1055T First time overclocking.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Well I have done a lot of reading around this board on how to overclock the 1055T and no matter what I do I reach mid 60s (which is too high from my understanding) with prime95 though it has always been stable.

Idles at about 33*C

My Specs are in my signiture

Here are my current BIOS settings:

I haven't touched any of the ram timings. Not sure what to do there.

FSB: 286
Multiplier: 14x
DRAM Freq: 1520mhz
HT Link: 2002 mhz
CPU/NB: 2860 mhz

CPU Voltage: 1.5
CPU-NB Voltage: 1.37
DRAM Voltage: 1.65
NB Voltage: 1.28

What should I do? I really want to stay at the 4ghz mark.

Check the mounting of the cooler
Also case airflow

On my chip I can get 4 ghz easy on 1.404 volts and 1.5 is about max rated voltage which is alot. I don't know if you just threw your voltage straight to 1.5 or you tested up to 1.5 but if you just threw it way up there maybe try bringing it back down.

Firstly thanks for the quick replies.

Ill check it out in a moment. Airflow should be fine, though I will be getting 1 more 120mm fan to put on the side which should help out cooling the Heatsink.

Ive tried volts in between 1.4 and 1.5 and I am pretty much seeing the same result.

I agree with this and also the TIM application. If those fail, a better cooler will do the trick.

*Noticed you have the 6950, check this out if you want a free 6970!

Noctua NH-U12P-SE is meant to be a great cooler, it should be doing the trick.

Yeah I have been meaning to mod my 6950 but I was planning to do it after I have successfully overclocked my CPU.

the u12p isn't bad, though it's not as strong as the d14. also 1.5 is pretty high for 4.0. what steps did you take when overclocking your cpu?

also, for your 6950, there's a new way to do it w/ AB and a bios mod instead of change to 6970, too early in the morning here, pm me and i'll help you out tomorrow

Pretty much just searched around, read some random threads and wrote some numbers down for a 4GHZ overclock. Then just punched all the numbers in, disabled all the necessary settings and ran prime 95. THen I went lower to 3.8 and then to 3.5ghz but seem to always end up with a mid 60s temperature.

FSB: 286MHz
CPU: 4004MHz
RAM: 1526MHz CL9
Northbridge: 2860MHz
HT: 2002MHz
CPU VCCore: 1.5V
NB: 1.28V
DRAM: 1.7V
CPU-NB: 1.38V

CPU Load: 53C
CPU Idle: 22C

Never read from the Core tempature's though, it's misleading.

I used a CoolIT Vantage A.L.C CPU Cooler btw.

Hope this helps

It's not really the speed that determines the temps, but the voltage. You'll probably see a 5-10C load difference between 1.4v and 1.5v.
