New OC'er (me) needs help! 1055t.

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hi!

So I have started to OC my 1055t beyond 3,6ghz (which made me to start tweak all configurations, I can run 3,6ghz by just going FSB 260).

Anyway, I managed to get it to boot at 4ghz, and it starts and all that.
But when I'm running stability tests the computer freezes, one windows at the time, I even got a BSoD once.

This is my first OC and I would really like to get it to stable 4ghz and to learn how to OC so I appreciate your help.

What do I need to tweak to get it stable? Can it be all from the CPU/NB VID to RAM Latencies and everything there between?

I have read: http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/88...ing-guide.html

What's the best tips/tricks when OC'in and figuring out how to get it stable? Any particular pattern I should follow?

Thank you advance! Hope you can help me.

cheers

What are your overclock settings? If possible, can you provide us with picture's of your BIOS? if you can't... Just post the reference setting's that you used to get to 4.0GHz and We will help you from there

Ah darn, I reseted it to default and just changed to HTT/FSB to get to 3,6ghz, so I don't have the old settings left

Could you possibly tell me what values to put where? And I'll do that, and from there I can update this thread if it's stable or not, and from there on we can work work work til I get it stable?


Thanks in advance!

CPU Freq: 4004
NB Freq: 2860
HT Freq: 2004MHz
DRAM: 1520MHz CL 9-9-9-24 2T Command Rate
CPU VCore 1.5V
NB Voltage: 1.28V
CPU-NB: 1.37
DRAM: 1.72V

Most importantly!!!!! Make sure your CPU tempature does not go above 62C

55C is the most preferable tempature.

Also make sure that there are heatsink's on your mosfet's because the more you increase your CPU voltage, the more strees your mosfet's are going under as well.

Thank you, will try this when I have time ;p.

How do I see if I've got a heatsink on my mosfets? Or is that something I have to buy and not included with the mobo?

thanks

The mosfet's are located in the picture where you see Ultra Durable they are located underneath the heatsink

Okay, I see thank you.

But how do I add a heatsink to them? Or is the "Ultra Durable" the heatsink?
Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions but I'm a little new to this .

My motherboard is Gigabyte 870A-UD3 if that helps.

thanks in advance

You can get small heatsink fins on the web somewhere. I'm not sure where to find them right now because I probably don't live in your country so it's quite different. You might be able to find them on Newegg is your in the US

And that picture was as reference only, I can't find any good picture's bu that the only one I found to try and show you where the mosfet's are which is located under the heatsink which says "Ultra Durable" on top

Oh okay, so additional costs , I thought I only needed a new CPUcooler.

So the "Ultra Durable" thing isnt the heatsink?

Here's a picture of my motherboard's mosfets.



So what I need to do is to buy heatsinks for these mosfets?

Do I REALLY have to do this or is it optional?

thanks once again

The mosfet's are the tiny black chips behind the big black square boxes which are called the Chokes...

It's optional yes but if your going to do some overclocking which would mean you might need to do a little overvolting, than that means your mosfet's are going to burn up like crazy... Yeah can do it, but you would probably have a good few months before your motherboard might give way beacuse they will burn out eventually.

It's entirely up to you, There's no need for the heatsink, but it's highly recommended if your going to overclock/overvolt though
