amd athlon 64 x2 6000+ ASUS m3a78-em

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
im a newb to this just started last night...lol... im trying to overclock my amd athlon x2 6000+ with a asus m3a78-em motherboard been doin allot of dinkin arround and not havin to mutch for luck....

My question: so far im at 210 with clock speed 15x multiplier +50mv im running prime 95 right now to confirm stability but doing the math i should be at 3150 for speed asus cool and quite tells me 3255 and so does windows why?

im trying to make it to 3400 at least 3300 would be ok but having stability problems so i rethought my stratagie started with lowest multiplier i could at 7.5x and 400 cpu clock and slowly went up from there to get a stable 3000 made it to 15x 200 and was stable everything lower on the multiplier was unstable anyone with sugestions tips or anyone that has EXP with my motherboard that could lend a sugestion would be great like i said im new to this but im having a blast....thumb.gif

Fill in your full rig specs under user control panel so we can see what you've got.

Watch your temps.

That series of AMD were not good overclockers in general.

i had updated my RIG... i didn't have no luck earlier i spent a few hours playin the best i got was 210 for clock x15 for multiplier +50mv on CPU volts anything higher even with increasing cpu volts and cpu nb volts was a failure so says prime 95 so i gave up and went back to all auto in bios seems the highest i wana go is +100mv on CPU wich took me to 1.4v when i went to +150 i was getting 70 deg C for core temps didnt seem like increasing Processor NB Volts did much of anything but im new what do i know...

The HT bus will fail at or over about 210. You need to bump the multiplier down to 4x.
