H50 yes, if you have a sub-20c room temperature, otherwise, flat no. 4.138 GHz was the highest I could safely go.

Well, up and at 'em...

Went to bed with a broken bios, so decided to step back a bit from where I was heading. I did have memory at 6-8-7-24-27-1T, but I was also at 1.95v. which I wasn't very comfortable with. I had FSB up to 310MHz and was able to get a pretty good Maxxmem test, but couldn't run Cinebench, or LinX without crashing.

Well, I tweaked a few things back down over a dozen or so reboots, to where I'm stable in memory at the moment. Haven't run Prime95 yet, wanted to post these settings to see if you guys think I'm on the right track or not. Seems about OK, but without running Prime95, it's just a feeling. Memory is at 1.9v which I still don't like, but if Prime95 runs OK for 5~10 min. I guess I may live with it.

Anyway, here some screen grabs. I closed all unnecessary apps and did MaxxMEM again, got quite a bit better. Then ran Cinebench for my best scores todate.

Tell me what you think, what to look at if you would please.

Thanks.

Although I am a big believer in this HAF932 cases and their huge fans which blow nothing but cool air out of the case, I do know my limitations. In short, I do not have the skills you guys have nor do I have the time or desire to acquire them.

So I believe what you are saying, then, is to play it safe and not be a gomer by trying to "overachieve". Per the attached YouTube video, then, I should be safe in just OCing to 4.0 GHz.??

Sure do appreciate your feedback.

Petty much reached the limit here. I'm sure some tweaking could stabilize more, which is what I suppose I'll keep doing. But, the end effect won't be any faster I don't believe.

This screen grab was 1C before lockup--Don't even ask me how I know this.

At these settings and ambient room temps, I can run Prime95 4 minutes before temps will overtake the CPU. I'd like to just cool the CPU somehow to verify this to myself, but I am almost certain this is the case.

Hey guys I just did my first real overclock on my 1090t and I have a couple of questions. First I changed the CPU Ratio to 20, CPU Volts to 1.45 and CPU Bus I left at 200 so I now have my CPU running at 4.0Ghz. I also left my RAM at the default specs which are 1600Mhz at 8-8-8-24 at 1.65V and 1T. Everything is running fine so far but I notice something odd with my vcore. In PC Probe it will fluctuate from 1.46 up to 1.65 constantly. Also my CPU ratio will change from 20 to 18. I have CnQ off, C1E disabled and Turbo Unlocker off. Is there a problem? Should I be worried that my vcore is going up to 1.65V? I included pics of CPU-Z and PC Probe:

thats quite of bit of voltage for 4.0ghz. where is your cpu-nb at? did you shutoff offset voltage in the bios and just use manual with LLC enable or on auto? did you update to teh latest bios 1102?

Hi guys, im finally at home, ive been trying like 3 hours to fix my ram/mother problems and still i have the damn cold boot problem, im tired so im searching now for new ram compatible with Amd and the mother, the only ram that i can get are these:

OCZ DDR3 4GB 1600 mhz Reaper Ultra Low Voltage OCZ3RPR1600ULV4G (u$s 160)

Corsair Dominator DDR3 4GB (2X2GB) 1600 8-8-8-24 CMP4GX3M2B1600C8 (u$s 200)

OCZ DDR3 4 GB 1600 mhz Obsidian OCZ3OB1600LV4GK (the only ones who are in the list in the manual of my CH4) (u$s 155)

Gskill FLARE 2x2GB 1800Mhz 7-8-7-24 DDR3 F3-14400CL7D-4GBFLS (u$s 230)

Gskill Flare 2x2GB 2000mhz F3-16000CL9D-4GBFLS (u$s 285) (i really cant buy this ones, im not rich xD)

Prices are from Argentina but i translated in Dolars.

Oh i forgot, i bought a ThermalRight Silver Arrow, so i have to buy the ram who is compatible with the CH4, my 1055t and with that cooler.

Thanks for any help

Sorry, I thought I had disabled Turbo Core in the BIOS but I hadn't. I did disable it and now my vcore isn't going over 1.47.

I did shutoff offset voltage and set it to manual. My CPU-NB volts I left at Auto with the BIOS showing it as 1.131. My CPU Volts I have set to 1.45

LLC is set at Auto and I am using the latest BIOS 1102.

You mentioned that my volts are kinda high for 4Ghz. What would you suggest I set it to?

I need some help with overclocking my Sempron 145.

I've had it up to 3.780GHz stable with 1.4V (40*C Load @ 26*C ambient). The problem isn't here though. After flashing one of the BIOS chips to the new BIOS, I've decided to try and do this properly. The last attempt was a bit lackluster as I didn't have time.

Currently my mission is finding a max Reference clock frequency. Please note everything is still on stock cooling and we are close to summer here.(ie 30*C ambients) After the holiday I'll look at upgrading with my Christmas money.(Student Budgeting) The highest I've been able to reach is 291 in BIOS which translates to between 291.5 and 292 in windows(CPU-Z). This was done without raising any voltages but DRAM Voltage. Also S&M short CPU and Memory test stable. Will get to priming later.

The RAM I'm running is as cheap as it comes though. Kingston Valueram rated at 1.55V with 1333 @ 9-9-9-24 timings. I have however been able to clock it up to 1800MHz stable on 1.7V with 7-9-7-22 timings. Via a thermal probe directly on one of the IC's the ram maxes at about 38*C and according to the datasheet, it's rated for 65*C.

I'm suspecting my ram to be the culprit of the low reference clock though. Peculiar thing about it is that I couldn't simply underclock it to 1060MHz. It required me to drop the timings to at most 7-7-7-22. Currently I'm running at 1168MHz @ 5-6-5-15 timings @ 1.8V (39*C max). I've downclocked everything else to as close as possible to stock. I've tried setting every possible voltage independently and all together. Raising timings doesn't do anything for me either as it actually becomes less stable.

Thus my question: Have I missed anything? What else can I try? The current clocks will get me to 4GHz if needed, but I don't know why others can clock above 300 easily.

Thanks
