Overclocking AMD Phenom II x6 1100T issues


I am having problems trying to overclock my 1100T because I haven't very clear how to do it. If I do it only with the multiplier I can reach 19x - 3800MHz but sometimes Prime95 throws errors. If I do it "manual" I can reach 18x and 211 MHz for a total of 4008 MHz but the system is not so much stable. I have tweaked the core voltage @1.45v but when is on full load the system "down-volt" it @ 1.37v and continues been unstable.

How can I do for reach 4GHz in a stable configuration?

  1. one thing i ran into this morning when i was trying to overclock my athon II was that my voltages and clocks kept moving for power saving crap. if you get amd overdrive you can click the little green circle to put a red ring around it which fixes the voltage and multiplier within the operating system and helped my system stabilize. also you may need to lower your HT and RAM speeds if you increase your bus speed. Also, a small Northbridge voltage increase never hurt anyone. this may help you also, http://www.extremeoverclocking.com/reviews/processors/AMD_Phenom_II_X6_1100T_12.html
    remember no chip is the same so becareful before you make adjustments. never make too big of a leap.
