What's the highest overclock for a Phenom II x6 1090t on air? I say because I can run benches at 4.3Ghz and it boots at 4.4Ghz but it crashes.
any chance of some screenies fella, so we can see what volts your using for mobo etc ive mine 24/7 folding at 4 but itll do 4.2 stable but at 1.52V on cpu and a high cpunb of 1.5 ,all watercooled so temps are fine , though ive lowerred cpunb to 1.43 at min and im testing stability after the last few posts:eek:

i had tested it mostly with nb at 3.2 and cpu at 4.2 and it was unstable untill i put 1.5 on cpunb before ,but ive lowered it due to folding and my fear of killing it , that and the 850TX psu im using starts whining if i push much more ,its doing its bit though 2 pumps 14 fans and the rig listed has to be on the edge of 850 watts, the last psu calc tool i tried said 1150watts req'd:twitch: its on my upgrade list obv(modular too:D)

i was also getting the odd kernal power error popping up in events log before so im sure the psu was being spanked a bit too much ,now there gone

that will probably be the max, idk if anything warmer than subzero or close to subzero temps would air would benefit you very much with these high clocks;)

why not search for it on your favorite Web Search Engine. Sounds to me you need more Vcore

What's the highest overclock for a Phenom II x6 1090t on air? I say because I can run benches at 4.3Ghz and it boots at 4.4Ghz but it crashes.
Thats a pretty good clock. It seems like I saw someone on here a few months back with one at 4.5 with 1.48 volts or something, made me jealous. I can only boot at 4.3, not stable at all. I can run at 4.2 though, stable with 1.52v. I keep it at 4.0 though, and enjoy the volts at 1.40v.

Whats your CPU voltage? if its like 1.48 or something, its not gonna hurt it to bring it up a bit to keep it stable.

I think your thinking of my post of the 1090T I used to run...:D 1.48v @ 4.5GHz but that was just for boot and nothing else...Anyways, Usually Id run 1.525v on the core with LLC at 75%

What are the max Volts your recommend for daily use, for CPU and CPU-NB?
Have you found any use in tweaking the PLL, NB, NB 1.8v,SB and HT volts?
So far it doesnt seem like there is much happening, stabilitywise, when i use them;)

1.44 on the CPU, 4.2ghz
and 1.3125 on the NB, 3130mhz
1.44v on the high side but it's Great!
1.3125 is a tad on the high side!

I was running 1.10v NB@ 3000k

yeah, running NB@ 3000 1.2v shouldnt be a problem for me too,idk if lower would work, havent tweaked too much in that direction yet :eek:

so you say, im at the end of my personal flagpole now,eh? :cry:

what are the minimum volts at that a thuban died? :D

on an antec 920, with 1100t, my overclock at the moment is 4Ghz, 1830ddr3 9'10'9'27 nb3200, ht 2058. (prime95 was running at the time)
the load line calibration increases the voltage to 1.44... and it is stable for 6 hours...(in the process of checking for 24 hours)
BTW in case you are wondering; load line seems to increase the voltages by 7/160 of a volt (0.04375)
corsair ram CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9R (2X4G)
the multistream bench was a best case bench, (from running it after, prime95 ran for 6 hours, then stopped), the other was a repeatable result, after reboot.

My board has no Load Line Calibration, but it has the highest vdroop ever.
any chance of some screenies fella, so we can see what volts your using for mobo etc ive mine 24/7 folding at 4 but itll do 4.2 stable but at 1.52V on cpu and a high cpunb of 1.5 ,all watercooled so temps are fine , though ive lowerred cpunb to 1.43 at min and im testing stability after the last few posts:eek:
For 4.3Ghz 1.57v and for 4.4Ghz I tried 1.62v
i had tested it mostly with nb at 3.2 and cpu at 4.2 and it was unstable untill i put 1.5 on cpunb before ,but ive lowered it due to folding and my fear of killing it , that and the 850TX psu im using starts whining if i push much more ,its doing its bit though 2 pumps 14 fans and the rig listed has to be on the edge of 850 watts, the last psu calc tool i tried said 1150watts req'd:twitch: its on my upgrade list obv(modular too:D)

i was also getting the odd kernal power error popping up in events log before so im sure the psu was being spanked a bit too much ,now there gone
I always leave the cpu/nb around 2600, because the extra voltage adds more heat to the cpu and the gains are minimal past 2600 (that's what I read on this forum)
why not search for it on your favorite Web Search Engine. Sounds to me you need more Vcore
Why we have these fora then? Also you don't know my vcore, how you recommend more.

Whats your CPU voltage? if its like 1.48 or something, its not gonna hurt it to bring it up a bit to keep it stable.
In the end most of us do that, when you go past 4.1Ghz it needs more vcore and it gets hotter; that's why I now leave it at 4.0Ghz with 1.40v.

Yep, this Tuniq Tower wiped the floor with my brothers water cooling with the same chip, so he replaced his water cooling with a Tuniq Tower 120 extreme too, best cooler I have used and was only something like £35

Amazing temps, only problem is it sits very low to the RAM, just fits with a bit of fan adjusting but it touches the top of the RAM

My cooler is about 1/4 inch over the RAM, maybe a little less. There's a few other guys with 965s on here, a month or two ago they were all trying to get over 4 ghz.

Yea I couldn't stabilize mine anything over 3.8GHz until I stuck it into the Crosshair V Formula, now its OCing like its a different chip

With my micro atx ASUS board, I had to have 1.52v for 4.0ghz, but with my Fatal1ty I only need 1.40

I think it all depends on how well the board can stabilize the juice to the CPU, vdroop etc

Cheaper / Older boards with not so good components etc probably need more voltage for when the chip pulls load, but when its idle thats too much voltage, hence why its harder to keep the OC stable, thats my guess

With more expensive higher quality boards, they can keep the power steady for the chip in both power states idle and load

My guess

Ok guys, I got my 1055T crunching 24/7 but want to start OCing. I have oced many black edition denab quads but this thuban is newer and I will need some advice on were to start. I have a rocketfish 90MM cooler that seems to be doing ok but I will not be going to insane clocks. I say around 3.5Ghz or so to start and I will see what temps I will have.
