Help for overclocking a non-black X6 1055t

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Trying to figure out how to overclock the 1055t. Computer components are in the sig.

Is the following approach ok?

- I will increase the FSB but reduced the HT and NB multiplier not to exceed their base clock. (Maybe a little on the NB)
- I will change the RAM frequency from 1333 to 1066 and set the timings manually to the default.
- I will try to increase progressively the FSB until the ram runs again at its 1333 speed. FSB of 250.
- I will bump the CPU voltage if necessary to reach that level with the CPU.

Q1: Should I turn off the turbo mode and C&Q with an AM3?

Q2: Can the mobo take the thermal load?

Q3: Is the CPU cooler good enough?

Q4: Should I overclock the ram?

Q5: To what reference are the timings linked. Should I setup the timings to the default or put some slack?

Thanks,

Q1 : I would turn it on
Q2 : Yes your board can take easily the thermal load.
Q3: Your cooler is enough , I oced my 545 back in time with a Scythe Katana from 3 to 3.9GHZ
Q4: No need to
Q5: You gotta test it out yourself.

Your approach is great but if your Multiplier is 15 x 250 = 3.7 , your looking to go from a 2.8 to a 3.7 and the 1055T is not a BE , im not so sure if you can hit that speed.

Anyway good luck

1055T can hit the same speeds as the 1090T. You need good memory and FSB of 286 to hit 4.0ghz. You need to play aroung the voltage on the cpu to find where it is stable at. Start low and work your way up. Fellow this 6 rulers of ocing and you will be fine.
1) Max cpu voltage is 1.55v.about
2) Keep temp under 55c.
3) NB frequency take it as high as you can take it and stable.
4) CPU/NB voltage max 1.45v. This the voltage for NB Frequency.
5) Keep HT around 2000.
6) Keep memory close to stock speed.

Doesn't the 1055T have a 14x multi? So you would need 286 FSB for 4 GHz, right?

Sorry. I wasn't think straight. Yes it does. Fix it.

Thanks guys.

I am being told that my mobo can't possibly not handle the extra heat and could even catch of fire (4+1 power phase only and sub-par heatsink). Please let me know what you think about that. Would you be concerned? Would there be a hard limit? I guess I will not play with NB voltage at all.

I guess I'll target only 250 of FSB at first to make sure the memory runs at its full speed. Going to 286 would result in a lot of heat for that mobo plus the memory would be slightly underclocked right?

Also, when downspeeding the memory, should I set up the timing manually or leave it on auto? If manual, should I use the stock latency?

Thanks for the good info guys...

Yeah there have been instances with MSI motherboards catching fire due to the 4+1 power phase. Hex-cores should draw more power than their dual or quad counterparts so the risk is even higher now that you're aiming for a high OC. Just watch out, even if the mosfets have heatsinks, it could still catch fire.

Go for a moderate OC, something like 3.5ghz (250x14) below just to be on the safer side.

You can leave the timings on auto for the mean time. When you've gotten a stable OC, that's when you start fiddling with the ram timings.

I wouldn't recommend overclocking with that board; running 4+1 power phase is bad enough, but running 4+1 power phase on an MSI board is worse (even if it is heatsinked); these boards easily blow up with power-hungry x6's overclocked because MSI is known to skimp out on mosfets. It's happened twice already to OCN members with the 890GXM-G65 and the x6. I don't recommend you overclock at all sadly.

Theres some of those boards that catch fire but maybe with a bios update and a good cooled box , I think it could handle it and its pretty cold around Quebec

I really don't think ambient temperatures matter here, a lot of 4+1's struggle already trying to provide that kind of power even if the heat output isn't too much. And cooling is often an issue, with people's tower heatsinks blowing air over and around the mosfets but not at them.
