Hello eveyone! I am starting a small, but all inclusive owners club for the gimped out A10 and A4 APU, otherwise known as the Athlon x2 340/370 and the Athlon x4 740/50k, and the new 760k/BE. Please know that as these are gimped APU's, they may have a good variance between overclocking chip to chip, as there are some reviewers running the same basic setups, and achieving much higher clocks. I was able to boot to 4.8Ghz, but it was not stable for very long.
Please include a link to your CPU Z Validation for admission! Also, please PM me with the same link, and I will post up an owners list once I receive them.
Most APU OC guides will help you achieve a good clock of up to 4.4Ghz fairly easily, and with the 760k, one should reach the 5+Ghz zone, as the comparable Richland A10 has breached the 5+ Ghz club.
Basic system information:
74c is the absolute maximum recommended temperature for the 740/750k. Expect the same for the 760k.
1.55v is the maximum recommended voltage for the CPU on 740/50k. Expect the same to be true for the 760k.
Stock CPU/NB speed is 1600Mhz. ***Must be raised to a minimum of 2200Mhz for ram over 1866Mhz!!*** Will update once more information is released for the 760k.
1.325v is the maximum recommended voltage for the CPU/NB on the 740/750k. Expect the same for the 760k.
Optimum stable OC for CPU/NB is 2200Mhz. It has been reported to be stable at 2500Mhz, but this will affect overall system clocks/stability.
When you're ready to post information on your CPU, please include the following to help others with settings:
- Motherboard brand, model, BIOS Version and Revision #.
- Multiplier, Bus Speed, Northbridge Clock.
- CPU VCore, CPU/NB Vcore, Vdroop settings, power saving features, and any other applicable settings you used to obtain max stable OC.
- Memory brand, model, OC speed, timings, and voltage.
- Cooling Solution.
- Power Solution.
For optimal Overclocking, it is recommended that you purchase an A85X series motherboard, with good VRM cooling options, as these chips can be punishing on the motherboard!
Please remember to update you're Bios with the most current revision for optimal support.
Time to get the word out and show this sub $90.00 CPU some love!
Wanna show you're love for this CPU? Post this handy dandy code in you're sig!!!
