Can't seem to get out of power saving 800mHz

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Trying to overclock a Phenom II 555 BE C3 which has all four cores unlocked, on the system below. I have tried the AMD Overdrive software to do this and there is no temp reading ("0") on each core. (Can unlocking disable temp. sensor?) Also, cannot understand how to move the speed out of power saving mode at 800 mHz at 4X multiplier. Hints?

your using software to oc.

if you used the BIOS, turning off CNC will stop that

try running prime... does that bump up the speed?

Have you disabled cool 'n quiet in the BIOS?

Note that your motherboard has a High VRM fail rate and is not designed for overclocking. It's probably why it's downclocking, because the VRMs are getting too hot.

Yes, unlocking disables temps. Lock the cores and see how your "Core Temp" is under load. Then unlock them again.

Thanks. I disabled Cool n' Quiet in the BIOS and it now it runs at full speed currently getting 3.924 Ghz with 18X multiplier at 218 FSB and 1.3V. Temps are disabled in Core Temp and AMD Overdrive. Yet in the MSI Control Center under "Green Power" it shows CPU temp at 26C. Odd though that system temp hovers around 25C? I do not know how to raise the voltage of 1.3V though. Can't seem to find anywhere in BIOS to do it. Also, can't I run Prime with all four cores unlocked?

Idle temps are not accurate. Keep in mind that MSI is reading "CPU Temp" which is going to read 7-10C higher (typ) at load then the actual temp. You should do a comparison when the cores are locked so you known the actual offset. The actual temp at load being "Core Temp", which as you stated is disabled now. See my guide for more information.

Msi boards have no downclocking protection, this is something else.
