Need help with Phenom II X6 1055T OC.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
First off, let me inform you that I'm a noob when it comes to overclocking. So there's a lot of things I didn't understand in the guide that's posted on here that I found. So I was wondering if someone could make this a little more simpler for me to understand, maybe even help me out with overclocking my CPU. I would like to try and get it to 3.5GHz.

Here is my System Specifications:

Motherboard: ASUS M4A87TD
GPU: Sparkle GTX 460
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1055T
HDD: Seagate Barricuda 1TB
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Pro
MEM: G. Skill DDR3 1600 4gb
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W

I understand that there's a whole club and topic about OC'ing the 1055T, but as I stated above, I'm a noob to OC'ing and I barely understood much of what was being talked about, so again, I would like as much information as possible to learn.

Thank you.

Ok. Here the breakdown on that you need to know for ocing any athlon II and phenom II cpu on air.
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.

Also you should be able to get 3.5 without raising voltage. I actually lowered the stock voltage of 1.325 down to 1.29 area at 3.6ghz. That will very with each chip and mobo though. Just remember that as you raise the FSB, to get your OC, to keep memory speeds and HT Link and NB speed all in stock ranges. You will have to change those manually cuz raising FSB will increase those things. Then once you get a stable OC you want then you can find the sweet spots for NB and memory. Leave HT Link around 200o. Hope you get the advise you need, I need to hit the sack.

You should do 3.5GHz with less than 1.3V. At least on a decent cooling system, which you do have.

I've managed to do nearly 3.75 on stock voltages

NB at 3GHz will give you a very nice performance boost without almost any temperature rise. I'm talking of a good 6-7% performance increase in multithreaded applications.

I have a X6 1055T and here's my setting's that i used, if it helps you

FSB: 300
CPU Freq: 4200
NB: 3000
HT: Can't remember
Memory: 1620MHz @ CL9
CPU VCore: 1.52V
CPU-NB: 1.35V
SB/HT: 1.28V
CPU/PLL: 2.58V
DRAM: 1.71V
NB: 1.3V
Please be aware that I still need to fine tune this OC of mine and is only about 80-90% Stable, But it still allow's me to play my games like Crysis just fine without crashing or any BSOD's

I'll post my two settings fyi aswell

Parameters in stock values unless specified otherwise.


Power-savvy config:

3.5GHz, 1.27V.
CPU-NB 1.325V
FSB at 250MHz 14x multiplier
HT Link at 2GHz
NB Link at 2.5GHz
DRAM at 1666MHz, 6-6-6-18-21 1.68V. They're Elpida MNH-E Hyper, so no surprise here.


Performance config:
CPU at 4050MHz, 1.44V
CPU-NB 1.325V
FSB 301MHz 13.5x multiplier
HT Link 1800MHz
NB Link 3GHz
DRAM 1600MHz 6-6-6-18-21 1.68V



Both are 100% stable and able to fold 24/7.

So far, testing it out, I've got my CPU to 3.7GHz. I'm not sure if I should attempt to hit 4.0GHz, especially on air. I just have a paranoia about it. What do you all suggest?

Also, once again, I just want to say thank you to everyone that helped me out on this. I really appreciate it. I'm definitely going to spend a lot more time here.
