Help! AMD Athlon x2 64 4600+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,all.I start to overclock my cpu,but i get stucked here: 480
My motherboard is 480
My settings are:
-CPU Frequency 243
-VCore:+0.200 (1,5V)
-HT Link x4
-Ram speed lowered to 667 MHz (A-Data 2G 800 MHz)
-PCIe: locked at 100MHz
All spread specctrums:Disabled

So here is my problem.When i try to increase CPU Frequency to 245 and when pc restarts it says:Now System is in Safe Mode.Please re-settings CPU Frequency in the CMOS setup. I am cooling my processor with Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and temps with prime95 are 38-41

You seem to be doing everything right.
It might that the motherboard is "weakest link" in your system. Try lowering the CPU, HT and memory multipliers a bit and test how far you can push HT reference clock alone (what you labeled "CPU Frequency" above). If your system has trouble booting with HT reference frequencies above 243MHz regardless your other settings you know what the limitations are and can try to work around them by increasing chipset voltage a bit or overclocking in Windows by using software (e.g. the old "ClockGen" tool).

I was looking for option to increase chipset voltage in bios but i didn't find it. It's North Bridge(NB),right?So you suggest me to lower CPU Frequency from 243 to..how much.Memory from 667 to lower and HT from x4 to x3?Right?

Yes, it is the NB.

No, I was suggesting that you temporarily lower the multipliers for CPU, memory and HT so that you can test if it the motherboard that is preventing you from overclocking further by increasing the HT refrence frequency ("CPU frequency" as you call it).

I don't have option in bios to lower multipliers.It's x12 and i don't see anywhere option for changing it.For the memory i can lower it from 667 to 533 or something like that and HT to x3.As far as i understand i have to lower the memory, HT and in the meantime increasing CPU Frequency.Excuse me if i get it wrong again:( I was going to lower CPU multipliers if i had this option in BIOS in the beginning.
