Want to overclock CPU...

post #1 of 7

..But complete noob when it comes to overclocking, can someone give me general advice/guidance with regards to my unlocked CPU?? Also at the sme time could I ask, is it worth it getting an 1055T? I saw one for £80, so just wondering, or should i wait for bulldozer? thanks

Well, it might be worth getting the 1055T, the bulldozer CPU's in the UK aregoing to be roughly £300+ for the 8 core ones, not exactly sure about the prices on the other Bulldozer CPU's

But he 1055T can be a beast to overclock! it can do 4.0GHz just fine and 3.0GHz on the Northbridge

Woah! where did you find the 95W one? I'd love to get my hands on one of them too lol, there rare to get aswell xD

It runs at a much lower tempature than the 125W edition and it can overclock slightly better too.

Yeah, that motherboard will be fine

for noob overclocking, just up the multiplier by .5 increments until you have stability issues, then back it back down a notch.

use Intel Burn Test for quick stability tests between bios adjustments.

download IBT here http://majorgeeks.com/IntelBurnTest_d5987.html click on one of the download locations.

on boot/post press delete to go into the bios.

you'll want the advanced (or similar) page. use arrow keys no navigate and enter to change values.

Bio's vary a bit but you may have to change some setting to manual before you can change the multiplier.

When you raise the multiplier, your core speed will increase. press f10 to save your settings and load into windows.

use a temp monitoring program like core temp, or speedfan, or hwmonitor, to keep an eye on your load temps while running IBT (intel burn test)

You dont really want to get load temps higher than 55c.

Run 5 passes of IBT on standard and keep eye on temps. if all is good, restart into bios and up the multiplier another notch, then save and boot to windows and re-test.

once instability is reached (failed IBT or blue screen) back multiplier down a notch. Higher overclocks past this point will require voltage adjustments and other tweaks.

Good luck.

Thanks alot! thats the kinda thing i was looking for, but I read something about also adjusting something to the RAM?? while cpu overclocking..? or is that something else

you want to get your ram running at their rated specs and timings. To do so, you might have to change the dram ratio then change the timings and voltages.

if your ram is rated at 1600 9-9-9-24 1.65v the you would change your dram ratio to whatever gets you to 1600, the go into the ram sub-section in the cell menu (bios screens) and change the timings to 9-9-9-24 for the first four sections.

Then back to the screen where you can change the cpu multiplier (hit escape to go back to the previous screen) and further down the list, you'll see options to change the cpu voltage and below that a few lines, there will be dram voltage. Manually set that to 1.65 (for example) by hitting enter and typing 1.65 (or typing 1.65 and hitting enter)

You have not listed what ram you are using, and I was trying to keep things simple so I did not go into this. There are lots of good guides to overclocking here at OCN. It's quite fun when you start getting the hang of it.

Write down your settings that work in case you push a little to far and the pc wont post. If this happenes, depending on your motherboard, you may have to switch a jumper or pull out the cmos battery to reset the bios. Some mainboards have a cmoc reset button which makes things easier..

Good luck!
