Pci-e bus and base overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all
I overclocked my llano a8-3850 to a healthy 128 baseclock. My bro's hdd up and died, and since I was eyeing out SSD's, he got my fairly new HDD so I could try out these SSDs.
Well, I forgot that llano baseclocks and ahci don't play nice. So when I'm in ahci mode, the max baseclock i can run is a 108. Since the questionable HD i was using for storage was really noisy, I got a set of older maxtor drives (free from older bro to play with) set up in raid 0 (thru mobo) and got that all working, which lowered my baseclock even more, down to 104.

I am looking at picking up a pci-e raid/sata 3 card and another 60gb ssd to go raid 0 to remove myself from these old hard drives, in hopes I can go back to upping my baseclock to get back some of my high mem clocks. Not really important for my llano, but for below.

I am working on building a watercooled mini-case for the soon to be released trinity unlocked chips. I want to be able to have a high memory clock along with the unlocked multipliers of the K chip, and so I'm trying to figure out options for my SDD. Trading drive speed for mem speed is a difficult one to swallow. I really hoping some here have had success with bullydozer base overclocking and pci-e slot components, or llano and pci-e overclocks, Any experience here would be helpful,

Thanks in advance

Don't overclock PCI-E bus speeds, it will mess up your hard drives.

Thats kind of my question, how tied to the baseclock is the pic-e bus, and how sensitive is the raid controller if that is the case.

It's not tied to the PCI-E bus at all. Its not the raid controller but overclocking the PCI-E bus destroys hard drives any connected via Sata, because you are increasing the speeds they are not meant to be run at.
