Few Questions about OC on 955 BE

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a few questions about my Phenom x4 955 Black Edition. First off, since it's black edition, I don't have to decrease my ram, fsb, etc speeds right? And second, what is the most stable clock without core voltage increase. And finally, is voltage increasing bad, because I'd love to get 4.0ghz but I hear 3.8ghz is the max and 4.0 has no great performance increases. Thanks!

well since it is black you are right you do not need to change ram,fsb. However you will want to OC your northbridge, which requires those. Also Phenom 2's are fully save under 1.55v so dont be scared about increasing ur v core.

Couldn't I just increase the multiplier instead of northbridge?
post #4 of 47
that does not work because at it starts at the highest multiplier

I thought that since it's black edition, the multiplier isn't locked, so if the 200mhz setting(forget what it's called), i could just set the multiplier to 19 to get 3.8ghz? Is this wrong? I was told by a few people I could do this.

yes that does work. How ever if you also over clock the north bride it increase the over all performance of your computer.

Alright, cool. I don't really want to mess with the northbridge, as I don't know what I'm doing and I don't think my mobo is that great. msi 870a-g54 if you know anything about it

Well, my motherboard is listed as blowing VRMs when I OC. If I leave it at stock 3.2 ghz or go up to 3.5 for instance, will this stop the VRM blowing? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?

so just see how high you can oc on stock voltage. And do not increase vcore to prevent it. However as you cans see most they blow the VRM is around 1.45v. SO just keep it under 1.4v and you should be save.
