I just picked up the new 95W version of the 1055T and a Biostar 890FXE
motherboard. For RAM I'm using DDR3 1333 G.SKILL RipJaws
with stock timings of 7, 7, 7, 21.
I haven't overclocked in awhile, and never on an AMD platform. After doing some quick searching, I'm convinced that I can very easily bring this CPU to 4.0 ghz. However, whenever I change the bus speed closer to 250, my system either won't boot or Windows will lock up on boot. Is this a limitation of my RAM? Should I be going for something with 1600 speed if I want to hit 4ghz?
Here's a noobie mistake I'm probably making: when I check my memory speed on CPU-ID, the DRAM Frequency is in excess of the 1333 my RAM is rated for. For example, it'll read as 750, 750 x 2 = 1500 mhz = system instability eventually or no boot at all.
Any tips? Thanks in advance.
