Best air cooling for a 1090T?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I plan to OC my 1090T to around 4.0GHZ and I'm looking for an air cooler that is under $100. I have a few questions

1. Can air allow the 1090T to hit 4.0GHZ?
2. Is the 1090T easy to OC?
3. Once I do hit 4.0GHZ, will I be able to run it at that speed for everyday usage like gaming?
4. What air cooler is the best bang for the buck (or punch for the pound for you Brits out there XD) for this chip? Please list the price too.
5. Can anyone direct me to a good, solid guide to OCing this chip?

TY all and sorry for my extreme noobishness.

I have that chip, I use a hyper212 from coolermaster - $30 on newegg (i recommend another 120mm fan for push pull)

The thing OC's like a breeze, just go into your bios and up your multiplier, after that, you might want to overvolt a little bit to stabilize, but other than that it np. remember to turn off turbo core, as it might still try to convert to 3.6/3 cores still

I used the turbo core voltage as my guide for how much to overvolt. good luck!

EDIT: I use the push/pull config, at 4.0 on all six cores and usually see 23-28C idle and 32-40C under load (if you were curious)

Ok...
1. Yes, air can get you to 4 GHz.
2. Very ez to OC Phenom II X6 1090t.
3. Yes, you will be able to run it at that setting for everyday usage aslong as it is stable. Use stress tests such as Prime95 and OCCT to test for stability.
4. Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler is a good choice. Price on the Egg comes in at $109.99 though, so it is a little bit over $100. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-018-_-Product
5. A fairly solid guide on the Phenom II I found online a little while back is @... http://www.techreaction.net/forums/showthread.php?t=367 Don't know if the X6s are much different then the ones in this link but this might help none the less.

Hope this helped

Something that was not mentioned but is worth taking into account is that the size of the cooler COULD interfere with some motherboard's memory slots. I do not know if that is the case with this cooler but with some setups people have had problems with using very tall RAM or RAM Coolers. Just thought I'd warn you in case you didn't take that into consideration.

Good luck on hitting 4Ghz.

If you only want to hit 4.0GHz (easy on the 1090t) then you don't need an NH-D14. I would opt for a Arctic Freezer 7 Pro rev.2. Anything else would be overkill in my opinion.
