First time overclocking my Phenom - Page 5

post #41 of 77
Thread Starter 
it is a BE. I think I will try with 3.8 cause its my first OC and I don't wanna fry something. I tried looking for VRM here in Bgd but I think they have no idea what I am talking about. Any ideas?

My is running on those settings 24/7 with stock cooler. Just adjusting the multi your memory is not affected so you can set it to what ever it's specs are. The only thing that can make you a problem could be quality of VRM on MB as 965BE on those settings pulls 123.6 W.

Not every chip overclocks the same. My chip with that same voltage can only do 3.8 Ghz for example. Also did you stress test that overclock? The chip will draw more than 123.6 watts at those clocks as well because that is what it draws at stock. Those clocks and voltages will draw about 175 watts under load. Mine at 3.8 Ghz with 1.488v under load draws 167 watts.

I know, I must have lucked out with this one because at those settings it passed P95 and wPrime for whole night run albeit at temps at 60c. This Mobo is rated at 145w with 8+2 heatsinked VRM so as soon I get a CM 612s cooler tomorrow I think I should be able to keep it at 4.4 - 4.5GHz and that would satisfy me as I'm not looking to brake any records. As my computer is an 24/7 affair, what ever settings with temps ranging about 55c will be acceptable. I do like to push system to the limit some times, just to see what it can do but I always back it down a notch or two for normal run.
My previous CPU was a Regor 270 and it was siting pretty at 4.1 GHz at stock voltage so even just having 4 cores instead of 2 i got a good improvement that satisfies my needs for now. If it was not for a super-duper deal I got it for I wouldn't even buy it right now but this way, no regrets.

Dooya you should also disable cpu spread spectrum in bios and could you perhaps fill out the specs of your rig in your sig. Make sure you list all of your major components including psu and gpu, it would help to better understand everything your working with. Oh and good luck with your OC'ing! thumb.gif

can anyone suggest what ram to put on my mobo, cause I wanna go up to 16gb, it says it supports 1066, 1333, (1600, 1800, 2133 OC).

When you OC, it will OC the ram as well. Try to keep your ram under 1600 as it won't play nice with AMD. I don't remember which setting affected the ram speed off the top of my head though. But like vitalshot had said, you need to disable c1e, cool and quiet, and any auto-turbo settings. 3.8 should be very easy to reach and be stable at. When I did my OC I think I only messed with the cpu multiplier.

Well my ram is at 1333 so can that cause a problem? I was thinking of oc cpu only since my gpu I think is not good enough for oc and ram also. Weekend is coming and that is when I'll give it a try. There is no turbo features or cool n quiet, only C1E. I wish someone has an exact answer saying what exacly to disable enable change.

MSI clearly adverts cool n quiet, you sometimes have to hunt through your bios to find the features you need to disable, but hey are there. It also uses the OC genie, which is the turbo function which wil typically add around a .6 OC through a switch or setting in the bios. My switch was a physical switch on the mobo, yours may be different though. Go through every bios setting and you'll find them, just takes a little patience is all. But we are all here for you bud. I am sorry if I sound like a jerk, not trying too at all. When I got my MSI mobo it was not fun sifting through every single setting, things did not seem to be where they should, but I did find them after looking long enough.

Edit: Just went into my bios. If I go to the overclocking utility part, and then go to CPU Featues, that is where my cool n quiet and c1e are located.

here it is MsStup.bmp 2304k .bmp file MsStup00.bmp 2304k .bmp file MsStup01.bmp 2304k .bmp file

I have the OC button but as I have been told not to use it. I've found everything exept where to adjust fan speed on Hyper 212 EVO?

Earlier today I tried OCing it with AMD OverDrive and had it set at x19 3.8 MHz and did stability test for 10 minutes and everything was stable. I didn't want to run it longer 'cause I wanted to try in BIOS but no luck. Any ideas what could cause the problem or should I go with AMD OverDrive insted?
