Wondering a question about OC'ing my new CPU

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm just wondering what's a good OC'ing speed for the Processor that I have I was told by AMD it can go up to 4.5GHz stable but for some reason I can't get it past 4.11GHz is this a good speed? and is there a way to go higher? Also I find Prime95 don't like this processor for some reason it gives me warnings if I go past 4GHz and sometime I get a warning at stock speeds but with AMD Overdrive running a stress test at 4.11GHz for 1 hour causes no errors or warnings. Any help on how to get a higher clock speeds is welcome.

4.11 Ghz is good but 4.5Ghz is better biggrin.gif

What are your settings and temps?

You should be able to go higher, but that depends on things.

You may need to increase the vCore, or some other setting

AMD Overdrive is only good for a preliminary test.

Here's the info:

CPU.NB 1.75V
CPU 1.40V
DRAM 1.65V
VDDA 2.5V
NB HT 1.2V
SB 1.1V
NB 1.8 1.8V
Idle temps are around 30-33C
under load 58 to 60C
I put the CPU volts up to 1.425V and the computer won't wake from sleep mode everything turns on but no picture monitor stays off. If I stay at 1.4V that don't happen I had it up to 4.3GHz but not stable it seemed stable up 4.21GHz but I had to have the CPU core V to 1.45V and it cause the computer to slow down and sleep mode to act up not sure what's going on.

Maybe read and try this guide.

Not sure if the FX chips are similar to the Phenom II, but it sounds like you may need more vCore, and maybe your ram speed needs looking at. Sorry but I have to go and have dinner wink.gif

Yeah thats way too high :S I'm able to get my 6100 upto 4.5 on 1.45 volts :S

Are you using the FSB or the Multi to OC?
