Not sure how this got here...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I decided I'd try to overclock my CPU, for reals this time. My 6950 disappointed me by not being unlockable; No way my 1090T will disappoint me.

I couldn't quite get it to work though. Went all the way to 1.45V before getting scared off, but I was only playing with the multiplier. Then, on another failed boot, I noticed that this board has some kind of built in overclocking profile. It worked perfectly. I tweaked it a little, and it seems to run fine. I'm not comfortable with the voltage, but I'm not entirely sure how to proceed from here. All the voltage settings you see in Hardware Monitor were set up that way in the profile.

So, a few questions:
1. How did this profile get here?
2. How did the voltage settings get chosen?
3. What settings would you suggest to improve safety whilst keeping the clocks about the same?

The only things I modified were the CPU-NB (worked on first try; probably could go higher; profile had it at default 2000), the FSB, the RAM voltage (I put it back at default, since it hasn't been overclocked at all; the profile had it overvolted) and the CPU multiplier. The FSB was changed from 200 to 300, and the multiplier was bumped down a little to get around 4GHz. The rest was in the profile.

Alternatively, how would I determine whether 1.5V is sufficiently safe?

This OC is fairly stable (P95 has been running for about 4 hours now). Load temps do not go above 50cish (different programs are giving me different readings), and idle temps are around 25c. I've personally never seen this CPU cooler allow my 1090T to go above 53c, and it only seems to do that for stress tests. Otherwise, average load temp is about 45c.

Oh, and I guess option three is all of the sensors lie, and I should cease my investigation in order to prevent an embarrassing incident with a fire extinguisher. Never know..

Screenshot below. Let me know if you think of a program that I should run that would give you a better idea on what's going on - I think there are some voltage settings that aren't showing up. I'm kind of a nubcake at overclocking; this is the first rig I've ever had that has overclocking potential.

I appreciate your help.

Edited: i misread your post. Id take those voltages off auto though 1.4 should be more then anough for those clocks.

edit2: you could probably even go lower then 1.4.

Be careful with that motherboard and overclocking that 1090T many people have fried their boards!

If you would read his post you would know that are load temps.

MSI is well known for their horrible mosfets, so it's not the safest thing to do to run a 6 core on one, let alone OC it. They can easily catch fire on stock too.

I edited my post right after actually, and why not give some helpful input instead of just correcting a mistake?..

Voltages aren't on auto. The profile is set up with specific numbers.

EDIT: Oh, and yes, those are load temps. Idles are around 25c. I forgive you; Long post is long.

EDIT2: Stopped P95 for now. Results:

You are sure you didnt just, not see the profiles option before btw? or maybe when you started overclocking the option enabled itself in the bios. Those temps look grand anough i suppose tbh, but you should defo be able to lower them further if you see the need to.

Have you an option to turn VDroop off in your bios? it could give you and opportunity to lower your volts a good bit. its usually called CPU load sync, or something along the lines of that. When i got my volts down from ~1.35v to current i got my temps down a good ~5c

Your HT Link is probably going to cause stability problems. Try to keep it as close to 2000mhz as possible.

IMO Dr Mos is pretty good.
