Overclocking a 1045T, new too this stuff, & wondering what stable temps would be for this chip. Idle temp is ussually 31-33C, and 53C on load in prime95,
my board gets up too a good 40C when gaming too, any Overclocking advice would be great, also if it helps im upgrading too the Corsair H60 soon here.

System:
Mobo: Asrock 960GM/ US3S FX
CPU: AMD Phenom II 1045T @ 3.64Ghz (1.4v) NB Freq: 2430Mhz (1.35V)
GPU: XFX Radeon 7750 Ghz Edition @ 885/1125
RAM: 16GB Patriot Viper 3 @ 1040Mhz (10-10-10-20-2T)
PSU: Generic 500W
HDD: 1TB WD Caviar Green (7200RPM),
1TB Seagate Barracuda (7200RPM)
Drives: Samsung Super Writemaster
Cooling: 7, 120MM Case fans, Silverstone NT06-E CPU Cooler
Lighting: Logysis Cold Cathode Light kit
Case: Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition

Stable temps would be 70-75C. Any higher than that and I would lower the voltage.

The Corsair H60 should lower the temps even more.

As posting an overclocking guide on this thread would be time consuming, I'll give you a link to a good guide I found on YouTube.

what is the problem ??? the mobo temp 40C still safe, want more cool air flow just add Huge Fan inside, your temp 53C still safe ( max 60C for Prime95 and game 55C) .. H60 is good but i think hyper 212evo is match for your CPU for dailly , just a suggestion

I've been reading up on the H60 & i've heard iffy things about it, would you guys recommend a different waterblock closed loop cooler? a hyper 212 isn't an option, won't fit in my case. the NT06-E Barely fits with contact on my upper fans (No rubbing just on the housing) but im looking for 3.8-4Ghz 24/7 stable OC, on good temps,
as i stated im at 3.6Ghz on the NT06-E Air cooler, not bad at all, just don't want too push it too much farther with the temps i've been getting. Any help is appreciated!

Hyper 212 won't fit in my case, looking too run a closed loop waterblock (H60 or similar), any other idea's?

Wait, it can't fit? Is that because you have a side fan? Well, IMO a side fan actually interrupts airflow. As it should only be one direction for maximum cooling, a side fan would interfere with this. This is what I just think... But it doesn't really matter, since there good choices in which you can circumvent the current problem.

The max CPU cooler height for your case 170mm. With a standard 120x120x25mm attached (e.g. CM 120mm Excaliber), that would equate to a maximum of 145mm. I doubt any good traditional CPU cooler would be able to fit. Like you said, the H60 would be a good idea. You could also try the CoolerMaster GeminII S524 CPU Cooler, but I do not think it would cut it.

So IMHO the H60 which goes around for $80 is an ideal choice. Antec KUHLER H2O 620 CPU Cooler is another option.

I suggest either or any of these choices that are within your budget.

As always, please consider selecting my answer as the solution if you have found it helpful. Thanks :)

Thanks oddly! will be using the H60 then forsure, but i have another question about my XFX 7750 now, i've pushed it too 900/1140 & it's not running hot but i get driver crashes in SR3, MW2, & freezes here & there, only when OC'd, any idea's? im on Catalyst 12.11

Simple: the overclock is not stable. Either you lower the clock, or increase voltages.

If your using MSI Afterburner, I would not recommend overvolting. Use Sapphire Trixx instead.
If I were you, as long as the temperatures are lower than 85C, then increase voltages.
Increase it by increments of 25, until it crashes no more.

If you're not comfortable with overvolting, then I suggest just lowering the clock little by little until the crashing ceases.

But if you are willing, then I'm here happy to help :) 

Could you please select a solution and I'll be happy to continue helping :)  Thanks.

I'm overclocking the 7750 with Overdrive in Catalyst, Voltage increase acctually makes perfect sense, but when increasing voltage in overdrive i can only go up by 1% at a time, and im worried about blowing the card up, what do you think would be a reasonable increase? the card will only increase +20% Voltage in overdrive.

I wouldn't recommend using Overdrive as an overclocking tool.

In regards to that "+20%", that is the powertune limit and not overvolting.
You are increasing the amount of power that the 7750 can use, however you are not increasing voltages.

Hope this helps. :)
