I set the Overclock AI to automatic and set my memory at DDR3 1600. I noticed my CPU was running at ~3.9Ghz from just that minimum adjustment. I read somewhere that because I'm using a AMD Phenom II x6 Black Edigtion that I don't need to do anything except the CPU multiplier to overclock, Is this true? Don't I need to adjust the other settings to get the full benefit of the DDR3 1600 (12800)?

Please advise. I listed my system specs up above in the previous thread.

Thanks.

Anyone have a similar setup with Asus Sabertooth 990FX, AMD Phenom II x6 1100T, Mushkin DDR3 1600 (12800) 2x4G?

I need advice on overclocking this setup, I'm sure this beast could handle 4+ Ghz...

Thanks,

I just got my board in and got my system rebuilt, this board is a BEAST! Way better than my crappy old M5A97.

Fired right up at 4.2ghz IBT stable. Great googly moogly!

Hi. I would like to be added to the list.
I would also like to know has anyone been able to change the HT speed in the bios.I was able to use overdrive but i prefer to use the bios to do hardware settings.

AMD 1090T @ 4ghz

And I added a screenshot. Anyone else have any TUF wallpapers?

EDIT: Well I mucked up while updating the list myself. Is it possible to fix that hyperlink?

1.5vcore, CPU LLC @ Ultra High, 1.3v NB, 1.3v CPU/NB, 200 x 21. That's pretty much it....

I actually dropped it back to 4.1 for 24/7 as I can pull off 8+ hour prime stable w/ only 1.46vcore. I mean 1.5 isn't bad and it stays cool with the Silver Arrow and probably would be nothing to worry about but I do like keeping it under 1.5v personally.

I think that is my main limiting factor too, 1.5+ seems high for 24/7 use to me, I might change my mind before long though. It seems like I just managed to get 4.12 (265x15.5 @ 1.49375, 2920mhz CPU/NB @ 1.3375v) stable with some voltage tweaks. I do notice that you are running you NB/HT higher, does that give you more stability? My NB/HT has been left alone at 1.2v so far...
