I really want to know How Can i OC my 3.3Ghz since im Using MSI 760GM - P21
I already Unlock it. and this is What i my temperature is:
My Core 0,1,2,3 temp in Max Is 83'c
the other temperature goes this:
TMPIN0 MAX 49'c
TMPIN1 MAX 54'C
TMPIN2 MAX 48'C
My VCore is 1.42max.
I've Already OC it From 3.3 to 3.5 because my MSI board have OC genie it automatically OC my proc in stable and recomoded Ghz if it turns on.
I already turn Off Cool n Quite.
I only have my Stock Cpu Cooler.
please help me to OC it and to stabilized it..
and what is my real temperature since 'ive got 83'c??\
Please Reply,,, It would a big help for me.. thank you.
Gonna Post The pics Soon..
I'll post here instead of replying to your PM, so others may see this as well. PunkX 1, if you find this post useful, you can include it at OP as well.
If you want to overclock it yourself, I suggest turning off that auto OC from your motherboard. You also have to get a better cooler than stock, or else you can only go up to 3.6-3.8ghz.I'm not responsible for any damage that occurs during overclocking and you will take the risk of any fried or damage components by choosing to overclock manually and by following the steps below:
Steps to do:
1) Turn off OC genie.
2) Turn on unlocking option
3) Boot up with unlocked cores, but not overclocked and using Prime95 or Intel Burn Test or LinX to test stability for a few hours. If you pass for 1-3 hours you should be good.
4A) If not stable, go to BIOS to turn off each core one at a time, test it again in Prime95, IBT, or LinX and see if is stable. This lets you know which core is faulty if you shut it off and you became stable.
4B) If you can't get it to be stable at all, the unlocking of your L3 cache might be unstable, so this means you cannot unlock at all. Athlons have disabled L3 cache, because they were unstable from production, so if you have one with an unstable L3 cache, you're out of luck for unlocking, as you cannot get any unlock stable with an unstable L3 cache.
4C) If you were stable for any of the above, you can proceed to increase your CPU multiplier and then test in Prime95, LinX, IBT for each increase until you hit instability.
5) Once you've found your max overclock, you can proceed to increase voltage and then find your next max overclock. Repeat this until you reach your desired OC goal or max temps (58-61C)
6) Then once you're stable to where you like your CPU overclock to be, I suggest overclocking your CPU-NB, which controls your L3 cache and also your CPU's IMC (integrated memory controller), this is not necessary, but I suggest overclocking this to 2400mhz~2800mhz which may have to use (1.25v~1.4v for CPU-NB voltage).
7) If you do overclock your CPU-NB frequency, make sure you leave your HT Link Speed to 2000mhz.
8) You can also choose to overclock your RAM after the other two have been stable, but it brings zero benefit for most applications. You'll have to read up on this yourself as OCIng RAM is not an easy thing to do. You'll have to change the FSB speed and almost ALL of your multipliers and I don't really feel like explaining all that.
With my unlocked B55, I lost the ability to read my core temps (stuck at 0C) and I only read off the TMPIN temps:
TMPIN0: CPU socket temps - this is core temps + 3C from my experience, but could be different for others
TMPIN1: Northbridge or VRM temp - each motherboard has different AUX temp probes, so it is usually either of these two
TMPIN2: Motherboard or system temp
As stated on my sale thread, my load temps were around 40-45C with gaming and Prime95. This was with a H50 and later on my current watercooling loop. With a stock cooler, I had to reduce my overclock to 3.8ghz with stock voltage, which was 1.4v for me, load temps were about 57-60C, gaming temps were about 50-55C. Something to note is that I did have a Phenom II x2 555, which had a max temp of 70C, so other CPUs only have a max temp of 61C.
**I don't suggest increasing voltage so much for your board though, since it's a very low-budget board that will easily fry. Stay within stock volts or up to 1.45V max and same for your CPU-NB voltage, keep it between 1.2v-1.3v max***
If I missed anything, please do add to my post as it's hard to cramp 2+ years of learning into a single post.
Good luck and please give a +rep button below this post if you found it helpful!
