OC 960T from motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm new around here and I couldn't find a place to put it rolleyes.gif

So, what I want to do is learn how to overclock my 960T via my motherboard. I have the Biostar TA890GXE 890GX.
the bios does have its auto-overclock program but I've found it to be pretty rubbish as the most I can get out of it is 3.3GHz before my system won't start up.
But using AMD overdrive I can get the cpu to run stable at 4.0GHz. But I don't really want to be using a program to overclock as it isn't overclocked from when the pc is switched on, it's as soon as windows loads up it applies my overclock.

I'm a complete newbie to overclocking and know some of the basic stuff such as the multiplier and the vcore.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Squire

Hi.... and welcome to OCN! smile.gif

The way to adjust the CPU multi and vcore on the TA890GXE in the BIOS is: go to the T-Series tab, and set the OverClock Navigator to "Manual", then go down and select CPU Tuning. Once there, enable "Custom P-States". That will then give you the options to adjust the vcore via Core VID and CPU Voltage.... and the CPU multi via Core VID.

Wow, so simple. Thanks! biggrin.gif

This isn't related to the above but I noted you are in the '★BIOSTAR motherboard club☆' wink.gif
I was wondering, when I start up I get the Tseries screen letting me choose if I want to go into the bios or the core unlocker etc.. After that it comes up with another screen with something along the lines of 'Searching for devices,' then it comes up with 'No devices found' in red. After that it boots up as normal with no problems at all. It's been doing this since I first installed the motherboard and even got Windows installed.
It's not causing much trouble but it's a bit annoying as it stays on for 4-5 seconds sometimes and making my boot time slower. Bit picky but y'ano thumb.gif

thanks again for your help, and hopefully you can help with this.

You're very welcome.... thumb.gif

I know exactly which screen you're talking about.... I was thinking I should disable it on mine as well.... wink.gif

If I recall correctly.... go to the Chipset tab in the BIOS, select OnBoard Peripherals Configuration, then disable "VT6330 1394/IDE". That should prevent it from coming up during the boot process.

Board temps? I haven't looked too close lately, but lower to mid 30's is what I've been seeing according to HWMonitor....
