Gigabyte 890gpa-ud3h Overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been lurking for a while now but I can't find any solution to my problem. I'll give the run down of the problem then my system specs.

So when I overclock the first time it works, not nessacearly stable but bootable. When I test the stability and it crashes I can no longer even boot with any overclock. The overclock protection kicks on and stops any progress. I was curious if there is a reason for this that might be an easy fix. I have a 3.5 ghz stable overclock and once I go for higher with a failure it then becomes unstable.

System:
CPU: amd x6 1055t
Cooler: Zalman 9700led 110mm
Motherboard: 890gpa-ud3h
Ram: 8gig Geil Black Dragon 1333mhz
Power: XFX Black 750watt
Video: Sapphire Toxic 5850 1GB

What voltages are you running? You might need to increase the cpu voltage to get higher than 3.5. Im not sure about the overclock protection but I would imagine it would disable after the BIOS settings are changed one more time. So try increase your voltages and see if you get any luck.(Unless your voltages are too high already, check your temps in BIOS.)

It's really not sure if it has much to do with the actual stability of the overclock or the functionality of the board. It's a real pain when you can't guess and check with you overclocks. It stinks to have to clear CMOS just to get a once perfect OC to be stable because you wanted to push for a little more.

I have tried vcore of 1.5v but no higher. I don't want to go any higher because of my air cooling. It's possible it is my ram timings keeping the OC protection from allowing me to boot. But I'm not sure.

Ya that would be time consuming. Make sure you write down your values so you can put them in faster.

Im with you, i denfity would not want to go to a higher vcore than 1.5v. About the ram, is it at 1.65v? Sometimes its undervoltated stock and why you apply the core X it isnt enough to boot.

RAM might be holding you back there with the ref. clock OC, looks like it's generic 1333 RAM. Don't bother running any more than 1.5V unless you're going to be running at better than generic settings.
