Never Overclocked Before...

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
I am running a AMD Phenom II x6 1090t on a M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 motherboard with a 700W Pro-Stream PSU. I am not sure how to go about Overclocking to be honest, currently I have a non-stock Heatsink and Thermal Compound (AS5) and my CPU at 100% load for 1 hour the temperature only got up to 44c.

Any help on Overclocking my CPU would be very much appreciated, seeing as how it will be my first time I want to make sure I do it right.

Now your CPU is BE (Black Edition) that means you have unlocked multiplier wich is calculated with FSB. Stock FSB is 200MHz with your stock 16X multiplier you got 3.2GHz. Now increase your multiplier to 18X and you will get 3.6GHz if you hit this value resend message, step by step i will help you to reach 4GHz with normal voltages.

the 1090T is a Black Edition Unlocked CPU. This means that you can overclock it. Go to the BIOS of your motherboard, look for the CPU Multiplier option, and adjust it to your needed Ghz. the formula is FBS x Multiplier = Clock speed

And check this for your max temps - > http://www.overclock.net/t/1134229/amd-cpus-max-temps

I am on my wifes laptop at the moment, on my computer I am in the bios, I have the CPU Ratio at 18 with the FSB speed at 200, DRAM frequency at 1333, now do I boot up to make sure it worked right?

Also what should I be running to insure that my CPU is stable? I have a program called OCCT, I figured 3dmark11 and see what the min-avg-max temps were throughout?

Use program called Prime95. Run Small FFTs for 1 hour (it's for 3.6GHz) when you reach 4GHz you will run Prime95 Small FFTs for 6~12Hours.

You don't need a black edition to overclock, but it does help. The reason why black edition is good is because you can just move the multiplier up or down and change the clock speed that way. It makes it a lot easier than having to overclock using the FSB.

To test the CPU/RAM, download Prime95. Most problems will arise within the first minute, if not, run for 10min. to see if its a little stable, then overclock more. It should last through at least 6-12hours after you are done overclocking. Use HWmonitor for temperatures.

3Dmark11 is a good benchmark, but it is NOT a stability test. It runs nowhere near long enough to be even close to being a stability test, nor does it display errors when the cpu is unstable.

I noticed while running OCCT that the temperatures would jump up really fast but then I could hear the fans kick up the speed and the temp would drop and mellow out, I was running OCCT's version of Prime95 for about 20 minutes and the temp stayed at 52-54c

Also, is there a way to manually increase the CPU Fan Speed?

Use a fan controller, or put a fan that uses a 4pin molex to the cpu cooler. Sometimes you can manually set the fan speed in the bios, instead of having it on auto. What cooler do you have, by the way? You have decent temps at stock speeds, but they could be better.

I have a Rocketfish™ Universal CPU Cooler.. It was within the budget at the time.

I read somewhere that there is an option, something to do with HT or something in the AI Tweaker in the bios that if disabled can really help reduce temps.
