overclocking 1090t help

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am new to the over clocking world and dont know much about it. i was going to try to get my system to 4.0 ghz and wanted to know how i go about doing that. i know about the over clocking system in the bios and the multiplyer is FSB. I dont know what the voltages and stuff should be and stuff like that. I also have ddr3 1333 ram and i wanted to know if i over clock will this burn up my ram. i will link my systems specs to see what you guys think

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
SAPPHIRE 100312SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB
Noctua NH-D14 (cooler)
G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6gps

I also wanted to know if i bought 1600 ram and put it in my board without overclocking it will the ram work. the board and the cpu will only allow 1600 and up O/C. so when my build gets here i wanted to know if 1600 ram will work in my system without having to overclock it at first and maybe it stays at 1333 speeds

Just try upping the multiplier. If it POSTs, either up it again or stress test it in Prime95 until it blue screens or won't POST. Then up the vcore a little bit and repeat until you have a stable overclock. Since the multi is unlocked you shouldn't have to mess with the RAM too much, unless you want to tighten the timings or OC the RAM. For that you'll probably have to up the DRAM voltage, and if that doesn't work, the CPU-NB voltage.

I didn't even touch anything but the multi for mine which is at 3.2 with 1.25v. It's a lot harder when you have a locked multi, like the x4 920 I just came from.

Won't burn your RAM, but your RAM may hold the overclocking back if you use the ref. clock rather than the unlocked multiplier.

First off congrats on the new system. The Crosshair IV is the best amd board out there right now and getting to 4.0 with a 1090T should be no problem at all with your setup. It will take some time to learn your bios as it will be different then most others. I'd suggest reading/studying this thread before digging in to heavily, http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html it will give you a real good idea as to how to OC and in what order, plus it'll give you a path to follow and save a few headaches as well.

For your ram choice I very strongly suggest you make sure it's on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) available at the Asus web site under downloads, to make sure it will be compatible with the Formula as it can be picking about what ram to use. The CHIV can run 2000MHz ram no problem, but it does take a little work, I run 1600MHz OC'd to 1672MHz and have had it up to 1733MHz without any problems at 7-8-7-24-1T timings. So to answer your question yes 1600MHz ram will work at stock settings just fine. (check my rig sig for what I'm using)

Just an FYI, do all your OC'ing in the bios, no utility overclocking. You may also find a lot of good info in the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula/Extreme Club thread. Good group and easy to get good info from.

I'm always happy to help if you need it, and don't be afraid to PM me if you like.

try ocing from multi first and learning voltages and temps before touching FSB and RAM speed/cas. ocing your cpu too high with multi will not kill the ram at most it will kill the CPU and damage the socket of the motherboard ( you have to crank a lot of volts in there to make it happen it will require far less volts to get it stable with multi before you kill it ).

OCing the FSB too high without touching the ram will just make them run faster then it should and cause a lock-up before they burn as the voltages will not change .

and finally if your PC crash you can just go in bios and tweak more every time the settings to get it stable it won't do any damage to the hardware ( If you're not being dumb and giving the components too much volts . )

with the cooler that i listed above do you feel that i will be able to keep my full load temps under 55c. I am a bit afraid of water cooling to to shorts and leaking. ill send a link of my case

Yes, I think a lot of people like the Noctua, and since you won't be messing much with the core clock and using a lot of voltage you'll probably be fine.

These are my current OC settings in the Bios:

AI - Manual
AMD Core - disabled
CPU BUS: 286
PCI = 100
DRAM=1525
HT Link Auto
CPU Vol = 1.45
DRAM Voltage = 1.650

I was told that I should change my NB to at least 3,000 but I haven't done so yet.

I was going to get Noctua DH-14 for my sig rig, but they were sold out at that time. I couldn't wait.


How is it with noise?
