Overclocking 1090t

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have been using 1090t at 3.8GHz and 2.8GHz for CPU/NB. Load voltage in normal gaming use is 1.42V. Now I am prime testing 3.9GHz and in normal use like BC2 that needs average 1.45V and peaks at 1.46V. When all of the cores are stressed I think it needs 1.46V. This 3.9 overclock was stable when playing bad company 2 for 3+ hours.

Im really not sure if that 3.9GHz is worth it with that voltage. I have also settings for 3990MHz/2850 and it felt surprisingly stable. Normally I get Bluscreen when testing new settings in BC2 but this setting lasted good in BC2 and only crashed to the desktop. Im not using much more voltage in this setting than in the 3.9 Overclock. But I feel it might need 1.48V for normal gaming use and Im not very comfortable with it.

Im running prime large test running approximitely 14h at 3.9GHz and my max temp is in CPU is 54C and in cores 46C. I have tryied to keep CPU temp under 55C. Voltage is almost all the time 1.476V very random drops to 1.46V.

I would be very pleased with that 3990/2850 setting but im not sure if I want to give 1.476-1.48v or more to my CPU.

I have feeling that my chip aint the best one when it comes to overclocking but Im not quite sure about my temps.

Do you think I could achieve 3900/4000 overclocks with less voltage if I replace my CPU cooling with something like Thermalright silver arrow?

I have read that some say that you dont need more than 1.4-1.43V for 4GHz are they talking about bios settings or load voltages?

I have gtx 560ti overclocked with 1.112V if it break will other components break too?

Keep it at 3.8 GHz.
You probably won't notice the difference.

First I would put everything on your computer back to stock speeds. Work on your CPU and NB first. Once you get everything stable then move on to your memory (if you want or can) and graphics card. That away you will know for sure what is causing what. I am overclocked to 4.0 with about 1.42 volts (maybe 1.45) and that is on all six cores. If you really want to hit 4.2 and if your bios allows it disable two of the cores. This will allow your CPU to run a little cooler with higher voltage. Of course don't go past 1.55 Once you get to a speed you would like to achieve load test it with Prime95 for a few hours and see if it stays stable and take note of your highest temp. Also don't forget cpus can vary from each other as well and depends what your mobo is capable of.

M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 is a great MB for the Six-core CPUs provided that you have the latest bios. Make sure of this.

Changing the cooling solution won't net you lower voltage numbers. Better temps, yes...

You can try backing down hyperthreading speed, as this usually helps in the core overclocking process. Also, i've always found that overclocking the NB has led to me having to add a little voltage to the CPU as well. Just something to think about.

Looking at your PSU i'm a little concerned. The X6 1090t will use close to 450W overclocked to 4.0 - 4.1 so that doesn't leave much juice left for other components.

Good catch on the PSU. I missed that part and this could very well be his problem.

This is what I probably end up doing. 100MHz doesn`t make much difference to performance. But still I am tempted to use 3900MHz or try the 3990/2850settings.

My current CPU overclock is stable and memory is quite fast at stock. I have thought this core disabling thing. Do you think I could use less voltage with four cores?

I dont have the newest bios and I am not sure if want to try changing it. I have 1601 and if I look from the Asus website the newer ones dont have stability improvements. Do you think bios change would still help overclocking?

If my GPU:s power supply fails will other components in my computer break or just the card?

Yes it might be possible, disable two cores leave the voltage and bump the multiplier up a little at a time and do prime again see if it stays stable and cool. If your bios doesn't have the option to turn off the cores you can go to msconfig and go to boot and disable two cores from booting up with windows. That MAY work. Never thought about trying it that way until now. lol.

Go to Start > Run > msconfig > Boot tab > Advanced options > Number of Processors

I'm at 4.2ghz / 2800mhz with CPU voltage at 1.53125. With a Silver Arrow you should be able to attain these results easily.

You are correct sir, I have done the same thing. Just running 4.0 for some reason. GREAT, thanks a lot! Now I have to go back home and put it back to 4.2.

You want to keep "Core Temp" under 62C (Max) and 60C for extended periods, so that's where you want to apply your 55C and NOT "CPU Temp", which is typically 7-10C off under load anyways. See my guide for more information. So having said that you've got quite a bit of room to go if your only hitting 46C
