Ready to start OC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ive been preparing to OC my rig for quite some time now. Buying different components and such.

Here's what I have to work with:
-1055t @ stock 2.8 ghz (locked multiplier)
-2x4gb samsung ddr3 1600 30nm edition (supposedly a great overclocker according to reviews, people getting 2133 @ 9,10,10,26)
-ASUS Sabertooth 990fx UEFI bios

If possible, Id love to hit 4ghz being stable. Ive read Gappos' guide to overclocking so I attempted to OC the ram first. Im not sure if its the UEFI bios or just my unfamiliarity with OCing in general but I tend to get confused on which frequencies are which, how high is too high for what component, which voltages to adjust and to what degree, how low to reduce timings on ram, how high to raise the FSB over 200, etc. I have downloaded prime95, superPI, CPU-Z, HWMonitor, Linx (however ive never used it before). I am able to quickly pot screen shots so you all can see what exactly im doing, because I really don't know where im going wrong. After adjusting ram voltage to 1.5, frequency to 1867 (which raised my CPU to 3.3ghz automatically), I get a failed prime 95 about 3 seconds in and then BSOD about 10 second later. Could someone please help? Thanks!

You should OC the RAM last. Have you read this?

Following this guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/777378/official-gappos-little-deneb-thuban-overclocking-guide-with-too-many-smileys/0_50

it says to do RAM first. Seeing as Im completely new to this, I really don't know what is best. ANd yes I have read that article. I think it also doesn't help that in many of the guides, different abbreviations are used for the same things which can get really confusing to a newbie.

Ah. I would trust and follow what Gappo's says then. To OC the RAM,

http://slappablog.com/2010/10/14/phenom-ii-imc-ram-overclocking-guide/

With that Samsung RAM, a good place to start would be 1866 9-9-9-24 at DRAM 1.5 V.

So, I've finished the watercooling system and have a stable OC so far at just over 4.0ghz. See attached pic. Please take a look at these and let me know if you see anything that stands out as good/bad. I ran prime95 for over 12 hours with no errors. What else do you think I could do to pump out some more speed? What parameters should I alter next?

just try n up the fsb some more. looks like your temps are ok keep the cores under 60c or 55c for exterme safety. my 1055t is bugged it says 10c for idle and 20 load lol

bumped up fsb to 297 running at 4.11ghz now. stable thus far for about 20 mins or so. As frar as my CPU/NB and HT link frequencies, are they too low? What effect will it have if they are raised?
