1.4250v. 3.8 Ghz on AMD OverDrive. it ran for over three hours and then I changed it back so I tried it in bios and the rest you know

Try setting that in bios. But also when you boot start up prime and CPU-Z. Look at what voltage CPU-Z shows, if it is much lower then what you have set in bios then reboot and set the voltage a bit higher. This is to counter vdroop which you may be experiencing.

So have you sorted everything out?

I'm waitting for some free time plus I have to make a plan if I fry something. When I get it done I'll write what happend. I hope everything goes well. Important thing is that VitalShot gave me a straight answer that makes sence so now I know what needs to be done and how. I guess you learn from your mistakes and I've already made a couple.

I did this and my computer won't turn on. Did you also find this out from trial and error or is there a reason for this?

I too am trying to get my new 965 to 4.0 ghz with a 212. The chip seems to handle it at 1.4v but heats up to 65+ under heavy prime95 load.

I didn't do that I just did everything the wrong way and I guess I'm lucky I didnt mess something up. I'm still at stock dont have time for adjusting now but when I do I'll see where I'll be.

Do you mean accidentally changing the NB Voltage instead of the CPU-NB? Yes, I did find that out from trial and error and it disabled two of my cores doh.gif

But anyways your board is not very good for overclocking. I would recommend some VRM cooling at the least to continue overclocking. Also my chip needs 1.55v just to do 4 Ghz and it is a C3. So just remember that nothing is guaranteed, particularly with these chips. You will need something other than stock cooling to cool this chip though. My Hyper 212+ can't handle 4 Ghz at 1.55v even with aftermarket fans. Although I didn't get fans with the greatest static pressure, they're still better than the single stock fan by about 2C.

He will be fine with a modest .4 oc, heck I don't think you really even need to up the voltage more than a few bumps. He will be stable and not fry anything. My 1090t went from 3.2-3.8 on a not so good board and still running, I even got to 4.0 and was fine. When I went past though is when I fried the mobo. His turbo should at least take him up to 3.8, so even 3.9 would be completely feasible. The oc itself won't fry anything, it's the voltage. If 3.9 is stable bump it to 4, you won't get past 4 though, not without really good cooling. If your oc is no bueno you may have to pop out your mobo battery for about ten miutes to clear everything back to norm though. My 965 went to 3.8 easy with just flicking a switch.

Phenom II X4s don't have turbo. Also, his 965 is a C2 chip so it can probably only do 3.8 and even that with high voltage. So his chip running over 1.45-1.475v would most certainly fry the board as his C2 chip has a higher TDP then your 1090T.

I wouldn't go past 3,6 if C2, mine did it without increasing voltage, but there was a huge wall to go over that. Too much voltage for too little gain.
