Can you please assist me in my overclocking. I cant get my overclock stable.
Phenom II X6 1045T
ASROCK N68C-S UCC
Cooler Master 212+
4GB Kingston DDR3 1333 Value Ram (8GB [2x4] G.Skill Ares Coming in 12 hours)
Sapphire Radeon 7770
Omega 750W PSU (33A, +12V rail)
When I try to overclock, and run Prime95 @ 3.4GHZ, The computer shuts off by itself. Also if i try 3.1GHZ, the CPU speed is downthrottled to 1600MHZ. Cool and Quiet was off, C-State support off, Turbo Core off. My max CPU core temperature at 3.4Ghz was 35 degrees. I heard some people talking about disabling 2 cores (This computer is purely for gaming) but im not sure if that will help it to become stable or reduce performance of the CPU. Based on other suggestions, it has been noted that my processor HT link is limited to 1000Mhz because my socket is Am2+.Yes I know my mobo isnt good, but i really cant afford one right now (Im still a student) Can anyone help me?
