Please help with my AMD Sempron 3k+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I got a AMD Sempron 3000+ working on 1.81Ghz right now.
I really need to overclock it to get some better performance cuz I am fed up with it and I cant buy a new pc right now...
I know u guys are awsome and helpful And if its possible to send a link to a step by step guide for total newbies about overclocking and tell me if there are some preparations I need to do.
Here is the info from CPU-Z :

1) increase Reference clock by 5MHz
2) test stability by prime95, OCCT, Intel burn test, etc...
3) repeat until it fails stability test.
4) increase core voltage by one increment
5) repeat stability test
6) repeat steps 4-5 until it passes stability test
7) repeat steps 1-6 until you reach desired speed or until you have reached max safe Vcore voltage.
8) run stability tests for longer period of time to fine tune your OC
9) adjust Ref. clock frequencies in single increments when fine tuning

Make sure your temps stay within safe operating limits.

Thank you DSP1...But there is a problem..
1st I dont fully understand how to increase the Reference clock and core voltage
2nd How do I know that I am within the safe limits?
3rd What would u recommend would be the best clock for this processor without buying a new cooler?...

i think you'd benefit more from a RAM upgrade than trying to overclock.

I will buy extra 512 ram and overclock the processor but I dont really understand how I should overclock it and how do I stay within the same limits...
