Help with 1055t Overclock

Hello,I have recently bought an aftermarket cooler (Noctua NH-14) and was planning to achieve an overclock of 4.0 if not 3.8. But the weird thing was i couldn't even push it to 3.5. I keep getting blue screen when running prime95. Could you guys please help me find a solution.
Cpu:AMD x6 1055t
Mobo: M4N98TD EVO
Ram: G.SKILL 4GB ddr3
Psu: Corsair 650w
Gpu: gtx 465

Here is the message of BSOD

  1. error 124 is cpu related. Try increasing vcore.
  2. Ok ill try it out buy I originally set the processor voltage to 1.45v isnt going over 1.5v risky?
  3. Yes, you shouldn't need to go over 1.5.

    Is your memory's timings and voltage set to factory specs ?

    If you can post pics of cpu_z with the cpu,memory and SPD tabs showing ?
  4. i have 1055T 4ghz much minimal 1.52v (this real stable not validation) if vcore below this voltage u can get BSOD 0x000000124. and alway keep temperatue below 57C, i know max temp fulload test stress 60C. Oc safely !
  5. Hope you can view this with no problem my camera is not so great.

    I've ran prime95 for an hour on these settings and once again recieved BSOD.
    Here are my Bios settings

    wow 1.52v isnt that a bit high. I dont want to give up my computer in 2-3 years just for .2ghz higher >.<. But plz give me your bios settings so i can some what figure out why my 3.8ghz isnt stable at 1.45v
  7. oh yeah 3.8 1.44 ~1.45... i have and stable it , isee your setting ram too high from jedec and voltage RAm (Vdim too High max 1.65 ).
    try this
    votage processor : 1.44~ 1.45 ok
    Vdim : 1.602 ~ 1.65 (+0.60 max)
    set ratio ( 3:8 ) 1066 set 7-7-7-20 1T (DC0/DC1/both)
    CPU NB: +0.025
    HT link : keep on 2000 - 2500
    if your voltage under 1.45 it's like recommended still safely for long time.
    don't worry about drop ratio but this can first time for stable on 3.8 Ghz
    try...!

    test your OC use IBT for Fast maybe 15minutes for longtime use Prime95



    in my OC , Power Now& C1E still enabled you can see multiplier run at x4 and FSB 272

    Is this the correct settings cause i received BSOD again. Change ram settings to ( 3:8 ) 1066 set 7-7-7-20 1T (DC0/DC1/both). But i have no idea what (DC0/DC1/both) settings are dont think it matter.
    Does this mean my cpu is not capable of achieving an overclock even at 3.8ghz?

  9. hmm if you have BSOD it's mean your setting not right..
    please post your screenshoot CPU-Z , i will see your Setting RAM JEDEC and

    in bios your Target RAM DRAM must 1067
    DRAM timming Control : you can set by 7-8-8-21- 28(Row cycle time )


    in Advanced : cool n Quite disabled, C1E disabled ,
  10. if you go above 1.5v is heat the problem? My Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 is stock at 1.475 and this gets me to 3.8 but with some issues. If I bump it to 1.55 I can run at 4.1 with temps of 45.9 with prime95 and AMD overdrive.
  11. Im kinda in the same boat.
  12. I was wrong mine was at 1.425v stock.

    Give me a sec might take me a while to be able to set things up.
    Mean while i still cant believe this guy got 4.0 so easily. I tried doing exactly what he did failed..

  14. yep your right right, but you have different system with guide maybe RAM, SSD, PSU, Cooler. in 3.8 Gha need Good cooler

    remember different system cause diffrent temperature & voltage !
  15. if my temp are low can I get away with those voltages? 4.2 Gha at 45.9 with 1.55v.
  16. Try these settings as i own a 1055t beast and run it at 4130Ghz 24/7absolutely no probs...In your BIOS under ADVANCED SETTINGS disable AMD C1E support,Virtualisation and AMD Cool & Queit.

  17. Wow it's sad to see how much work it takes to overclock a 1055t. I debated AMD hex-core vs Intel, and ended up with the i7 980X. Probably the best thing about it is that with my Rampage III Extreme, I just set the target frequency to 4.21GHz and it does the work for me. No BSOD, don't have to disable virtualization (probably the only reason to have 6 cores is virtualization), and it also performs better than the entire Phenom II lineup. Only thing is you'd have to shell out $1000...

    I gave your settings a try but during the set up i noticed that my North Bridge Frequency does not have x(number) it only shows the MHz. For example 2154Mhz and goes up. HT Link Frequency doesn't have x(number) also and it also shows Mhz. What should i set those Frequencies to?
    I really think there is no end to this but can you teach me how to overclock so i can keep messing around with the settings?
  19. Dude that should be fine i have taken my NB freq. out to 2500Mhz before i crashed and burned. Leave hype thread Link frequency at stock 2000Mhz it doesn't really make any noticeable performance difference.It's no fun setting the target frequency and let the mobo do the work like turbo core and all that simpified crap.GIVE ME HOURS OF CRASHES ANY DAY by the way my cpu cost $195.00 au. Not $1000 i bet any money your cpu isn't 5 x better performance wise
    By the way what psu do you have.Because seriously mate if you have a crappy unit it will give you headaches.This cpu will draw over 400+ watts fully cranked up doing some serious stuff and if you throw in a couple of ati 5970 oc'd you're talking some serious wattage 1100 + for stability and a bit of headroom

    Yeah i was wondering about my psu. I have a Corsair 650w. But im pretty sure i have enough cause im only running a Gtx 465, 1 hard drive 1 dvd burner and about 6 fans. Plus i heard that corsair psu performs more than what it really says it does. But the weird thing was when i was messing with the settings pushing the Processor Voltage to 1.45v, cpuz and hw monitor showed lower voltages something like 1.37v i was really surprised when i saw that. Do they actually perform accurately?
  21. Bro all you do is download cpuid or hardware monitor, check your voltages, open amd overdrive and slowly crank everything that we have discussed like multiplier and cpu voltage etc. The changes are noticed pretty much instantly by cpuid. Just keep going till you reach your max than back off a little so you get stability.Do you oc your graphics card.If you do than you will pretty much max out your psu and believe me i know your corsair is a really good unit.I had an i7 720 l/c'd 2xcorsair ssd's 240gig, 3xTB 7200rpm, 2x5970 oc'd.5 x led fans.Pump for liquid cooling. My corsair 1000w died in the you know what but i gave it hell before it did.I know its hard to part with your 650 watter but honestly it might need a break ha ha....Make sure to make notes on the settings then install settings in to your bios.Only do your testing with overdrive.Don't follow overdrive for temp or volts it's always out.Use cpuid hardware monitor..Oh yeah GO THE MIGHTY WESTSTIGERS!!!

    O yeah i have tried many many settitngs but this is hella weird. I do use HW monitor and Cupid Cpuz but idk if their accurate. This is what i got from my settings. I set my vcore to 1.45v and the other settings seems to be fine. Disabled CnQ CLL and Virtualization. Setting clock speed at 3.8ghz, able to boot up. Ran prime95 for 15 mins and then i got BSOD. But during the test you can see that on HW Monitor that my max vcore is 1.44v but it constantly drops all the way to somewhere like 1.31v and stays around 1.35v. Tried raising voltage to 1.5v but same result it drops to somewhere between 1.36-1.38v (it doesn't show in pic because i wasn't running prime95) I mean when Im running prime95 isnt my voltage suppose to reach its peek setting and stay at that setting? I guess your right i could be my power supply, but i used http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp and placed in all my spects even the overclock MHz and Voltage. All it says is around 600w.
    Oh and another thing i noticed is when i set voltage from a gap like 1.35v to something like 1.45v the system turns off for like 2 seconds for adjusting voltage that is normal. But in my case it boots after 2 seconds right after that it turns off then it boots again. This is weird.... now it makes me wonder is it my PSU or Mobo.

    I did all the in the settings but i dont see CPU Vid in bios. But anyhow I think I know why my system wont run stable for anything above 3.7ghz is because it requires greater voltage. What's messed up about my system is that what ever voltage i set for example: 1.4125v for 3.69ghz, during the prime95 test voltages tends to drop by 0.05- 0.07v.
    When i tried to set vcore 1.5v for 4.004ghz while running prime95 once again voltage lowers to somewhere like 1.36v. That is a difference of 0.14v... WTF no wonder i keep getting BOSD. Dropping from 1.5 - 1.36v stupid computer...

    I'm not sure how i can fix this. Guess i just cant go anywhere above 3.69ghz with this kinda problem. I have disabled CnQ, and all those, just don't know whats up with the voltage drop.

    Any ideas?
  25. this list my vcore stable for OC 1.44 ~1.45 for 3.8Ghz, 1.49~1.5v for 3.92Ghz, 1.525 v for 4 Ghz, 1.58v for 4.12 Ghz
    i see you do not something with your RAM.. .RAM and RAM setting Ratio/Multiplier/ Timming..?
    The other stability overclock depend on RAM setting ...

    I've tried countless settings its just killing me. Did so much research, tried to follow many guides in the end = BSOD or freeze during start up. I mean i have a good cooler Noctua NH-14. Runs about 35C on full load under 3.69Ghz.
    I gave all of your suggestions a try buy none of them seem to work. I really think its the voltage problem. Keeps dropping on me under full load. Check your Vcore with prime95 if see if it drops by any chance.

    These are the settings that i have tried for 4Ghz
    FSB: 286
    CPU Mulit: 13.5/14
    NB F: 2600Mhz
    HT: 2000Mhz
    DRAM F: 1525Mhz
    Ram V: max for me is 1.64v
    CPU/NB V: 1.35v
    NB V: 1.28v
    HT V: 1.28v

    I have messed around with the settings and nothing seems to work. Have i reached the end of the line for my CPU Overclocking capabilities? Or there is more for me to learn?
  27. your DRAM 1525 too high from JEDEC ! go bios lol ,
    set ram in memory setting 9-11-11-27. if stable you or drop your RAm target from 1525 to 1066/ 1333

    vcore 1.35 not enough for 3.6 , this 1.38v ~1.40 v for 3.6 Ghz.. you will get BSOD 0x0000100024

    Nono thats not it I set my ram to 1066 as i raise my FSB it goes to 1525. Vcore I set to 1.4125v and i just droppes to 1.36 by itself during prime95 but if i stop the test it jumpes back to 1.4125v.. hella strange right. Ill try out the ram memory settings. Thanks =)
  29. I'm telling you mate your psu is dying in the ass simple as that.Cannot handle your system oc'd.These cpu's really start sucking it out of your power point when you start overclocking past 3.5Ghz.Tell me, is it stable if you leave it under 3.5 does the volts e.t.c fluctuate ???.I bet they don't and it runs well.Psu can handle it.That is a safe oc.Over that your just being an addict and gambling on how long everything will last.I'm running my setup on a 800 watt psu.I run an oc'd Inno3d gtx295 platinum edition with the amd 1055t.4gig ddr3 1600 corsair ram. 5x 120mm fans 1x200mm fan a 150 gig raptor hd,wd black caviar 1tb.This is 100% stable @ 4130Ghz.On the windows7 windows experience i get 7.6 for everything except hard drive 5.9 I get 23145 on 3d mark vantage..I'M HAPPY

    I got it stable to 3.69ghz with 1.4125v Vcore. Just cant go past anything else. Wow man you got a kick ass system there GTX295 is one life sucker xD. Ill never reach that kinda benchmark. Im kinda on a budget right now, if its really my psu then i just gotta stay at a certain overclock. Not planning to upgrade until at least half a year. Thanks for you help =), Ive learned a lot.

    what should i do? RMA the board? Or just keep Overclock at 3.69ghz. Would you guys RMA just to achieve 4.0ghz? So many questions lol. How big of a difference is there between 3.7 and 4.0ghz?
  33. Keep it. if your oc stable. Don't go 4ghz for dailly this just for benchmark. I use 1055T for dailly max 3.8ghz , You can know this comparison speed cpu use cinebench 11.5 . Software not always use all speed cpu

    Alright thanks a lot man. Really appreciate your help and advices. Without you guy's suggestions i wouldn't have been able to go past 3.5ghz lol. Im new to this kinda stuff.
  35. Not much difference.Not noticeable anyway.You'll still love the grunt these cpu's have.Overclock your graphics card to see if it crashes in 3d mode (playing games).That might suggest your psu cannot handle much more than you haveThen run it at default settings see if it crashes while playing.At that oc your still getting better results than a stock x6 1100 be.Download MSI AFTERBURNER so easy to oc gpu and you get better fps playing games. ENJOY!!!
