AMD Phenom X4 9750 / MSI 785GTM-E45 overclock issues! unstable?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
have built my self a descent rig AMD Phenom X4 9750 / MSI 785GTM-E45 with 4gb ram and 2 sata harddrives. heres the cpuid validator link:
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2104283

I have overclocked to 2.6 stable (i think) and have ran prime 95 torture test and amd overdrive stress test and it holds up! BUT the problem is when I do a heavy game install or anything of the sort my ram maxes out on usage and my cpu wont really jump to 2.6 constant or anywhere near it just hangs a 1.3 I have no idea on why its doing this.Also I currently have a Corsair H50 modded to a H60 with an extra Fan and keeps temps at 35c idle to 54c under full torture test. Help Me Please! and heres my current oc settingsL these settings I do set at the bios i jsut dont know hot to get a bios screenshot.700428

You can forget about overclocking unless you want your mobo to blow up. Judging from the stock 1:3v vid this seems to be a 125w 9750. This is a low end motherboard using a faulty 3+1 vrm design. Even if you have the 95w 9750, this board is NOT for overclocking! You need to back it down and start looking for a new motherboard. If you're confused, see the link "about vrms and mosfets" in my sig.

I will agree with the part that the board is not meant for overclocking, had a 9850 and the same board and even overclocking to 2.55 Ghz would be unstable.

This. Xd saved me from potential VRM woes by suggesting against MSI. Majority of the 2010 released boards are coupled with design faults, so severe where i've seen 95W CPU's failing on boards rated @ 125W! To add insult to injury, MSI have started to pass on the same design faults to the current-generation lineup of lower end AM3+ Boards such as the 970A-G45 (First reported failure for that board, Check xd's sig). I highly suggest you pay heed to what he recommends.

^ There have been 3 reported failures of the 970A-G45 (heatsinked 4+1 phase) as of now actually.  This board in particular is also quite well known for failures (I'd argue even moreso the chance actually, since this is a lowly 3+1 phase board)

I'd still recommend going against MSI. They have become highly unreliable as of late, even with all their "Military grade components" bull*****. The GD70 has quite a few reported failures as well (again, check xd's sig), especially with an X6. To sum up, the board has a high failure rate with the X6 (come on MSI!!). What's your budget for the mobo?

The 890FXA-GD70 is particularly problem prone with the Phenom II x6 actually.... avoid it.

You may wish to consider the 990FXA-UD3 from Gigabyte, 990FX Extreme3 or Extreme4 from ASRock... even lower end boards like the M5A97, 970 Extreme4, 990XA-UD3, they're great.
