The CPU as this "Turbo mode" thing going on where if 3 or more cores are idle then it will kick them up by 500mhz blah blah blah to 3.6GHZ.
How does this work if i wanted to OC more? to say... 4GHz ALL THE TIME? Or isnt this possible on these chips? Would i have to OC to 3.6GHz and the turbo would make it 4.0GHz?
Another question i have is with the 2000MHz speed. If i was to use the RAM at 2000MHz what do YOU think the best FSB settings would be? I was with Intel before and i know the FSB is different in AMDs as they can have a much higher Multiplier?
All in all my NEW setup would be
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
Asus motherboard M4A89TD PRO AMD AM3 DDR3 ATX
G-Skill 4GB Trident DDR3 PC16000-2000Mhz Cas9 Kit
XFX 1GB 4890 XXX Edition
Corsair H50 Hydro CPU cooler
Corsair 750W HX Modular PSU
I will just say i know AMD had away with the FSB and the 1:1 ratio was intel only i believe? And they got rid of that in the i5 and i7's?
Am i best just letting it stay at 3.2GHz and then 3.6GHz turbo.
This will also be used for gaming and watching blurays also general browsing and photoshop.
Thank you i hpe you can answer, isnt much a problem more of a question really.
change your cpu to amd 1055t because it's overclock same 1090t both reach to 4-4.2.and you have a good cooler but if your case has lot sapce buy noctua nh-d14.for more review of noctua: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1212/1/
noctua is 89$ and corsair with push and pull is about 110$.
and your graphic card buy 5830 or 5850 because 4xxx series don't support directX11. if you want better overclocking buy corsair xms 1600mhz cas 7.
and your main bord is good but if you use more than 2cf buy
corsshair iv formula if not it's good mainbord.
this is my idea.
The graphics card i can and will change later, am only asking about the OC and how the mb,ram and cpu will work.
again i already have the H50 so i wont be getting another untill i try this.
Case Antec 900
I will never use more than 2CF, (2 crossfire?) When i get a 5870 thats all i will be getting lol.
All i need to know really is when its all together..... 1090T, M4A89TD, G-Skill DDR3 PC16000-2000Mhz will the ram run at 2000mhz (1000mhz) in dual-channel right out of the box or will i need to OC it to 2000mhz (1000mhz) and if so, what setup would you use?
Oh btw is the Push n pull where on the outside rear you have a fan intake > then inside the case the radiator < Fan outtake?
Its not that am asking to just OC the CPU its that am wondering if the RAM will be at 2000mhz at the stock CPU speeds mate. If it only runs at say 1600mhz for example, then i will need to start OCing, thats why am asking if 1, it will run at 2000mhz out of the box and 2, if i do need to OC both ram and cpu if the turbo can be disabled (which i know now i can)
I have 1055T overclocked to 4.0 Ghz 100% of the time
You need to raise the voltage for the CPU/NB voltage
and also raise the voltage for the CPU Vcore
I can give you the exact numbers if you need
the CPU Vcore is set to 1.44V
Turbo works and is nice, but to be honest I really need the extra speed when all 6 cores are working
C1E and Cool N quiet work great, but will make your overclocking extremelly unstalbe. You won't be able to overclock as much, but you will save some cash in the electric bill (I suppose, I still haven't confirmed this theory)
I wonder what is better
1) 4.0Ghz all the time
2) less speed, but a more efficient machine
I am not even 100% sure if an overclocked stable machine is even possible with C1E and Cool N Quiet
Don't worry about the supported RAM list the manufacturers only ever test a small handful but the corsair you selected looks good. If you want a cheap case I have this one and its fine http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172779 just make sure you buy 4 120mm fans
Thanx for the help guys when i get this running i will test it without any OC with the Corsair ram. Then i will do little OCs at a time to see how stable it is in prime. Hoping the H50 and new case would be enough cooling
Can anyone recomend me some really really silent fans please lol. I need 1 80x15x15 for the back MOBO tray.
Also need 2 120mm Fans for the bottom and side. Any thats great and silent but black, must be black lol. LED no, enough LEDS already lol.
