AMD x6 1090T overclock

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Got a quick question, I have the 1090T and I want to crank her up to 3.8Ghz. I have an MSI mobo, the bios has an option to auto set voltages and other things. Is 1.4V okay for 3.8? Also do I have to change my FSB? currently its at 200. The only reason I am asking is because I was running BF3 when all of a sudden I BSOD when I was trying to run 3.8 before. I have Water cooling so I don't think heat is a problem.

Running CPU-z with it at 3.8 voltage bounces from 1.390 to 1.418. The HT link speed is also at auto on the bios and that's running at 2000. Thanks!

1.4 is more than ok for a Thuban. If you got a BSOD, bump up the voltage a tiny bit more and see if that helps.

Ok cool, do you recommend a voltage? I was thinking 1.425 or something, not to good with voltages.

I would just bump it the next step your motherboard allows, 1.425 would be great. I would then run a Prime95 blend test for at least 5-10 minutes to see if you get any BSOD's. Keep bumping this up, but if you still are unable to get stable at 1.475-1.5v, it most likely will be something else causing your BSOD's.

my thuban needs 1.475v for 4ghz. a little bit high but you can start from that. if you can get it stable then lower the voltage incremently

Hmm I ran prime95 and literally after 3 seconds I BSOD the same way I did before on BF3. So when I restarted my computer I went to go change the Voltages. The only problem is I realized that the areas that say "Auto" were grayed out. I cannot seem to touch the voltages. And none of the options in the cell-menu say anything about CPU Volts

There has to be some sort of menu option where you can manually adjust your settings. I am not familiar with the MSI overclocking/bios suite.

haha ok thanks, I figured it out. Was something retarded I did. I had set the voltages to 1.425 and ran prime95, after 10 mins it BSOD. Went back and set the V to 1.45 as the next one up was 1.56. Ran prime95 again after 10 mins no BSOD. I think 1.45 is the stable mark for 3.8. Thanks very much guys! +rep
