Phenom 1055T Overclocking help. Ram timings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so I am still fairly new to overclocking. I had tried to OC my 1055T a while back and achieved 3.8Ghz with something like 1.375v and it would ramp up to 1.4v or so. I think that was a little too much voltages for what I got and it passed the 12 hour Prime 95 test, but after using it for probably a month I did BSOD so i removed the OC and have been using stock ever since.

So RAM. I know ram has a little bit to do with overclocking and the timings. i wasnt ever able to boot into windows @4ghz. since 1.375+v is my limit I didnt want to test with anymore volts since this is my Only PC and I wouldn't be able to replace a part any time soon if something went horribly wrong.

I just want to know if i should change my ram timings or anything with my ram. does it help?

What is your bus clock speed?

If this is your system.
System specs:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @stock 2.80ghz
Motherboard: M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
Ram: 2x4GB PC3 16000 2000mhz Patriot memory

Than you are good to go easily with a FSB of 300 and you will not blow up the mobo. Set your ram to 1333 and OC the hell out of it. That M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 is a very very good mobo for ocing.
