My Phenom II X6 1055T won't go above 3150Mhz!? - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Dont' touch the NB multiplier.

All you do is you raise the bus speed to (Desire overclock/14).

So in your case (and in mine) 250mhz. That's ALL ( assuming you make sure your memory is clocked right AFTER changing bus speed

As a reminder (in case my post on the other page wasn't seen), this board does not support above 95W TDP, therefore your 1055T if 125W (likely) is not even supported at stock on this board. You need a new board. You also need new RAM, generic memory + 1055T = prepare to be held back.

I noticed in OP's screenshot he is running an M4A78LT-M LE. The 3+1 VRMs would not be capable for any overclock on the 1055T - and to start with, the board is not even rated for 125W processors. Unless you have a 95W 1055T (unlikely), you will have to get a new motherboard to safely run this processor whether at stock or at an overclock. I recommend for now returning to stock, and undervolting a couple notches. Sorry to ruin your day but as my title says, "Disaster Prevention Guru." I don't want you to come back here telling us your house is on fire!
OP, listen to this guy. Right now, shut it down, go into BIOS, turn the voltage wayyy down, maybe 1.2V, and go for 800MHZ. Come back here, we'll suggest you a new motherboard(and power supply, if you have the brand) and you'll be good to go.

And make sure you have a stick in each channel this time! Going single channel is just unnecessarily lost performance...

DDR stands for Double Data Rate, which means it can operate on the rise and fall of the clock cycle. Due to this, your 'effective' Mhz differs from your 'actual' Mhz by a factor of 2.

I have a 580w power supply
Please don't tell me it's one of those HEC PSU's that came bundled with your case.

As stated, unless you plan on cooling your VRM's with some type of mechanism it's a good idea to probably undervolt your CPU at stock speed. Lack of power delivery will also hamper your overclocking efforts if the board doesn't break out into flames, first.

You aren't losing that much on an AM3 platform.
It also sounds like he only bought one stick.

Frequency isn't going to be as great of a factor as voltage. With a decreased operational voltage at 2800 Mhz he could easily be within the TDP limits of the board.

Ahh thank you for the quick replies! Apologies for the lack of info, I thought my screenshot would be enough! It's been a long night.

Ok so, I have one stick of 4gb ram at 1333mhz. Cost around £30 so not exactly a gucci bit of kit! haha.

My system specs are as follows;

CPU- AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (6 core) 2.8Ghz
GPU - Sapphire HD 5770 1GB
Mobo - Asus M4A78LT-M AMD 760G (Socket AM3)
HDD - Samsung Spin Point F3 SATAII 1TB 7200rpm
RAM - Novatech 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Single Channel
External HD - 500GB Seagate
Display - 40" HDTV Toshiba

As for my OS... My computer previous to my current one had a genuine copy of Win7 home edition but due to my nature, I threw it in box after the initial install and can't find it again. Yes, I know it was my fault, but £80 is rather a lot of money for a student, so I just borrowed a copy from my flatmate for this install.

A lot of OCN users would be surprised how young you can be to afford things. I come from an average family, and I am in middle school. You are lucky you can get a nice job while I am making less than minimum wage(currently $4 an hour in the summer).

I understand you shouldn't have to pay for Windows again, and I would probably do the same thing.


Anyway, what brand is your PSU? So far you need a RAM upgrade, a motherboard upgrade, and probably a PSU upgrade. Sorry.

Thanks for the replies guys, really appreciated. I just checked and my PSU and it's a X-Power GTX Light 580. This PSU is really quite old, around 2007 I think because it is from my first custom built computer. I did think though that 580w would be enough to run all my components.

EDIT: Put my computer back into stock values again. 2.8ghz at 1.2v.

Get a Corsair TX650. Sorry to tell you, but that PSU isn't supplying 580w. I think it's supplying more like 300w.
