Need Info on best way to OC M4A87TD/USB3 - Page 2

post #11 of 24

For between $50 & $100 and without constraint I simply recommend that you tank your cash on one of these:

- $85 shipped
You could probably get good results as well (not as good but pretty close) with coolers closer to or below the $50 mark such as the Scythe Mugen 2.

now this cpu cooler can mount with fan facing up/down right? if side to side then i dont see how my RAM fan would mount lol, so after getting this, and you seen the RAM and CPU specs, getting the 87td evo, what is possibilities then? what you recommend timings n all that settings to be set at? Prime95 is the main stress test right? as said i am still a nooblet lol but willing to learn. So set the system settings to be sure its stable to boot windows then run prime95 for complete stability and if fails then restart with different settings all over right? is there a certain utility that can be used to set those settings in windows? or its better off from BIOS?

Most RAM can fit under the NH-D14 (G.Skill Ripjaws and Mushkin Frostbyte do fit); you can use this link for reference to see if whatever RAM you have will fit under. I think if you try mounting it down-up it will either smash with the top of your case or your video card and not be as optimal anyway. I believe the Dominators are listed as compatible if you remove the "top cooler" from them - this may mean RAM fan. Corsair's Dominator GT likely has a highly binned case of Elpida BBSE - which means aside from 2000 9-10-9 (which wouldn't really be worth it at all once again) you could probably do 1600 6-7-6 on those quite nicely or 1800 7-8-7 which would be a good compromise.

Additionally, here is an image for reference. Perhaps it will prove useful.

Note that the front fan is elevated by about .25" to clear the RAM module.

so basically set it as base setting of 1600 with 6 7 6, Not to mention that in Bios, there is only 1067.1333 and 1600 Memory settings, there is no 2000.. its just to be OC'd to 2000 from 1600 by uping fsb as you know that. So when OCing this.. set at 1600 6 7 6 and up the speed? or?

You will have to up the ref. clock to get to 2000Mhz. It's a given. AMD memory multipliers support up to 1600Mhz. The company rates their memory controllers at a more relaxed 1333Mhz, but they're fairly capable indeed.

when you were talking about the 4+1, what exactly are you talking about on that xd_1771?

The VRMs/Power Phase (consisting of the PWM, chokes and mosfets) is to the left of the CPU, and regulates all power to the CPU.
More power phases is much better for 125W chips overclocked - reason being:
-More stable power to the CPU
-Less fire risk
-Further overclock
-More voltage tolerance
-Runs much cooler
For heavy overclocking (i.e. 1.5-1.55V) I additionally recommend that there be mosfet heatsinks to assist with the cooling of the VRMs.

Alright xd_1771, i just found out that the M4A87td EVO is same as this board i have and only difference is that it has 2x PCI Express x16 and the one i have just has 1, only reason i asked ASUS is that because my board even says TurboV EVO. And yes i should have bought the other one due to fact it has one more PCI Ex slot.
