Problem Overclocking AMD CPU

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Dear everyone.
I got a problem overclocking my AMD Fx-4100 CPu
When my Sli gtx 660 are installed, i cannot enter in my windows with my CPU OC
I removed one of those, and i can go in my desktop with my OC CPU

The CPu is completly stable, not a big OC, from 3.6Ghz to 4Ghz With H40 dual fan water cooling.
And the GPU are not OC they are stock, with the latest of Nvidia Drivers.

I'm thinking of 2 things.

1. Is that my PSU (700w) cannot give all the power of my components.

2-Could be the Drivers of Nvidia, but i got the latest..

Here is the spec of my Computer

Msi 970A-G46
Amd fx-4100 OC to 4Ghz with h40 liquid cooler
Ddr3 1333 corsair 16Gb memory
2xEVGA Gtx 660 Superclocked+ 3gb stock (SLI)
700w Thermaltake PSU


Its really when i put my 2x gtx 660 that i cannot enter in my windows, There is no BSOD,
My computer Froze When the Windows say: Please Wait then the Welcome message appear, and not the small circle freeze up and there nothing to do.


Thanks !

Try putting everything to stock. Install one card at a time. To make sure each of them work separately.

what have you changed in the bios. on average for gtx 660 sli a minumum of 700 watts is required. The psu might be struggling to push both cards. Have you bumped the voltage up.

For that small of an overclock you should need very little. You will also need to adjust your memory settings.thumb.gif
