Unable to overclock my 1090T

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I've been working on this for about 2 months, and I can't seem to figure out where I'm going wrong. I've honestly had to clear my CMOS jumper over 100 times, and am still at stock.

The computer is listed as my current system, and that's up to date. I began trying to overclock in February, using this guide. It's great, but I think the issues are on my end.

Every time I change any setting in my BIOS, I can't POST. If I even raise my CPU multiplier to 16.5x, with a stock bus, and raise my CPU and Vcores, I have to jumper it. CnQ, Turbo, SS are all disabled. Memory is input manually and runs great at it's factory speed.

Am I changing the wrong things perhaps? VDD voltage is the Vcore? And the others are as obvious as their title? I can't find anywhere else I would do it differently...I have read that a lot of people have issues when using the amount of RAM I have, but unfortunately I do wave model simulations that require massive amounts.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful...I think whatever is wrong must be isolated to something I have set wrong, as tons of people with very similar systems don't have any issues, but I can't think of what else to check.

No idea why this would happen, but I wouldn't overclock a 1090T on that board anyway due to potential VRM issues.

Are you referring to the chip controlling the memory? I wondered if that was part of the issue.

If that is the case, I'll just have to keep lurking the forum until the itch to go faster is undeniable. First, though, my MK1 GTI get's it's supercharger kit. Because I have the itch to go faster...in a physical plane...

At least my computer is/was/has been 100% stable as stock. It could have been much worse.

No, the VRMs are the MOSFETs and they are important as they're the backbone of power supply to the CPU (see link in sig). That board is known for blow-ups in this area due to extremely high power draw from overclocking a 125W processor.

You should be able to overclock that cpu without changing voltage. Have you tried overclocking your cpu before inputing ram settings?
Still needs work.

I added enzotech heat sinks to my mosfets for overclocking and I recommend doing this also if you do not already have some type of cooling on them.

Ahh, I've read something saying people are having issues with these...I thought that was only for people going to extremes. I'll give the links a read.

I did not...manually entering the RAM speed was the first thing I did. Actually, trying to overclock the ram was the first thing I did, but it really dislikes anything other than the factory settings. I will try reverting everything to the SPD, and bump the multiplier again.

Are you referring to these guys? I will need to identify the mosfets on my board first, to see if there is space...the Aegir is pretty beefy, and covering a lot up and down from the chip.

Same thing happened to me when I bought the Phenom II 955 / MSI 790FX-GD70 combo. Even if I raised the FSB to 201, I had to clear CMOS. I had to flash the BIOS(mobo had the initial release-first BIOS on it) and after that OCing wasn't a problem anymore.
