i managed to overclock my phenom ii 1055t to 3.5 ghz with this parameters in the bios (asus M4A87TD/USB3); bus speed: 250 HT Link: 2000 NB Freq: 2000 ram: ddr3 1333 (cas all auto) i didnt want to touch voltages since my vrm doesnt have heatsink and im only on 4+1 phase. using Thermaltake Contac 29 BP, i was able to maintain temp to only 54 C max with tuniq tx2 compound. so far i did some prime 95 and passed 1 test after 20 mins. and didnt continue. played some games and did some benchmarks and didnt run into any hangs, bsod, crash, etc. my question is, what was i did safe and correct??? will this not cause my mobo or any part of my system to get bad soon??? any suggestions are welcome.
