How easy would overclocking be? (1100T BE)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking to switch from Intel to AMD, I am looking to build my new rig with a Phenom 1100t. To get the performance I would like I need to overclock it of which I have no experience. My local computer shop said they would OC it for me from 3.3GHz to 3.97GHz for £45. I could really do without that cost because money is the main reason im changing from Intel to AMD, I already have a Corsair H80 and a XFX pro 750W core edition PSU so that should be able to handle the OC but as mentioned I have no idea how to OC.

Should I take him up on the offer for £45 or try and do it myself?

thanks smile.gif

Lol no

give me £25 and i'll give you the settings. I'd expect at least 4Ghz maybe 4.2Ghz on an 1100t

Just up your Vcore and your multiplier, it's an unlocked multiplier on that CPU so it's easy as pie.

Just look up guides and do it yourself. It's crazy to actually pay someone to overclock your cpu in my opinion.

The only time I would consider recommending someone to pay for an overclock would be if it was a sandybridge processor stable at 5.5Ghz or something.

Set the multiplier to 20, giving you a 4GHz overclock, no need to touch the bus frequency then I'd suggest changing your voltage to 1.45v. Then after running Prime95 if it's stable, gradually lower the voltage until the system becomes unstable so you can settle on a good 4Ghz 24/7 stable overclock. I hope this helps

As others have said, just go into your BIOS, raise your multiplier to 20x, and bump your voltage. Maybe raise CPU/NB to 2400 or 2600 MHz. Then test in Prime95. Paying for an overclock... only people who buy Alienwares do that.

A kindred soul!
Just this past weekend I toyed with OCing for the first time with this very same processor. I changed the CPU/NB to 2400 from the base 2000, though I'm unable to raise the multiplier past 19 using the stock voltage, providing a stable 3.8ghz. If I had known what I was doing from the start it would have taken less than 5 minutes. Definitely not worth the price that he was going to charge you!

I plan on taking the advice from this forum after work today and upping the voltage a smidge to hopefully sit pretty at 4.0ghz. Please keep us updated on your progress.
