Help with CPU-NB OC

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I want to overclock my CPU-NB but when I set the multiplier to more than 10x (2000mhz) it just won't work. My PC stucks at loading windows, I have tried with different voltages up to 1.325V. Any idea?

Using the signature PC.

Well disabling AMD C1E seems to solve this particular issue. Hope that help somebody.

Disable CPU spread spectrum, CnQ, set voltage to 1.35v and multiplier to 13x.

I'm currently at 1.25V with 13x multiplier and it seems to be fine...

Good to know your pc is not stucking at windows no more, now push harder go for 2800~3000

I'll tried that for sure! But I'll wait till my new cooler arrives...

watchout with overclock
the gigabyte 870 mainboard doesnt have VRM heatsinks, so if you overclock heavily they might melt or explode if they go too hot, keep an eye out on temperatures and if necessary buy some passive cooling for the MOSFETs

i marked the area in red that needs cooling (area top right it has 2 screws if u want to put a cooler on it)

^ Definitely listen to this person. Overclocking a Phenom II x6 on any sort of 4+1 mobo that does not have proper cooling installed is definitely rather unwise, as it's a very VRM heavy chip.
Might wanna update the BIOS.

Get MOSFET cooling. Then push for closer to 3 GHz. Right now I'm running my CPU/NB at 3 GHz with 1.356v.

@Germanian: Thank you for the feedback Germanian! Next month I'll grab a Enzzotech cooler (I'm broken right now) and try to push my chip a little bit. Currently running at 3.3ghz and 3.7 turbo with 2600 CPU-NB upping my voltage 0.1v and lowering the CPU voltage by 0.1v

@xd_1771: I have read your post about VRM's and that's why I dediced to change my motherboard from a crappy MSI 870-G45 (thank you!). I was going to take a Gigabyte GA-870a-UD3 (8+2/split) but it was gone the day before =/
My mobo came flashed with the lastest BIOS.
