starting to overclock 1055t and hitting some problems

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, my first issue is that I'm sitting at 3.5 ghz right now in prime 95 and my temps are reading 62c. Which I thought was strange given the cooler and that it's only at 3.5 ghz. May be my fault though because when I was installing hte cooler some of the compound got onto my hand and rubbed off the CPU.

My second issue is that I'm having difficulties going over the 3.5 GHz mark. With stock voltages I got 3.4 stable, but even after changing a few settings in the bios I'm not really making any progress. Once I get a pen and paper I'll write down the exact changes I've made in the bios, for now I'll attach a few screenshots of settings.

For now I'm going to bump it down to 3.3 Ghz again and get some more arctic silver and hope for the best soon. But I figured I'd grab some tips in the mean time.

Also I should mention my CPU cooler is the hyper 212+

Those are INSANE volts for just 3.5Ghz eek.gif

Is the CPU vcore set to auto in the BIOS, as is the RAM? It's pretty obvious you would hit 62c with a voltage of 1.58 using just a Hyper 212+. 62 is the threshold and you should go lower to be on the safe side. Post back with the BIOS settings.

Holy bananas. Those are some insane volts. my guess is the volts are on auto. manually adjust the volts and you're temperature will plummet all the while having a more stable OC. Also, if you havent done so, put a 2nd fan on your 212+. I finally got around to it today and it made a huge difference.

i was wondering about that as well. I had manually set the voltages to 1.475 i believe it was, because that's what the post about 1055t's said to do for an easy 3.8- 4.0 ghz. i was just stress testing at 3.5 to see if I could even get that. I'll have to check into why it's showing that voltage

Hadn't though about that redface.gif what kind of fan did you buy that had mounts on it?

Is your motherboard an MSI 880G-E45?
Then you shouldn't be overclocking or even considering it at all because you are putting your entire system at risk.  The low end/low quality 4+1 phase VRM setup (yes, known for problems/failures) is not going to hold up, this is an unsafe combination of CPU and motherboard to run.  You should be avoiding overclocking on this motherboard, let alone running the 1055T.  MSI 4+1 phase low-end boards have been known to have horrible failure rates, often despite cooling methods, often even with processors at stock speed or otherwise well within the rated TDP.
