Getting more out of my 1055T

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I admit it. I'm afraid to add voltage to my 1055t. I can't fold on it without it failing and screwing my PC up until I restart. I would like to fold on it and the only way to do so is to increase voltage (or back down clocks but that would be dumb ).

In my BIOS, the increments go something like .8000, .8250 (idk I'm trying to remember I'll check again in a sec.) Should I just bump it up one increment?

What's safest?

Here's some info on my 1055T:

Thanks!

UPDATE

I was successfully able to up my Vcore to around 1.350v or so and I just finished my first SMP WU (using only 4cores but I GPU3 and GPU2 as well). I may try to raise my Vcore a bit more and get to 3.6GHz or higher?

Don't be scared, embrace the power

When I was running 3.5GHz, I believe I was at 1.32 or 1.33vcore. I'm currently at 4GHz at 1.43vcore. It's apparently safe up to 1.475, at least before severe CPU degradation pops up. At this point, you'll need to either bump up voltage, or reduce clock, since it's evidently unstable.

Okay I'll try bumping up one increment and reporting back. I'm scared!!

Anything else is completely stable just not SMP folding.

Thank you!

The way I would do it would be to just go to the voltage that seems good to me and test downwards to get to the lowest, but this is for more experienced users that understand the voltage maxes and ranges.

But for you just do like you said, start low and work your way up slowly and be sure to test when you bump it up. But to be honest it would take quite a while to bump a little and test.

Oh, it would help if you could add a pic of your BIOS setup, as well. Make sure you have all your settings right and whatnot

What I did when I was first starting was get my clock to where I wanted, then use the past experiences reported here to get it to the minimum voltage recorded for that clock. Then, bump it up 2-3 steps at a time until stable. Once stable, see if I could drop it back down a step or two. Helps a lot with amount of time spent because, essentially, other people have done most of the work for me.

Okay so I bumped up the voltage one increment. All hell broke loose. After I saved and exited, GPU's were at full speed and the screen was blank. Nothing. So I had to force it off. Wait 10 sec, then turn it back on. It was acting weird when I turned it back on and pressed delete when I had to. The screen said my OC failed and I just turned the voltage back to auto.

Here are some pics I took of my bios. Not sure if they are of much help.

EDIT: Could my error have been that raising it .8000 was too much? This has to be the problem because 1.280v (stock) + that .8000 increment = 2.08 which is too much. Correct?

ANOTHER EDIT: ^^^^Not correct. If I type in 0.0125, it just automatically puts in .8000. So fail.

As long as your temps are ok (below 62C) then you can give it up to 1.55v. I believe that is supposed to the the "safe limit" for voltage on air/water cooling. I personally would like to keep mine under 55c and 1.5v if I were you.

I can't even add one voltage increment to it as it just goes nuts. I may have to stay at stock volts for now because it flat-out does not work at all. It couldn't even POST.

Take a look at the thumbnails I posted of my BIOS. What voltage should I be raising? Raising Processor Voltage is a big N-O. CPU/NB voltage then?
