overclocking my amd 1055T..help?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hi everyone here is my new specs (got a new mobo btw)

AMD Phenom II 1055T Six Core Processor 2.80ghz (oc to 3.2ghz)
-ASUS crosshair IV mobo
-evga gtx 580 oc edition video card
-12gb ddr3 corsair 1333mhz
-windows 7 64 bit home premium
-cool master 922 case
-corsair 750w power supply with 80 plus
-22 inch benq led monitor

my friend emailed me his specs to oc the cpu to now 4.0ghz and he has the same mobo and cpu processor here is what he emailed me but note he told me to do it in asus turbo V:
cpu frequency : 286
cpu voltage: 1.475
cpu/nb voltage : 1.45
dram voltage : 1.75

when i try it and press apply the computer just freezes and i have to reboot by pressing reset.why does it freeze in the first place?
..should i do it from the bios then?
also in the bios i can use the same numbers but i dont know exactly where to put it ...any help would be great...i really do want to oc but i have never done it in bios..

thanks

Apparently your friend doesnt know too much about overclocking..

Do it in bios, never use programs to OC. And instead of putting those numbers there you should slowly OC it there, seeing how your cpu does.

Some tips here: 1.55vcore is max for air, Keep socket temps under 55c, keep HT-link as close as 2000 and NB frequency between 2500 - 3000.

Your increasing voltages for a 400 mhz overclock????!!!?!?!?!?!?!!??!?!



No, no, no ......

I have a 1055t @ 3.5ghz on ****stock voltage***.

All you have to change is the bus speed (default 200mhz) and it will go up by 14x the amount you change it by (hence why it's called the "multiplier")

Change the bus speed to 250 mhz for a 3.5 ghz overclock and keep everything else on auto/stock. Then change the memory speeds to match the factory settings. (my 1600mhz ram runs at 1667 cause of this, but it's ok)

Zackcy wow the way you said no no no , i almost fell off my seat along with those faces lol.
ok so your saying in the bios dont touch any voltages just the bus speed to 250 which equals 3.5ghz but right now i have it at 3.26ghz how much difference will i see in gaming or etc...
what about memory speed mines is at 1333mhz...what should i put that to...
to be honest i am trying to learn to overclock but never did it in bios, my pal did it....

Are you using the stock heatsink? If you are, 3.6 GHz is probably as far as you should try to go. If you have a decent aftermarket heatsink, you can probably hit 4 GHz.

Definitely OC in the BIOS! It's too easy not to, haha. You can try to hit 3.5/3.6 on stock voltages. If it isn't stable, or if you want to OC farther, you can start playing with the voltage. I don't need as much voltage for 4.1/3000 CPU-NB as your friend told you to use for 3.2.

You'll see more of a difference in games by OC'ing your CPU-NB, too. You should easily be able to hit 2400-2600 MHz. 2800-3000 MHz is probably the sweet spot. You can try to OC your ram, but if it's rated for 1333 you probably won't get it much beyond that.

Try these settings
turn off turbo c1e and cool and quiet
286x14
cpu nb at 2228
ht link at 2005
memory at default speed/timing/volts
1.2 nb volts
1.325 cpu nb volts
1.475 cpu vcore
also 1.75 volts for memory is INSANE.........

It's harder to overclock larger amounts of RAM also,so you will be limited with what speeds you can run 12GB at.

Did you try my settings?
Did they work?
Do you have the latest bios for the board?

4.0 "stable" is actually harder than it seems with 1055t.
Stable, meaning for 24/7 SMP Folding all 6 cores 100% load max 45c.

Memory timings made a big difference for me.
my Stock timings are supposed to be 8-9-8
I had to go 9-9-9-24-33-1t

Also I was raking up my V core to like 1.5+ before I fixed my Mem timings and HT/NB. Now I'm at 1.45
I found stability by, HT down to like 2000ish
and leave NB around 2800ish

Even then I had a few freezes hours in to folding

dropped FSB from 286 (4004)4.0
to 273 (3822)3.8
May not be 4.0 But its Rock Solid, 1000mhz over stock base of 2.8.

Read this thread it has good stuff in it:
http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/84...le-4ghz-2.html

To do a Quik stability test, (not as good P95) use Cinebench.
you will BSOD if not close to a sweet spot.

Good luck Man, remeber every Chip is differnt
