4 GHz and the 1090T?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I would like to know who all have got their rig up to 4GHz and what they used, how they managed to pump it up, and how hard it was to get there.



Wish I could say I have got my 1090T up there, but sadly, I think I went overboard on my RAM with PC3 1600. Also, being fairly new to the game, I just don't know which route to go. Bump up FSB, move the multiplier, what to do . getting input from the people that have been there will not only help me, but others trying to achieve the same goal. so, lets see what everyone's got. Details of my build are:

Case: NZXT Guardian 921RB

PSU: Antec True-power new 650Watt

Motherboard: Asus M4A87TD-EVO

CPU: AMD PhenomII 1090T 3.2GHz

CPU Cooler: Antec Kuhler H2O 920

RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tracer Blue PC3 1600 (12800MHz)

Drives: WD Caviar Black 750GB SATA 6.0GB/s

mines 4Ghz stable but its black edition so not a real feat on my part, bumped the multiplier to 20 and Vcore to 1.5



I 3dmark11 and prime 95d for a few hours and never had any issues, BF3 doesnt crash it after many hours



im running identical cooling for it as you as well except my 920 is modded so 1 fan and the radiator are outside of the case and 1 fan is inside, to keep the radiator from sitting in warm air, also running the same PSU, is it just not stable or are your temps high??

Sorry for not responding sooner, between issues with my board (had to RMA, northbridge died) and OCN not sending me a notice, I just now got the message.

Currently I am holding out on CPU overclock due to the previous board giving me trouble. don't want to go through that again, not that it was a bad experiance, just don't have a spare computer to fall back on tongue.gif In hide-sight, the only problem I had was I was trying to OC mine with the CPU load-line Calibration off, and with this motherboard, it is very much needed due to VDroop. It was holding pretty strong at 3.85GHz, (can't remember the Freq and multiplier combo, think it was 213x18). I'll post when I try again, let ya know my results.
