Asus EVO & PhenomIIx4 underperforming???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I've just upgraded my gaming rig with the following bits:

Asus M4A79XTD EVO
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition @ 3.2Ghz
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600

I feel that things aren't running as they should. Not feeling a great deal more than my Athlon64 Venice! Maybe my expectations!!!???


The board supports upto 5200 MHz FSB and the processor 3600 MHz. What's the easiest way to bump things up a bit?

Here's some CPU-Z

It was a bit of a rush job that got thrown together in a day!

Any help would be much appreciated. grouphug.gif

As cbr600 said, go into bios and disable cool & quiet, than set dram freq to 800 and manually enter timings. After that with a PHII BE you have the option of just raising the cpu multiplier and increasing the vcore after it becomes unstable. This thread should help you out too. http://www.overclock.net/amd-general/525113-phenom-ii-overclocking-guide.html read this through and make small increases and stress test with prime95 for a bit for each increase. You'll need to pass 12 hrs of prime95 when you've reached your goal to be assured of stability.

If you'd like any more suggestions feel free to PM me.

Memory speed is not at rated. That and you're running XP, XP can be fast on nearly any machine.
