19x Multiplier Max For My Phenom Black Edition?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, recently bought this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849
and
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128469

Why is it that I can only set my CPU multiplier to 19x? If I go past it, it just resets itself to 5x?

Maybe the mobo? It's not the best to OC on... 4+1 power phase. ect ect. try throwing it in a better board and see?

A better question might be why are you trying to overclock on a board with insufficient VRMs for it. This is not safe.

If you must ignore the cautions to come, try a bios update and make sure that the cpu is on the supported list at gigabyte's website.

Please get a board that will work better with this! For your PCs safety!

EDIT: It's on the supported list and they specifically list the 125w, I would imagine this is the limit. If you're drawing more than that is probably isn't safe. In fact, if you're drawing close to that it probably isn't safe.

Well the board works fine, my friend is stable @ 3.82Ghz, just odd that I cant push it past 19x.

It was a budget gaming build so I guess it is expected.

Well seeing that DDR 1333 is an OC option I guess that board is not a good overclocker. The max multi for the 955 is 36 I think. It's also got a low amount of power phases and the VRM's are un heat sinked so that's not good for any amount of overclocking, I would recommend a non MSI 790, 890 or 990 amd chipset equiped board with 8+1 or better power phases if you want to get over 4 GHz with your cpu without risking motherboard failure.

Well said. ^^ OP you just can't expect to get that much from that board. Try upping the fsb next, if you wish to get more. Otherwise you are probably stuck at where you are.

Understood thanks for the quick help guys im loving the forums!

So as I understand, the FSB is actually tweaking the mobo's clock, and the multiplier affects the cpu. What your telling me is that this board only supports the 19x option because of its own built in limitations?

Well I don't know for sure...but most likely if you want some real performance you need a better board, and they have some good ones on newegg for sale if you need some recommendations. FSB is the whole mobo ,is right, it will affect everything so you have to compensate with the other multi's. HT 2200- under NB freq and NB around 2800 higher if over 4.0.

Great, thanks for the help guys. Think were going to stick with the 3.82 GHz overclock. Were happy!

3.82 is pretty good on a board like that! I would say bravo. Most you can really do 24/7 'stable' would probably be 4 or so anyway.
