Help with overclocking of x6 1045T...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought my motherboard 2 years ago with an x2 550 with the idea of just upgrading my chip once prices dropped. Now, I've recently upgraded the chip to a AMD x6 1045T and want to try overclocking it, if possible.

Here are my specs:
Mobo: GA-MA770T-UD3P
CPU: AMD x6 1045T
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Series 8GB DDR3-1600 (2x-4GB)
PSU: BFG GS Series BFGR550WGSPSU GS-550 Power Supply
VC: ATI 4850
HD: 1 SSD 120GB and 1 HD 300GB

Does my mobo support ocing?
Should I use AMD Overdrive or BIOs to OC?

Personally I always overclock via BIOS.

Your board should overclock the chip fine. I might get a heatsink for the VRM's on that board.

Here is a link to some detailed instructions...

Thanks for the link to the guide, I'll be using that during the process.

Should have added this, but my heatsink is: Scythe SCMG-3000 120mm Heat Pipe CPU Cooler w/ Arctic Silver thermal paste.

At stock settings, I was at:
CPU: 2700MHZ (200MHz *13.5)
NB: 2000MHZ (200MHz*10)
RAM: 1333MHz (I have 1600 RAM, but it was on 1333 by default)
CPU Voltage: 1.2500v

Where I am at now:
CPU: 3847MHZ (285MHz *13.5)
NB: 1995MHZ (285MHz*7)
RAM: 1519MHz
CPU Voltage: +0.0500=1.3000v

This is where I hit a wall. I tried raising/lowering most of the options, but my computer will not post.

I've been running prime for about an hour an my max temperature is 52C.

That's a pretty nice overclock, now just run prime for 11 more hours! tongue.gif

Failed first long run with prime95.

Increased CPU Voltage by +0.1000v to 1.3500v.

Did not fail at the same point as last prime95 run, looking good.
