Solved OC'ing a 1055t on what seems to be a limited BIOS? Tags: AMD BIOS CPUs Overclocking Product Last response: November 13, 2012 11:14 PM in Overclocking Share JLiRD808 November 2, 2012 1:52:04 AM I got my 1055t up from 2.8 to 3.28 just by increasing the CPU FSB frequency. However, I think my BIOS functions are limited I can increase the FSB freq but not the NB ratio/frequency. The BIOS is the American Megatrends V1.08. Here's the mobo specs: MSI Global – Mainboard - K9N2GM-FIH]MSI Global – Mainboard - K9N2GM-FIH Here was one of the easier to read tuts for the 1055t in an MSI BIOS. I dont have any of that options regarding NB frequency/ratio. I cant even see my NB frequency! It's also a "light" tutorial, so he doesn't even go into increasing voltage. http://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/zardon/overclocki... I'm kind of a beginner/intermediate OC'er so if I sound dumb, I apologize. This is only my 2nd CPU I've tried to unlock. My first was a BE, so all I had to do was increase the multiplier. Do I just need a mobo with a better BIOS for OC'ing? Can I bring this up some more safely or just leave it at 3.28? THANKS!!!
