[Solved]Overclocking the Phenom II X6 1055T to 4.00GHZ+

post #1 of 137
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow overclockers.
There's a "mother" post (Or rather, what caused this thread to exist), because this is going out of the scope of the previous thread) if you want more background.

*super stimulating music*
I am on the quest to reach a place few has seen, and even fewer came back to tell about it...
I want to *music scratches to a stop* overclock my AMD Phenom II X6 1055T to 4.0GHz and more if possible.

My adventure bag contains:
Corsair Hydro H80 sealed liquid cooling
8 or 16GB 1600MHz Corsair XMS3 RAM chips (I own two sets like that, I run one right now, see previous post if you want to know why)
ASUS mA487TD/USB3 Evo stuff thing Motherboard
Antec Darkfleet DF-35 mid case
Antec TruePower 650W Power Supply
The highest stable I have in my OC profile is that one:
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2509945

Higher than that does POST, but I get the multicolor BIOS/Corrupt Bios message/Thing/Etc/yellow dots-filled pre-windows boot freeze/name it.
I chickened out after 3 "corrupt bios" and reverted to my last stable (see OC validation link).


I suspect my motherboard to be insufficient.
Last picture of my settings was this one:

I'm open to suggestion and I seriously need help there.

Thanks for the help of who I didn't thank, and sorry for not answering to crucial posts.
@Mezmenir: I don't have tRFC settings for my ram
EDIT: I know it's a lot of Vcore, but I gotta do what I gotta do, eh? Once I can prove it's stable, I'll lower the voltages.
I'm running at very very loose timings (9/9/9/30/40/2T)
EDIT2: I will have to change my push/pull orientation. it's blowing heat inside the case and my temps are waving between 29 and 43
EDIT3: Self-test 8K OK

Subbing for interest. I have a 970FA UD3 board and a 1055T and I wanna overclock that thing.
post #3 of 137
So 3.9 corrupts the bios but 3.8 is fine? Have you tried using the 13x CPU multiplier and overclocking with that. Sometimes odd multipliers overclock better. Did you find your max bus frequency? IMHO I think you need more VCore. Did you try the 3.9 @ 1.5V? Also from reading the 1055T owners club you may need to up your CPU-NB speed to 2400mhz+ from the ~2200mhz you have it at now. I would suggest upping CPU-NB speed and voltage at a stable oc as to not introduce anymore variables.

Hum.. What is that? or rather, which bus?
The net is not very helpful.
I can reach 282, that's the highest I tried that boots.
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2509945 There you go. Pretty much max stable.

@ 282 what are your voltages at? NB, VCore, CPU-NB?

Doesn't say on the valid link?
Vcore 1.464
NB 1.2
CPU-NB 1.15


Yay, I'm actually killing my PSU.
the PSU calculator says that I'm using 770w at 100% load.
650+80 = 730. crap.

You're sure you are killing your PSU? My PII 1090t x6 @ 1.45V gets my PSU up to 400w under Prime95 & 500w with AiDA64 all stress test (gpu + cpu) at once.

Some of those online calculator are... innacurate at best I'd say.

I highly suspect it is overstressing the memory controller with the 4 dimms installed.

Drop the DRAM frequency as low as it will go, and keep the timings loose like 9-9-9-30-40-2T until you get your CPU frequency stable, then go back and optimize memory. Raise CPU-NB to like 1.35V or so as needed.

noting that.

Not stable, though.
