Extremely disappointed 1055t, 215 max FSB - Page 2

Voltage after droop is around 1.26v, ran prime 95 for like 15 minutes and it was fine then headed to work.

PS. That BIOS wasn't an option for me on the ASUS site for my board....am I missing something? My version says it is as of Sept/2010 and it supports all new processors..don't forget the USB version has different BIOs's
IMHO, any board without a heatsink on the MOSFETs is not a board you want to OC an AMDx6 on....and I honestly wouldn't even buy a board with only a 4-pin CPU power today when OCing, forget about a power hungry chip like a Thuban.

Before you start overclock, you need to take control of those crazy tempature's, 62C is the limit of these processor's, and 55C is when error's will start kicking in with unstable overclock's.

Get a better aftermarket cooler or double check if your's is working correctley then start overclocking otherwise your going to have a dead chip

Did you say your NB is at 1800? Thats way too low and probably causing most of your instability. Try to get it up to 2600-2800mhz, and also re-seat your HSF to try and get better temps.

I wouldn't just arbitrarily up the memory voltage up to 1.65v from 1.5v. You really shouldn't have to up mem voltage by more then the tiniest bit on most occasions.

I was planning on tightening the timings, thats why and I read all that FAQ's stating 1.65v is ok for most memory.

As for OC, should I really up the HT? Doesnt that require a NB/Chipset voltage increase?

And yes I know the temps aren't good. Overclock from 2.8-3.4 caused a 3* increase in temp, since I kept the voltage the same. I will pick up a Hyper 212 tonight, and go from there.

Thank you all very much for your help. BTW MB temp is very low, like ambient always, should I still be worrying?

You shouldnt OC at all with those temps. One should never go above 55c when overclocking.

Dont up the HT, up the NB. Keep your HT-link as close as 2000 as possible.

It isn't the motherboard temp but the MOSFET temp. Those critters are DC-DC converters and get wicked hot, as in you'll burn your finger touching them...hence why good boards have a heatsink on them.

Weird.....so what influences there temp, bus speed increase? Say I am running LESS voltage than most of you run on my components, shouldn't I be safe, theoretically?

I just built the PC and don't want to shell out for a new MB. Would a fan do anything? (extra 120 side fan)

What are these heatsinks then?

One is the southbridge, is the other not the mosfets?

/thread. I always tell people never to buy generic 1333 CL9 because of 1. this 2. there's always something better for the same price.
The Hyper 101A is probably better than stock and would get you some ways, but it's really not that good either.

I would think it is also the board. Not that the board itself won't allow you to overclock that far, but the unheatsinked 4+1 power phase may lead to some complication later on and potential failure. Thus you shouldn't be overclocking at all. Also, the VRMs (comprising of the mosfets, chokes, etc.) are to the left of the CPU socket.

Even if the x6 has a 125W TDP the same as the x4 processors, they are the heaviest on the power phase/VRMs and will bring them to hell and back in 90% of cases, which is why you will need reliable mosfets for overclocking x6 processors. A lot of 4+1 boards have blown up on overclocked x6 processors - particularly MSI ones - whether heatsinked or not.

Pao is also right. If you require more than 1.5V for 1333 CL9 (1.5V should be an absolute maximum for 1333 CL9 which is a JEDEC-specified setting), I would immediately consider your RAM DOA and prepare for an RMA or return.
