First Time OverClocking - Need Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new gaming computer, and now want to try over clocking for the first time.. I have read the guides and think i have a good understand of what to do...
specs of computer : Saberthooth 990fx , 1090 t amd , corsair h80 , 8 gb vengeance ram

So i know that i have a unlocked multiplier and that would be the easy and right way to oc. MY question is when i up the multiplyer and dont want to up the vcore ... can i leave all the vcore settings to default witch is auto settings.

Because when i upped the multiplier and slowed ram down , i ran prime95 and the vcore was at 1.5+... so i just little advice . FYI - i did not touch any voltage setting they where set to default.

And if you wont to explain how to up the vcore that would be nice also so i can oc higher.

it does no talk about vcores?? or also does not talk about how to up your vcore =x

Things to disable if overclocking:

Cool & Quiet
C1E
Turbo Core Technology.

Your vcore for the CPU should be manually set and not set to "auto". You won't achieve anything by having that on auto. You will need to raise that voltage along with the multiplier to achieve any sort of overclock. 1.55v is the maximum safe voltage for your processor & 62C is the maximum safe temperature. Keep that in mind when overclocking and good luck! thumb.gif

Also things to note:

Keep your HyperTransport (HTT) speed as close to 2000MHz as possible.

Manually set ALL voltages if possible. (so you know you have the correct voltage on things, not "auto")

FSB + multiplier to achieve a set clock is also helpful in some cases when trying to stabilize overclocks instead of only changing the multiplier. Typically, these will have greater performance as well.


Otherwise.. there are plenty of guides out there that can further explain everything.

+1 good advice. I would add that you should look to increase your CPU-NB speed to around 2800-300MHz. Would probably need to increase CPU-NB volts to around 1.35 to achieve that. Also, I generally increase the CPU multiplier first along with volts. thenwhen unstable then I decrease back anotch and then increase FSB.

Others do the opposite (increase FSB) then teh Multipliers.

Thanks! And yes, increasing the CPU-NB is always a good idea as it gives a good increase in overall performance & can also help stability. 3000MHz should be around 1.3-1.35v. (Usually do this after obtaining a stable CPU overclock or to try to stabilize one)

I want to say though, not all motherboards will be able to get to 2800MHz-3000MHz despite what voltage you throw at them. Some of the lower end motherboards can barely even get to 2400MHz. (I had one that could only get 2400MHz, lol). However, his motherboard won't give him any troubles and should be able to get to 2800MHz-3000MHz pretty easily with those volts.
