Amatuer Overclocker with a 1055t

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I have recently done away with my server and used the best bits of my PC and the server to build a "new" PC. Specs are as follows -

Gigabyte 890FX-UD5 (Rev2.0, BIOS F5)
Phenom 1055t (was a 965BE)
Noctua NH-U9B SE2
12GB Geil DDR3 1333MHz - 3x4GB as I can't use the fourth stick due to the heatsink (Was 2x2GB Kingston HyperX 1600MHz)
Corsair HX650W PSU (52A on the 12v rail)(Was a ThermalTake Evo Blue 650W with 48A on the 12V Rail)
Lian Li PC-A70F Case (was a POS Aerocool VX9 Pro LE)

Now, so far I have raised the FSB to 250MHz to give me 3.5GHz and lowered the RAM divider to 5.33 to give me 1332MHz on the RAM, and left the voltage at stock. I have run through Prime95 on the "In Place Large FFTs" for half an hour - no errors and max temp was 37c. Then ran the Small FFTs test for half an hour - this gave me a max of 43c with no errors. Then ran 3DMark vantage 3 times (with PPU disabled), then played Battlefield 3 online for around an hour and a half. So far no instability at all, and temperatures are not breaking the 44c mark.

Now, I wouldn't mind trying to go higher, but is my RAM going to limit me? I'm aiming for 3.8GHz, but really don't know if I can hit that or not.
I had been reading the the 1055t will sit on 3.7GHz with stock voltage - at what point would the voltage need to be raised?

I realise that at stock, the 1055t seems to be a downgrade, but from what I have been reading, (and my experience today) it seems to have great OCing ability - my 965BE was lucky to go 550MHz higher than stock, this has already gone 700MHz above stock with out any fuss.

Thanks for reading, and looking forward to the responses
(And yes, Turbo Boost, and Cool n Quiet have been disabled)

You can try rising the FSB for hit the 3.8GHz with RAM at stock but using 1.65V. The point for rise the voltage is when you see stability problems.
