OC in process need suggestions

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Alright guys so starting to OC tonight I haven't done anything except turn C&Q off adjusted the multiplier to x19and I'm at 3.8 I tried x20 to get 4.0 but LinX pulled an error.

I'm thinking changing the voltages around and such will get me to the 4.0 mark but I just havent looked into that much so any suggestions as what to up next will be great.

LinX ran for 15 mins no errors at 3.8 and temps didn’t reach much over 44.

I will shut down and go x19.5 and run the test while I wait replies thanks all.

after you get to a certain point, you'll have to lower your northbridge speed and ram speed as well.

Ok so right now 3.8 is what I'm going to have to stick with.

LinX stopped right about 14 mins into a 15 min run running at 3.9.

Any suggestions to get the best OC still looking to get around 4.0. Max temps only hit 45 running at 3.9 so even being air cooled I have a feeling I can still reach the 4.0 mark.

what voltage are you using on the cpu? Are you only overclocking your cpu, or are you overclocking your ram and/or northbridge as well?

Well I'm wanting to get the best performance out of what I have really but this is my first OC and don’t want to mess with too much without a second opinion. I have done a ton of research but every system is different so it's really hard to tell what to set everything to on a first try lol.

Here is a pic of the BIOS screen


The only thing in BIOS I have touched would be the CPU multiplier at x19 and the CPU host clock control is set to manual but still set at stock.

On your cooling I doubt you will hit 4.0, but who can say...as you said, every system is different and certainly every AMD chip can be very different.

Read my guide for an intro to modern AMD overclocking. It is still a WIP and wont tell you everything but it explains the components and processes involved in overclocking a modern AMD chip.

Hope this helps

Glad to hear you find the guide useful! PM me if you need clarification on anything.

About cooling, if you have an extra $30 to spare get a rasa rs240 kit rather than an h70. I am making that upgrade soon myself and I am told it is worlds better than the h70. It also provides the option for upgrade later...though it does require a little maintenance now and then and is more time consuming to set up. Just a thought
