Overclocking and the 1055t

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello there! This is my first post.

I'm currently rocking a Phenom II 1055t which I've overclocked to 3.303 GHz whilst undervolting it to 1.296 to give me a lovely idle temperature of 40C and topping out at around 48C when running the combined 3DMark benchmark, the physics 3DMark benchmark and the AMD Overdrive benchmark.

My question is this:

On an aftermarket cooler (ASUS Silent Knight running at 2500 RPM) what kind of voltages would I be able to raise the thing to and thus achieve a higher clock whilst maintaining an acceptable temperature?

I'm trying to squeeze the last bits of juice out of the thing before upgrading to either an 8350 or 9370.

Bearing in mind that for now I have a crap board (M5A78L-M LE)

Should I keep my current very cool overclock or heat things up a bit trying to reach 3.5-3.9GHz?

[EDIT]

Well it looks like my board won't allow me to go higher than 236 base clock (3.303GHz) no matter what I set the voltage to (highest I went was 1.5v) so now I'm back at 1.296v and stable (except when Turbo is enabled)

Looks like I'm going to have to wait a month for my M5A99FX Pro R2.0

Mine is at 3.8Ghz currently and stable now I have a Sabertooth board and an H80i AiO cooler for the CPU so my voltage is around 1.5v, for the price of the H80i you may want to look into this solution for cooling as I am also going to move to a 8350 or a 9350-70 so the water cooler is going to help with the high temps that chip is going to through off.
