Because of it's age? Never thought of that really. Silly me. I'll look into a further upgrade

It's not so much age (although PSU's do lose a small amount of max output over time) as the fact that budgety cheap PSU's can be and are overrated for their power delivery.

Ahh I see.

So new psu, sorted. New ram, sorted. Any recommendations as to a new board with a reasonable budget?

I had no problem getting to 3.5GHz. I think it may be your RAM that could be holding you back due to the fact its 1333 and 1600 supposedly works better for the chip. I'm not completely sure but that may be a factor.

Heres what I got if you want to try to copy my settings:

Thanks man, although it appears my theory of spending dear on the cpu and cheap on the mobo/ram has not worked out well!

No problem! lol yeah that can happen. Get RAM that's 1600 instead of 1333 for the 1055t and maybe if you feel daring, get another motherboard? Good luck getting to 3.5 and beyond though!

I really wouldn't trust an old PSU with an unknown brand name either.
An ideal motherboard for overclocking 1055T would have a quality VRM/power phase; 8+2 or so is preffered, but a good quality 4+1/4+2 with cooling would be fine (i.e. Biostar TA890FXE, newer Gigabyte boards... NOT MSI boards or low-end ASRock boards with 3-transistor designs that are cheap and hot)

1600Mhz RAM is a must for the 1055T if you want to OC. The reason is that the memory multiplier available at 286~300 corresponds the best to 1600Mhz (x5.33). Otherwise you would be underclocking your RAM or trying to get a weird setting running that isn't rated, and it would give you more trouble. 1600Mhz RAM is the same price as generic 1333 RAM, if not $5 more or so.

Just had a look at the ASUS website and I found that my board is listed under supported.. Screeny below.

Ohhh, I thought it was the LE version.
1055T should be fine on that board, but at stock speed only until you get VRM cooling. It's still a lowly unheatsinked 4+1 VRM.

It's cool man, no worries.
Could you explain VRM cooling a little more please? I'm guessing 4+1 has something to with my PSU?
