Hello. I'm glad to finally be back to the Tech Forums. I absolutely adore the changes made to the site. It seems more intuitive and user friendly, while still retaining the feel of being a stockpile of I.T. information that I remember.
I am attempting to overclock my Phenom II x6 1055t with an Asus M4a785-m.
This motherboard uses 4+1 phase design, which could potentially be limiting my overclock, but I am not sure I've even come close yet.
My problem is that I haven't been keeping up as well as I would have liked, and I'm not sure what some of these voltages should be.
This motherboard gives me the ability to change lots of voltages, and I'm not sure what my max or min should be, so I haven't changed them yet. I'm thinking one of these "auto" voltages you see in the screenshot is what's holding me back.
If you look at the BIOS screenshot you'll notice VDDNB over voltage, LoadLine Calibration, and HT over voltage. Also my Chipset voltage is set to auto. These are surely what is limiting me to 3.7~ GHZ. Heat is not an issue. The highest temp reported running LinX was around 43c and that was the northbridge.
Please help me by explaining a bit about these voltages that are new to me, and if you know what my max should be when trying to push this a bit higher please let me know.
I am hoping to get around 3.8+ghz.
Edit: The power supply is a Corsair tx850w, so power shouldn't be a problem.
