Advice required on OC my 1090T and RAM - Page 2

Keep it at stock.
Never OC a Phenom II x6 on an unheatsinked 4+1 power phase. That is just an inexcusable excuse for danger and flame death right there.
Underclock it actually, since you're running a tower cooler and the mosfets don't get any cooling whatsoever. Keep it that way until you can find some Enzotech MOS-C1 or something.

Don't make me bring out the horror stories.
I didnt toast my cpu, but did toast my motherboard, MSI 790FX-GD70. Is the Biostar TA890FXE safe? I believe its 4+2 phases

Yeah, that Biostar is safe. In fact it's one of the best overclocking motherboards there is. I've seen Gappo running his X6 at 5.4+GHz on that board without any problems.

I've been lucky so far that my GD70 hasn't been toasted yet with the OC I'm running.

I still vote the lanparty boards some of the best overclockers ever.
sad that DFI is out of the consumer line.

Yeah I was pouring 1.56v into it and cpu was plenty cool maxing out at 52-54c, got a good HS and fan combo, but apparently the mosfets couldn't handle it. When I took off the mosfet heatsink there was some liquid stuff on one of them.

I've benched pretty hard on this board too. I've been up to 4.65GHz @1.56v on air and I still haven't killed it yet, but I will soon

DFI did make some epic overclocking boards.

Are you able to monitor the mosfet temp? Cuz I always monitored all the temps that speedfan or HW Monitor showed me and none ever got out of control when I zapped mine. Or are the mosfets not hooked up to any sensors?

The TA890FXE is a much safer 6+2 phases I believe.
790FX-GD70 is a 4+1 phase. Blowing it up is not unexpected. From what I've seen some GD-70s are rock solid, others can easily take the blow above 1.5V.

Thread Starter 
OK so now I'm paranoid about OCing my CPU (until I get a new board at least)

What about my ram though? It's 1600 and currently running at 1333. I have an option in my bios to run it at 1600 instead of it's current setting (auto) which sets it at 1333.

Is that all I would need to do?

I have no idea why the 1600Mhz multi would just set it back to 1333 again.
You can overclock the ref. clock on the current memory multiplier if you absolutely can't get the 1600Mhz multi to run, around 240Mhz should do (240x6.67=1600Mhz).
