Overclocking 1090T that easy???

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Im very new to overclocking, and i currently have a ghetto Athelon 64 X2 3800+ @ 2.009, with a Dell BIOS, so i dont have any experience. I recently just switched my views from getting a Intel, to an AMD. It just sounds like it will be easier, and it might run a little better. Im looking to get a 1090T, and i want to OC to 4Ghz. Is it true you only have to change the multiplier and the CPU Voltage? If thats the case, its hands down the best processor im looking to get. Im in the process of deciding between a 1055 and a 1090. Any suggestions? This is mainly for FSX, which is a huge CPU whore, and 6 cores would make that thing haul. Im also in need of a new mobo, so any suggestions would be awsome, looking to get it from newegg, possibly tiger direct. Ill send you all a link and you can tell me if its good or not anyway, thanks for your alls help!

if you are going to use a cpu-heavy program then 1090t is the way to go. overclocking that cpu is rather easy. since it is a cpu with unlocked multiplier, you can use that and also raised fsb value to get a very sexy OC out of it. And if you oc your cpu-nb along with your cpu, you will get even better memory performance. But we can discuss that later.
First things first.....
Both of the 1st and 3rd deals are good. In the first deal you will get a better motherboard ( which costs a bit more), If you are planning to buy multiple graphics cards then this is your pick.
The third one is also good but it doesnt support 16x crossfire (you wont need that if you are not gonna use multiple graphics cards).

Given the fact FSX doesnt rely much on GPU's, i wont have to worry about more than one GPU. I think i will probably go with the one from Tiger Direct. As far as OC'ing goes, so it is more than just raising the multiplier and the voltage? If im messing with the NorthBridge and the Front Side Bus, thats memory voltage and more stuff to go along with it? Im sure you guys can help me out on that though

Yep, its a bit more than just multipliers. To get a stable OC one must consider several facts. And you wont have to bother about the northbridge, its the cpu-nb which will determine your memory bandwidth. But they will came later........ first about building the setup.
I am not much familiar with the tigerdirect mobo. You can take a look at the mobo I am using right now..... Asus M4A88TD-V-EVO/USB3........ its a gr8 mobo and is known to work well with 1090T. If it fits the budget, get the mobo and the cpu seperately. This mobo is ideal for overclocking.

I saw that mobo on a tutorial once, looks nice. For $20 more i dont see why not. Just for that CPU and Mobo its comeing around $350 subtotal. Keep in mind i have 2 crappy DDR2 things of memory at 1gb each. So thats going to reqire some more money to put into. Does the quality of the memory make a huge factor when overclocking?

Yeah, you will have to spend some more money for the ddr3 memory modules. As for quality, modules with good chip (which can handle a lil bit of oc on its own and has low latency values) will give you freedom while OCing. You will be able to push the fsb without worrying too much about unstability with memory. Right now, ddr3 prices have dropped quite a bit. While shopping for ram, try to get something with low latency values ( cas 7). "Corsair XMS3 1600MHz cas 7" and "GSkill Ripjaws 1600MHz Cas 7" are pretty good memory modules.

Buy a better board with 8XX chipset. 7xx chipset boards(ASUS) will limit your CPU/NB freq. OC . I had the Crosshair III and couldn't pass 2800, but once I bought the Crosshair IV, I was able to hit 3400+

But don't think for a second that you can reach IOSEFINI-like numbers without quality CPU cooling and/or low ambient temperatures .

Looks very nice! Any ideas for a badass cooler that might fit into an Antec 902? That seems to be my biggest problem, space.. Given the fact my CASE has 6 fans alone, i dont think i even need to water cool
