Gradual Overclocking Program

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My Athlon x4 620 can take a 245hz overclock, however if you apply this overclock all at once the system hangs. If you increace in increments of 10hz it is fine. Is this normal and is there an overclocking program with profiles that gradualy increses the clock rather than applying it all at once?

I am quite a novice so i might be speaking nonsence. Apologies if I am

You can't really dynamically control the bus speed, but you can cheat. First of all you must find the stable OC with Cool'nQuiet/C1E and all power saving enabled. Then you can use a soft called K10Stat in Windows to dynamically adjust the processor multiplier from as low as 5x up to the nominal multi (14x?) - you can also specify the voltage per multiplier. There are 4 multipliers available - minimum, maximum and 2 intermediate values of your choosing. At minimum 5x you'd have the CPU @245x5=~1.25GHz while at full it's 14x245=3.4GHz. Two intermediate values could be for example 8x and 11x, your job to find out what is the needed voltage per speed grade.

It's a lot of info here maybe too much, the takeaway is get K10Stat and use the multiplier in stead of the bus speed to change clock speed. Take care though with K10Stat - it has many options and if dialing in huge values like 1.8Vcore you can toast the processor.

Thanks, that pretty much worked. To get it straight, it automaticly over or underclocks the cup, using FID, when the load reaches a cirtain amount?

Exactly, cool piece of software, right?

If you're up for some tinkering play with the ramp law - ganged, unganged, based on average/max/min load per core (right click on the taskbar icon). Also you can set after how much time at at which load the CPU ramps up/down which can tune your CPU into something speed or power saving oriented.

Anyway, glad it worked
