An AMD 4GHz club wanna be

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Dear overclockers,
I would like to try to do this with my AMD athlon II x3 440 processor. I know people have achieved this with their 445 series but I haven't seen a 440 yet.

Okay to the point, I have been stuck on 3.75GHz for a long time and don't know what to do next. I'm certainly a noob at overclocking and much guidance is needed. I would like to see how far I could go with just the current set up then I'll see if I can upgrade the current hardware (different cooler or ram) to achieve that or just part with them for an Intel.

Here is what I have so far:
CPU voltage 1.4375V [updated voltage]
Multiplier x15
Frequency 250


NB x8 2000MHz 1.2V--I don't know what to do with NB voltage

HT--I don't know what to do with this either so it's on Auto

Ram--667 MHz ddr3 1333--voltage is on auto too

Temperature hoovers around 33C right now at idle and around 40C with the constant change of voltage and frequency.

The motherboard also has a "Chipset setting" section where you can change the voltage of SB, HT, CPU VDDA. Does this do anything?
Also, I can unlock a 4th core but not L3 cache. Do I even need that?

Thank you for your help and supports in advance!

Giving were you are now you have no real chance unless you get some water cooling or LN2 or something. Your still 400mhz to go and your voltages are already pushing the max. Plus the cooler is not top of the line either. Your board isnt bad, but its not good enough to support volts aver 1.5 on the cpu safely either. Maybe 1.55v max but thats really pushing.

Is this set up better than mine?

Or the 450 is just plainly better at OC than 440?
He does have one more multiplier with that one more I would be able to pull 4.0Ghz ;(

Oh my voltage is high because well...I think that the more juice the better?

Also, I do have a 4th core running so I needed to be high. However, I want to reach 4GHz so 4 cores will probably be out of the question. Let me find the lowest voltage then I'll report back ASAP. [updated above]

The HT should be at or below 2000 MHz and I recommend keeping load temps below 55 degrees the AMD chips tend to get unstable at that point.

Okay thanks! I will keep that in mind when I try to change the settings.
