1090T overclocking question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi again. I have a question. I have been trying to learn about overclocking but recently I have been having some trouble with heat problems (being addressed in separate thread).

My question is this: If I decided that I only wanted to overclock my 1090T and Crosshair IV board enough so that I didn't have to raise voltages or could just leave everything on AUTO and not raise the levels of heat being generated, what multiplier value for the CPU and CPU/NB frequency do you think I could probably get away with?

Hopefully I will figure out why I am having heat problems that I didn't have a week ago but if I don't figure it out, I was considering the option of not raising voltages to keep the heat controllable. I have an H70 so not sure why I'm having the trouble but as I said, hopefully people will post on my other thread regarding the actual heat issue that has recently started.

What do you guys think can be done with regards to overclocking my setup without causing too much increased heat to build up? And what's the best way to do it?

Thanks ............. Rob

Well this morning I put everything back to stock just to test and at stock I could run the stability stress tests with the CPU temp not exceeding 47C, which is why I asked the question. I am not a person trying to hit high benchmarks. Just a person doing some video editing and wanting to play video games. Wasn't sure how important the overclocking even is for that type of stuff. Trying to figure out what makes sense.

But you're right. Since I was able to run pretty rough stress tests last week without heating problems and now a week later I'm having heat issues, something must have changed and hopefully with the help of people in these forums I will be able to figure it out.

I'd reseat the H70.

My 1090T doesn't break 60C unless I'm giving it over 1.525v full load on an H50 with crap fans.

well....When everything is on stock and voltage is on auto with turbo core performance off, under load voltage peaks at 1.41v . I gave it a try and was able to achieve 3.85ghz with this voltage. As you have asus IV you probably can get a better oc on that voltage, maby even 4ghz. that board is the champion of overclockers in the AMD world.

I have Banged Out 4.2Ghz at 1.53v with my corsair hydro950 water cooler.It Ran Stable for 2 benchmark tests then Failed but temps stayed around 56 celcius.I found that 4.013Ghz by setting the multiplier to 20 at 1.54 stays stable so i backed it down to that.The HT and FSB overclock on my crosshair IV formula is Pretty Sweet i Pushed 3.7Ghz just with front side bus to 2320 stable and then bumped my multiplier up slowly to 17.5 befor stabilty crashed.I still consider myself somewhat of a medium knowledge overclocker but far from expert.I'm benching good numbers at Almost 23k on PCmark06 and good Frame rates with heaven (DX10 90+ Fps)(DX11 40+ Fps) If i can Give any Help With People less knowledgable than me let me know and if anyone has better knowledge than me and can offer some stuff i dont know thats would be cool also =)
