Guys finally solved the problem. The problem wasn't with the mobo. It was the ram. Corsair vengeance. They ran perfect when used single but when used in dual channel, bsod. Now I have got g.skill ripjaws x.
2x4gb ddr3. 1600mhz..
R they good for oc?
Pals would b posting screen shots of my current bios settings, do let me know wot to disable and enable for oc starting as I m new....

For starters go into "Advanced BIOS Features"

AMD C1E Support - Disable
AMD k8 Cool&Quiet control - Disable

Now depending on if you have a Unlocked multiplier CPU or a locked one will determine which settings in "MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) you will enable and disable. Best bet is to search for an overclock guide on your CPU.

Hope this helped

Okay just ordered the 990XA...should be here by tomorrow.

This one better work.

Best bet would be to PM xd_1771 He has the same CPU as you, as well as the same motherboard. I'm sure he could help you overclock it, if you ask him nicely enough. I pretty much have no experience with the 1055t CPU. Since my CPU has a unlocked multiplier, it's a totally different way to overclock.

Nope, the need to turn this off is a huge misconception.
I run my impressive 1.42V 4Ghz OC on my x6, both enabled.
Turning off either of these will do NOTHING to benefit your OC, raise your idle temps, and reduce processor longetivity.

KEEP THEM ON!

angel.tdw: Good time to look at some of the AM3 overclocking guides that are stickied around the forums. If I had any more time today I'd most surely post a more detailed write up for you.

I have a routine for overclocking locked AMD CPUs, worked well with my 1075T and 965BE CPUs in the past smile.gif
  • Change "CPU Host Clock Control" to Manual, and increase the "CPU Frequency MHz" to 300 (this way the memory multipliers will line up to 1600MHz with x5.33)
  • Change "Set Memory Clock" to Manual and set it to x5.33
  • Drop the "CPU Clock Ratio" to 13.5 for 4.05GHz, 13 for 3.9GHz
  • Change "CPU Northbridge Freq" to x8 or x9, for 2400MHz or 2700MHz (depending on how well the CPU NB overclocks) I would only recommend x10 3000MHz NB for benching, needs a lot of voltage!
  • Set "System Voltage Control" to Manual and Increase "CPU NB VID Control" to 1.225v for 2400MHz, 1.275v for 2700MHz (2700MHz may need a little more, but I found Thuban based CPUs like 1075T and 840T didn't need as much as Deneb)
  • Increase "CPU Voltage Control" to 1.45v, run stress tests and increase to 1.475v if the system is unstable. Repeat for 1.475v and try 1.5v if it needs it

When changing voltages, don't confuse "CPU NB VID Control" with "NB Voltage Control", do not change "NB Voltage Control"

Leave Cool 'n' Quiet and C1E Enabled as already mentioned, your CPU will idle at 1200MHz 1.1v-ish, save you some power when you're not stressing the system smile.gif

For stress tests this is more of a personal preference, but I like to run Prime95 along with a GPU workload like Unigine Heaven. So many times I thought I had a good overclock (ran Prime95 for 24hr stable) just to have it BSOD in a game like GTA IV biggrin.gif Mix up the stress tests

I've always turned off those features. I rarely use my desktop, only when I game, so its not a power hog.. laptops are for web browsing. That said, your right, if you can C1E one core to a lower power state while keeping others high, you could get better OC w/ thermal limitations.

How do you test for stability at the CNQ range? hackery to force windows to downclock then run prime95? The voltage values are preset, as well as the multipliers. So when you OC, your "low" state could be 8*200 = 1600 Mhz @ 1.1v, but after OC, 8*250 = 2000 Mhz (still at 1.1v).
