Biostar TA970 Overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have the following mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138372

It's a lower end mobo so I was not expecting much out of overclocking.

I have an AMD FX 6300 3.5GHz installed in this motherboard. When attempting to overclock it to 4100GHz at 1.27 V in vcore I start to hear an odd digital noise(Not sure how to describe it) coming from around the CPU. I've read that I should be able to go up to 1.35 on this mobo without issues.

Any ideas on what may be causing this noise? It's not a fan.. I also don't think it's a coil nor a capacitor due to the sound it's making.

Is the VRM since it's on the low end of things?

Also, I have not let it run for very long when I hear the sound so narrowing it down wasn't an option. Normally as soon as I hear it I power off, reset cmos and leave it to tinker for another day. Blowing the VRM and frying my CPU isn't in the game plan any time soon.

Figured I'd update. Don't use this motherboard to overclock. The VRM is not good enough. Even at 3.8GHz this motherboard goes crazy.

Biostar TA990FXE and Biostar TA970XE are the only Biostar worth getting for overclock wise. They have the best 4+1 power phase in the world.
