How do I raise my voltage for my CPU? - Phenom II X6 1055T - BIOS

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, I've been having a bunch of pain in the ass difficulties trying to overclock my CPU as you would see if you visited the "What's the best CPU I can get with my outdated mobo" thread. The ONLY thing I need to know right now, is how to raise my voltage to around 1.45 in order to overclock to 3.5ghz because my CPU will not overclock beyond 3.35ghz without a voltage boost, based on a quick flash of a blue screen and my computer restarting when I tried it. Here's a picture of what my bios looks like, the values above the voltage controls are NOT default, those are what I had them set at in order to overclock to 3.5, but I had to revert back to default because I couldn't find out how to up my voltage. My mobo is Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3

*

My current voltage, according to both Core Temp and SpeedFan is 1.35 and that's because I currently have it overclocked to 3.359mhz. Otherwise it would move around between 1.22 and 1.3 ish. I'm a complete noob at this, so you can obviously see my problem when I look in my bios and don't see a god damn number that says 1.22 or 1.3 or something like that. And you should be able to especially understand how I'd be confused at my Normal CPU Vcore saying 1.4750V when that's not my voltage. When I go to change CPU Voltage Control, which common sense says is what you would change in order to alter your voltage, I can up it by 0.025 and so on but 0.025 is the minimum I can bring it up because that makes it say 1.5v.... So does that mean I need to lower it or does that mean that is not the correct thing to mess with?

Overclocking to what I'm currently at (3.3) is perfectly good for my CPU. The max it reaches while rendering is 48 degrees... so far anyway. And it's sitting at 31 right now. I have liquid cooling, not sure of the exact kind though.




Please, when responding to this thread use the full names of the terms, I am new to this and will not understand if you start using a bunch of fancy abbreviations and such. I know how to test my CPU and such, that's not what I'm looking for. I need to know one thing, and that's simply how to raise my CPU voltage in order to overclock a bit higher. I think I provided enough information for you guys to help me out, but if I didn't feel free to let me know and I will reply asap.

looking at the picture is the last option "CPU Voltage Control" but there puts this to 1.47V which is very high for stock, that value is to 4Ghz or 4.1 Ghz..

Try to put 1.38 more or less for 3.5 Ghz

And your CPU northbridge freq is too low!!!! at least leave it to stock 2ghz, in your image is to 1.7 Ghz

The 1.47 isn't my real voltage if I have multiple different programs showing me a certain voltage. That's the problem.

Isn't this basic, easy **** for most everybody in this forum? Why is there nobody telling me how to raise my voltage yet? Lol. Guess everybody is scared of long threads that are actually simple. Seriously, could use some help.

use CPU-Z to see your voltage, and CPu settings, but normally you have what bios mark
post #6 of 7
Please post your CPU-Z screens, with both the main and memory tab open.

Blue screens are actually usually an indication of unstable RAM or CPU-NB, not vcore.

You should change your CPU-NB to x8 multiplier. CPU-NB and HT Link like to be at the same speeds sometimes with Thuban.

That and you should be able to change the option for "CPU-Voltage Control" from normal to something like Manual. This should open up the voltage options to change the value, and the vcore should never exceed 1.45v for 24/7 use.

Well, after typing a long pissed off message toward the stupid complicated bull**** that I'm trying to work through, I decided to restart my computer and take a look at BIOS to see if there is a separate tab in BIOS that allows you to adjust the voltage.

Oh look, it was my ******* computer being a god damn moron. For some dumb ass reason it decided it would be a funny prank to just say my Normal CPU Vcore is at 1.475. So I go back to my bios, minutes ago and would you look at that ****, Normal CPU Voltage now says 1.35. I'm assuming overclocking it to 3.3 made it change, but it should never had said 1.475 in the first place. ANYWAY... I did the overclock to 3.5, got 2ghz on the dot on both my HT LInk and CPU-NB and my RAM mhz was 1332 or something, so... should be perfect. Now, Core Temp is apparently a piece of ****, or I'm doing it wrong because it still says my voltage is 1.35. It does have the correct mhz though. SpeedFan has the correct voltage as it's now sitting at about 1.44 rather than 1.34 previously.

My computer has been on for about 10 minutes and the max temp it has reached is 30 degrees, currently sitting at 27. I'll continue to monitor the temperature as I play games to make sure it's all good. Thanks for the attempted help guys.
