time to OC Phenom II X6 1055t, first time OCer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
well, as title says, its time for me to OC my Phenom II X6 1055t. it will be my first time OCing anything, i would like to get a solid 3.2>4.0 ghz clock.

first thing is i know i need a new cpu cooler.
my budget on that is $100+-. however im not sure what one to get, recommendations would be great.

next is, what do i set my cpu voltage to?

next question, how exactly do i OC a cpu? do i do it in the bios? use a program?

all of my system info should be in my sig. thank you for your advice.

You need to do the OCing in Bios, any program might cause trouble. You OC the cpu by raising the FSB from the stock 200 bit by bit wich increases overall Memory speed, HT and NB frequencies and of cource the CPU frequency. All those have their own multipliers wich multiply the FSB. Whenever you get a bit unstable you raise the Vcore a bit.

Max Vcore is 1.55v and while stress testing make sure max temperature is 55c or under. 62c is absolute max.

Max Vcore is 1.55v and while stress testing make sure max temperature is 55c or under. 62c is absolute max.
Plus these rules of thumb.
1) Max cpu voltage is 1.55v.
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 or under to stock speed.
