Hey gents, I know I really should apply/add myself to the owners club for this, I'll probably get around to it soon.

Anyways, I have an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 with an AMD FX 4170 4.2Ghz Black Edition.

I was wondering if I should/have to increase the CPU/NB voltage or if I can just up the CPU Manual voltage?
This is in regards to the start of a basic overclock just using the multiplier and cpu voltage, going off of a Bulldozer Overclocking guide found here.)

I'm new to overclocking (obviously) and any help or suggestions are MORE than welcome!

Cheers!

The CPU was @ 5.0Ghz CPU/NB and HT Link @ 2600Mhz ( I never run the HT Link higher than the CPU it can cause instability) The CPU/NB voltage was 1.4v with the LLC on regular.

So, the basic thing here to get CPU/NB to 2600 MHz is give CPU/NB even more voltage - like you wrote 1.4 V (regular? and what about CPU/NB current capability? Did you set it higher to let's say 110 % ? )

I'm currently running tests on the tridents so far it's @ 2218Mhz 9-11-11-31-2T @ 1.65v CPU/NB and HT are @ 2704Ghz. I'm using Win 8 Pro O/S. That kit should work fine I'm basically running the Tridents the same at the moment with slightly different timings.

I'll have to test your settings (maybe I will lower down CR from 1T to 2T. It shouldn't have much impact at performance - I guess).

Right! Thanks for your help thumb.gif Now it's time to get through this "painfull" OC process smile.gif

I haven't changed anything in the bios before so please can someone help me.


Do I just change the 9-9-9 to 8-8-8 ?

So, it is not so easy as it looks like, but you'll have to check this guide AMD FX Processors Unleashed | a Guide to Performance Tuning with AMD OverDrive and the new AMD FX Processors. Read it carefully and if you are not sure just ask a question here and I am sure someone will answer you. But first - read the guide. Very usefull in my opinion.

Hmm. First of all if you want to overclock your ram without touching HTRefClock (or CPU Bus/Peg Frequency) you'll have to select proper divider in BIOS menu. It also depends what kind of CPU you have. For instance Deneb and Thuban CPU doesn't see a divider for 1866 in BIOS. It changes only when you have FX (Bulldozer / Piledriver) CPU.
Remember. Higher speed needs higher voltage. Tighter timings also. I just don't know what are your correct timings for your MemSticks. And if you start to overclock your processor using HTRefClck it is natural that you will have to rise your memory voltage (probably to 1.65 V - check your manual) and CPU/NB Voltage but that depends (as I said) on the kind of CPU you have (Deneb, Thuban or FX). That's all. Before you make any changes it's good to ask because you could damage your CPU or MOBO.

Hey guys and gals. I want to know if anyone here had any problems with there Sabertooth Mobo, because I have to RMA mine for a dead PCI-E slot.

When I got mine PCI-E 16X 2 wasnt working properly, Wiggling around the card inside it got it working at full speed.
Suspect some of the pins in it had grease or something on them preventing full contact with the pins.

Well it was working at x16 then x8 I thought it was the new card doing it then x0 It's dead Jim.

it is happening the same thing for me... but it is not dead yet...

the first pci-e slot has always worked @ 8x.... but it was until some days ago, that it started working at 16x and then 4x 1.1, and then 8x 1.1 randomly...

now it is working 8x 2.0

if it is a electrical connection issue.. have you tried ( power unplugged ) some good contact cleaner spray?
i havent had any issues but my ssd went south and its down while i finsih two other projects.
im running 2 6950's

Edit: I have had motherboards come in with small pieces of ? in the pci slots. I usually take a magnifying glass and inspect them carefully and use a can of air to clean them out.. I damaged one years ago by attemping to use a small screwdriver to remove a piece of syrofoam ( bent one of the copper conectors on the inside of the slot.) So just air for me.. or contact cleaner. ( make sure can is level or you may spray that white crap on the slot with some brands of air)

that contact cleaner you are talking about... is it liquid?? or just canned air? you may be right... i want my PC to be MF tip top (Pulp Fiction quote here haha)...

how do i change the 9-9-9-24 to 8-8-8-24 and the frequency to 1600mhz in the bios i haven`t done it b4.

i didn`t know i would have to change the settings in my bios to get my ram to run at the speeds it says it runs at.

does this mean i will have to stress test coz i don`t know how to use memtest, im a bit of a noob at all this.

everything is set to auto in my bios
post #3640 of 10107
Well the PCI-e slot was clean out by air when I change video cards and video card has not been touch sence.
