I'm using the stock cooler and this processor is really good for the price it comes at. If you ever need any help overclocking your processor you can be free to ask me and yeah i could fill you in on all details such as vcore,ht link and cpu nb frequency. My vcore is at 1.424 and the clock frequency is at 3.75ghz and its absolutely stable. This processor does good at an overclocked speed and overclocking it is quite easy
Ye , I know this is thread is really old , But i would appreciate if you told me exactly your details , As i am sorta stuck again.

Okay so after tweaking a bit i managed to get the PC to boot normally and not get the 3 beeps problem , What i did was lowering the HT Link Freq , However as soon as windows boot the PC automatically restarts .. So something must be wrong, I am gonna explain exactly my settings but here is the link for the bios again in case some of the stuff i am going to say makes no sense : http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...082011001.jpg/

K, I set the :

CPU Frequency to 220 .. As 220 X 15 = 3.3Ghz

HT Link Frequency to 1.8Ghz .. While there are options that go from 200 Mhz to 2.0 Ghz , I really did not know what to set this to so i just tried 1.8Ghz , Which managed to get me past the 3 beeps problem that i used to get when leaving this to AUTO. But what should this be set to?

Memory Clock to x3.33 .. as 4.00 x 220 = 880 Mhz which was over the default 800 Mhz.

CPU Northbridge Freq. to x9 .. I Dont exactly know what this should be set it , Is the default NB freq = CPU FREQ x 10 or is it what PunkX explained as = 3 times the non multiplied ram clock ? the default Ram Clock for me is 800 Mhz , So what should this exactly be set to? Elaborate Please.

( And i have left the voltage to AUTO. )


So exactly what should i change to stop the PC from restarting itself and can someone elaborate a bit to me the HT link Freq and what it is supposed to be set to? Or maybe i need to change the voltage ? or the NB multiplier is the problem? or maybe some of the stuff that i did not touch should be changed? Help Please

-Thanks.

While still waiting for a reply for my previous post , I am just notifying you guys that i tried EasyTune6 and while it got the job done .. The PC just BSODs after 10 mins.

Don't use Easytune, use the BIOS.

I own that same motherboard. It is not the best for overclocking, but it will overclock some.

Print out the pdf in my signature. Reference it as you tune your BIOS. Benchmark to see if there is a performance gain. Stress test to check stability. Monitor temperatures during stress test.

Each of the Bolds can be done in AMD Overdrive, or there are better individual programs for each step.

Fill out the rest of your system specs so I can see your memory and PSU, ect.
