Im just trying to figure out if I should just increase the multi or take the multi to 17-18 and increase the FSB, also still not sure what to do with voltage, do I just up it a lil here and there to maintain stability or if it wont boot just up it? I also know that I want to OC NB to increase the speed of memory but dont know what to shoot for there. Any info or bios specs would be very much appreciated. I want to do this on my own but I need help and a good fresh place to start, My rig is in sig. Thank you in advanced and have a great day.
Here is a real good thread that will teach how to OC the right way http://www.overclock.net/amd-general/525113-phenom-ii-overclocking-guide.html
it will also give you a good path to follow. It does take a little time and some studying/research but it covers the basics very nicely.
Some setting to shoot for,
Maintain HTT (HT Link on CPUZ) at 2000MHz (+/-) 100MHz
Raise NB Freq as high as possible (2600-3000MHz)
With a 1090T a Ref Clock of 250 is plenty
Make small adjustments in voltage than stress test w/prime95 in between
Remember it should pass 12-24 hrs of prime95 to be completely stable
Vcore max of 1.55v, Max safe 24/7 of 1.5v
Keep CPU Socket temp max of 55c but read this thread and decide for yourself http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/931241-interesting-information-amd-about-1090t.html
A 4.0GHz OC should be be around 1.38-1.4v Vcore
A 3000MHz NB Freq voltage around 1.35-1.4v depending on ram timings
Take the time to study the link above and find your own settings as they will differ between setups. I listed what works on my setup but yours will probably be different. Start out low and work your way up. OC the CPU by it self and keep notes. Than OC mobo by it self and add to cpu OC. Next OC NB Freq and than last OC Ram. Tightening the ram will also add big benny's as well. If you'd like any more help feel free to PM me.
