Can I overclock an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T?

The default setting of the processor are 3.2GHz. Can I overclock this to 4.0GHz? This is not the Black Edition btw and my motherboard is 970A-UD3 if that helps.

  1. mb 3.8 for sure .... idk about anymore than that
  2. 1090T is a black edition processor...

    so, can you overclock it to 4.0Ghz..?
    Yes, you can.. :D
  3. Every chip is different.

    Your motherboard should be able to handle the OC, but how high you can go while keeping the CPU stable, will vary between different chips, even with the same exact model number.

    You could go higher than 4Ghz or you could get stuck just a couple hundred Mhz over stock clock.

    For an 'addict' that's pretty low. Don't discourage the dude. Even a 1045 could probably cross 4 easily, this is meant to go at least 4.5

    DUD YOUR PROCESSOR IS A BEAST, it's sole purpose of existance is overclocking, how could that even be a question?
  5. At salh, 4.5Ghz on a 1090T is very rare and for stability would likely require very high voltage and at least custom liquid cooling. 4.0Ghz possible but by no means guaranteed. Without a hyper 212+ or better you won't be getting to 4.0Ghz stable.

    At OP, what kind of cooling are you utilizing?

    The truth is what it is.

    And what's low about "higher than 4Ghz"?
  7. phenom/thuban chip designed to hit wall at 4.3 - 4.4 Ghz at the "normal" voltage..
    Sometimes it's need more than 1.6v..dangerous voltage for this chip
    Except using LN2, more than that is pretty impossible..

    and remember, each chip is different..
    that's means the overclockability between chip is different too..
    some lucky men can reach 4Ghz with easily, the others even can't reach 3.8 stable..


    I've never heard that 1045T hit 4.5 Ghz "easily"..
    well, link please.. :)
  8. Both of you, the 4.5 parts was an estimate based on similar cpus, never OCed it myself but with water i GUESS that would be around the limit
    And 4/0 on the other hand is pretty basic, not guaranteed is for 0.0001% who're just plain unlucky, 245,745,945,1045 often get 4GHz, "55 most of the time 4.1, and so on, so i guess 90 is pretty good

    So, if you're overclock 1045, at least the clock speed is 4.5Ghz, right?

    by the way, I've never heard that 1045T hit 4.5 Ghz with that easily
    well, link please.. :)

    well.. you can't suggest just based on guessing without any fact,
    or it will be a miss leading.. :)
  10. I actually own and have overclocked a 1045t.

    3.6 was a struggle, 3.4 was easy-ish. 4.0 will not happen with my example of the 1045t.

    You must be specially unlucky, because the 945s i have experienced with did easily go past 3.8-9

    I didnt say 45 wiould go to 4.5, i said it would be no big deal if it went to 4, but THIS should go to 4.5, because 975s often do and even x65s
  13. Overclocking 6 cores is not as easy as overclocking 4. Some people actually deactivate cores to reach higher clock speeds. (and lower temps)

    man... :D

    so you the rank the overclockability of processor based on the number of cpu series? :ouch:

    Because 1045 is bigger number than 980, that's means 1045 should have higher clock when everclocked than 980..? is that what you mean..?

    man..
    i can't stop laughing..:lol:
