New OC'er needs some advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok hi all im new here and would like a little input on my first attempt at OCing my CPU. I have been looking at the site for a couple of weeks looking up what info i can on overclocking. below is the CPU-z info.

i have read that my mobo is not the best fo overclocking so i knocked down my stock voltage by 1. I have done a few short tests with prime95 and every things been ok so far and max CPU temp has been about 48-49 deg. one thing im not sure about is my memory have altered the multis for these to try and keep them near stock to start with like most of the guides suggest the same with the NB.

Considering that i dont have the best mobo would you guys reccommend me not pushing mmore on the Oc as i seem te be at what i was kind of expecting.

Many thanks
Smutt

I wouldn't push more. But at that freq you should be able to lower the voltage Mine is C3, yours is C2, but maybe it won't be that much of a difference.
My voltage reached as low as 1.18v idle, 1.20v load @3.2Ghz. At 3.1 should go even lower. Try it and see your temperatures drop

hi thanks for the suggestion and it was your athlon guide that i used the most as it was one of the easier ones for me to understand.

Well i have tried lowering the voltage more but i dont think it can go as low as yours. Below is my CPU-z and i think thats the lowest it will go i did a prime 95 for about as long as i did for the others any lower and prime 95 instantly blackscreens my comp. I still need to do a longer test which i will do later but i reallly have to sleep now. Any other tips you have would be much appreciated.
