Help Overclocking my amd 64 x2 5000+ 2.6ghz

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am searching around for any suggestions on reccomended settings for a good solid/stable overclock for this processor http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2-AM2-5000%20E.

I am familiar with how to overclock and if I was told the reccommended settings I would be able to trouble shoot as I go. As of right now i'm having a hard time finding a combo that keeps my cpu @ proper temps and I have plenty of cooling going on inside the box and there is not much online that refrences my MOBO and cpu combo.

My Mobo: http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...113-M2-E113-TR
My Ram: http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-ddr...l-channel.html

The problem I am having to go a little further in depth is I am not quite sure what a suitable temperature for my processor is AFTER an overclock. Me and a friend sat down and overclocked it just a bit over 2.9ghz and after a few minutes of Orthos running we noticed the temps were getting pretty high (over 70 ) I do not imagine this is right.

I reset the defaults and continued on with my gaming, I left my temp monitor open to get an idea of what temps I was running during my normal useage on the pc w/o an overclock and they stayed consistantly 59-61. Which to me sounds kind of high but i'm not sure, and is why I am asking you guys.

My system is a bit out of date I know this but would like to try and give it just a bit of extra juice to make it through until I can finish buying my new one.

Stock settings:
Core Speed : 2600.3 Mhz
Multiplier x13.0
Bus speed 200.0 Mhz
HT Link: 1000.1 Mhz
Core Voltage 0.984-0.992

a bit over 2.9 is my goal but I would be fine with a solid/stable 2.8. and of course 3.0 is where I wanna be but i'm not quite sure I have the cooling for it. Any responses/help would be great thanks!

if you go to your user cp and fill out your system details, we will be able to see exactly what hardware you are working with and people can let you know previous experiences with them (particularly mobo's).

are you using the stock cooling? you can get a decent cooler for pretty cheap, and thats the easiest way to raise your overclocking ceiling. if you dont want to put anymore money into an old rig, you might be able to remove your heatsink, clean it, and put some new TIM on there (sounds like you're running a little hot anyway).

i know the new chips aII's, phII's have a max temp of 60*c. so you probably are already close to your limit without additional cooling.
