Will go until it becomes unstable.. I have the Corsair H80water cooler installed. That should handle it.

Yes, there's the CPU ratio and also the CPU Bus/PEG Frequency.
The second one is also how you can OC the RAM and NB frequencies. Just make sure when you use this to drop down the CPU Ratio if you already have it up some, otherwise your CPU frequency will jump up even higher.

Did that by accident once and I get an unstable 4.8 GHz on my 955 tongue.gif

Which is preferred, freq or ratio? Does the Frequency give you any advantages over the ratio/multiplier? I'm at 4.1 GHz now, and plan on pushing it a bit more.
post #2104 of 10135
To be honest, I have no idea. All I know is that the CPU Bus/PEG Frequency also alters things besides the CPU.

And you have a top-of-the-line CPU at the moment. If you stop at 4.1 I'm sure people would make fun of you tongue.gif

Have you been testing your overclocks to make sure they're stable?

CPU Bus/PEG Frequency sets the reference clock frequency from which the processor, memory, memory controller and the HT bus are derived. Adjusting this value allows granular control over these bus frequencies which can then be offset using multiplier control of each corresponding bus to ensure that the functional limitations of a bus are not breached while overclocking the system.

Here is my little overclock on my FX8120 tongue.gif

im gonna toss my 1090T into it, should welcome it with open arms =)

Alright, who wants to tell me how to get the most of this thing, i will be throwing DUAL radeon 6870's into this board, a Phenom II x6 1090T cpu (eventually O.C'd back to 4ghz, and my 8 gigs of gskill "ripjaw" 1333 memory

(I really don't know why I'm not receiving email notifications about topic replies anymore. I think it has something to do with the site's flashy new design.) Thanks. I'm not going to overclock anything right now, I just want to prevent auto-underclocking. I've already got spread spectrum switched from "Auto" to "Disabled". My biggest problem right now seems to be the clock. The actual clock, as in minutes and seconds. It'll fall behind a couple of minutes every 24hrs or so, which wasn't a problem with the MSI-790FX I'd upgraded from. It's a brand-new Duracell button cell I've put in, maybe I need to put in a lithium battery. Or maybe the constant auto-adjusting of all the voltages is throwing the clock off.

Hi there! I am for the first time here.
Planning to upgrade to Sabretooth MOBO from my (a little bit old, but still great) MSI 790FX-GD70.

I wonder if you could answer me if Asus Sabertooth mobo supports this drive --> OCZ REVODRIVE PCI-EXPRESS SSD ?

I didn't find any information about it on their list of supported motherboards though "Asus Sabertooth X58 BIOS V0505" (Disable Marvell RAID) is there but it's quite different chip so I just wonder ... will it work on this 990FX MOBO ? sneaky.gif

Yeap! I saw that, but I asked about OCZ Revodrive 1 not OCZ Revodrive 3 - that's (probably) a little difference, right? And HERE they don't say clearly that it will work with 990FX Sabertooth Mobo thinking.gif
