I would like to know if its possible to hit 4.2mhz (Stable) with AMD 1090T using the Crosshair iii motherboard.

It is possible but it will depend on the chip. Some can do over 4Ghz stable and some will hit a wall at 4Ghz.

If a 965 can do 4.2Ghz on air the 1090T should also be able to the same if you get lucky enough. It's luck of the draw like every other Black Edition CPU, one will always clock higher than other. For example I have a buddy that has a B50 that will not do more than 3.9Ghz, but then there are a few here that have gotten theirs over 4.1Ghz. So it's basically hit or miss. Water will indeed help you get a higher clock but only if the CPU is capable of pushing those extra mhz.

Ok, so basically it all depends on the CPU correct?
Does it also matter on the motherboard? cause I seen a few ppl hit pretty good OC on the Crosshair IV as well.

Yes.

The Crosshair III and IV's can do high FSB, for example if I lower my multiplier to about 11x and I lower my DRAM frequency to 800Mhz I can push the FSB all the way to 340 and still attain a stable overclock.

Not sure about the MSI or GB models..

That is quite interesting. Well I have the Crosshair III + 1090t.

So have you tried fining the highest possible overclock? Did you hit a wall?

No, I will try once I get home. I tried once and I BSOD on at 4.3. Right now I have everything back to normal and I will start from scratch. Any suggest what to start with?

PsychoSaysDie should be able to give you the exact settings you need for a 4.3Ghz overclock.

The only x6 i have tinkered with is the 1055T, I was only able to get 4Ghz @ 1.46v.

4.2-4.3 needs alittle bit more juice for stability. In the 1.52-1.55v range but is a great performer when running that fast.


Ok, what should I put for the Multiplier and Frequency?

Well, that's your theory. You would also think that C2Q's can hit similar overclocks as their C2D counterparts, but they can't. I had a 1.86ghz C2D that ran at 3.45ghz on stock voltage yet my Q6700 2.66ghz will only hit 3.15ghz on the same motherboard with the same memory no matter what the voltage or multiplier.

It doesn't necessarily work as well with more cores.


Im going by what I have seen here at toms and other sites. The x6's are similar to the x4's with the exception of voltage and heat threshold, everything else is basically the same. The C2Q's are sandwiched C2D's so you a cannot compare them to the x4's/x6's.

I'd use 20X210 to start then fine tune it later.


Ok, I will try that when I get home. By the way are all 6 cores activated?

True

But isn't the overclock limited to what the weakest core can achieve? Therefore, the more cores, the more odds a weak link will hold back 5 other cores.


Correct but like I said, its luck of the draw, some clock higher than others. I have seen 1090T's that cannot do 4.2Ghz stable, but then again I have seen them go up to 5Ghz so it all depends on the chip you get. Same as a few here on Toms that have 965's that cannot do more than 4Ghz, but then again you have a few that have achieved 4.3Ghz and beyond.

I got to the desktop but it crashes under load or Stress testing with Prime95 or AMD AOD @ 4.2Ghz.

Why don't you guys throw in some benchmark scores with these 6 core overclocks, it would be nice to see what they do in that area.

Most reviews don't bench the overclocks they just bench the stock speed, it would be even better to have a stock vs OCd comparison of the added performance.

You'll be benching to achieve your stable overclock anyway, so it will help enlighten those of us watching the 6 core progress and that are also considering going the 6 core route.

That would be pretty sweet.

What do you think Psycho? I say start a thread and get all the x6 users in there to post some OC's.

4220 - 1.46volts 211 mhz + multiplier (no pcie or NB overclock), air cooling around 42-55-60 stressed, not really a good idea to go above 1.46vs on air cooling methinks ;p

Here are some benchmark results for overclocking a 1090t x6 with prime95 benchmarking


stock 3.2..............1024k=15.29 1280k=19.34 1536k=23.47 1792k=28.58 2048k=32.18 2560k=42.59 3072k=51.44 3584k=62.00 4096k=70.29

overclocked 4.33....1024k=11.26 1280k=14.24 1536k=17.53 1792k=21.44 2048k=23.40 2560k=30.53 3072k=38.80 3584k=45.35 4096k=49.80


here is a screen shot of the test scores



I hope this is what your looking for

More cores draw more power which produces more heat. So, you cannot overclock a hexacore as much as a dual or quad core with the same cooling. Thus, you will see higher temps overclocking a 6-core than a quadcore.
