My oldest thats still in service is my Asus K8N Nforce 250 (8 years old to date, used daily) religated to media use since 2010, I happen to hold the Ref clock record on it over on HWBot.org, I just guess you and I have two vastly different approaches to OCing smile.gif

we OC alot alike with my 1090T cpu on this board I could do a ref clock of 345 and that ref clock of yours is very awsome

Went with asrock 990fx pro mother board will be here tomorrow. Just got a couple questions on what I should be doing 1st when I get the new board besides setting everything back up lol

I turn off turbo and basically all the normal stuff cool and quite, etc.

What is the max voltages you can push to the Cpu. Last time I had 1.47 volts and was at 4.8 stable

Max volts for Cpu/nb? This I didn't mess with last time just wondering if I do need to add more volts to stabilize the overclock

Nb volts: not gonna touch this learned my lesson the last time lol

I'm trying to be proactive and get at much info as I can before tomorrow when I setup everything.

I usually would do some small tweaks until I got to the speed I wanted. Change multiplier and make small changes to volts boot it up and run stress test. If failed go back and tweak volts slowly until I pass stress tests.

Just want to make sure I'm not doing something wrong and what to change if overclock is not stable.

I know this is alot of questions but I won't fry this new mother board lol

Most people say cpu-v safe limit is 1.5v.

Your cpu-nb should be able to handle the same voltage as the cpu but there really isn't a reason to go over 1.35v.

Never needed to raise nb-v.....but 1.3v is safe.

If you run a high fsb (htt link), you might need to bump nb-ht voltage to 1.3v.

Good luck.

@ Willup:

I actually run stock speed with a large undervolt most of the time, but here is what the UEFI looks like

@ Trucker:

321 is the highest my M4N98TD EVO would go.

Thanks for the info its funny when My Mobo fried My NB volts were only 1.18 Volts. CPU was only 1.4750 Volts. Tested PSU its not that I know the Mobo is fried but I still wonder if it could be something else? Only reason I say that is because 1.18volts doesn't seem high for Northbridge could be high for my motherboard in general. Everything was working completely fine before I upped the NB volts. There is still that fear I fried my CPU or RAM, or even videocard

Now I just put it through a couple of minutes stress test prime95 and using hwmonitor to see what the temps are. Now I am already getting 49 celcius on the cpu temp scale. This is quite high for a stock clocked fx4100 correct? I was going to overclock it as far as I could on stock voltage. Or maybe a tad more voltage. But should I already get this out of my head with these temperatures? I mean 60 degrees is the point of hurting the cpu isn't it?

Temps are too high. Make sure all your mating surfaces are good and clean before applying Thermal Paste. Also, the H70's are hard to get seated properly, tripple check to make sure it's sititng flat on the CPU.

Haha thanks. I still want to get to 5ghz one day. Hopefully I can actually do it. If I get stable at 4.8ghz again I think I might call it quits

You will need some really good cooling to get 5ghz, as well as a pretty good chip.

You could also aim for 4400/4800 Turbo.

Got Ek H30 360 rad cooling kit right now. Even with it at 4.8ghz it never broke 45 degrees Celsius. Its one of the main reasons I don't think I fried my cpu.

Oh, carry on then smile.gif

5ghz will take more voltage then you want to use though.
