Need help with overclocking amd x6 1055t processor

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I just bought an Amd x6 1055t cpu along with a gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 motherboard. Despite this processor not being black edition, i have seen others OC there own one of these to around 3.7ghz on stock voltage by raising the base clock, and adjusting the HT link multiplier and memory multiplier to suit. Problem is though, as soon as i apply the changes and reboot, it immediately says "boot failures due to overclocking'. So i went back and lowered it to 3.5ghz. It does the same thing again. Could someone plz tell me what i am doing wrong?

It needs more voltage. Some CPU's arent as good as the others.

You should add VRM cooling before you overclock. Once you do you'll be fine.
All chips are different. Don't just go somewhere and expect it to work, go slowly, i.e. 100-200Mhz at a time.

check your ram timings. i have the same cpu & similar motherboard to you and my first overclock gave me the same thing.

these are my settings. for 4GHz

FSB/Multiplier: 286
CPU Speed: 4004 GHz
NB Speed: 2287
CPU Voltage: 1.4v
CPU-NB Voltage: 1.125
RAM Speed: 1525MHz (8-8-8-22)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H
Model: 125w

if your still on stock cooling then lower the FSB to say 250 which should give you 3.5GHz, and you can put the cpu voltage back to stock. hope this helps

I usually get "Overcloking Failed" at boot cus of lack of voltage to NB or RAM, not CPU.

dutchbrit, VRM cooling would be very important in your case because your board (880GM, no A) recycles the old 3-transistor MOSFET design from the 785G boards and below that are actually known to blow up, almost as much as MSI. Be sure you have MOSFET cooling on yours before pushing an OC, and do stay at 1.4V or below. I can't remember if I told you this yet or not, but I think I did.

The 880GM-USB3 will be fine with MOSFET cooling up to 1.5V, it uses a newer low RDS design that is much cooler and safer.
