Ready to try at >4Ghz. Never succesfully overclocked?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was try... and trying..... and trying to overclock with the help of the forum here. In the end I gave up becuase I was stuck with generic brand RAM that was "weird". Now I am back and ready to try agian.
I get great temps with my cooler, and want to go for 4.0ghz or higher with my sig rig. I am at stock speeds right now. I have tested everything at it is stable at stock settings. So where do I even start?

All voltages except my RAM's fail voltages are on "Auto".

I haven't overclocked on AMD in awhile, but assuming the x6 is a BE processer all you do is raise the multi until it crashes. When it crashes, raise the CPU voltage in small increments until it doesn't fail. Keep repeating the process until you can't go anymore due to temperature restrictions. There's obviously other settings you have to tweak with, hopefully others can touch up on that better than I can.

Also, when overclocking I always leave my memory on "Auto" or 1333 until I find my 24/7 CPU stable overclock from Blend. After I've found it, I'll bring the memory from "Auto" to 1600 and run Large FFTs for around 8 hours, if it passes I consider my memory 24/7 stable as well.

overclocking amd is a major pain in the butt. I could never get my 1100T past 4.1ghz on my old noctua nh-d14. Tried everything from upping base clock and decreasing my multi to the opposite.... played with my timmings. Nothing.

Since it's a black edition i suggest try upping the multi and increasing the vcore by increments of .5 to see when it is fully stable. If it was anything like my old chip it will need > 1.52v. But i heard that your chip actually clocks better with lower volts so just see

If you haven't seen /read this thread http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html it would be a real good place to start. It has most of the info you'll need plus gives you a good path (order to do things) to follow. It would benefit you the most to have the basics of "how to overclock" bookmarked and refer back to it as needed, than when you have a really odd situation make a post.

OC'ing takes time and so many just want to jump to a big OC without knowing there chips limits and demands. It's always best to take the time and learn your own chip rather than having others tell you "use these settings" or "do this like I did". If you read through the forums you can see everybody has different results (voltage wise) because even though they have the same mobo and cpu every chip is different. With this in mind remember excess voltage creates unwanted heat which in turn limits your OC. That's why it's best to see how low you can keep your own. You may find your demands are much less than everyone else's (or more) and there's really no way that anyone can tell you these things.

I'd highly recommend to study the link above and work just one area at a time, as questions come up, make a post. It really doesn't pay to expect to just jump to a specific OC for e-peen value. Work it up slowly as you go, keep good notes of settings and voltages used and make small changes along the way. That's how it should be done for a max safe total system OC.

When it comes to your ram if there the same as mine (ECO's?) I can tell you you should be able to stabilize them with the same settings (approx) that are listed in my rig sig. Disable cool and quiet when OC'ing and than enable after it's stabilized if you like. Max safe cpu and cpu/nb voltages are 1.55v. Max safe temp for cpu is 55c while reading the cpu socket temp as you'll want head room for the heat of summer days while gaming for example. After making a change stress test with prime95 for 20-60 minuets for a quick test till you reach your goal, when it'll take 12-24 hrs to assure a stable system.

This is how I started and would be happy to share what I know with anyone who asks. Good luck and just try studying a bit before jumping in all the way.
