OC a Phenom II x6 1100T

Hi all. I was wondering about OCing my 1100T. I used AI suite (I know) to get it to 3.8 ghz, and it runs fine there, but I should be able to get well over 4 ghz with the cooler I have on it--an Antec Kuhler H2O cooler--keeps the CPU at < 30C most of the time. It's currently running at 232.4 X 16.5 and 1.375V. I ran it back to default and tried tweaking it in the BIOS, but couldn't get a stable OC, and I didn't want to chance frying the CPU, so I just put it back to the AI suite settings and it runs fine. I've read where the 1100T can be OCed to at least 200 x 20.5 at 1.4 volts, and I should be able to get there but so far no luck. I've read the guides here but I'm still fuzzy on the process. Any ideas? I'd love to get all the performance I can out of this rig, but I don't want to do anything stupid (for a change)... ;)
Specs are:
M5A97 mobo
8 gigs of G.Skill ripjaw 1333 RAM
1100T CPU
Corsair 650W PSU
Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

  1. should be read guide in http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/258573-29-black-edition-overclock-guide-raising-multiplier and so you'll know which ones you need to raise,
    i think your RAM not strong , so here due to overclock the FSB too high so that the RAM will go up, maybe your ram ran over than 1500 or more.
    So ... Overclock CPU BE overclock use multiplier. of course it would be easier, such as maintain keep fsb 200 x multiplier 17 / 18 / 19. Go back to default / Clear Cmos / reset setting , try overclock just raise Multiplier step by step and keep FSB. find vcore from 1.45v or more till you get stable
  2. In my experience with the 1100T, It is pretty stable at 3.8 on most systems at stock voltage. But beyond that, it needs a kick in the pants voltage wise. Bump her up to 1.5V, and if needed 1.55V / 4ghz and all should be well. Just watch the temps under load.

    Also remember to blow out the PC often and keep the radiator clean or temps can slowly creep up over time and before you know it, the system starts to loose stability.
