Feedback on attempted overclock.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am very new to overclocking and virtually no experience but I read some guides for noobs and gave it a try. I know that every CPu is different so I was wondering if you knowledgeable people could give me some feedback.

CPU: AMD Phenom 2 X6 1090t
Ram: G. Skill Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
Mobo: MSI 890fxa-gd70

I got the CPU stable at 4.0 ghz but im not sure how the voltages are factoring in and if they are at recommended or safe values. Any help is greatly appreciated!

You are fine on the voltages. I think the 1090ts are the same as the old phenoms as far as max vcore (1.55v is the max). What are your load temps on that loop? By the looks of things, you could likely go a little more if temps are good.

I ran Prime95 for 14 hours and my CPU temp never went above 38 degrees celcius. Id like to go further but im not really sure how to do it. Thanks for your reply.

Raise your multi @ 16.5 --> 4.125GHz, and your CPU Voltage @ 1.425V(or higher if unstable). Run P95(1 hour). If stable, raise multi @ 17 --> 4.250GHz, and CPU Voltage @ 1.45V(might need more than 1.45v). Test longer (P95) when you hit your desired frequency

Watch your temps, and be careful, because some MSI boards blew up(MOS-FETs) during Thubans OCing.
You can add a small fan to cool your NB/MOS-FET heatsink
