AMD Phenom™ II X6 1100T Processor Overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm going to come right out and say I'm new to this but I've been looking to overclock this thing for awhile and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I have the following specs: http://valid.x86.fr/367j07

In the BIOS theres a ton of options, and I heard this board is pretty decent for overclocking AMD chips, but anytime I change a value either Windows fails to load or the PC just turns itself off and doesn't come back on unless I clear CMOS.

There hasn't been an update to my BIOS in awhile and I'm looking to finally overclock this chip and possibly get it up to 4.0GHz but I'm not sure where to begin with all the settings and intricacies of the 990FX.

I heard that my CPU auto overclocks itself with something caller TurboCore, but I don't want to use this feature if possible and would rather have my stock values increased across all six cores.

I've read a ton of guides online but it seems there's not much info on overclocking from the 990FX and with the turbo core I think its making things difficult.

I also have upgraded my stock cooler with this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007JEMXYQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and currently with stock everything my PC runs at about 24-26C idle when in WIndows.

Any advice or tips please? TIA

It's pretty much the same on any AMD motherboard/chipset, sometimes the manufacturers change the names of the settings (for example some motherboards show cpu ratio and other use cpu multiplier but it's the same and acts the same way) but they all work the same, so practically you could use any guide for amd cpu overclocking just locating the correct settings. thumb.gif

Also it would be nice if you add your whole PC specs to the post biggrin.gif

I actually just finished building my rig it's in my sig but i'll see if I can find a way to add my entire rig to my post.

I think....... I achieved 4.0ghz........... Now im gonna make sure this thing is stable. I got a couple BSOD before it actually booted into Windows finally.

Frequency
4013.39 MHz (20 * 200.67 MHz) - Uncore: 2006.7 MHz

http://valid.x86.fr/aedxal

Temperature
33.9 °C / 93 °F

Wow this cooler is amazing.

EDIT:

After several BSODs I've dropped it down to 3.8Ghz. Temps still extremely low and benchmarks say I'm performing way above expectations.
http://valid.x86.fr/jhn2q1
55.4%
Above average

EDIT2:

I would still like to get it back up to 4.0GHz, but I get the following BSOD:
Error: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This problem might also be caused because of overheating (thermal issue).

EDIT3:

I am running 4.0Ghz and it's stable. Had to bump the voltage up a bit but temps are still low considering: http://valid.x86.fr/ai93l9

Got some help from a friend who suggested voltages we too low for 4.0Ghz which causes BSODs
