AMD Phenom II x6 1055T Overclock

I am currently planning a build for early summer and my cpu decision will be based on the overclocking potential of the 1055t, because i do plan to play games and wouldn't want that to hold me back. I haven't found any numbers online, but anyone who has found the numbers or even better, anyone who has overclocked the chip themselves, what frequency do you think someone could get this chip up to on air?

I've yet to find a review that hasn't claimed over 4.0Ghz on air. For games out currently, you're probably better off going with an i5-750, but games that are threaded well (like BF:BC2) the 1055T might be the right choice. Reviews have all shown that the i5-750 performs better in most titles except the ones that actually make use of the 6 cores.

As six core processors are released.Games will be started developed which will be able to use all six cores.So 1055t is a more future proof choice.On a good aftermarket cooler you can get it to 4Ghz.

I have a 1055T OCed to 3.5 running the stock cooler just by bumping the FSB without having to mess with Vcore. Simple and safe. Temps at full load using passmark burnin max cpu temp = 53C in 80 F ambient room temp. Could probably OC more by bumping Vcore but whats the point. With a Vertex SSD Win 7 boots in 15 sec after bios post is over. Dragon Age maxed out everything with 5830 vid card and smooth as glass.

I'm glad I didn't spend the extra $$ on a I7.

Hi, I just want to know if at 3.5Ghz were u still able to run on turbo? How high is the turbo freq?
CoolnQuiet on?

I overclocked my 1055T to 3.4ghz --> 4.0ghz Turbo, no problems with stability with the stock HSF. Honestly I'd get a better cooler though, temps are a little out of control and its kinda loud. Trying to decide between better air or taking the plunge with h2o

My 1055T is currently clocked at 3.5 ghz with 250 fsb and turbo'd to 4 ghz with a 16x multiplier. The 16.5x multiplier which clocked the turbo frequency at 4.125 ghz was too high to even boot stable.

Slayer, that's not even true... There are plenty of people who get 4.0 with air cooling... You just need to use aftermarket coolers. And Adam, you should make your own thread, I know your trying to get help, but don't hijack theads...

uncfan, http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=24... Probably higher end air, but daaammnnn, 4.3ghz is pretty sweet at 64C full load. Anyways the 1055T is a great choice it has a LOT of OC headroom. But currently, it's graphical performance is less than that of the 955/965 because many games do not utilize the hexa-core design. Many even stick with single-core to dual-core. BUT the 1055T is defiantly a good buy.

I have 3.8Ghz stable on air as default setup.. 53Celcius around maxed prime 95..

Have had much more though, check my sig link..

Death run at 4.5ghz, but not too happy with 1.58v to get there.

I can have Turbo enabled at 3.4Ghz, but beyond that I switch it off..

Recording how often turbo switches on though due to Windows 7 utilising all cores, its not worth it in my Opinion, higher clock and Turbo Disabled.

Thats why I love my Asus Crosshairs, Ultra Power efficiant underclock for normal use, press a button in windows and instant OC to 3.8GHZ for Games/Encoding use, Click again and back to Default! Perfect

Haha moricon, as much as i love the crosshair, I love the 790FX-GD70's from MSI more XD

I have mine running stable at 4004Mhz and with my hyper 212 + it runs about45c under 100% load andsuprisingly my vcore is only 1.475 and that is the only alterations I had to make for stability.

AMD1055t 4Ghz @ 1.475v
GA880 Ud3H
Gskill 1600Mhx @ 1550Mhz 1.5v 9-9-9-24 ( i think i screwed up and got intel ram)

Im having a hard time understanding my temp readouts, im running a 1055t at (287x14) 4018mhz. Asus m4a89gtd-pro, 4gb dominator 1600mhz at 1525mhz on corsair h70.

Now running p95 and occt numerous programmes are displaying different readings example... cpuz hw monitor shows cpu temp at 55 but core 0-5 temps around 40, occts temp monitor shows max 40-41 on stress but around 17 on idle, as does speed fan and core temp.

Question is does anyone know which temp is the one to watch as 55 seems quite dangerous as amd state 62 max for this cpu, i dont understand the difference between cpu temp and core temp. i have fitted the resisters included with the h70 to slow the fans down to 1600rpm instead of the standard 1900rpm as the noise is pretty loud on full speed.

the limit is 62 yet 55 is just fine. if you hit 62 then just cut off what ever is putting pressure on the system. then lower your OC or voltage(if the system would stay stable).
