Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm Shuriken Rev. B 3 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler
BIOSTAR A880GU3 AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX
I want to get this CPU OC'd as high as I stably can, which I read is around 3.9-4.0 GHz. Problem is that anything over 3.6 GHz requires me to clear my CMOS.
I increase the multiplier to 18x to get that high, and to proceed, I increase it to 19x and 20x. I have even increased the core voltage as high as 1.45v so far. Still no boot.
Memory is running at stock timings. Is that my problem? Do I need 1600 memory or do I need to (and can I?) run this at 1600 or better timings?
Help greatly appreciated!
PS I really hope this is in the right place. I don't want to clutter your boards and from what I saw, this was the best place to post. Let me know if I was incorrect.
