Overclocking

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I wanna overclock my hardwares; These are my hardwares, and i wanna overclock them all. I don't have water cooling. Just air cooling and stock fans.

How can i overclock these hardwares?

KINGSTON 2*2GB Hyperx DDR3 1333MHZ CL7 RAM
XFX AMD RADEON HD6850 ÇIFT FAN GDDR5 1GB 256BIT DX11
AMD PHENOM II X4 945 3.0 GHZ
ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AMD DDR3 1600MHZ

No VRM heatsinks = don't do it !

LOL

I don't know what heatsink is? Which are/is shouldn't i overclock?

You don't have any heatsinks on your VRM. A heatsink is the chunk of metal (usually aluminum or copper) that dissapates heat from a component, in this case the VRM which is the components that supply power to the processor. If you try to overclock on a board with no VRM Heatsinks there is a high risk of them failing and possibly killing your cpu and in extreme cases can pop and catch on fire.

Asus boards feature VRM protection where the board will throttle the chip if things get too hot for the VRMs to handle.

Also, the 945 is a 95w chip and that board has 4+1 phases and (though unsinked) would be MORE than capable of handling a mild overclock on that chip.

@OP - get a hold of these - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708011

Stick them over these:



If you can't get a hold of the heatsinks, you could always place an active fan over the VRMs (the ones circled in red).

After getting everything set up, read this -http://www.overclock.net/t/777378/official-gappos-little-deneb-thuban-overclocking-guide-with-too-many-smileys

Should help get you started smile.gif

katates, are you comfortable playing around in BIOS?

Do some reading of the guides around here, but you should be able to get that 945 up to 3.4Ghz at least pretty easily. You have a locked multiplier, which means you will need to increase the FSB, somewhere around 225 would do the trick. Of course, you will need to play with voltages and RAM speeds, but that is after you read the guides.

No i am not. I just know how to open BIOS biggrin.gif

Your going to have to "overclock" your motherboard as you dont have a Black Edition cpu. Only way to make your cpu go faster is to up your reference clock. You will want to keep your HTT speed to around 2000mhz by lower the HTT multiplier. If you are already lost by these terms then you need to do more research and read some guides first before you try anything. Stock fan is going to limit you to a relatively low overclock.

I made it 3.2 ghz with stock fan. What is my limit? Is 3.6 ghz okay?
