Does ddr2 have a higher nb oc then ddr3 would? My ddr2 systrm cant hold 3ghz nb but does 2.9 ez
Mine does 3000 but wont even go 1mhz higher. It wont even boot into windows if I go any higher
From a 1090t the only CPU I would think about getting is a 2500k/2600k or i7 8xx/xeon equivalent.
Now if only we knew the details of piledriver.....
I really didn't want to change out my whole system, which is why I was thinking BD. And the 6100 is fairly cheap, same as a 1090T. However, if I'm gonna go BD I'm thinking maybe I should get an 8120.
I'm gonna build an intel system eventually, In probably a year or so.
If u play games keep ur 6x u wont see any real gains for gamming on a bd.
If you want something different, pickup one of those unlocked apu's.
Are they as good as they're supposed to be?
I know the locked ones scale well with an overclock but are board limited. Best people to ask would be lilhasselhoffer or cadaveca
To answer your question about NB freq., it's on a case by case, my 720 black does better with ddr2 but on the other hand the 555 handles ddr3 better. Could also be the fact that the 555 unlocks and the 720 doesnt also. So again case in point, it's down to the chip just like back in the day with s775 where you had some golden overclocking chips and some sucky ones.
ITS A HUGE STEP DOWN.. OC'd to 4.3GHz its maybe like a 1100T @ Stock Clock. POWER CONSUMPTION is High @ that voltage. Wait for PILEDRIVER.
What was your previous CPU?
Finally this is what I'm settling for.
HT link to high?
Can you raise your Northbridge a little more?
I get 12,400 on my copy at 1333. I think you could get a lot more.
Im definetly missing something. Is a 1055T a locked multi?
There are Black Editions, but most of them are not.
Edit: Isn't the multi cap set at 14 though? You still have some multi room, you can get to 3.8. You've got plenty of room with your voltage.
And Now My Settings For the Winter:
Actually, I have tried lowering it to the 2k Mhz range and performance actually suffers.
I've tried but it seems she doesn't like it when I pass 280 on the FSB...even if I lower my oc on Ram to 1600Mhz, I also have to pump the CPU-NB voltage into RED to makes it run past 3000Mhz
It is unlocked but not a BE
Yes but when I push it that high, I get many errors....maybe I should settle for for a 1600Mhz on my ram?
How do you get a unlocked chip thats not a black edition?
If your 1866 is stable I would leave it.
If you have an unlocked multi, why not use it? I prefer it to raising the fsb. The way I have mine, is 200, (fsb) with multi at X21.
You're still at stock CPU voltage, right? I think the errors you have when you push higher are voltage related.
Also, try running maxxmem. To make me happy, if nothing ese.
Chaotic, all Phenom II cpu's are multi unlocked. Black edition are upwards unlocked though. Also you're ok to push up to 1.55v, don't be afraid to push 1.36-1.4v on both core and cpu-nb if on decent air cooling or better.
Well if you wanna go that far all cpu's are multi unlocked then lol
Crucial Ballistix Elite.....compatible with AMD anyone?
It's ddr3 right? ....
Sorry I had to
Yes Jr, it's DDR 3
my mobo failed on me. cant get a 10% OC stable
and its been 6 months since last RMA.
time for RMA again.
