Help Overclocking AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
So here I am, with a x4 955 BE, with the recently bought Cooler master hyper 212+, and ready to overclock it

One thing, I'm a total greenhorn in the overclocking area
BTW the gaming rig is the one in the description, Ive built it myself, no complaints till now actually, and it was my first one....

So in the bios i chose manual overclocking (uefi bios) and bumped from 200 MHz to 205 MHz.....and im running prime95 right now with these temps

Motherboard - 32ºC
CPU - 50ºC
Core 1 - 50ºC
Core 2 - 50ºC
Core 3 - 50ºC
Core 4 - 50ºC
Hard drive - 20ºC

I don't know how good this temps are.....

So, you guys tell me

if you want to OC FSB wise you have to Down-clock your Ram / NB and HT link because OCing FSB wise rises those things up unless you want to oc them too.

955 is a black edition so you should maybe just try to OC with the multiplier you should be fine till 3.8Ghz with out touching the volts. and just try to keep it below 55c

Just realized that i should be messing with the multiplier instead of the FSB

OK, So i plan on getting 3.8-4.0 GHz with good temps
Got the multiplier to 17x and I'm going to run prime95 now....

well can't tell you how your cpu is all you can do try and see if it pass. all i can tell you is 62c is max temps but should try not to go over 55c while prime and 1.55v is max unless you can keep it cool

Mines goes up to 3.8 with stock volts, then 4.0 @ 1.5v and 4.3 @ 1.6v
