My System Specs


This was my 1055 OC thread. Final settings were:

FSB 270
multiplier x14 (stock/locked)
vcore 1.42
total OC 3.8
temps 54C under load.

I kept it conservative since I fold, and my CPU is pegged 100% of the time. You could probably hit 4.0Ghz if you are a little more conservative. Also, I'm using an AIO water cooler (equivalent to an H80), so you may need to upgrade your cooler if you're having temp problems.

EDIT: I just saw that you're at STOCK settings. Whoah, crazy. I wonder why your board is pegging the voltage so much? Maybe you should turn off all the auto settings (coolnquiet, turboboost, etc) and try to set an overclock at the (conservative) settings I'm running...
