Getting a 1055t to 4GHz - Page 2

post #11 of 28
here you go:

dont want to stress it more cuz of the heat as you can see its the motherboard that's not all that pleased about being clocked up this high. the reason is my case. and IDGAF I'd rather run it at 2.8 and use this beautiful case than 4ghz in my beasty high air flow.

another thing u might want to try is disabling your onboard graphics, audio, usb 3.0, and any other onboard devices you aren't using. All I leave on is the LAN since I use HDMI, PCI, or USB sound and have no IGP. IGPs are never your friend when it comes to picking a mobo for overclocking, so avoid them at all costs. you definitely wont get a good OC out of your NBFreq with your IGP enabled.

+screens plz


edit:still runnin this clock speed, just played some bfbc2(~20 minutes). temps are disgusting on the mobo(high 50s~low 60s), but not too bad on the gpu or cpu. gonna clock back down now. hope I can help you out when you're tryin it tomorrow! I really think its your timings

post cpu-z tabs, like this, for further assistance. its a lot of text to read and arrange - everyone has an easier time just getting the info from cpu-z (print screen, mspaint, ctrl+v, crop, save, manage attachments, done) should take u 1 minute to get the screenie up, and save anyone reading your thread at least 5.

I'll clock up to 4ghz if you guys wanna see my set and I can post cpu-z tabs. I wont stability test it in this case though. its not set up to handle all that extra heat.
Thank you for the help, but I have to disagree. RAM timings are not set in stone. My kit has its SPD set for 1333 CL9 but is specced to run all the way up to 1800Mhz CL9. It's not unusual to be able to run RAM at tighter timings by dropping the frequency.

My guess is the board doesnt like the ram, i went through 3sets until i got a set that worked well.

You should not need 1.55v just to boot. Im running 1.45v in bios and 1.25v for the NB.

What is your htlink speed? im just under 2000

Yes it's quite easy. Just put the clock to 286. Then tinker with the memory and voltages. My'n is running at 4.02ghz now stable as ever.

Guess you have got very bad chip. For 4Ghz i need just 1.416v.

I'll try messing with RAM a bit. This chip just seems wonky to me...Stay tuned.

I'm starting to think this chip is crap. I seriously can't boot (instant BSOD) at 4Ghz with anything less than about 1.5v. What the H?

Has anybody else had problems like this? This is ridiculous!

Sorry I haven't been around lately I can't spend all my time on OCN or I'd be failing classes and ending up spending more time in remedial school or something

How are your chip temperatures? Keeping that 1055T cooler can allow you to get lower voltages - Phenom II loves it cool. I recently moved from a Xigmatek Dark Knight to Noctua D14.... bam, required 4Ghz voltage goes from 1.475V to 1.425V. A lot of DICE OCers also say this is true on Phenom II, requiring less voltage for 4Ghz stable than with air cooling.

It may also be another voltage you haven't looked at, such as CPU-NB voltage. Heck perhaps even a random bump in the NB (chipset) voltage may fix it, in rare cases it has

What the - and this makes sense how!? If it can run CAS 6 stable, then I say go ahead and run it CAS 6. Specs are specs, sure, but if that were the case all the time, then none of us on this site would be overclocking our chips at all. Besides, knowing how AMD memory usually tends to perform, at 1600 CAS6 on AMD I'm pretty sure it outperforms 1800 CAS9 [in benchmarks] anyway (1600 CAS6-7 comes daringly close to even 2000 @ CAS9.... lower timings can have the same effect as high speed)

You, sir, are a stud and a half. Thanks for helping n00bs like me out in the first place. I'm aiming for 4-4.05Ghz, ~2700Mhz NB and 1600Mhz CL6 or 7. I'll try the NB (chipset voltage) and see if that helps. Thanks man!

With my 1055T, I couldnt even boot @ 1,5V with 3,5 GHz.
