1100t Overclock

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
so i just wanted to share my computer specs and a few screen shots. Any input, or some shots of, or the specs of your build, or whatever you want to say about mine .... open the flood gates biggrin.gif



also antec df85, 1000w antec psu, 2ssd in raid0... it think thats all that stuff
any questions or anything let me know...

here are the CPUZ screen caps

So your CPU is the following?

4.0 GHz CPU
with a 2400 MHz NorthBridge
and a 3200 HT Link Freq?


Well, you shouldn't need more than 2400 HT Link Freq with higher powered SLI, so you should lower it, save the voltage, and actually greatly increase the stability.

You can also push the 4.0GHz CPU to probably 4.2 with that HT lowered.

Secondly, you need to push the NB as high as stabley possible.

My 1100T was faster than i7 920 @ 3.8GHz with 4.2GHz CPU and a 3200 NB, with 2400 HT Link Freq.

If on the other hand is 4.0, 2.4, and 2.2, (you should always snapshot CPU-z running on Main and Memory), then you would benefit from another 200 MHz link freq, and really need to push that Northbridge up higher. Most 1090/1100 can hit 2.8, some good ones can hit 3.4 GHz.

well im really stable now, i can run any test in prime to over 10 and not crash, i was at nb of 25xx mhz and ht of 23xx i thought i heard somewhere that you want ta 200 mzh difference in the two for best performance. but i changed my nb to 27xx and ht to 25xx and am still stable ... ill try something more later...

Why is cpu/nb so low and HT link so high? headscratch.gif
on Thuban..2900-3400 would be good on the cpu/nb
HT link..eh..sometimes it's good to have higher..I don't care what anybody says tongue.gif
supposedly the rule is to keep it around 2000-ish

I can only attest to my experience in Tri-Sli / TrifireX. 3x 580s and 3x 5870s.

If HT was 2000, then performance in benchmarks was 100%.
If HT was 2100, then performance in benchmarks was about 102%
If HT was 2200, then performance in benchmarks was about 105%
If HT was 2400, then performance in benchmarks was about 108~110%. No benefit after that, or stability was guaranteed either.

well honestly im still a little new to overclocks, in the past i just over engineered my box so i would never have to worry about oc'ing. on this box well it was over built when i bought it and is still more than capable, but i figured id play around. idk if you have any suggestions about somethings to try and change and what monitors i should use to benchmark differences im all ears.

I had one that would be stable a little higher than with the HT link..not much higher.
cpu/nb would hold @ 31-200 though biggrin.gif

so after some screwing around, with out a power increase it looks like my best performance is at the 27xx nb and 25xx ht. i tried blanceing the two and changing up and down a few levels and turning nb up and ht down some and those moving those levels around with that gap and after all of it ... the 27xx 25xx setup has the best performance

I don't understand why you keep increasing or changing from default, the HT. I can't emphasize this anymore clearly. It is not something that benefits much from overclocking and WILL LOWER the performance if you take it too high, as well as limit overclocks on other components such as CPU, NB, and even RAM.

You need to start from scratch.

Get a CPU overclock up as high as you can.
Get the Northbridge which handles communication from CPU IMC to RAM and PCI-E DEVICES (GPUs).

Leave HT Link completely alone.

Start benchmarking with a high CPU and Northbridge, when you are happy and stable, then you can play around with a small increase of HT Link frequency.

^^ This. On the Phenom II and Athlon II anything over 2000 on the HT link will lower your performance. The CPU/NB speed needs to be as high as possible. Please true us. We know a lot about AMD CPUs.
Here are the AMD CPUs I have owned.
Phenom II 550, 555, 560, 955, 960T, 965, 970, 1090T and AMD Phenom II x4 TWKR.
Athlon II 255, 260 and 640.
FX 4100, 6100, 8510 and soon 8350.
