OC'in with Genie lite

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I'm new to CPU OC'ing and i'v started with a tool provided by MOBO.

My MSI 870-45G has an option called Genie Lite, which auto OC.

I got good results with it:
GPU-Z http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1707455

Idle:30ºC
Prime95 (after half an hour): 52ºC

Ambient ~ 28ºC


My question is:
After oc'in, core freq is stuck at 3.4ghz... and before oc'ing, it stayed at 800mhz when not in use...

Is it normal?


And another question, did i get good results with this OC?

Thanks.



EDIT: should i disable turbo core?

1. Don't ever use auto features like that to OC
2. Don't ever OC on that board with an x6. it WILL blow up due to MSI VRM issues. Return to stock and begin undervolting. Even stock six cores and quad cores have blown that mobo and similar variants up in minutes.
3. Turbo core should be diabled.
4. Generic RAM + 1055T doesn't help either, generic RAM WILL hold you back from full potential on a 1055T.

Trust that man, return to stock now and undervolt. You shouldnt even be running a 6 core on that board.

That's correct. The risk is just too severe on that motherboard, being an unheatsinked 4+1 and having the MSI label on it. Moreso than the 870A-G54, which is a heatsinked 4+1 and is just as bad.

If they both use 1333 CL9 settings, mixing them won't be a problem, but neither are good for overclocking the 1055T. You will never reach 4Ghz on that RAM because at 286-300Mhz bus clock, the RAM multipliers line up so that your best option is to run 1600Mhz. Most generic memory can't handle overclocks that far.

What is your motherboard budget? There are other 870 motherboards with great quality at around $100

I got around 150$ to spend on...

And if i'm going to OC' i'm not expect passing 3.6ghz, i don't think my cooler will handle it...

So i'm good with these ram?

I'v foudn this MB Asus M4A79XTD EVO AM3

It's the same as yuors?



EDIT: These timings are right? what can i do?

Though xd is a bit of a worry wart, yeah he's right, I would definitely not recommend OCing an x6 on your (my) mobo. It's not a guarantee death sentence, but it's quite risky.

You're often going to get what you pay for unfortunately, so the cheaper you go with your mobo the less reliable it will be for OCing (and possibly dying). The X6s are mobo killers, so you might have to shell out a bit more than you'd have expected for a real mobo.

I think probably the best reasonably priced mobo you'll find is the GA-870A-UD3, I'm pretty sure it supports x6 but you should go ahead and make sure yourself that it has all the things you want for your system.

EDIT: Read you said $150, well there's a buncha asus and gigabyte mobos, go ahead and browse around xd's mobo list in his sig.

ocpokey was a victim on his motherboard.
M4A79XTD EVO is usually and was recently a very good board for the price. If RAM is included in this budget, you may be somewhat limited.

1333Mhz CL9, if you use 250Mhz multi x 5.33 RAM, will give you up to 3500Mhz on the CPU. Most 1055Ts are capable of much much more. Any further than that and the results would be unclear - especially having two differnt kits from different brands that may have different ICs that conflict past the stock settings.
There are some good 2x4GB or 4x2GB deals right now, but I'm not too sure if they would fit into a $150 budget if that budget is for both board and RAM.
