Ok so atm i'm running at...

4329Mhz
1.55Vcore
30C core temp
40-45 cpu temp then?

Just running grid computing for now but it locked up once on me (not BSOD)

Can't push it further can I?

If it locked up, then you're clearly not stable. wink.gif

Use Prime95 as suggested for a few hours in between runs. It's a LOT faster than having it "feel" stable, and randomly BSOD'ing one day and not knowing why.

Your temperatures are fine UP TO around 55*C. Vcore up to 1.55v. And CPU-NB voltage up to 1.45v.

Ok so is it possible to get my chip any further? I haven't changed the CPU-NB at all and yes I will run prime later but is there anything else I can try before downstepping and running prime because I was hoping to hit 4.4 stable 24/7

Honestly, you're already at the limits of voltages as is (as per your BIOS shots in the OP). So if that's not stable, then your only choice honestly is to back the clocks down a notch until it passes. Or you can raise the voltages more, but you'll be past "safe" 24/7 volts.

To be honest, anything over 4.0GHz is just bragging rights anyway. And I have yet to see more than 1 or 2 AMD chips pass much over 4.0 stable anyway.

Damn, I thought I had seen others stable at 4.4GHz so I wanted this also. I am going to try 1.575 as I have done this voltage before and see if it's stable and if it is then I will decide to keep it like that or not. what sort of risk am i taking by going above 1.5 and as far as 1.6?

Also how much would unsteady power disrupt my overclock. because I live in a fairly rundown house, might it be a good idea to get a UPS for better overclock?

Try reducing your NB frequency a little.

He doesn't have anything on the NB the CPU Clock is what represents the NB

the CPU/NB is the other half to the NB the IMC (3000MHz).



Also you may want a mosfet cooler also.

You're risking an early death of your chip with more voltage. Honestly, I've ran up to 1.675v through my Athlon II quad. I'm personally not afraid of more voltage. But its up to you ultimately. If you feel comfortable degrading your chip early, then by all means go for it. thumb.gif Just keep your temperatures below 55*C, and you're good to go honestly.

Unsteady power could be a problem. But given the PSU you have, it would be unlikely, since your PSU has filters in it to avoid that problem. A UPS wouldn't hurt anything though. wink.gif

I have a cpu heatsink fan blasting the mosfets but I would be interested in getting a mosfet heatsink but i'm just not sure which ones fit! apparently the 870a UD3 has a weirdly thin area for mosfet heatsink and most have to be modified which I dont have the capacity to do. Is there a known model that fits? If so i'd surely get it.

Early death doesn't mean much to me I mean I probably won't be using this CPU in 6 months let alone a year but I guess the question I need to ask myself is do I want to use it in my server after... I'll probably be inclined to keep my 1090t for use in my server and see what I can get out of 1.55V because honestly I can't notice the speed boost from 3.2 to 4.2.

Another strange thing is happening my FSB is set to 200 but in all my utilities im getting 4228MHz with 201*21 which just makes no sense...

EDIT: Thanks a lot for your input smile.gif

EDIT2: How important is it that a computer can pass prime95? I have had my computer running grid computing for over 24 hours at 100% CPU and it's fine but it won't pass prime...

Can you see anything wrong with my current method? Is it that different from prime?

Give OCCT stress test a shot, I find that it detects errors much faster than Prime95_ Instead of spending long hours doing Prime95 runs you can just run OCCT for 2hours_ I usually find that running OCCT for 2hours produce a faster stable result since it seems to find errors quicker_

OCCT push my temps to 51C while Prime95 max my temps out at only 50C, so in my theory OCCT stresses the hell out of the CPU much better** Personally I now only use OCCT, it saves me time and saving time saves me money =]

I've tested this theory and so far it has proven to me that OCCT finds an unstable overclock much quicker than running prime for 8+hours_
Give it a try_
