newb needs help with 1055t overclock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm sorta new to overclocking so if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.
So I've had my 1055t for a few weeks now, and i'm not quite happy with the 2.8ghz clock speed of it. I'm into emulation, specifically dolphin (gc/wii emu) and i wouldn't mind overclocking my cpu to get a bit of a speed boost.
I'm using the stock heatsink (lol) and air cooling (one fan for psu and one for cpu) I wouldn't mind getting this thing up around the 3.3ghz mark as this is how fast it is when the amd 'turbo core' thingo is activated and i figure this should be safe. Just so you know, I have done some preliminary testing with ASUS TurboV EVO, an overclocking application that my asus motherboard uses without going into the bios, and i did an 'auto overclock' which is only temporary and isn't really that stable. I got it up to 3.248ghz but i wasn't convinced the application had actually overclocked it in the correct manner.
So i want to go into the bios and do it myself so i know what i'm actually changing and what it's doing to my system.
Do you guys have any suggestions on how i can get to around 3.3ghz, and if you think i can go higher safely, just say so . I've done a bit of reading and i'm not too confident on changing voltages and whatnot by myself without some advice first as i read that voltage increases are what cause excess heat and i don't really want that with air cooling. If you need any more info just ask and i'll post.

you can easily overclock it to 3.7ghz without changing any voltages

here is an informative video to get you started

Thanks mate for the video, too easy!

Got it to 3.5ghz without any problems, i thought it would be a little bit more complicated with the voltages but i'm glad it wasn't

You will be able to get a decent overclock with that board but if you really want to stretch the legs on that fine CPU you have there, it's time to upgrade. Good luck!

Don't push it too far on that mobo. Make sure you are either using the stock cooler or have some sort of mosfet heatsink on there. 4+1 power phase + 125W x6 is pretty dangerous, save for on better board brands. Don't ever exceed 1.45-1.5V.
