AMD X6 1100T BE Over clocking Help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have recently purchased a Xigmatek Gaia in the hopes of over clocking my CPU to the 4ghz club. I have started over clocking and have ran into some issues that I am seeking assitance with.

First problem is heat. Idle with the new CPU Cooler @ 32C
Under load with not OC 46-47C

After a mild over clock to 3.6ghz and 15 min of Prime95 I hit 52C and stop the test getting too hot.

I cannot get a stable over clock over 3.7ghz without BSOD that’s with modifying the FSB, just changing the multiplier or variations of both with mild voltage changes.

My rig is below as well as a picture excuse the ****ty paint job but gets it done.






AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black 3.3GHz 6-Core
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek GAIA SD1283 56.3 CFM CPU Cooler
Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 ATX AM3 Motherboard
Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card
Case: Antec One ATX Mid Tower Case
Antec EarthWatts 650W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD
Asus VE248H 24.0" Monitor
Razer BlackWidow
Razer Naga 2012 Wired Laser Mouse


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated I know everyone is busy with the holidays fast approaching thanks in advance

Fill out your rig sir
Looking at that list of parts hurts my eyes.

This will help you immensely. Your max load temps are 55C. It's okay to run it around 55C for many hours @ load since 62C is the top top top top you want to stop everything if it hits. So hitting 55C is fine. Above 55C is where you'll start seeing instability affect things.


I'd surmise you're putting more voltage into your chip than necessary which is why your temps are so high at such a low frequency. So. Read that guide, figure out how to overclock the thorough way.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I changed the parts list was just lazy and you called me out on it meh I can see why. as far as voltage let me explain a little. I only changed the voltage 1 time to 1.45vs on the CPU just as a test to see if there was possibly not enough. The CPU is a 125 watt chip so it already runs hot so I did not want to change that much at all. Still I will read you above links as I have read many more. Any suggestions on the Fan setups I am not sure if they are effecting heat as well hence the pic.

thanks again for your help.

Personally I'd just remove the top fan altogether. It probably isn't doing much, heat will rise by itself and... yea.'

Your picture is misleading. Your push fan is the only thing pulling air into the heatsink, you make it look like you have a 5.25" Bay adapter and you put a 120 fan in there.

What I meant by filling out your rig. Look at my sig.

eh..pretty much all is already squared away here thumb.gif
Maybe try a remount of your cooler? idk..Oh.. You can disable 2 cores and still get good performance
with lower heat output/power draw.
I could run my cpu with 6 cores 24/7..but there's really no point..very often.

Oh I see what you mean now, I will fill it out when I get home and use the software right now im at work so does not make too much sense biggrin.gif

Sorry about the crappy picture the CPU cooler is in a push pull setup.

OH! You want to overclock your NB to about 2800~ mhz. The CPU/NB is tied to it. It should increase performance quite drastically since the Phenom II architecture does well with that.

Believe that's covered in gappo's guide.
That's super important btw for Phenom II's. I had a 955.

Yeah I can see that as a viable solution but my goal is a 6 cores @ 4ghz im gonna try everything possible before using less cores wink.gif
