Beginner in need of Overclocking help!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, I've had the Phenom II 1100T for some months now and decided to overclock it. But for some reason I can't find a way to keep it stable .. Whenever I test it in Prime95 I either crash, blue screen or get an error.. I can't find the right voltage settings and the rest..

Everything but the cpu voltage (which is now at 1.325) and the multiplier is set to auto settings and everything I've tried so far hasn't made it run stable for at least an hour in Prime95...

Could any of you help me solve this problem? I really don't wanna buy a new cpu and or a new cooler.. As of now I've heard the cooler I have should be able to keep it stable at 4Ghz... Am I wrong?



Case: Cooler Master HAF X Big Tower

Motherboard: ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3, Socket-AM3

Power Supply: Chieftec Nitro Series BPS-850C 850W

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar® Black 1TB 7200RPM

Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon 6970 2GB
Clock Speed: 900MHz
Memory Clock: 1380MHz

Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition
Clock Speed: 4GHz
Cooler: Noctua NH-C14

Memory: Modded Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1333MHz 8GB CL9 (2 x 4GB)

what voltage were you running when you were trying to hit 4ghz the thubians need +1.4-1.5v to get 4ghz completely stable most of the time

also have a look through this AMD overclocking guide it may give you some help

I tried running all the way from 1.40 to 1.45 and the temps went up of course but they want to 70-80c when running Prime95 with it then.. Eventually it blue screen'd

have you adjusted any other settings at all ie NB/memory ect ect also have a look at the guide in my first post

as for your temps those seem pretty high for that cooler it looks like it should handle 1.4v pretty well hows your case air flow?

Thanks, I am looking through the link you sent but the case airflow is pretty good. Got 4 fans in total and they do a good job keeping it cool inside the case. As for NB/memory and those settings, they're untouched. Only kept ram speed at 1333 but thats all.

I would kick that memory speed up to 1600mhz that may help out a bit i had some 1333 ram with my athlon x3 and it killed the OC although it was tied to the fsb tho

I'd love too. But I had to remove the heatspread and ever since I did that I have always had an error in Prime95 while running them at 1600. I don't know whether or not removing them caused it (seems like it) but I had no choice in order to make the cpu cooler fit in.

For 4 GHz you will need at least 1.45 volts, mine requires 1.4875 volts. Keep your RAM where it is until you can get the CPU stable.

Your cooler must not be seated properly or you put too much/little thermal paste on it. Those temps are way beyond what you should be getting. What program are you using to get these temp readings?

For the time being I'm using Coretemp to check it and Prime95 to stress it. And you really think that would be the cause? Youls I try re-seating my cpu cooler and put a little more/less thermal paste on it? And how much should I put on?
