Overclocking a Phenom II X6 1090T B.E to 4.2GHz - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
Temperature shouldn't be a issue, my current cooler is doing a very good job. Hold on sec, someone said the max voltage for the processor is 1.55V by going to 1.6V, wouldn't that blow it up or something/

i dont think anything more then 1.45v is recommended on air.

Add 10c to your temps and im not sure a hyper 212+ can properly cool a 4ghz+ thuban

Also 4 phase power + 125w processors = Boom

It's 1.55v, 1.6v on water. Going over 1.55v for a longer period of time will degrade your CPU.

I think i will stick with 3.8GHz with no voltage bump. Do you guy see any differences when you overclock?

Your VRMs have absolutely no cooling thanks to the 212+. This, and the lower phase count, can be causing power instability.

Add VRM cooling before overclocking - or don't overclock and use the stock cooler. This lower end D3 motherboard is designed for no overclocking/stock speed operation, i.e. used in iBuypower prebuilts.

You're not going to notice a few hundred Mhz difference. Keep it where it's at, save wear and tear on the chip and money on your electric bill...

You are using Auto voltage... NEVER use it... manually set your voltage to 1.475 and try 3.9

I can't, it just goes to 1.5V when i choose the lowest increase which is 0.25. 600MHz increase is ok but i would still love it to make it a 1GHz difference . Where the hell am i gonna get a VRM heatsink?
