Overclocking AMD 1100t advice/tips

Recommended Posts

Hey, been lurking this site for some time now and really like what I see. Been reading through countless pages learing about overclocking but still have a few questions. Read the review on the AMD 1100t here on OCC and used that processor for the build. After the build I get to the asus turbo evo program to start OC'ing and do the auto tuning tool and get the folllowing results

After it's all said and done I'm curious what I should be looking to change to get in the range of 4.0-4.2ghz without system crashing from instability. I have tried upping the multiplier a bit up to 4.0ghz but after ten min my system crashes. Not quite sure/fully understand what to do past the auto tune. Noticed in the OCC review it was able to hit 4.1ghz stable so my goal is in that range. Did take in to account I have a different setup but just not sure where to go from here additional component wise or setting wise. Fairly new to all teh OC'ing terminology but I'm eager to learn as much as I can.

I personally am not a fan of overclocking via software so id suggest that you do everything in your bios but if you're not comfortable with that go ahead and use whatever software you choose.

 

Secondly keep in mind that the people doing the reviews have a lot of experience with this type of thing so you may not be able to get the same results they do on your first try. Im not saying you wont but don't get discouraged if you don't.

 

If im not mistaken and that is a black edition processor you pretty much just want to increase the cpu multiplier one step at a time and then stabilty test using occt or prime 95 or whatever you choose. When your computer wont pass the stabilty test successfully increase your core voltage until it does pass or until your core temperatures get higher than you feel comfortable with. Then repeat both steps until you get the clock speeds you want pr your temperatures get too high.

 

Always keep an eye on your temperatures and reference amds website to find out what the maximum temp is for your processor. I always try to stay 5-10c below the maximum temp just in case the software im using isn't reporting the temp correctly.

 

Also some chips just clock better than others, for instance my Phenom II 955 may clock 200mhz better or worse than someone elses even if we have the exact same hardware.

 

Anyway good luck and let us know how everything goes.

Basically what Paradax said.

 

BE - Change multiplier + voltage if its not stable

 

Check for stability use Prime 95 or Intel Burn Test

 

Then also overclock your northbridge

 

Also turn off Turbo Core

 

These are all the basics. Visit my blog if you want to see how I overclocked my Phenom II.

 

@Paradax Seems like you get a PII. If you still need one, I'm still waiting for the seller to contact me back...

Is there any articles that you guys would suggest that I read? Still pretty new to a lot of terminology and such. Found a few sites with info but not a lot of first time frendly stuff. I tried going through bios but ended up crashing my system in the process so I'll try upping things one at a time.

So I've been fiddling with the bios way and manage to never get anything right but via software I get a little bit better results based on my minimal knowledge on this stuff. With these results in the pic I've entered those into bios and seem to be doing ok. running prime 95 now without a hiccup so far. Temps haven't been over 58c and generally stay between 52-56c. Am I in a good spot now or should I adjust something differently?

Soon as it hit the end of the 8k test on prime95 system blue screened. Generally, what is the first thing to look at when the system isn't stable? vcore? lower bus speed increase multiplier? Still trying to digest it all.

What was BSOD code? If it was 124 or 101, you need more VCORE

Until you use the BIOS it will always be a mystery I believe. Do you know the max speed your RAM can tolerate? Drop the cpu multi and up the MHz incrementally and memtest. Chances are the RAM is your limiting factor and not the CPU but it is all guess work until adjusted and tested. Of course the CPU's memory controller could always be blamed. Hard to tell unless you have other RAM to test.

 

Be sure to know your voltage limits on everything. Monitor temps. Deal with NB adjustments last, in my opinion. Know the default base settings so you can revert and document progress in writing.

 

Things I do but it has been some time ago:

Raise only CPU multi. and leave FSB @ 200 to not raise RAM speed. (or do ram first, either way works)

Keep CPU voltage (Vcore or VID) low as possible because it may rise when stressed.

Keep HT and NB as close to 2000MHz as possible. Raise NB eventually as tweak?

When reach max try drop multi and raise FSB (FID) to get higher ram speed or to test max speed.

Maybe try running at 1T and/or tighten clocks after max reached to tweak more out of it.

Ganged vs Unganged can't remember what it means.

Asynchronous allows memory divider.

 

If you go through the steps, you will get a feeling or sense as to the capability of CPU and RAM. Yes it takes a lot of time.

 

Last one I did was Phenom II 555 Calisto 4 cores unlocked, Prime95 8hr+ stable operation for example. RAM was the limiting factor. This was quite a good oc for an unlocked 555 I thought and rock solid. Motherboard was ASRock 870 EXTREME3 which loves to push the voltage under stress. Ripjaw ram was a tad disappointing but good enough.

Change the multi on CPU... 4ghz is easy as piss on one if those. Give it a bit more vcore maybe around 1.475-1.5 n leave fsb at 200mhz for now. Set multi at 20 and thatll give u 4ghz. And I'll be happy... Make sure u have adequate cooling as well

After several attempts I couldn't get my system to boot up without crashing at login screen. Once I get to where I am at in bios as I am with the evo program, any higher and I get a crash.

 

Got a different ram on the way to try out. Seems to be made better for overclocking. Learining something new can be frusterating. Getting somewhere, though.
