Help overclocking Phenom II X6 1090T - Page 2

If this is stable what do I have to increase to get a slightly higher OC without overdoing it? Just increase the CPU frequency bit by bit? Or up the voltage a bit first?

they are actually the same to quote twocables

In a 32-bit environment, both Prime95 and Orthos are identical. This is because Orthos is Prime95, but with a different GUI. The reason why Orthos was created is because it provides a superior interface to Prime95.

But in a 64-bit environment, it might be better to use the 64-bit version of Prime95 as it will take full advantage of the system. Unfortunately, there is no 64-bit version of Orthos. It seems to have been left by the wayside.

Now, there is one bad thing about Prime95: when you try to close it, it minimizes to the Notification Area. So to prevent this, open up the prime.txt file, and change "TrayIcon=1" to "TrayIcon=0".

But other than this, they are perfectly identical.

you can either increase your miltiplier or your FSB

- increase multiplier or FSB
- stress test with prime95, I do about atleast 6 hours

or even better you could go with

- increase multiplier or FSB
- run 20 passes of Linx

rinse and repeat until you need to up your voltages

once you get to your desired OC and pass 20 runs of Linx

run prime 95 blend test for at least 6 hours.

Hmm ok sounds simple enough, I might hold off on OC for now though. Since I got a couple comments on how low my temps where I managed to lower my voltage slightly and make them a little cooler while keeping an OC of 4Ghz. I'm idling at 17-18c so I'll see how this turns out first. Thanks for all the help, now I have a couple more programs to help monitor/stress my CPU

+ rep for you guys!

I'd like to ask what your room ambient temp is? With air cooling how can it be the idle temp be that low? You must be inside a deep freeze lol.
You should be using PC Probe or HWMonitor to monitor temps and reading the cpu socket temps and not the core temps.
It's not that i doubt what you report but it is highly unlikely idle temps could be less than ambient temps. Doesn't this make sense?
Give this thread a look over to help explain things a bit and than decide for yourself http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/93...out-1090t.html
I'd also like to see a screen shot of Prime95 (64 bit) after an hour of testing with blend with either of the monitor utilities listed above, and if what you're saying holds true to that, I'm going to cry myself to sleep tonight lol.
Here's a screen shot of of my setup at ambient of 22c. And this is with C&Q enabled too.

I'm visiting family and it is in the 20'F. Now that you mention it that makes a lot of scene. I still havent had a chance to run either of them since I downloaded them but I will do that either later tonight or tomorrow morning and post up a shot of what I got. Will definitely give that a read too!

thats a pretty low ambient temp, but if you do decide to run the test tonight make sure you're up for an hour or so, so you can monitor your temps. I mean either way when your CPU gets to hot safety measures kick in and it'll shut down. But I like to play it safe.

I'll probably wait till tomorrow to run it since it's getting late and the temp is going to drop like crazy for the night. We don't turn the heater on so I want a more accurate day to day test result. I'll definitely stay near my computer when I run the test as I'm very paranoid of something going wrong lol.
