Is the voltage of my 1090T normal ?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I recently put a computer together and I was wondering if the voltage of my Phenom x6 1090T is normal. I am by no means an expert at overclocking so I have no idea if this what it should be. I have overclocked the CPU at 3.6ghz using AMD Overdrive and I haven't touched the voltage at all. My idle voltage is 1.212 and under load it goes up to 1.42 but then it drops to 1.368. There are times when it stays at 1.42 for a couple of minutes but it usually drops to 1.368. I have read that the default voltage for the 1090T is around 1.35 and it should be more than enough to handle my overclocking at 3.6Ghz.. My CPU voltage is set to "auto" in the bios and I don't know if I should lower it and if so, how do I do it.


Thanks in advanced.

Looks like you have cool n quiet and C1E state and maybe turbo core still turned on so the System is adjusting voltage up and down along with speed of the CPU dependnng on use.

1.42 volts is no issue.

I would like to keep CnQ on to save power and I think turbo core is disabled. If I were to change the Offset Mode Sign to "-" and then lower it by 0.04, would that be okay ? I don't know if what I'm doing is correct.
Thanks again.

wont hurt. if theres not enough volts for ytour cpu it will blue screen with stop 124. just up the volts a little if thats the case. All chips are different though. SDome are great at runing on low volts , others need heaps of volts. trial and error is the way to find out.

Well, I changed the Offset Mode sign to negative and tried to lower it but when I get to windows and open cpu-z, I see that it hasn't reduced it but actually added it so now the voltage goes up to 1.46. This is really driving me nuts.

try changing from offset mode.

Edit: I had never heard of "offset mode" before. Apparently ASUS is saying it allows changing voltages in all P states, so even when at idle your voltages scale up and down according to the setting. Now that I've read up on it, try changing to -.125. If voltage is above 1.32 when loaded, try lowering or turning off LLC(load line calibration).

If that doesn't work, you can try changing to manual mode and set 1.325. Your idle voltages will still be high, so you will need to use phenomMsr tweaker to adjust idle voltages in windows if you go that route.

I tried that before but it stays at that current voltage at all times. I would like it to go down if I'm not using the computer. Is there another way to just keep the Offset mode and to make the max voltage that it can go to like 1.38 or something. I use the computer for 3D rendering and I see that my motherboard adds extra voltage when needed.

I think you may be able to achieve what you want with PhenomMsrTweaker. It allows you to set your own p states, volts etc.

Info can be found here.

Well, it seems that turning off LLC does nothing because the voltage still goes up to 1.42. Can this be fixed in the bios or do I really need to use PhenomMrsTweaker?
Thanks again.

Turning off LLC is likely to see bigger swings in voltage under load. I always leave it on. Im no expert with cool n quiet as I overclock my systems and disable it.

I dont think you can run Coolnquiet, undervolting and overclocking without the aid of something like PhenomMrsTweaker. Later this week when I add my 1100T and 990FX mobo I will have a play and see what can be done.
