Overclock my 1st build

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello gawkers and gaspers, dont be startled by the horror show about to go on. Im trying to overclock my first build, so not only do I have no idea what Im doing, I also have a wreckless ambition for pushing my parts to their max before they fizzle and die... Here are my current operating specs (with Prime95 Tourture Test running)

Core Voltage-1.504 V
Multiplier- x19.5
Bus Speed- 200 MHz
HT Link- 2400 MHz
NB Frequency- 2400 MHz
DRAM Frequency- 666.7 MHz
Core Temp- 36C

I have read enough to know that I am going to do something wrong, I am worried about my high voltage, any one have a good word?

Is that Core temp @ load or Idle? That's not a bad temp if it's at 100% load when the temp was taken. I have not touched a phenom though, last AMD I clocked was a AM2 6000+

I'm pretty sure you can take it higher with those VOLTS (not temps). I got to 4GHz with my terribad board. I'm pretty sure you can reach 4GHz too.
And try overclocking with the bclk. I heard that it gives you better performance.

At load with Prime 95 on torture testing.. up to 38, I heard that AMD CPUs are ambiguous comes to temperature readings, usually needing to account for 12 to 13 C that isn't detected in software.

I would suggest you read this thread and see for yourself, http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...hase-list.html

This shows the max CPU TDP Support as only 125w for your mobo. A OC'd 1090T is 140w, this may not be what you want to hear but I'll say it politely as possible.
You're asking for trouble by OCing that hexacore on that mobo!

The thread above was made to help new comers with this very question, as in will my mobo survive OCing.

1.5V on x6 on 4+1 phase... I'd worry even if it's heatsinked, the x6 is very TDP heavy
The likelihood is you don't need 1.5V anyway, try and get it down
If you're running 1.5V and haven't even OC'ed, you're in trouble

No I don't...

...boy was I.

After battling the BSOD and several freezes while running Prime I scaled back...

Core Voltage- 1.312
Core Speed- 3.68 GHz
Multiplier- 16
Bus Speed- 230 MHz

Max TDP 130 W
-the manufacturers website claims that this product supports CPU's up to 140 W

Im still interested in pushing my system as hard as I can, how nervous should I be when altering my BIOS settings?

Is the "max TDP" thing a software reading?
Yeah, don't trust that
By the way though the x6 has same TDP rating as x4 it can be significantly more VRM-heavy than an x4 to the point where motherboards that never failed with x4 do so with x6

I guess it all depends on how much you like that mobo and how long you want to keep it lol. The thread I sent you was made with the help of xd1771 who is a highly praised OC authority here at OCN. He also replied to this post. All we can do is make recommendations, what you do is totally up to you.
I'm sure xd1771 is much more qualified to answer your question, but after reading that thread I'd consider limiting the OCing on this board.

Dang it, was hoping to beat you xd, I should have known you'd respond.

The VRMs are of at least decent quality and heatsinked but with a very high voltage x6 anything would be possible
One of our members managed to blow an ASRock 8+2 board, but this was with an x6 at very very high voltage (1.53-1.55V or so I believe). An x6 overvolted heavily would probably be as power-heavy as a C2 rev 140W 965 overclocked

But at stock voltage of 1.312 I'd say it's safe
