1035t overclock issues. I'm dumbfounded.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well, after all this time reading up on overclocking, I thought I new something......apparently not. lol.
I just got in a 1035t from Newegg, put that sucker in my board and fired it up.

First thing, my Gigabyte bios sets everything at Auto...
I knew I'm really only going to be adjusting by FSB, and maybe slight voltages..so that was given(no unlocked multiplier)

I mess with it for 2 hours, and I could only get it up to 3.0 from 2.6, with fsb at 225 I think and voltages on auto, which are according to Gigabyte, 4.25(seems a little high). OK....

The Max vcore shown in HW is 1.50?!? And then the value never gets higher than 1.36, ok, but the Easytune 6 shows anywhere from 1.36 to 1.488...and CPU Id shows 1.36 most of the time.
All three never agree really, and even after I take the voltages off of auto, and move up to maybe 4.5 or 4.75, the voltages shown when running Prime never exceed 1.36.

I did however manage to get the thing to boot up at 3.3 but I cranked my RAM speed down to 4.xx, which was around 1060 mhz, so I'm betting part of my problem is cheap ram.....I'm gonna keep messing with it......

So I've only gotten to 3.2 at the highest, with RAM at its slowest, and on AUTO vcore, but not able to juice up from 1.36 at all when testing in Prime, according to HW and Easytune....and not stable for more than a few seconds.


EDIT: The temps are freakin awesome, this sucker hasn't gotten above 31C when running prime on the stable clocks in Core Temp.

Huh. Now i just set vcore back to auto, and got into windows at 3.2, but cranked my ram speeds down to like 980 mhz....??????????????????... at anything higher than that it would bsod.

its off. and i just tested this cpu on another system......cant seem to get it above 3.1 ghz either.

Wow, must be a really bad chip?
Being the likely lowest binned x6 I'd say so...
Might want to ensure the timings
Try it with 2 DIMMs; try it again with 4 DIMMs then, if it works better, on increased CPU-NB voltage

First of all, it's a 1035T because it ain't a 1090T or 1100T. The AMD chips I've played with in an inexpensive Mobo will typically get 22%-25% stable overclock and that's it. And, you better have a dang good cooler or water cool it.

The X4's go higher than the X6's too... I've spent days with them both... If everything was perfect, I would expect to get no higher than 3.25GHz. Period. That would be at 1.525 volts and temps better be under 50c (according to core temp) too.

I've got 3 screaming 140CFM 120x38mm fans pushing air into an RS-360 to cool a BOINC crunching machine as I write this and it's overclocked 25% and won't go an inch further and stay stable. And, it runs 47-49c 24/7.

So, if you set your CPU volts to 1.525, set the CPU-NB to 2400, HT to 2000, CPU-NB voltage to 1.40, HT voltage to 1.30... that should about do it. But also turn OFF Turbo Core and C1E and Cool & Quiet to sustain a max overclock. IF you want to allow it to idle down, leave Cool & Quiet enabled and don't overclock past 120% or 3.12GHz max.

Sounds to me like you've done what can be done with a 95W CPU... have no idea about the Gigabyte Mobo, all I know is I blew up an MSI overclocking a 955BE chip... now it runs in an Asus Mobo...

If you can hit 3.1 stable, I would call that VERY good...

Thanks guys, I can deal with it only getting up but so far in the OC. I was hoping I'd luck up, lol. Its going in my gf's rig who wouldn't care a bit if it was overclocked or not. I'm satisfied with the 3ghz that I'm at right now, and it will work more than fine for what she needs.

3.0GHz for your X6 is excellent 24/7 overclock.. especially if you leave cool&quiet enabled.

And, it is fast, just not as fast as the i7-995x... but it will do very well...

Seriously? I bought a Phenom X6 1035T ($130) from newegg too. I bought an open box ASRock 760GM-GS3 board too because I was being cheap ($35). I can boot up at 4GHz, but it seems to BSOD after 5 or 10 minutes, it will last 30 minutes if I disable 2 cores (core 2 and 3) with Active Core Control. I can run stable and play FFXIV stable at 3.8GHz at 1.425v. I have a cheap rosewill cooler that stands up from newegg also for like $17. It's better than the stock, so that may be helping me overclock higher. It also may be that your PSU is not supplying enough energy. The X6's will drain a crap load amount of wattage if you overclock it. Some power supplies may say 580watts, but can only continuously supply only half of that which would be 290watts. A good overclocked X6 1035t can easy steal 150watts on it's own. Oh, and make sure you peel the protective plastic off of a new heatsink unlike me!

Some tips to overclock the 1035T
  • Disable Spread Spectrum
  • Disable Turbo
  • Disable Cool and Quiet
  • Disable C-State/C1E
  • Upgrade your Cooling
  • Buy a 890FX or 990FX board with 8 phase power
  • Make sure RAM speed is within the RAM chips intended speed
