so I completely got no experience with overclocking a cpu or even a gpu
anyone who can help me how to get my 1090t BE to 3.8GHZ or 4.0GHZ or whatever is best.
At the moment I have a Corsair A50 on my 1090t but will soon upgrade to a Corsair H80 since H100 doesnt fit in this damned Core 3000
I tried google-ing about how to overclock this but I really have no idea what to do because I might do something wrong.
So anyone who can teach me step by step how to overclock this 1090t and make the ram to work at 1866mhz if possible using Asrock's UEFI
(I dont want my dominator platinum stuck at DRAM 667 lol)
AMD Phenom II X6 1090t BE
Corsair A50 CPU Cooler
Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB (2x4GB) 1866mhz
Asrock 990FX Extreme 4
best advice i can give u is to watch as many youtube videos as u can even if its not ur own cpu being overclocked or ur own motherboard its all about the same and it will give u a idea dont be scared just try just start with going from ur 3.2ghz up step by step dude just remember when u come to using more volts when it starts turning off remember more volts mean more heat. just try keep ya chip as cool as u can ur max temp is 62c so stay under it. use prime95 which u can download off the net for ur stress test.
first tip for ya just use ya multiplier to start with...
I have the ASRock 970 Extreme3, The bios is vary much similar as your 990FX. I got 4.16 ghz with these settings.
FSB = 225 (stock 200)
Multiplier = 18.5 (stock 15 I think)
Dram = 900mhz (stock 667mhz) DDR3 1800mhz
Dram Voltage = 1.6v
Turbo core = Disabled
Load Line Calibration = Disabled
Vcore = 1.47v (stock 1.27 - 1.4v with turbo)
C1E = Disabled
Cool n' Quiet = Disabled
Spread Spectrum = Disabled
CPU-NB = 2925mhz (stock 2000mhz)
CPU-NB Voltage = 1.32v (stock 1.170v)
HT = 2400mhz (stock 2000mhz
HT Voltage = 1.220v (stock 1.220v)
NB Voltage = 1.160v (stock 1.140v) (helps my RAM OC)
Please don't just go into bios and set all of these to what I have it set to, This is just close to what you will need to get a good OC, And Only OC just 1 thing at a time, every chip and board OC's differently.
This is my setup btw, My CPU is a bit different along with my RAM.
Also you can try to use the ASRock AXTU Overclcoking software to OC within windows to test and OC before you set it in bios, but it wont disabled C1E and Cool n' Quiet which needs to be disabled along with Turbo boost and Spread Spectrum.
