Well I tried a small OC just to see, and noticed my bios had the vcore set to 1.48 and under load it would move over 1.50. And during prime95 temps on the cpu cores would rise to 60c and up after only 5 mins. So I decided to lower the vcore after lots more searching and reading, I set it to 1.25 and ran prime again and maxed out at 55c after 45 mins. I thought I had a stable little OC. I put my computer to sleep and tonite when I got home fired up hwmonitor to see temps and whatnot. Vcore was 1.48. So I ran prime real quick and got 60c in 5 mins. I shut down and go tinto bios settings and the vcore there states 1.25 where I set it. I restart windows and run hwmonitor, 1.25. Run prime again for 45 mins nothing over54c. Any thoughts? here are the settings I have in my bios.
Ai Overclock Tuner – Manual
AMD Turbo Core – Disable
Dram Freq –1440
Dram Timing Configuration – 9-9-9-24
PWM Phase Control – Full Phase
CPU Voltage OCP – Enabled
CPU PWM Freq - Auto
CPU Load Line Calibration – Full
CPU/NB LLC – Full -
CPU/NB Voltage OCP – Enabled
Extreme OV – Disabled
CPU & NB Voltage Mode – Manual,
CPU VDDA voltage – Auto
Dram Voltage – 1.5
HT Voltage – auto
NB Voltage – auto
NB 1.8v – auto
CPU Spread Spectrum – Disabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum – Disabled

Do you feel I made any errors in my OC? This is really my first shot at a full OC after reading a billion links and threads.
Also I am assuming the stock HS is pretty much garbage since at bone stock auto settings prime95 will drive temps over 60c very shortly unless I drop the vcore. I probably should not do much more messing until I get my h100 agreed??
thanks in advance.

Yes the stock HS is nothing to be OCing with. If you're going to OC I recommend a high performance cooler such as the Noctua D14 for air or skip a few coolers and save yourself some $$$ and jump right into a Rasa kit. Better temps than H100 plus it's expandable for GPUs and full cover block later on down the road. Options are nice to have when just starting out. Ask around and you see most people go through 2 or 3 coolers before they go big, than ask themselves why they didn't just go big at the start!

With the temps you mentioned you have a problem, no way to check stability. You'll need to pass 12 - 24 hrs of prime95. I'd back off OCing the CPU till after you can check stability with the 16 GBs of Ram. My guess is you'll need more than just stock 1.5v Dram Voltage. Probably more like 1.55 to 1.6v. All four dimm slots full will probably require a boast in CPU/NB Voltage as well (maybe as much as 1.3 - 1.35 for CPU/NB Voltage). Start with the NB Feq at 2000MHz and test Ram by itself. After is Ram stabilized than I'd raise the NB Freq as high as possible (2600-2800MHz), make SMALL increases in voltage after prime95 fails and re-test till stable. Than wait for the new cooling solution to proceed with the CPU OC. Maximum temp under load should not exceed 55c when OCing. This leaves some headroom with temps.

Be sure and maintain the HT Link Speed to 2000MH +/- 200MHz.

Here's the OC guide I like to recommend http://www.overclock.net/t/525113/phenom-ii-overclocking-guide

If you need more help feel free to post back, or PM me.

Hi there,

Hello guys I love this thread, there are a lot of ppl that know a lot about OCing and many more. I need to evacuate a doubt: Should I buy the Bulldozer Hexacore? Windows 7 have a new update for this processors, they say this new update will make big improvements on performance. This 2 updates: Scheduler Update (KB2645594) y Core Parking Scheduler Update (KB2646060) from:

Should I buy it? I'll be using it on a Crosshair IV Extreme platform with the last Bios update possible. I need some guidance before I decide. Or should I wait till the stepping B3 for Bulldozer planned this for year? Bulldozer II right?. Please does anyone here follow the news?. I don't want to waste my money since my Phenom II 1100T is giving me all I want. I will only upgrade if there are great improvements. I just want to share some news Ive reading all around. Anyway "They aren't making big noise though". (Im from Argentina sorry for my bad English)

Sell your chiv board and invest in an intel i7 sandybridge board instead! All i have to say is that my Amd chiv board has been such a dissapointment and bulldozer isnt much better than a 1100t. Only thing AMD has going right now are video cards!

Not near enough performance increase so far to offset the cost in my eyes. I'm holding off for a bit and letting the dust settle on this one.

Sandman-
So would the rasa 750 be good? Now you say to test my ram by itself, I assume you mean all settings stock with just the ram bumped up? I did have to bump the ram voltage from the stock auto setting. I was getting BSOD in games. I changed the timings and upped the voltage and seems good now. I did bump the nb/cpu voltage up to 1.2 or so iirc. Looks like I'll be waiting to OC until I can get some better cooling onboard. You also said to raise the nb freq. But again iirc, the nb freq wont increase in my bios. I'll check again tho.
Thanks for the help!

ok so I reset all settings back to auto or stock in my bios. except dram voltage-1.55 I run ptime95 and temps are at 60c in 5 mins. is that normal for a stock cooling setup?

Yes I reckon having those temps when testing my phenom II on stock with the stock cooler. Don't worry, but you should be better catching a good cpu cooler as soon as possible.

I have a question about this:

338

Are the voltages ok?, I mean is this normal normal that the 12v shows as 11.73v and the 5v shows as 4.91v. Im worried about this. Please can you teach about this. Or at least tell me why is this showing this way?.
Another question is: Are 2 6870s bottlenecked by the Phenom II X 6 1100t 4.1GHZ? Im seriously afraid about this fact. While playing Crysis 2 everything shows ok: 2 gpus get 99% load, but when Im playing BatmanAC or ACRevelations I get 40%~60% load on both GPUs. Is something really bad happening?. Can anyone please guide me about this?. Im NOOB here... tx

The 1100T won't bottleneck those cards at all but have you overclocked the CPU? The voltages are a normal thing and mine say that type of reading also so no worries.

The cpu core voltage can go up to 1.55 on the 1100T and it won't hurt it as long as you keep the core temps below 62C but the screenshot shows you're at idle so you would need to get temps while you were under full load.
