Overclocking issues

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I used to be able to overclock to 3.5 no problem just by pushing the FSB to 250. Then I pushed too far and had to reset my BIOS. Now I can't get it passed 235 without having to lower my RAM frequency to 1066 from 1333.

Did I break something?

Clear your cmos and start over.
Use this to help you with your overclock.

I already cleared my CMOS twice and I had the same issue. I had already watched that video when I first got my 1055t =D

I just don't understand why I can't get the FSB passed 235 with 1333MHz now but I could before.

Give yourself one + on your vcore. Then you should be fine. My 1055t only goes up to 3.4 stock voltage stable.

Tried that too I just keep getting a message saying "Too many cold resets" and the I get thrown into my BIOS setup.

I'm gonna try running memtest86+ and see if I my have broken RAM module.

Reset the bios and boot stock. Don't overclock anything. Do failsafe defaults. Shut down reboot and try to overclock then. Some times mine was stubborn like that.

I tried to redo the overclocking like you said. I reset the CMOS booted default values, ran my OS for like 5 minutes, rebooted and same situation.

Well the memory test didn't report any error messages, soooo was it a fluke when I was able to push my FSB so far?

I doubt it. How are you resetting your CMOS. Unplug the power chord from the power supply and take out the battery. Boot into OS then restart push the fsb a couple bumps. Not to 3.4 or 3.5. Say 2.9. Maybe 3.0. See if it will boot like that. If so you may have to work your way up. Also make sure you are running you ram at the correct recommended voltage. My old ram was 1.65 and defiant on my mobo is 1.5 so it wouldn't boot past 3.4 until I realized I had to bump that up. Despite how much vcore I would give it. Try that. I know it takes some time. But we have to start checking things of the trouble shooting list. OCN is great for that. Haha

Got it working like a charm I had to up my FSB by 5 and let my OS boot every time I raised it. Unfortunately it was unstable as hell once I got it to 250 and still had to lower my RAM speed. I had never tested stability before at 250 with the rest at default. Either way I got my OS booted right now at 3.8 GHZ with my vcore around 1.43.

Time to start prime!!!

Sounds great. Sometimes mobo's don't like it when you force an OC on them, they are like Hell no, give it to them in steps and they are a lot more willing. Glad to hear, what is your Ram Freq and timings at? may be time to tighten some timings!!

1.43 is good I have to have 1.47 to get 3.85 soo you may be able to push 4.0 with 1.47 it takes me like 1.52 :/ more than I am willing to do.
