I went ahead and overclocked it myself. 3.33 ghz 1.45 v sound good or should i drop the v?
post #3 of 35
1.45 is a bit high but still considered safe for these processors. The highest that these can take is generally considered to be about 1.5... but running that voltage every day for years may cause damage over time. Try lowering it if you can, but if that's the lowest you can get, it'll be alright.

You also never mentioned your cooling. What do you have for hsf?

Well, it depends from CPU to CPU, some 1055T's are great, others are voltage nightmares.

I had a 1055T that took 1.508v to maintain 4000mhz, then I had an 1100T that took only 1.35v to maintain 4000mhz.

3.3ghz is a good steping stone to start from, I would start droping your voltage by .05v in bios till you are not longer stable, then bump it .025 when you find the lowest it will run.

Since you are running 240x14 try these settings out.
Keep your CPU-NB @ x10 (2400mhz in this case)
Lower your HT to x9 (2160mhz) or x8 (1920mhz)
Set CPU-NB V to 1.15v
Your ram is in the same channel atm, move one of the Dimms over a slot.

Make sure CPB is off (AMD Turbo)

Im using the hyper 212 plus with one fan. I'm planning on getting another one as soon as i get deeper into overclocking. So I'm just going to have to keep testing using occt until it becomes stable? Shall i put those new settings in now or once my system becomes stable?

What's your memory kit part number/rating?

On my system properties? For memory it reads 7.4

Forgot to say this but, before i read your replys i dropped the voltage down to 1.35v. Im running OCCT on infinite and my cpu temperature wont show because i unlocked the cores. I dont know why, doesnt make a difference.
