Finally decided to try overclocking.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Motherboard is in Sig - Gigabyte 880gm-usb3

Ive looked at a few guides on overclocking but the names of things in my bios aren't what i've read in the guides. listing here in hopes of narrowing down what they are exactly.

Cpu clock ratio (currently at 3300mhz)
cpu NorthBridge Freq (currently at 2000mhz)
cpu Host Control Clock (currently at 200)
HT Link Width ( Set at auto)
HT Link Freq (currently set at 2000)
Set Memory Clock (currently at x6.66 - 1333mhz.)

The memory clock is obvious, the others im not entirely sure of. I did up my host control clock by to 210 and it raised the cpu clock ration to 3465, the northbridge freq to 2100 and the HT link freq to 2100.

I guess im just a bit lost and worried about bricking things.
Also looking for info on how far I can likely go with both this motherboard and stock cpu cooling (the case doesn't have room for a large aftermaket cooler).

Everything is currently set to [Auto] in the bios under the M.I.T Intelligent Motherboard Tweaker Menu, which is where i found these settings.

Not looking for a crazy overclock, just wouldn't mind bumping it up a bit for 24/7 use.

What is the rated speed of your memory? This can make a huge difference when overclocking the 1055T. Always have minimum DDR3-1600 RAM. Most DDR3-1333 CL9 doesn't OC and this can and will hold back reference clock based OCs on the Phenom II platform.

Are you using the stock cooler or an aftermarket cooler? Bear in mind that an aftermarket tower cooler of sorts removes VRM cooling, this can cause overheat on the limited 4+1 phase and unsafe operation. You may require additional VRM cooling in order to handle the load.

Raising the bus clock means you are on the right track. You will want to use the "target bus clock" type OC. That means raising the bus clock (the base clock that everything runs off using multipliers) while lowering the multiplier of CPU and everything else to keep them at stock or below stock, until you reach the target bus clock. For example, a bus clock of 250 will allow you to run up to 250x14 for 3500Mhz operation - a 700Mhz overclock. Choose a bus clock that will allow you to run your RAM at rated speed. At 250Mhz, you can run the x5.33 multiplier to run RAM at exactly 1333Mhz. If you know what you are doing, you can try to OC the RAM by raising the bus clock further, using HyperPi at 32M setting to test the RAM only along the way. When you are done with the bus clock raise, raise the CPU multiplier and stability test with IntelBurnTest (10-20 passes high) along the way. Then, raise the NB clock to allow for extra bandwidth, back up to the x10 multiplier for 2500Mhz operation; raise the CPU-NB if you need to. Test in between with Prime95 (IBT is ineffective for testing NB), for 3 hours. Since you will only need to raise the NB multiplier twice from 2000Mhz back to 2500Mhz, you will not need to spend as much time on Prime95. Leave the HyperTransport clock at 2000Mhz, +/- 200Mhz, for the best stability. Raising this does not increase performance.

If you ever run into instability - as in, the type of instability that prevents your computer from POSTing at all - do a CMOS reset. Search OCN or google to know that this is, and refer to the motherboard manual to find out how on your specific motherboard.
