1100T Which path should I take to OC

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I built this rig primarily for gaming and kinda of got interested in OCing for an extra bit of performance. I know most games use only 2 cores still. So, I am wondering should I turn two cores off and OC the four to a stable 4.1, or keep all 6 on and only get a stable 3.6-3.7 with out heat starting to interfere? Thanks in advance.

Just keep all 6 cores enabled and try to get your max clock. Shoot for a minimum of 3.8GHz

I would increase the FSB from 200 to 216.. Increase you Northbridge Voltage
Leave all six on.. That makes it better.

Ok so 3.8 6 core is greater then 4.1 6 core. Ill try it out tomorrow and report back. Now with the 1100t when using coretemp i am using a plus 7 offset is that around the avg for offset with this chip?

Doesn't really matter as Thuban temp sensors are all whack. Just make sure it's not climing into the high 60s or early 70s under normal use.

First off, are you staying on stock cooling? If so, don't push past 3.6 ghz, your temps will climb really fast. For that small of an overclock, just bump the multi, more likely than not you won't even need to move the vcore from stock. Also, you could tighten the timings with your ram a smidge, and oc the CPU-nb for an extra performance boost. For the CPU nb, shoot for 2700-2900 MHz and 1.35-1.4 volts for CPU nb.

Currently using hyper 212 + and is there a good guid you recommend on how to tune the timings for memory?
post #8 of 17
ahhh. them you could probably push the cpu to 4 ghz. just be safe and watch your temps. dont worry about ram timings just yet, ive never found a good guide for tightining timings, its more just guess and test. what seemed to work best for me ocing to 4ghz was to push the fsb to 250 and have 16 multi. this let me keep me ht link to 2000, and ram at stock speed. then, just up the cpu-np to around 2800 to 3000mhz with 1.35 volts on that. sorry if im sounding bamboozling to you, its not as hard as im making it sound lol.

if you could fill out your system specs it would be helpful for those trying to recomend settings...since your new to overclocking I'm going to recommend some quick reads so you have an idea of how things effect each other and what your goals for best performance should be...these for general knowledge and good solid information

Haha not at all, I understand most of it. Im just worried about temps on these things because everyone says they suck at accurate readings. And cpu-nb is the north bridge correct? If so, I thought that was suppose to be close to ht link.
