Overclocking AMD Phenom II x6 1090t

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, been reading these forums forever to help with my overclocking needs, but I recently got the Asus m5a97 motherboard, and this whole UEFI and voltage control is great, but it's a bit advanced for a guy like me

My previous board was an asus m3a78, and I got my 1090t to 3.9Ghz stable with +150mv to the cpu, +100mv to the northbridge, and I think around 50mv for ram overvolt. Seems like it would be easy to just migrate those settings over, but I don't remember the exact voltages I was using, and was asking you guys if you have any recommendations, easiest way to show you my settings are this:
and


Should I increase or lower my settings, It seems stable, but my temps get pretty hot under load ( around 63-65 ) on my old board they seemed to hover around 60 even, It's not much but I'd like to get to 4Ghz and maintain those temps, any help would be appreciated.

I know a better cooling solution would be my best bet, but as it is, the H60 is $70, and I'm broke, so looking here to see if anyone has experience with this new bios and any advice they can give, thanks!

you need to back down if you are hitting 65c.
around 62 is listed as the max temp for thubans.

It appears you have the stock heatsink, it is pertinent that you get a better heatsink for overclocking.

CM Hyper 212+ is always a good value and will perform way better than the stock heatsink.
