Need help overclocking my 1055T

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I built my gaming rig awhile ago, and I want to OC my CPU to about 3.4ghz (I might go higher in the future). The problem is I am a newb, and the guides I look at don't really help with my mother board I'm using, which is a TA890GXB HD Biostar motherboard.

If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it. I have an after market air cooler so I am almost positive I am fine on cooling.

Thank you.

Thank you.

The guides on this site should be ample enough to get you started.

But, before anyone can help you with anything, fill out the rig builder and display it in your signature, so the lazy members (like me) can view it without jumping through hoops.

I still had to jump through hoops to get to your rig,

but it also depend on how much you want to overclock it.

The TA890GXB HD uses a low end 3+1 phase VRM setup... it is not ideal and probably not ready for overclocking this 125W TDP processor


You'll want to look at other options for motherboard.......

Can you recommend a good motherboard to me? I will be crossfire g in the future
post #7 of 9

If you will be looking to Crossfire in the future than you have a second decent reason to swap motherboards since the TA890GXB HD I don't believe allows for it.

I haven't any idea of your budget but in any case I can recommend this if you want the highest quality option with best CrossfireX or SLI option:

GA-990XA-UD3 - $130 shipped, $10 rebate for $120 AR [NCIX]

It's the motherboard in my sig and as you can see has proven results overclocking the 1055T thumb.gif
It features full 8x-8x PCI-E slot (most optimal PCI-E layout for...) CrossfireX support on the 990X chipset with 3 PCIE slots plus a bunch of features including Dual BIOS (safe BIOS upgrade) and on/off charge (which I find really useful for charging my phone by USB when my PC is off).  6 SATAIII slots is plenty for most; USB3; and, to top it off, a quality transistor heatsinked 8+2 phase VRM setup that will push an x6 with ease.


Or, you can save:

ASUS M5A97 - $86 shipped [NCIX]

This board contains a heatsinked 4+2 phase VRM setup that is still by all means great for pushing a 1055T.  The price-performance at NCIX is great.  PCI-E slot layout is 16x-4x as opposed to 8x-8x but the 4x link will not bottleneck an HD 5770 in any way.  It might be interesting to note that the board has UEFI BIOS.

Cheimbro..you've already done the rigbuilder..now you go to "my Profile"
and "edit signature text"
I didn't figure this out until 3 mos after "the change"
PS: Listen to XD..he'll keep you from blowing your comp up wink.gifdevil.gif

My vote is for the gigabyte, but I'm biased. Love my current board, which is why I just can't bring myself to upgrade from it. smile.gif
