Hello.

Do you know what your temps where? if below 50c I would try more voltage on the CPU if you have headroom. 1.50v is perfectly safe for a 24/7 clock as long as your cooler can handle the heat.

No problem for cooling this cpu, but this voltages is very much for a 3.6ghz or i am wrong?

No, pends on the chip. Some will need lots of voltage for a minor clock, other's dont need squat to clock like a champ. Also his NB is too low. 2600+ for stability.

EDIT: Here is how I overclock my Phenom II's. Set CPU voltage and CPU/NB voltage to the maxximum safe 24/7 voltage's. (For me I set them to 1.50Vcore(CPU) and 1.40(CPU/NB). Then I start playing with Overclock settings, buss speed multi what ever. When I get a clock I like I will back the voltage's off one at a time, small step by small step. Do this with each voltage until it fails a test, then add a little more to the last one you changed. Easy way for me to find the sweet spot for voltage's. Final voltage's ended up being 1.45vore and 1.30 CPU/NB.

And leave the ram at 100% stock. Tweak the RAM after you get a stable CPU and CPU/NB:)

Hey guys,

could someone please assist me in updating my BIOS. I have the gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 mobo.

Voltage on the cpu core should be enough,

However Khaotic has some good advice. Bump your NB multiplier up to x10.

Also, I always noticed that running the same voltage to the HT bus as the CPU/NB can help stability as well. I would try 1.3v on both HT and CPU/NB.

another thing to push is your memory voltage. It is showing 1.49v in that picture. push the Memory voltage to around 1.6v. The UD3 boards are really off on the memory voltage from the bios. For example: I have mine set @ 1.7v in the bios to net me 1.66 actual dimm voltage. Setting the voltage to 1.65v in the bios will get you just a hair over 1.6 actual volts.

try this out and let us know.

Download your bios here and extract it to a drive / Location you can easily remeber...

http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3880#bios

Using the Gigabyte q-flash utillity that is built into the board is pretty easy. Here is a short video showing a little bit about how to use it.

(Although this video is not of your exact board, it is a gigabyte board using the same q-flash utillity.)

HT bus? Are you referring to the HT link voltage?

@Rik756

I have a very similar 1090T and Hyper 212+ Push/Pull setup. My chip also defaults to 1.44 and it did apparently need to stay at that voltage to hit 3.8GHz.. My Hyper 212+ couldn't quite keep the heat down to hit 4GHz with my 2 video cards adding heat to the case air. I'd expect you can hit a similar 3.8GHz and 2600/2800 NB with your current setup, assuming your ambient room temperature is not something like 80F.

OK guys...

Here's my preliminary results...after days and days of testing and reading...this is what I have achieved...

414

AIDA 64 gave me this...can't go any higher...

485

FInally, there's quick run with Cinebench 11.5...

363


363


Now...I have a problem...
NB wont go a one milimeter from default, or straight away there's BSOD...same goes if I try to do FSB OC...no way...
ATMO I am using F6f again with APM disabled as well as TCB...and I did install a MS BD patch just to give it a go...
So, ppl, what do you think...
I am looking for "workable" OC...24/7 thing without a noise and high temps...and must admit, once you leave 4GHz BD starting changing it's facial grimace into fairly wolfie one...
