Well what do you want basically? i mean you are on 4.6 and that sounds more then descent to me.

what you looking for? What do you want to overclock?

4.7 to 4.8GHz if possible

i did a rigbuilder

Great man, now show it in your signature. Go to my profile and edit signature than use rigbuilder.

I have the same cooler with standard 2700RPM fans in push/pull and i can run 5.0 ghz on my system, obviously i can never run prime95 for couple of hours and honestly i do not use my CPU at 100% a lot so i do not see any reason to stress my CPU for ridiculously long times to make sure its ''stable''

I mean if you are only gaming and do light stuff there is no reason to stress test your CPU for ridiculously long times with very unrealistic loads like Prime95 rolleyes.gif

I test my system by things i do on a daily basis and that gives me the most performance and stability for about months now.

for example if i do Prime95 test for hours i am only able to achieve 4.6ghz because of the heat but now i can have 5.0 ghz stable without any problems because i never use my 8 cores at fully 100% and most people will never get all the 8 cores to 100% for hours a time and even than its stable it still can crash even when you did hours and hours of Prime95 testing.

And honestly i don't know if your RAM can be overclocked you need to try that yourself and see if its possible or not.

Also take a note that when you overclock your FSB there are more things that can run unstable so it takes a while to find your sweetspot with your setup.

yeah mines hits 58c on core temp n 69c on cpu socket temp running prime95 blend test for 4:30 hours stable was looking at 4.8GHz at least no more or maybe 4.7GHz

I can give you a start to begin with tho.

Go to your bios and turn off any power saving features like, AMD C1E support, AMD C6 support, virtualization, AMD APM master modeAMD K8 Cool n quiet control.

Than enable all your core by disabling, one core per compute unit.

Than go to intelligent tweaker and set the CPU PLL voltage control to 2.695V that allows the CPU to get an higher overclock with less voltages, this does not work for all motherboards but mostly it does.

Also set the NB/PCIe/PLL voltage to 1.895 that allows the CPU/NB to be more stable and runs more cool, same as the CPU.

What i did was set he LLC to extreme so that its needed the CPU can draw more volts, but in your case i would first go with high because you need to know what your CPU and cooling is capable of.

Also i need to know what timings your RAM runs so that if you want to overclock it you might loosen the timings a bit and add some volts.



Also i want to point out that its very important to use good TIM and spread it the good way because otherwise you end up with and too hot system because of mistakes like that.

Always use the pea method in the middle and it does not have to be larger than a grain of rice, there is no need to spread TIM because the heat sink does it for you.
Only with very very old TIM you need to spread it because its that thick but you cannot even get that anymore and has terrible performance so you don't want to use that anyway rolleyes.gif

ok i have all power saving off what do u mean by enable all cores by disabling one core per compute unit ? sorry to be a pain remember i am a begginer on this i got to 4.6 on multiplier n by reseach

Okay good thumb.gif

Well what i say is exactly in your bios in intelligent tweaker its under CPU core control and set that to manual and set one core per compute unit to disabled to make sure all your 8 cores are enabled.

Its okay to be a beginner or ''noob'' as they say, i was a noob too and i learned a lot here thumb.gif

I am going to bed now, i am sorry i am awfully tired now and tomorrow i help you some more.

Ok thanks alot going to try n let u know tomorrow
