Phenom II X4 820 (How Far can I go?)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I got the phenom x4 820 on Feb 28 and its pretty good.
I was successfully able to get from 2.8ghz to 3ghz. Now my Cpu frequency is at 216 and multiplier is 14 which i didnt touch. I also didnt touch the voltage which is @ 1.300 cause i dont know too much about voltage. My Cpu temp doesnt seem to go any higher than 50C. When I raised my frequency to 225, and turned the stress test on, the pc just rebooted. So I guess i needed to mess with Vcore, which I have never messed with before.
Im thinking my target will be atleast 3.2-3.5 ghz with max temps under 65C
According to amds website: Max Temps (C)71'C
Also stated on amds website, i dont know if those are the max voltages or so but says: Voltages0.9 - 1.425V

What should I do?

Stock coolers suck. Buy a Hyper 212 Plus.

I think the rebooting was caused by not enough vcore. When you change it only push it up a little bit ( like 1 increment) if still not enough then try again. but stop after like 2 tries.And yea if your going for a serious overclock an aftermarket cooler is necessary.

Well, i had gotten my vcore set from 1.3 to 1.4 and have my stuff set @
224 frequency multiplier by 14 and i did a stress test for about 5 hours and hasnt gotten over 50C. When I tried turning the FSB to 225 the computer, windows thingy doesnt load, it shows it like its gonna load but doesnt do the animation. (btw i didnt need to up voltage to get to fsb of 224

you may have hit a wall with your frequency, should now set your frequency to stock and push the multi till you hit a wall then try put them together.

Stay below 1.475V
Be sure to watch MOSFET temps
Expect to hit max at 3.6-3.8Ghz with a C2 rev CPU

Well 14x is the highest and stock multiplier.
I guess i cant go any farther than 3.127ghz. even was @ the voltage of 1.4500 and didnt boot at the fsb of 229

yea i think you might have hit the wall, so whats your current settings? i personally prefer going with higher frequency as it will overclock ram , nb and stuff but not sure what the multi has over it.

With Stock Cooler? 3.2Ghz

First you need a decent CPU cooler. CM Hyper 212+ would be a great option.

After you do that you can think about OCing. As long as your temperatures are okay I think you could probably go up to 1.5v if you have to. Keep in mind that using greater than spec voltage will most likely reduce the lifespan of your CPU, but nobody keeps the same CPU for 8 years so it doesn't really matter.

edit: I just looked up your motherboard K10N78D, and woow that thing is old-school. Honestly I would get a new motherboard before attempting to overclock any further.
