First Time Overclocking: AMD Phenom II X6 1045T

post #1 of 110
Thread Starter 
As the title states, it's my first time overclocking, and I want to overclock my 1045T CPU.

To start, my temperature data is located in this thread; I have already done some testing with Prime95 to establish a baseline of sorts. My fan arrangement (with pictures) is contained within this thread. My rig setup is located in my signature.

My goal is to take it up to at least 3.2 GHz while using the stock cooling and case fans that I already have. I've already disabled Cool'n'Quiet, C1E, spread spectrum, and Turbo Core, so those will be out of the way during the course of my adjustments. The multiplier is locked, so I am unfortunately unable to make any adjustments in that department. Should I start by adjusting the FSB or is there something else that needs adjusted first?

I'm going to start on that now; I'm waiting on my laptop to load up so that I can look off of it to get the steps.

It booted up fine, and Windows is running fine, too.

Here are the temps for the CPU thus far when using Prime95:
  • CPU @ Idle-- 21°C
  • CPU @ 10 min-- 53°C
In comparison, here's what I got for the initial test at stock settings:
  • CPU @ Idle-- 29°C
  • CPU @ 10 min-- 51°C
  • CPU @ 60 min-- 50°C

I'm not sure why its idling at a lower temperature, though; maybe that was just a sensor error or something.

Okay, I will skip FSB=225 and will go to FSB=238.

I'm also going to bump the NB and HT to a multiplier of 9x in order to get them at 2142 MHz. I haven't messed with the voltage or the RAM yet.

if you have problems, bump voltage.
all you have to worry about is temps. your vrm setup is fine, and those chips are great for overclocking.

Okay, cool.

It booted up just fine, and Windows loaded fine as well. I'm running Prime95 at the moment, so I'll have the 10 minute mark temperature soon.
