Trying to OC my AMD Phenom II 1075T but cant even get past stock 3.3GHz

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone I have been to this site many times and finally become a member. I am here once again today to get some insight on my goal, to OC my CPU to 4.0GHz. I have a stock fan so I will not be doing that at the moment, for now I just want to OC to 3.5-3.7GHz. The problem is I cant even reach 3.3GHz which is the automatic boost the CPU gets when it has a high load, I get a message that says I cant boot due to overclocking. The highest GHz I can reach is 3.0GHz.

Whats in my PC:

Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H (rev. 1.4)
CPU: AMD Phenom II 1075T
Fan: Stock
Ram: Patriot 1600EL Series


PS: If you need any more info (I know you will) just ask and please specify clearly. Also thank you for your time and help.thumb.gif

Try something like this for around 3.5ghz (3.48ghz):

HTT/Reference Clock/FSB/whatever: 240
CPU Multiplier: 14.5
Memory multiplier: on the 1333mhz divider so the RAM actually runs at 1600mhz
HT Link multiplier: x9
NB multiplier: x10

Make sure RAM is set to the rated timings and voltage of the kit. For voltages something like:
CPU voltage: 1.3vish? I would guess
CPU-NB voltage: 1.25v
everything else auto except DRAM voltage to the rated

Lastly when you get a chance you can fill out your whole system specs and have it display in your signature somehow. I think it's under rigbuilder but I'm not familiar with the new site :S

This motherboard uses a low end VRM system with its problems and it's really not meant for pushing x6 processors to the max.... just so you know

though the fact that you're on the stock fan is good as the VRMs get some necessary cooling.  Though the real problem is in the transistors and amperage rating...

Do you have a location on where I can find these spics, there are a lot of places where little to a lot of info may be located. Also I will try your info out and see what happens.

I understand you point. Furthermore I would think getting at lease 3.3GHz which it can do on its own would be alright. The question is can I do it without damaging my PC?

Gigabyte and Asus boards have VRM failure protection, so you should be fine if ever you do hit the temperature of the VRM.
Usually, 3.3GHz will be fine on that board, without doing damage assuming you have proper power and cooling smile.gif

Ok, I found out the problem. I needed to leave the Turbo Boost on. I though since I was manually doing it I needed to turn it off. I was really trying to boot at 5.6GHz. If I leave on the Turbo Boost though it will use all 6 Cores not the thing where it just uses 3 Cores at a high GHz? If it does do that how can I turn it off because I think that is stupid.

I think only the newest GIGABYTE boards have adopted VRM protection.  I don't believe boards using this older VRM design and related are equipped with such at all.

The OP's board is based off Gigabyte's old crummy VRM
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3635#ov

Although even that has some form of protection, if it heats up too fast, it'll still burn up. (Much like some MSI boards with weak VRMs)

Thanks for the info. I plan on getting the FX 8 Core CPU with an ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX soon. I'm sure I can get 5.0GHz on that with some good cooling.
