Need help getting to 4.2ghz w/955be - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
There's no MOSFET cooling on my board. I may get some on the next order I make, but I may just look into a different board too. At 3.9GHz, I'm happy with the speed of the system. I mostly wanted to see if I could get past the basics of changing the multiplier. I didn't want to go above 1.4v for my everyday stuff. I think the only time I'll be putting a full load on the system is when I do transcoding.

Unheatsinked and uncooled like that (there shouldn't even be any air getting to it at all with that setup) you shouldn't be overclocking at all

As you know, I'm totally new to this. For the long run, what would be the best thing for me to do:

1. Fan on side panel. I have a fan I could put there and I could make a shroud that would put air blowing on them

2. Heat sinks. I could get some from Newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835708012

3. Get a different motherboard. I saw that the GA-890FXA-UD5 was one that seemed OK. The sad part is that when I did this upgrade, I looked at that board and thought why would I need to spend that much - now I know.

Thanks for the advice.

I know this is Overclock.net but why do you want to overclock your rig so much? Most (if not all) games out there won't utilize an overclocked CPU much at all, IE you won't tell much of a difference.

Just keep it stock IMO

I think heatsinks would be the best option. The enzotech ones you linked would be great as they are copper. I got these Arctic Cooling aluminum ones, they work just fine and I have heatsinks left over for misc. items I have. I don't think buying a new board would really be justified, but thats my opinion. You could add a side fan, but heatsinks are going to be more effective then just a fan by itself.

No. This may surprise you, but not everyone uses their PC solely for gaming. OP is running Linux and mentioned video transcoding, so I don't think gaming is his primary concern. For doing real work, you will notice a difference w/ an overclocked cpu versus stock.

For me, I have my 3.8ghz core NB at 2.6ghz with 1.3VID and 1.4v on core. To get stable at 4ghz I need 1.525v Anything above 4ghz almost seems impossible (for my chip anyway) Because I had 1.6v on core and I get an instant crash under linpack. Best of luck!!!!!!

I already knew that, however even when running Linux and video transcoding it won't benefit from a 200MHz increase in speed, at least you won't be able to see a difference.

I still think the OP should keep it at stock or stable 3.8GHz for 24/7 usage.

I hate to be negative Nancy, but 4.2GHz with that board and that cooler is not a good idea. I attempted 4.2GHz on my sig rig and it's just too hot.

Ok, because that's not what you said in your last post, you told him to keep it at stock (3.2) and started talking about gaming.

I had mine at 4.0 for a long time and there is very little difference between 4.0 and 4.2; however, there is a significant difference between 3.2 and 4.2ghz.

OP just get some sinks on your mosfet, leave the cpu wherever its stable, and push that NB as much as you can get it.

Video transcoding puts the CPU at 100% load for long periods of time which means the VRMs can be put to load for long periods of time.... I would definitely recommend full heatsinks there. A side panel fan just won't do it by the way, the air would most likely be stolen by other fans before it gets there.
