Need help with 1055t OC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Okay I just bought a new CPU cooler for my computer so I can OC my Phenon II X6 1055t, here are my specs.

- Phenom II X6 1055T AM3
- M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Socket AM3 890 ATX AMD MB
- Radeon HD 6870
- 750 Watt Fatal1ty
- Gold Edition OCZ 4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10666) CL9

And I bought a cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=hyper%20n520

And here are the screenshots from CPU-Z








I want to get the clockset to at least 3.2GHz possibly 3.4GHz or 3.6GHz

Thanks in advance.

Without 1600Mhz RAM a 1055T, you may be held back severely from overclocking. To top it off, it's OCZ Gold Garbage...
1. It's rated 1.65V on the box & ads (not 1.5V as with SPD)
2. It needs 1.65 to run 1333 9-9-9-20. Which is bad.
3. 1333 9-9-9-20 to begin with is not very optimal; as it is a generic setting you could expect low-binned ICs even with a properly rated 1.5V kit.

set your RAM to 1066MHz and start increasing your FSB in intervals of 5MHz and boot. when it fails, up the voltage a notch and try booting windows just like before until you no longer can. On more voltage bump.

for 3.6 you'll need a 257-258 FSB setting, and possibly 1.4-1.425V on the CPU.

Yeah, but as xd_1771 as said above me (wich i only saw after submitting the post) your ram will held you from a big OC...250FSB is the max you can expect for a FSB:RAM ration of 5.33 without OCeing it

Okay so in my Bios I set it so the FSB:RAM ratio to be automatically set, and when I set my RAM to 1067 and booted windows, my CPU is now clocked at 3258MHz, and the CPU is running at about 34 C which is good. So if I wanted to go higher I'd need to get another RAM stick running at what MHz?

EDIT - Reread above.

So either of these would work correct?

That Patriot one is a nice find, the price-performance seems great. It should do.

When I get the Patriot ones what MHz do I set them to?

What mobo do you have there are similar ram for alooot cheaper.
Like this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231259<--- really good kit

EDIT - It has to be 4gb sticks, I eventually want to have 16GB for some intensive rendering I do in my 3D modeling programs.
