Once turbo core is disabled all you should have to do is raise the multiplier to 4GHz. Should be able to hit 4 with voltage bump around 1.25v-1.3v
Voltages : Manual
Load Line Control: Extreme (This helps with Vdroop)
AMD C1E Support: Disabled
Cool & Quiet: Disabled
Disable everything under PC Health Status.
Set your RAM speed and timings manually to stock. (Don't let the bios auto config.)
Make sure you use a temp monitor program and keep load temps below 60c.
Bulldozer gets no real performance gains by raising the Northbridge and HT clocks so leaving them stock is fine.
If you want to overclock the NB...
CPU NB Vid: 1.3v
Sorry to highjack this thread, but can you tell me how to get the cpu core speed up to 233MHz. I get to about 220MHz and start to get bsod.
I already tried 4.4 @ 1.4v and bumped to 1.425v with multiplier only and core 5 keeps failing no matter what I do.
ps how do you get you rig to show up in sig? I tried making one, but it doesn't show up for me.
