Overclocking with Hyper 212 plus

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, not too long ago I was looking at overclocking with a stock cooler, but the numbers weren't good so I ordered the Hyper 212 plus and now my machine is running great. I got my cooler and easily got my cpu to a cool 3.5 ghz. That heatsink is amazing. I have quite a bit of wiggle room however, and heard I can bump my fsb to 288 and get 4032 out of an air cool overclock. This being my first overclock however, I have run into a complication that I don"t quite understand, at least not fully. Upon upping the fsb to 288 my reboot results in an overclock failed message. I assume its due to a setting with memory or something similar but I really don't even know where to look since asus's bios refuses to use familiar terms from the forums. At any rate, here are some screens from cpu-z, and even my bios. How can I better optimize this overclock? If you are feeling particularly generous, you can also inform of the how and why memory affects an overclock. I'm curious and the sheer amount of jargon has me baffled. Any help would be appreciated. Here are my specs for quick reference.

Amd Phenom II 6x 1055t 2.8ghz cpu
Asus M4A785TD-EVO mother board
4gb DDR3 SDRAM 1600 for the ram

By changing the FSB, you are also directly overclocking your RAM. You will need to tweak your RAM settings and voltages, much in the same way that you have tweaked your CPU settings/voltages.

You need to go in and set everything manually. Remember though, that you're overclocking the FSB, and not just the multiplier. You'll probably have to actually LOWER your RAM speeds because you are overclocking it. It'll result in the same posted speeds. You also need to set your RAM timing and voltage. 9-9-9-27 is pretty standard, as is ~1.65v on the RAM.

EDIT: Also, you need to lower your Hyper Transport speed too. Again, that is directly influenced by the FSB overclock, so you need to scale back those speeds as well. You should check out some overclocking guides in the AMD section. Very good information over there and it'll basically show you exactly what you need to do.

Ah. That actually makes sense. I will dig around for those guides and come back with the results. Thanks for the pointers!
