Putting an 1100T into an AM2+ motherboard

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I know your gonna ask so I'll just explain it now: I'm doing it because I can, because I'm disabled and bored, and because it's probably not easy to do. I wouldn't be worth doing if it was easy to do!

So... here is my rig:

Gigabyte MA790GP-UD4H (socket AM2+) Bios-F7C
AMD 1100T Proc. (socket AM3 @x19 3.8 Ghz 1.450v
8 gig (4x2 gig) Kingston Hyperx ddr2 @1033 2.2v 5-5-5-15
Sapphire Radeon 6870 1gb
CM 800W certified silver 80 12v single rail

The motherboards CPU support list shows this proc as the biggest you can put in it. That was the idea behind the build. Max out the motherboard. Also, The 6870 is a PCIe 2.1 card when my MB is only a PCIe 2.0. I actually have 2 of these cards and plan to crossfire them as soon as I can get th proc stable and these BIOS setting figured out. Don't worry about the RAM. I know it's right and stable too!

The current problem is this: I can put the multiplier at 18.5,19,and 19.5. Also I can only set the CPU voltage to 1.425v, 1.450v, and 1.475v.
Anything higher or lower will cause the computer to NOT boot and I have to take the battery out and reset all the BIOS settings and so forth. Furthermore, I'm not sure what the default voltage for this proc is but the default that my MB uses is 1.475v.All of these settings have had BSOD but the most stable so far is the config. shown above in my rig's description

I'm not sure what to put these other setting at:
CPU NB Frequency- auto (uses a multiplyer so something like x2-x10)
CPU frequency is @ 200 ( the BIOS' auto setting)
HT Link Width- auto
HT Link Frequency- auto

Then it goes into voltage controls:
System Voltage- manual
NB voltage- normal
NB VID voltage- normal
Southbridge voltage- normal
Memory voltage- +.035 to 2.2v
CPU voltage- -.025v to 1.450v
Default CPU voltage 1.475v

Any help is appreciated!

i know this guide will work for that chip but not sure about the mobo. with older gigabyte (even newer boards) the cooler the components the better, especially that NB. so, airflow and a good cpu cooler like a Cooler Master 212+ will help.

use HW monitor to track your temps. do not let your cpu go any higher than 55C (my standard). if you can put a dedicated fan blowing over the highlighted area . . .



check and see if there is a club for the mobo or similar to it.

Oh sorry. I should have been more specific.

I am using a Zalman CNPS 9900a LED for the cooling. I have an Antec 620 liquid cooler but it failed and is in the process of RMA.

My temp at idle is 21c-23c. Couldn't tell you at full load temp because it always fails before I can tell what it is. But when I play Batman Arkham city the temp gets to 34c-36c with graphics maxed out running at 1920x1200 and getting a respectable 35+ fps. I am using AMD overdrive but it's not helpful in the slightest. I like Speedfan as my temperature monitor.

I'll look up a motherboard club but I doubt one exists for this old thing anymore.

Thanks for the input!

Did you flash the most recent bios to the board?

Of course I did! That's why it says BIOS-F7C in my rig description.

It's a bios issue. The latest bios only added AGESA codes for a half dozen processors and is still in beta form. Yes, the bios and board supports them (in stock configuration), but that doesn't mean you'll be able to overclock them without issues. Due to the age of the board, you can just about forget the possibility of getting a non-beta bios that works for overclocking that particular processor on that board.

So what do you think...

My current BIOS version is F7C.
The original version was F2.
I installed and ran "@BIOS" program to flash the BIOS (recommended by the Gigabyte MB home page) and it wanted my MB to use BIOS F6. At the time I had my old proc (940 BE) in the board because the F2 Bios version wouldn't let the computer boot at all with the 1100T installed. (yes the 940 was stable at 3.7Ghz for over 3 yrs straight but that's not the point!) Gigabyte says that this configuration will work. I want to see if that is true. I ended up downloading F7C (the BIOS version recommended by the Gigabyte CPU support list for the 1100T) and giving it to @BIOS to update. Went off without a hitch! Untill I started to try and set BIOS things from "auto" to there recommended settings.

Should I try BIOS version F6 like @BIOS recommends or another version I am unaware of or does anyone have a better solution? Would an older Bios version actually work with this proc? Just more questions I need answered. Please and thank you!

Some links to help:

My MB's homepage: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3003#ov

My MB's CPU support list: http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?v=AE72F6F9D4ADD0D75C8B514EA7AE45874D37047CBE4B0A7C&s=Socket%20AM2+&cs=AMD%20790GX
(look at the middle column on the right hand side-GA-MA790GP-UD4H)

I will double check my ram to make sure the BSOD are not them but maybe they are (most likely). Any help on the BIOS settings for such a weird config is appreciated big time. Still need HT Link Width/Frequency settings and any voltage advice possible.

Just a thought: could it be the interaction between the proc and the ram? Most likely a setting I'm unsure of?

I don't care if the thing ends up running only slightly better than my old proc did! I just gotta know if it's possible!

Your all awesome for the help you give me. Thanks again!

Can you set your DDR 2 down to a lower clock? Like setting it to 600 with your 240 MHz bclk should be good to start.

Also did you figure out how to change the base clock or multiplier?

As for hypertransport. Keep it at the max width (16?)
Keep the frequency as close to 2000mhz as possible

For northbridge get that as close to 3000mhz as possible

The vcore for your proc shouldn't exceed 1.55, but for a daily overclock anything over 1.45 usually isn't necessary

As for temps, max is 60

Sorry the 240 was from another thread XD

You have a decent overclock. You can bump the voltage to 1.5, just make sure your llc doesnt push the voltage too high during heavy use.

These suggestions are helpful. I will try to lower my ram ( i already know the default settings that do work) but as for the CPU voltage... I'm not so sure. Anything over 1.475v so far has led to a "no boot" scenario. I'll keep pluggin along and posting results as they happen.

TY again!
