Hello everyone, i have just completed my first build ever, which is exciting enough in itself, but now i have finally, also, popped my OC'ing cherry. here is my system specs:

ASUS M4A79T Deluxe w/AMD 790FX chipset
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T BE 3.2GHz OC'd to 4.0GHz @ 1.52v
Corsair H50 Water-Cooling System for CPU
4Gbs (2x2Gbs) G.Skill DDR3 1333 PC3 10666 RAM chips
Corsair TX650W PSU
XFX Radeon HD 5750
SoundBlaster Audigy SE/LE
1Tb Seagate Barracuda SATA Main HDD
2 secondary HDD's (120Gb/250Gb)

I have achieved this OC by way of multiplier increases and voltage increases. I am running at a voltage of 1.52 on the core, and haven't adjusted any other values. everything is set to automatic. I already know that my voltage is a little high, However, I can't seem to get it stable outside of this voltage with the adjustments i have already made. I ran Prime95 for 4 hours and 45 minutes at this setup and achieved temps/stability @ 55C-60C. i would like to Lower my voltage, while maintaining a stable system, but unfortunately, i am new to all of this. RAM is not overclocked and NB and other things have not been adjusted. If anyone can offer me any help on this, i would be greatly appreciative. Thank you all.

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.

Here's the thing. Everytime i try to up the NB value, it becomes unstable. My HT and NB have been manually set to 2000, and my FSB is at 200. PCIE is at 100, but all of the voltage values are auto adjust. I CAN alter these voltage adjustments, but, i haven't, for fear of breaking something since i don't have any clue what to do with those values.

Try this

CPU.......... 4GHz (250 x 16)--> Enable CnQ
CPU/NB......2600
HT Link.......2000
RAM...........1333, stock timings and voltage
CPU Volt.....1.52V is way too high. Lower it. If your mobo has LLC enable it(in this case set your CPU Volt @ 1.40V, even lower, and raise it little by little if unstable)
CPU/NB Volt...1.25V, if unstable raise it 1 notch at a time till stable

Apparently moving around the tubes on the H50 to a certain position can get you better temps... Phenom II likes running cool, and will take in less voltage for higher overclocks if it can run cooler. Ask SpykeZ about it, he discovered the H50 trick.

I will try those settings and i will def ask spykeZ about the H50 trick, also, a few questions, What is CnQ, and how do i enable it, and 2, What is LLC and how do i find out if it's enabled?

CnQ.....Cool and Quiet ---> BIOS --> CPU Configuration
LLC......Load Line Calibration --> BIOS --> where you adjust the voltages

EDIT: Just checked. Your mobo doesn't have LLC. Why 790FX mobo?

Because, it came with the processor....it was a combo deal on Newegg.com.

Also, just checked MoBo specs online, the only RAM that is able to be OC'd on this is DDR3 1600....1066, and 1333 can be run at default only apparently.

why is the 790FX a bad chipset?
