board doesn't support 1050T or its not listed. I mean 1050t is some special version not released together with the other models like 1055T.

http://www.asus.com/ROG/CROSSHAIR_IV_FORMULA/#support_CPU

if the board has the original 0505 bios you need to use a cpu that is suppored by 0505 to upgrade to 3027 to run the fx chip.


what I would do in your case is to take the board to a local professional or a shop that owns a sempron 140 (worth 30$) and upgrade its bios.

or buy one yourself http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=Sempron+140&_sop=15 and upgrade your bios.

if the board has been cleared by asus to be OK then the problem is you are using a cpu that is not supported by the bios you got installed.

I'm currently waiting for the RAMs so I'm not sure which BIOS version is on the board but which bios version would you recommend for ASUS CROSSHAIR IV FORMULA ( used with Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition)?

In ASUS bios download list I see that some of the new versions say "Improve memory compatibility" and "Improve system stability" (whatever that means) so would it make sense to go to the latest non beta version which is currently v2101 (3 Nov 2012) or there is an older bios version that is better for overclocking?

I used to have 1090T not very long ago, now I've got my FX-8350 and I'm of course using the 3029 bios.

For a 1090T I'd go with Crosshair IV Formula BIOS 2101
Code:
1.Improve system stability.

2.Enhance compatibility with some SATA devices.

this is the best version I used with my 1090T, it has the best voltage adjustment option in my opinion ( the manual method where you directly put in the voltage, not offset, the beta bios only has offset option ) I got the highest overclock on my 1090T on that bios.

v2101 is the latest non beta.

An additional question, I read in http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/amd-phenom-ii-x6-1055t-overclocking_4.html that is is better to use the relative voltage adjustment (offset) so that the voltage is lowered on idle (although I see that this may cause instability problems at high clock rates)
Quote:
Note that contemporary Socket AM3 mainboards do not disable power-saving technologies anymore when you manually increase the processor core voltage setting in the BIOS. It is sufficient to use the relative voltage adjustment option instead of absolute one in order for the overclocked processor to continue lowering its frequency and voltage for the sake of saving power in idle mode. In this case Cool’n’Quiet technology remains fully operational and your overclocked system doesn’t consume too much power in idle mode.

Is this not recommended?

You are going to overclock with powersaving features enabled? For any serious overclocking you would disable all powersaving features. If your going to keep them enabled you might as well not overclock at all.

edit: that was my experience with 1090T - It was hard enough to get 4.2Ghz out from it to then have the system dynamically change voltages depending on load, it wouldn't have been possible with powersaving like Cool'n'Quiet enabled. but yeah you can settle for a lower overclock with powersaving enabled, but if it is a concern for you, maybe you should just stick to the stock clocks since the performance difference is not really mind blowing.

Power saving is not important to me, just asking because I read the recommendation in the overclocking article.
In my current system (quad Q9550) I don't use any power saving feature.

Sorry I have been using my phone and it corrected to 1050, I have a 1055. And I know the chip works in the board because I used to use it in there.

I am going to get a sempron 140 from a friend today, Ill see if it works.

It depends who you ask. Some feel there is no way to stabilize a system running C&Q lol.
Myself I always ran it on my CHIV/1090T running 4233MHz OC with a 3211MHz NB freq and ram at 2006MHz. It was never any issue.
I personally recommend running the offset voltage and take advantage of the lower temps when not under full load. Manual voltage does not give the option to run C&Q while offset allows it up to 18.5 multiplier.
You'll need to adjust both LLC's. Feel free to PM me if I can be of any service.

Just a reminder to you new comers, while I have updated to a new system I do still have a basic bios setup guide for the CHIV/Thuban I put together a while ago which may help those not experienced with the CHIV bios.

I had the best results running the 2002 Mod Bios http://www.overclock.net/t/682489/official-asus-crosshair-iv-formula-extreme-club/11980#post_16950618

I guess I can try C&Q and see how it goes, thanks.

Can you please point me to your bios guide?
I can't locate it using search and it is not the bios article link in the first page of this thread.
