Overclocking 1090T on an MSI 870A-G54 board w/ aftermarket heatsink.


I have this in my current setup:
MSI 870A-G54 Mobo
AMD 1090T x6 w/ ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
4gb OCZ 1600 ram
X-FX Radeon 6850 1gb GPU

Here is a link to my CPU-Z "reports", since I'll most likely be asked for it: http://imgur.com/Sauhd

I am looking to OC a little more, but I'm brand new to OCing anything, so I'm looking for a few tips. I'm 100% stable at the current x17 OC, but have not gone any further for fear of messing with voltages as I have no idea what I'm doing exactly. My Temps for my Cores are at 30-34C consistently, gaming or not gaming.. doesn't matter. My socket temps sit around 40c (TMPIN0) at all times.

From stats alone, does it appear safe to venture further? and if so, what should I be changing in my bios?

  1. Just push the multiplier up near 4.0ghz and watch the temps. Anything below 60c under load is fine.. i
  2. max operating temp is 55-62c
    As Al1234 says,just increase the multiplyer only,I had my 1090t at 3.9Ghz,just remember,not all CPU's will oc the same,GL

  3. The maximum core temperature for the Phenom II series is 65*C

    I can clock my Phenom II x6 1065t stock @ 2.9ghz up to 4.1ghz @ 1.5125v

    Cooling is a major factor in seeing this series of CPUs perform. I'm using a Cooler Master V6 (most recent revision) and I get gaming temps well below 40*C and idle temps 20-25*C.

    Your rig is almost identical to mine, use core temp to watch your temps you should have no problem hitting higher than me in terms of your core speeds.

    Oh nooooossss :o Don't overclock on that board,d00d..It will eckshplodify!

    No it is NOT safe to even run an x6 chip on that board @ stock,even!

    Ignore this guy that cpu will be fine.

    I'll take your word for it though.

    PS: Is there a way to monitor the new wattage of the CPU?
