Watched one video and thought screw it only live once! So I jumped in there now the 1055t has a slow stock speed so I though me video rendering I might see a difference so I just it up to 3.2GHZ with 100% load at 38C with the Noctua D14 :D  :D  :D  Once question is about the RAM normally at 1333MHZ I had to take it down to something like 1237MHZ is that okay?

Also CPU Voltage is left on auto is that okay as well?

If it is then ASUS auto settings are great :D  :D  :D  Running prime 95 now :p  :p  :p  :p

post a complete set of your system ... its hard to give answer unless we know what your overclocking

Okay,

AMD Phenom II x6 2.8GHZ OC'ed to 3.2GHZ
4GB Corsair (Budget ram was 1333MHZ now 1237MHZ)
Noctua d14
ASUS M4N75TD
GTX 460
Win7 64 Bit ultimate

Well problem, my RAM was running slow so I overclocked it by about 33MHZ which did not seem alot now it won't boot what have I done?

After some downtime I reset the CMOS and Im back at stock speeds. Need better RAM! The case I'm using is the NZXT m59 Classic (: 4 Fans (:

at 3.2 GHz with increasing the FSB to 220 you only
get very little increase in speed of ram, if you want to
further increase the FSB to 250, cpu voltage +0.025 cpu nb let's auto, vdim maximum 1.65v at (+0.90), then the ram will get speed @800. disabled: c1e, cool n Quite, stabillity test
and if all is successful and your system get 3.5GHz 1600MHz ram. It very fast!

with an aftermarket heatsink like that, even air cooled you should be able to hit 3.5 easily with stable temps . Now you went with 1333 ram, so your going to want to get the ram as close a humanly possible to 1333. When your doing this you have a few factors.

Ram Ratio = 2:6 , 2:8, 2:10 ect ....
Core Clock ...
Multiplier....

So if you have the ram ratio at 2:8 and your core clock at 200 with the Multiplier at 20x

you would get 4.0 processor with 1600 MHz ram....

2:8 = 2x your processor speed/core clock i.e 200 = 400MHz or 4.00MHz
2:8 = 8x your core clock and you get 8 x 200 = 1600MHz

You then set all you ram timings manually, and then raise all voltages one above the base voltage .... i.e if you go in to your voltages and it currently at 1.2345v and the next increment would be 1.2456, you would raise it to 1.2456v from 1.2345v

However, you need to set the ram voltages to what manufacture recommends and DO NOT CHANGE THIS EVER. Normal is usually 1.65v, but this varies per Ram stick.

This is how you do an i7 1366, and i do not know if it is the same process, however this should give you a good idea of how things work .. I dont use AMD and wouldnt begin to know how to use the products

Well I tried a small overclock with the RAM and it said no to all of this and I had to CTR clear or whatever it's called. Do you have any suggestions of RAM which will allow me to 3.5 - 4.00 GHZ easy that work with the ASUS M4N75TD because I can't find any :(

not sure ... the best thing you could do is call the tech support for you motherboard aka asus and then ask them what is good ... ram is ram ...i dont think u need a specific brand ....but go on newegg and max out you board with ram .... 8 gb's is like 40 bucks now. and if you go past 1333 you will fry your ram ... try and stay a little under or as close to it as possible

Drop your Ram ratio to 1066 (3:8) set (auto : get 8-8-8-23) vdim + 0.060 (1.63v) max 1.65v

@majorgibly

I've researched all your build choices, no offense intended by my following comments and advice.

Unfortunately when overclocking is an after thought it reflects back upon all the hardware choices you made when overclocking was not in the thought processes.

If you had made some different choices in your build then overclocking even up to 4.0ghz would have been easily attainable for you, especially with the choice of CPU cooler you chose?

How long have you had this build in your possession?

It would be great if Newegg or where ever you bought the parts from, would allow trading the X6 1055T with an unlocked X6 1090T, (Newegg $20.00 difference), with low overclocking skills an unlocked multiplier would have been the best way for you to go, IMO.

There is a big difference between a build that overclocking was a total after thought, and a build completely planned to be overclocked, but the majority of us tend to learn the hard way, this is your first lesson.

A good end result overclock is always dependent on the hardware choices you make.

I'm curious, If you had no previous overclock plans why did you buy the Noctua?
March 7, 2011 8:42:59 PM

Because I want to overclock and I'm rendering 85% of the time so a cool CPU is beneficial to me.

I have had the build for 3 weeks, I have seen videos of people with this CPU and cooler hitting 3.5 - 4.0 GHZ.I will buy better RAM next pay-day (:
is my PC bad? ;(

for rendering in a word YES ... cause you will want alot of ram to render with and 64 bit editing software like after effects and premiere pro cs5 ... then u can manually set the amount of ram you want for adobe ... so i have 24gb rendering is insanely fast

for rendering do need ram also but no Overkill, 8gb is
enough as long as it has a vga are qualified,
especially editing video use proffesional card is faster like matrox,pinacle.
I use 4gb for video editing very fast render avi to dvd use power director 8.

So how can I increase the speed of rendering? how do I assign more RAM To Sony Vegas? I also want to get better RAM any ideas for fast RAM?

Thanks
