*HELP* with AMD Overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got a Phenom II X4 945BE for my friends build and we are going to build it tonight, and I'd like to know some information about AMD overclocking...
I know the basics (1.5V on air MAX) 60c MAX but the NB thing is a little unclear to me? What happens if I leave it on auto and overclock the chip to lets say 4Ghz? oh and do you guys think that a Hyper 212+ w/ Push/Pull would take the CPU to 4Ghz? Thanks! -Antsu

The NB will be fine on auto but you can bump it up to 2600mhz. The only thing you need to worry about is keeping the HT Link close to 2000mhz. I'm not so sure about 4ghz though, you'll just have to get it there slowly, run prime95 and keep a close check on your temps.

does the HT affect on CPU clock? Because if it doesn't the CPU is a nice overclocker... it did 4.2Ghz with 1.408Vcore and might go higher, didn't try to lower the vcore sense I was busy and my friend was freaking out that its gonna explode, lol. Its his first build Oh and the temps maxed 52C on Blend for 1H

the temps look good, try to keep it around 55c max for stability

ht should stay close to stock, 2000

nb should default to 200, it can go higher, but will ramp up everything else, cpu/ht/nt/ram

Very nice! The HT doesn't really affect the OC; however, if it is too high it can cause stability issues.
