Overcloking my phenom 2 1075t

Hallo I wanna know where is the amd phenom 2 1075t locked at what ghz and how do I overclock it in a ECS A890gxm-a mainboard I'm new to this an will really like to get smarter in overclocking

Phenom2 1075t. 3.0ghz
ECS A890gxm-a
16gig dominator platinum 1866
2x asus 6870 in crossfire

Thanks :pt1cable:

  1. Here's a cut-n-paste from a how-to I posted for a 1045t.

    It details the process of speeding up the reference clock and then slowing down all but the CPU so that the end result is an overclocked CPU.


    I have my 1045t OC'd to 3.4 Ghz with all 6 cores running. It could go higher but, I'm limited by heat because I can't fit a bigger cooler in my case.

    I recommend getting some free software first. CPU-Z and HWmonitor, and prime95.

    CPU-Z will show you frequencies, voltages and ram timings.

    HWmonitor will show you temps. *Be warned* HWmonitor was showing my core temps 10 degrees lower than they actually were. The temp labeled "TMPIN2" was actually tracking perfectly with the core temps shown in AMD Overdive. So look for the highest temperature other than your video card. (many video cards can safely run at hotter temps than your CPU.) The hottest one on my Gigabyte 990 fxa ud3 (other than the video card) is the core temp. Try to keep it below 55C under full load.

    Prime95 is the program that will stress test your computer to see if it can remain stable and cool under load. 2hrs of the blend test with no errors and no overheating is a general rule of thumb for a stable OC.

    Now for the fun stuff.

    Go into your BIOS and lower the multiples for your CPU and your Ram by a few steps. (The 1045t won't let you increase the multiplier above stock)
    Then disable turbo (aka "core performance boost" )
    Then find your CPU Host clock control and set it to "manual"
    Then You should be able to change the "CPU Frequency" (I'll call it FSB) (This is before the multiplier, so it will be low. Mine started at 200)
    Now increase that variable by a bit.

    I recommend balancing your FSB and your "memory clock" (RAM) multiplier to a point where your ram is back down to stock speeds after you bump the FSB. So raise your FSB to something like 250 then adjust your RAM multiplier down so that your RAM us running at or near stock speeds.

    Now move on to your CPU clock ratio. With the faster FSB, you will be able to run your CPU at higher frequencies with a lower-than-stock multiplier. I eventually took mine all the way back up to 13.5 with a final frequency of 3.4 Ghz.

    I would recommend starting with a lower multiple that gets you just a couple hundred Mhz boost over stock at first. Then test for stability and heat. Run prime 95 for at least 30 minutes if you want to see your hottest temps. The blend doesn't get things hot until about the third bank of tests.

    If things look good, go back into the BIOS and bump the multiplier some more and re-test.

    My MB got rather ambitious with the voltages when I left it in auto, so use CPU-Z to keep an eye on core voltages. Many recommend just staying under 1.45 volts. I recommend not going any higher than you need to for a given clock speed. This will help keep heat down. I ended up using a negative offset "CPU voltage control" of -0.075 volts. This brought my core voltages down to about 1.344v at full load.

    *note* I'm scraping the floor on voltage with my particular chip/speed. One notch lower and I get BSOD. You may be able to go a little lower or you may need a little more voltage for your chip and clock speed.

    Now just test and adjust and repeat.

    Generally speaking:

    BSOD means you need more voltage, and/or less speed.

    Overheating means you need less voltage and/or less speed. (or a better cooler for your CPU.)

    If you get to the point where your temps are good and your computer is sable, and you still want to go faster (than ~3.4Ghz), you can go back and bump up the FSB. But remember to adjust your RAM multiplier back down to stock-ish speeds.

    You can OC your RAM later, but that gets a little more complicated as you may have to adjust CAS timings and RAM voltages to make it work. Keeping your RAM at stock speeds should give you one less thing to worry about while you probe the limits of your CPU.

    Good luck!
  2. tnx man I'll let u know if I'm stranded again tnx for all the help. :D
  3. My ECs motherboad is different under coli frequency control there's only cpu frequency , cpu voltage , NB frequency ,, HT frequency and cpu/HT reference clock ( MHz), auto detect dimm/pci CLK ,spread spectrum , a nother cpu voltage , dimm voltage ,nb/ht voltage , sb voltage and sideport voltage

    Under memory configuration there's memory clock mode ,memclock value , DRAM timing mode bank interleaving and channel interleaving

    So ok still in the dark about all af thise every time I'm traying to set something I have to CMOS. Please help me with this

    Tnx :D
  4. "CPU/HT Reference Clock (MHz)" is your "FSB".

    You may have to select "manual" for CPU frequency ctrl in order to be able to change your reference clock.

    Memory clock mode will probably have to be set to manual before you can adjust them back down.
  5. I did set everything to manual thas all that I can change
  6. Can you change the "CPU/HT Reference Clock (MHz)"?

    If so, set it to 210 and see if so, try it and see how it works.

    If you can't change it, then you probably can't overclock that CPU with that board.
  7. And the nb frequency?
  8. "Auto" if you can.

    Otherwise, just keep adjusting the multiplier to keep it close to stock.
  9. Y if I go over 3.7 ghz it does not want 2 boot but one of my Friends got the same cpu and his cpu go's to 4.2 no prob?
  10. Not all chips are the same. (Not even when they are the same exact model number)

    They are only guaranteed to perform at stock settings. Beyond that there are no guarantees.
  11. Oky tnx for all your help man
