Results from overclocking A6-3650 + MSI A75MA-G55

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Copy and pasted from my original post @ AT:

I think my board is maxed out at 161 HTT. What I've discovered so far is that I'm able to hit 3.7GHz using the iGPU (I'll have to keep playing around to see if I can hit higher) and 4.18GHz using discrete video. I'm very surprised at how little power the A6-3650 sips at idle. It is idling at 46w per my Kill-a-watt meter (64GB M4 SSD, Geforce 210GT, and Antec Neo 520c PSU) and while running Cinebench it tops at 109w. Gaming uses around 80w of power consumption (Using integrated graphics). I'm really happy with this purchase. Anyway, here are my results of tinkering:

Stock:




4.18GHZ:








I'd say a 1.5GHz overclock is damn fun on a budget. i3-2100, you are no match for the Llanos once overclocked. And power consumption is really respectable as well. I'm really thinking about selling my i3-2100 + mobo to get another A6-3650 combo because it barely uses more power but has a better iGPU. If you have a Frys near you, jump on the A6-3650 + MSI A75MA-G55 deal.

anyone else have a llano overclocked?
post #4 of 34
did you check to make sure the VRM heatsink is making good contact, sometimes on the G55 the heatsink needs a few washers to make good contact with the VRMs

maybe something that would let you push clocks even higher?

I have a 3850. I left it at stock speeds but undervolted it. Stable at 1.188 volts

Here is mine - picked up from Fry's this afternoon.

A6-3650 @ 4.168Ghz on IGP

I am stunned at the WEI numbers . My 2600K @4.5Ghz gives me a WEI of 7.8 but costs about $225 more

A6-3650 @4.5 160X26 a quick reinstall of CPUZ took care of the validation fail issue.

Stability testing in progress!

For some reason CPUID validation fails - still trying to figure this out. Anyone else having issue with CPUZ validation - mine comes up as failed

Dude that's awesome on IGP. Maybe I should try a crazy high BCLK like you lol. Didn't know our boards could go that high.

If the CPU cores can realistically go that far then that's pretty damn good. I can see the GPU-less Athlon II x4 631 rising to become an option for several people once the Phenom IIs are phased out.

alright i just bought the system after reading this from you. i got the motherboard and apu for 149 at frys. 20 dollars rebate too.

anyways,

i also bought a hummer case, power supply GX series 650w, and ram cosair vegeance 1600mhz. 16gb. I havent get the the APU fan yet. Please tell me what FAN should i get so i can overclock like you.

I dont know anything about APU overclocking or anything overclocking really. I read about CPU core speed which can be increase by either increase Reference Freq o CPU multiplier, NorthBridge can also be calculated by Ref Freq multiply by NB multiplier, HyperTransport also equal to Ref Freq multiply by HyperTrans Multiplier, and Memory can increase to 1600 MHz according to my Cosair.

Please tell me how you set these number. And what software are you using? i am a total noob here. Please help. Thank you very much.
