of CPU burning...not my idea of keeping a system...ummm performing.

An obviously personal statement of failure to clock up the user's own RAM. Gskill is sometimes delicate, therefore you must utilize every possible timing that can be changed for that "sweet spot". Might take a few hours might take a few months.

So your saying not to do 8 + hrs of prime 95?

What would you suggest for stability testing ?
post #25 of 39
Thread Starter 
thanks everyone for your help =) i guess its all about playing around with it. At least now i have a basic where i can start from is all i needed =) I will deff ask you sandman for help if i need =) ill try what you said and use the guide to move on from there.

Im using a two 4gb ram btw sorry for that mix up. As for doing 12-24hrs of prime and what not...welll no. Its not like im going to be playing for 24hrs. The most ill ever do is 4 hrs then break time do something else and come back. ive heard its not necessary to do 12hrs. 1-2hrs is recommended unless you do folding or high intense like video editing whatnot. Running 3dmark fully normally tells you if your stable and running occt for 1-2hrs makes sure you are fully stable. Its what i read on a oc guide before. on here too.


p.s i have no time or patience(which i have a lot of since i do programming) to sit there and watch my pc for 12hrs using occt and checking temps when i could be online playing bfbc 2 or something =P

You are perfectly allowed to do this, but gaming is NOT a stability tester.

Infact, you could be having thousands of micro-errors being written to your disks, primarily where there is a lot of the read-write going in for every Windows operation there is. So errors will eventually build up to the point where something with break in functionality and you won't have any good idea of whats causing it.

The extended period Prime95 gives you a level of accuracy on your CPU to ensure you are not slowly corrupting every single file stored on your computer to where its garbage. Far too many people think that there computer is perfectly safe for a few hours of use because they Blended for 30 minutes. This isn't what Prime95 shows you. It doesn't matter if it takes 3 minutes, or 12 hours, if you get an error or a crash, it CAN HAPPEN AT ANY MOMENT. Being stable at 12 hours doesn't mean you can use your computer for 12 hours guaranteed no errors or problems.

An unstable overclock is a ticking time-bomb waiting to happen, then you will come back to the forums, wondering why you have yogi the bear porn for a desktop wallpaper, your Hard Drive looks like a CD-Rom in "My Computer" and Windows folder has been renamed using the Farsii side of the ASCII alphabet. You can kiss any homework / work you have edited at this point good bye. Might as well just do a full reformat with all your data on it because data recovery is useless, as data recover will recover the damaged versions of the files, because the CPU saved it that way.

Like I said, the choice is yours. I just wanted to make sure you know this, whoever told you that about stability and recommendations is simply ignorant.

P.S. G.Skill is an amazing brand by my experience.

P.P.S. 1090T @ 4.2GHz requires about 1.45~1.50v depending on the cpu, maybe a touch closer to 1.52v at full load. Always keep temps under about 57c, I experienced some "instability" around this temp and higher. You may also want to look at overclocking your CPU-NB Frequency to about 3000 MHz, if you are feeling brave. A 4.0 GHz 1090T with a 3.0 GHz NB Frequency is quite a potent combination and makes for a very powerful gaming friendly setup.

Ok i have been playing with my Setup all week. Raising the HT kills performance. Leave it at 2000.

Give this a try

If i had your board i would try 1.55V on cpu as a starting point an come down from there.
Nb 2500 an 1.3V to 1.35V.
HT 2000Mhz DONT CHANGE this.
FSB mine likes 250 give it a try this is where my 1090T likes to be.
for your mem set it at what its made to run as a starting point till you get a good Cpu Overclock. hope this helps some.

ragingchain thanks for the advice what do you recommend for testing stability after im done overclocking? 18-12hrs? Thanks for the settings moparman ill try those and see what i can get but ist 1.55V the max? ive heard 1.5 is pushing it.
Some of the dram settings i have no cule what they are so i left the ones i didnt know on auto. for example dram timing which one do i choose? DCT 0 or DCT 1 or both?

Dram timing manual
CAS: 9
2t Command: 1T
TRCD 9
TRP 9
tRTP auto
TRAS 28
TRC 37
tWR 12
TRRD 5
tWTR auto
tRFC1 auto
tRFC2 auto
tRFC3 auto

memclock set to 1600 which in cpu-z shows 800 which i understand since its divided by 2

looks good? i hope with the amount of bsod Ive been getting trying to make my oc stable doesnt hurt my pc.

so at 250 x16 it wont even boot =/ it was before i might have to clear the cmos and see. for setting mem volts to manual how do i do that? do i use overvolts to get more volts into it? i think its the memory not getting enough volts thats making me not be able to boot or be unstable

200 x20 with 1.5v works atm and i have mem set to .020v overvolts along with 1.875v 2000mhz NB boots but idk about stability i still have to test it
