Hi guys about a amd 720be overclock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys im maarten i just introduced myself in the introduction thread.

I signed up on this forum because there is alot of interesting threads but the maincase is that i want to over clock my 720 for 24/7 computing.

I already read a the links and threads on google and im not feeling very safe to start on it yet.

So i thought i ask some more information in a thread. If i missed a crusial thread im sorry for making a new one.

What i already said i want to do a nice overclock but for a 24/7 computer.

I dont need to have the max from my cpu but just a little more speed is always nice.

My motherboard is a asus m4a785td-v evo and i have kingston memory.
I have 5 120mm case fans and a zalman cooler.
Can somebody give me some advise on how to get start what settings maybe and where to watch for.
Is 3.5mhz a good expectation for a my case?

Pls any information is welcome im a little confused after al that googling where to start .

Sorry for my bad english im from the netherlands.

Well there are two ways you could go about it either finding your max FSB at stock speeds and voltage and work your way up from there with the multiplier ( which i don't prefer -personally- because you either need to have a really good ram that can take extra MHz or sacrifice some ram speed for more FSB ).

Or go for a straight OC with just the multiplier and voltage you could work your way ( up ) by starting at low freq and increasing it -with the multiplier- till you reach the desired OC

Or work you way ( down ) by starting @ the desired freq and upping the voltage a notch each time till you get it stable ( my fav )

Basically either way you test the CPU stability with Prime95 and/or OCCT if its not stable up the voltage 1 more notch ( +0.025v ) till you get it stable, personally i wouldn't go above 1.5vCore to reach my desired OC
Note that most X3 720 hit a wall @ 3.7GHz

Programs needed: Prime95, OCCT for stress tests CoreTemp, HWMonitor, Cpuz for temp and voltage monitoring

As for my X3 I've only managed to get it to 3.5GHz ( stable ) with a straight OC @ 1.45vCore and NB @ 2.4GHz, but not all chips are the same

Also take a look at the following threads/guides it might help:
