Computer shuts down during LINX

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I am trying to oc my 1055t and something very strange is going on. I have it at 3.8ghz and when i stress test it with linx, it shuts down instantly after about 5 min. I know my temps are good.. it doesnt go above 52c.

This is the first time i have experienced this. No BSOD that i could see. it just shuts down!

EDIT: i updated my sig rig but its not reflecting. I have a NH-D14 and a Asus Crosshair V now

I'm betting on VRM protection.

One does not just overclock a Phenom II x6 with an unheatsinked, uncooled (no airflow at all due to 212+ and no heatsinks = HOT HOT HOT = lower capacity = over-current protection activating early) 4+1 phase VRM system safely or reliably...

(Add heatisnks, maybe mount a fan... and of course, read the article in my sig)

haha sorry should have updated my sig rig

running the NH-d14 and the Crosshair formula V now.... quite the upgrade thumb.gif

Thats basically not a Hex-Friendly overclocking board.
iirc its got a 4+1 Phase, and as xd_1771 said, its also not sinkd and and is poorly cooled.

Adding sinks and a fan to the VRMs may help.

You can cool the VRMs (the MOSFET chips particularly are the fragile ones that need to be protected because they are the active transistor component) and the transistors on this board which are of quality design and layout should be able to push the current without overheating to the point where 1. current output capability reduces and 2. over-current throttling or shutdown begins.

From what I understand, you are saying i still need vrm cooling on my board, or disable the vrm protection in the bios?

Right now im running two ty-140's that are pushed down as far as they can go... one of them is actually sitting on the vrm heatsink. I would think that the ty-140's would provide enough airflow to cool the vrm heatsinks.

also my "mobo" temps are also very low.... but i dont know what temp sensor that is or what part of the mobo its measuring

Either better cooling, or nothing.
Diabling VRM protection is incredibly foolish.

Specific VRM cooling is not something I would ever claim to know anything about, but it may just be that you need new thermal pads, or better sinks.
xd is your best bet for that.

mkay... well i dropped my cpu/nb voltage down and added another fan on top blowing in. Im 10min in now and no shut down yet. I wonder what did it. Im guessing it was the voltage
