M4A79XTD EVO FSB Wall?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, I'm about the get a better cooler for my CPU so I could OC higher, but I've heard that this board has a FSB wall around 250 - 260. So, is there any way to pass this wall? And when you hit the wall, does it goto windows and crash or just refuse to boot OS at all?

If you hit a wall you can clear cmos to reset.to get past the wall you could lower your mulitiplier and set a amount above the wall,sometimes you can hit a wall for say 50mhz,but just jump up in 10's to see where it ends.NOTE!-MULTIPLIER MUST BE LOWERED TO A LEVEL TO ACCOUNT FOR THE EXTRA FSB.Say your multi is at 16x,lower it to 10x-i.e 300mhz x10 will be 3ghz which is'nt insane,find the level the wall vanishes then work on your overclock from there.

People have OC'ed 1055T to 4Ghz on it before.
I don't know where you got the FSB wall news, the 790X chipset is rock solid. I'm running at 300Mhz bus clock, I don't crap out until around 312Mhz. I can even run a 3000Mhz NB on this chipset, normally not possible unless on 800 series.

Alright thanks for help. I got the FSB wall from a few reviews, and almost all of them said the MOBO tanks around 250 or so.

Tried it myself tho, I'm at 265 and no wall whatsoever yet, so I guess some boards are worse than others..
