Help please. I'm new to overclocking and have been able to slightly overclock but are having problems.
-AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
-Gigabyte GA 870A-UD3
-Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
-A Cheap Logysis 480w PSU
-7200 RPM 250GB Seagate
FSB- 227 mhz
Turbo Core- disabled
NB/HT Multiplier- x7
The max frequency I've been able to achieve was 3.18 ghz but I've heard of several people overclocking to 3.5 ghz on stock cooler.
If I put the FSB to 230 it BSODS
What am I setting wrong?
Is my PSU to weak(I will be getting a new 600+ watt PSU anyway, so no worries if it is the PSU)?
Not enough cooling? My idle temps are 21C and 46C running prime95 when i OC to 3.18 ghz.
Thanks for all the suggestions, but using what everyone has recommend it fails to boot.
I've lowered the ram from 6.66 to 5.33 with the FSB at 250 mhz, but it failed to boot
I used the settings wisecracker suggested, but it failed to boot.
I played with the settings for about 10 min, but couldnt find the right settings
If I can't even hit 3.5 GHZ how will I ever hit 4 GHZ?
keep in mind its DDR ram when ur looking at the numbers in the bios, so cut your current ram speed in half and go one speed under that, for max stability try and clock back to your original speed profile. I literally JUST got done doing this lol, im running prime rite now : )
