AMD Phenom 2 1100T x6 Overclock how to? Newbie here

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi Friends,

I used to own a 6 year old Athlon64x2 @2Ghz with a 2gb ddr2 800mhz stick and a radeon 4890 1gb card with a 450watt standard PSU and an ugly/rusted, open on both sides and partially broken case (case was about 8year olds) with a 500GB WD Green HDD and a 22inch LCD from viewsonic. I used to use the open drive cages of my case to store ciggrattes and some cash lol

Anyways, i still have my old system in my basement and she still works.

I just spent about 3700 dollars worth on May-2011 (4months old) and bought a new rig since my old amd was starting to get low on fps on the new titles (although playable with AA OFF and some on/off/low/medium in settings)

I'm usually a single player dude and I have the habit of re-playing the same games with more difficulty and/or harder ro-Bots.. Till the game is so tough i have to quit and move on.

For this reason i thought I'll invest in a hexacore CPU as i need more bots and need more intelligence in them.

Anyways my system specs are in my signature.. All the best I could fit in my 3500dollar budget but still it went up more approx 200 dollars.

I don't know how to over-clock or what are the settings i have to do my processor is definetly over-clockable as its the black edition and i have a 800gram dual 120MM fan air-cooler over it so cooling is not issue.

According to the specs of my processor. It runs at 3300 and turbo boost 3700
So i know at stock the processor can do 3700 so why not take it to 4GHZ

Any help would be appreciated .. Thanks

Nick

Dude.. a $3500 dollar budget and you went with that? The rig looks solid, but I would have seriously waited for BullDozer or at least went with Sandy Bridge.. :/

As for unlocking I think you need the core unlocker and a modded BIOs to do that. I could be wrong, and if I am, I apologize but at least it'll give you a start!

No need for an unlocker. There are no locked cores, and it's a BE, so it's an unlocked multi.
THIS IS NOT A BUILD SUGGESTION THREAD.

Basically all you need to do is start bumping up your multi in your BIOS settings. I didn't need to really touch my vcore until I got to 3.8 I think. For 4.0 I'm using 1.450v.

The first few links almost described my old build (before this) Athlon64 x2 @ 3GHz, 2x2gb 800MHz DDR2, HD4890 1GB, 450w standard PSU.. but a nice plasticy case xD

And.. 1100T is like the 1090T right.. Just a higher base clock.. thats.. easily.. achieveable

You should be able to reach 4GHz just on the multi without any significant vcore rises. I can get a 4GHz clock and post @ 1.3v, but its not that stable, stability comes in a 1.35-1.375v for me. You should be able to push your clocks with nearly no effort.
But, first things first, turn off the Turbo boost feature, its good.. But it boosts the vcore rapidly.. for me, It was boosting to 1.4v for 3.6GHz turbo.

If you want to start going past 4GHz you're going have to do it in incriments, bit by bit. Up the FSB by 1MHz until it doesn't post, then inc the vcore slightly so it does. Stay there for a bit, run some stability tests.
If safe and stable, proceed the increments.. Try to keep under 1.45 vcore and you'll be fine. If you're struggling with the FSB try the multi. or dropping the multi on your RAM.

A good case of rinse and repeat to find what works best for you. I'm keeping 4GHz at the moment with idles around 30C (4.057GHz (213.5 FSB x 19 Multi))


Just noticed we have the same Tower and GPU xD but you've definately got the meatier PSU.. But you really don't need that much.
Although, I haven't the money to crossfire, nor the money for an SSD =[

hi dustin1 and insyxion,

lol, i dont know what is the bulldozer.
about the sandy bridge.. actually i went for amd because i have spent a decade with their processors before that i owned a intel 486dx2 66mhz lol, i am attached to amd processors for emotional reason thats why i got phenom instead of a i7 gx x8 which would have anyways costed a full 1200 dollars just for the octacore cpu

about waiting for something new in the market to come up, in the computer world every 6months or year theres a faster or newer stuff... so theres no point for me to wait for years, as i see it what i see now is way way way way more better than what i have been using for six years - athlon64x2 2ghz n stuff.

hi esocid,

your right i dont need to unlock anything as all cores are factory unlocked i mean six cores theres no more cores than these for now from amd.

hi shadowew,

thanks for all the headsup.. will give it a shot and see. actually performance wise the stock settings are already pretty fast to crunch anything... but its always nice if the system could be running at the fastest/best as possible.

you seem to have the almost similar subsystem as me, except the mobo on mine is 8 series. the 1090 and 1100 are nothing but a 100mhz difference at stock speed.

you need a ssd more than a crossfire. i have tested my system all at stock speeds with just one 6950 1gb ... average fps for 1080p games are all pretty decent with 30-40fps+ on one card with the phenom2

with a second 6950 u should expect around 90 to a 120 percent boost in fps. but then again the monitors usually sport 60 to 75 refresh rate, so if the games are not v-sync its just a waste of power, unwanted fps and extra electricity bill for what your monitor probably cant display.

my fps on a popular games like dirt2 and dirt3 are minimum 40 , average 60 and max 120 fps with the v-sync off and crossfire. i usually keep my v-sync on as i need between 40 to 60 fps consistent.

thank you friends for your post,
nick

I like mine at 3.7 because Cool'n'Quiet stays on (777mhz @ idle instead of balls out 3.8+ Ghz at all times)

You can do it with just raising the multiplier to 18.5, without having to do anything else.

man, 3 grand, and you went AMD? I had a 700 budget for the rig in my sig [hehe that rhymes...] but if i had about 300 more, i would have gone for a 2500k. You could have easily went for the 2600k. And AMD has the TurboV software that makes it easy to overclock your proc. It should have come on a disk with some drivers.

Hi Stratplayer,

Before purchasing i did spend a month doing all kind of research for what i needed for my "rig" , after dozens of youtube reviews, tech-site reviews and also considering how much each component would cost me here on my side in India.

I did'nt just need a processor, i also needed a larger monitor, two gpu's instead of one. in crossfire or in sli and also some investment where i never look into but very important investments like a proper spacious sturdy case (my area is full of dust and to me dust is a big problem), aftermarket proper cooler(its 35celcius just the room temprature in my city), the best PSU, in 6 years i may have blown my standard PSU about once every 3months, then i go to the junk market and buy a second hand new PSU for $1 (hehe they buy PC parts in kilos and fix them to re-sell again dirt cheap)

I also needed to put my investment into a back-lit keyboard as i have trouble typing on a black keyboard in the dark, i also needed a tv-tuner usb for watching business news n stuff. i put investment in buying the best sounding 2.1 pc speakers from Bose

I put more investment in a SSD for OS and business software (because theres no moving parts its more likely my OS wont get corrupt or i dont lose important business files and programs) and have the downloads and games on a sata3 2TB seagate hdd.

Let me just do a slight rundown just considering the cost of a amd flagship processor with motherboard and a intel i7 2600k 3.4ghz with motherboard.

amd 1100t 3.3ghz + amd 8 series motherboard = $455
intel i7 2600k 3.4ghz + intel z68 series motherboard = $864

round figure $450 for a amd flagship and round figure $850 for a intel flagship.
And the difference I would get in performance between both is not substantial but marginal maybe 10-15% more with intel, for a cost double of that from AMD

Instead i could load that extra $400 and buy the second GPU for my crossfire configuration which probably would give my games a 90-120% boost in fps instead of the 10-15% boost just for using intel and a single 6950 card.

Also about the GPU cards, i have specifically chosen sapphire 6950 1gb models to crossfire, because this specific model has the open shroud with the fan in the middle which is much cooler, so i could clean the dust without having to break the warranty by opening the card. Most of the closed shroud GPU's cannot clean the dust without actually dismantling/opening them.

BTW, i did just overclock to 4009MHZ ... by increasing FSB to 211mhz and clock-multiplier by x19, havent fiddled with the volt's though... just testing some games now and play for four or five hours to see if its stable
