1055T overclocking guide! - Page 5

post #41 of 42

I am new to the forums. I have had this processor for around a year and a half now and I gave up overclocking it since my first motherboard killed itself after attempting an OC. I did an RMA and haven't touch any settings since.

The other day I was playing a game and decided to install new ATi Drivers for my video card and ATi Crossfire profiles for Battle Field 3. I rebooted the computer and according to my rain meter which uses CPU-Z my processor is (407.7x14 @5.7ghz) it is running at 1.375 voltages. My temperatures jumped up 9*C as well. Battle Field 3 also loaded insanely fast.. I didn't do any real testing like prime 95 or super Pi since I had to meet my friends online. I'd send a screen shot but it won't let me. So I have to figure out how to do it since this is my first forum ever. (Just found out I forgot to verify my account)

**It was reading as 5.6-5.7ghz until I turned the computer off for the night. I used it for 4 hours playing Battle Field 3 while it was reading at this speed**

Does CPU-Z read things wrong at times? Because if it does this is the first time it has happened to me. 5.7ghz would sound sweet.. Although I remember when I tried OCing past 3.2ghz my old motherboard failed and I haven't OC'd a computer since. My board only has 4 pin power to the CPU not 8 pin. If you are wondering why, it is because this is an mATX build.

Here are my specs:

MSI 890GXM-G65
Corsair H50 Liquid Cooling
AMD 1055T X6 @2.8ghz
Corsair XMS3 2X2GB (4GB)DDR 3 RAM
HIS Radeon 6870 and Sapphire Radeon 6870 1GB GDDR3
Sound Blaster X-Fi 5.1 USB
Crucial m4 C400 128GB SSD (FW0009) [SATA III AHCI]
Seagate Barracuda 320GB (bought in 2004) [SATA II]

ASUS 27" LCD Monitor
Behringer MS-140 Studio Speakers
Corsair HS1 USB 7.1 Gaming Headset
Saitek R.A.T.5
Microsoft Comfort Keyboard
Silver Stone SUGO-03
