Hello lads.

I got myself a fancy 1055t that I've been using for years @ 3.793ghz (271 x 14.00x, 1.45v). Just yesterday I was playing a huge Civ game, and I was suprised at the slow performance I was getting; turns out that it has been running at default settings for about a year when I got some new RAM :O

However, I CANNOT reach 4ghz. I tried everything; increasing the CPU voltage all the way up to 1.525v. The only voltages that I changed are the CPU voltage and DRAM (1.45v and 1.5V respective). Everything else is on default (I know, I'm a filthy casual

)

Also, Core temp reports 62 C at full load. Should I um........ turn it down?

Tried increasing the CPU-NB frequency to ~3600mhz, voltage up to 1.3v. Still crashed on launch.



These are settings that I had the last time I did a 12h stress test with no errors

EDIT: Should I just set CPU-NB Frequency to 3600 and call it a day?.

I'd say you need better cooling to hit 4 ghz with an X6 .

I actually have a Hyper 212, but only 2 of the screws could go in. I mean, it's pretty flush on my CPU but I can physically rotate it.

32 C idle, 58 load.

Good temps all things considered. I would still find a way to get this 2 screw's fastened. And regarding the rotating yeah that's an unfortunate feature of the 212.

See if you can get small fan to blow directly on the vrm area.

It's going south--> North to a 200mm exhaust fan @ the top, and a smaller exhaust at the back. Plus it doesn't look so bad!
