post #291 of 356
Yep weirdo mobo, I'll try an push it though will try an get 3.8 - 4.0ghz with as minimum voltage as possible and post up the cpu-z pics but i'll do this after christmas busy around here smile.gif, will check out the ram @ 1700mhz also after christmas . "Merry Christmas" everyone! thumb.gif

can i go higher?

post #294 of 356
current settings and output
bus speed=240
core voltage =1.380v
core speed = 3.720 Mhz
multiplier =15.5
ht link=1200 mhz (exceeded from my mobos max settings in bios which is only 1000)
dram frequency= 640mhz
ram timings = 9,9,9,25,34
nb frequency = 2400mhz (exceeded from my mobos max setting s in bios w/c only gives 2000 max)
max core temp in full load using linx = 38C
max temp og mobo = 46C
i used CPUZ hardware monitor
my cpou cooler is deepcool gammaxx 300 with 3 U heatpipes (a very cheap after market cooler)
Athlon II x2 255 stock speed is 3.10 Ghz
and this is funny i used two different ram (kingston low profile 4gbx1 1333Mhz and gskill ripjaw 2gbx1 1600mhz both cl9) i just set the timings on the kingston ram tables i saw in cpuz and choose the higher timings and apply on both ram) they running 6gb dual channel unganged
run and finish linx at 2048 mb 10 runs without error
what bothers me now is the ht link and nb frequency which exceeded on my bios max settings
will this cause future problem?
by the way my mobo is really not good biostar n68s3b biggrin.gif
sorry im not good in english
any comment and seuggetion will be highlly appreciated

I have begun try overclock sempron 145 to limits on latest am3+ board.

Machine is used single core for special program, faster = better performance, is legacy program cannot rewrite.

So I can do up to 3000 NB ! I have currently 2800 mhz as speed at 1.25 volt

Will nb temp be issue if I stay 2800 or 3000?

I have cpu 4.2 but I think can go much higher, cpu very cheap if cpu voltage is high, when cpu degrades what are sign?
I can get surplus >$20 sempron, I think easy to overclock high and just replace once year.

Sempron 145 fastest single core still, I think?

Technically Sempron 150 is faster, but the difference is minimal. Also, if you were to OC a 150, which has a multi of 14.5 (compared to 14.0 of 145), you'll most probably have to drop that multi to 14.0 anyway...

4.2Ghz is very good for that CPU. And at 2800NB too! What cooling do you use? How hot does it get under load?

I was able to get to 303 bus but then system becomes unstable, even if I go to 1.5V. No change.

I can get 3000 NB stable if I stay at 300 bus.

Right now for some hours prime95 is running ok.

4200mhz/3000mhzNB

On load cpu temp is 37C and this is using scythe kama angle and mx-4

My concern is NB cooling if I keep at 3000 NB.

Memory I will try and increase soon, is right now not high speed.

I am a bit disappointed I cannot go past 303 even at 1.5v, I don't want to go higher.

Don't be disappointed, this is a great overclock.

Also, NB is integrated in your CPU - you cool both with the CPU cooler.

And if you're worried about the actual north bridge on the mobo (what mobo do you use?), just buy a small fan and attach it to the heatsink smile.gif

Ah ok!

I know they never will but I would love to see smaller die single core... just to see limits

This is the single thread performance that I was able to achieve at 4.1Ghz with my Athlon II x2 250. Would appreciate if you could also post a benchmark and keep this Athlon II thread alive smile.gif
