New at overclocking AM2 X2 4000+

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me where to start? Processor is an AM2 X2 4000+. I think my mobo is good enough, and have 4 80mm fans that blow 84cfms @ 5700rpms (Vantec Tornados) to take care of my over heating problems. Current CPU temp is at a steady 33*-38*C. Rest of specs are below. TIA

Start raising your fsb in increments of 2/3 and booting each time

Forgive my ignorance which one raises the fsb. I believe it maxes out at 10xhtt and 5xht.

Just read this about your board so it shouldnt be hard to find the FSB!
Quote:
The Foxconn C51XEM2AA motherboard is considerably less refined than most of its competition. The chipset fan is noisy, the memory slots are a little too close to the CPU socket and the other amenities are often blocked by a fully loaded set of expansion cards. The BIOS, however, is an overclocker's wet dream, offering every conceivable tweaking option.

I managed to get it 230X10 on 1.375V @ HT5X. Memory timings are 4.4.4.12 2 @ 2.1V running @920MHz. Temps are 35*C system, 36*C CPU, and 39*C MOBO. Anything over that will cause a reboot.


Question for the following. Can anyone explain what these are for?
HT MULTIPLIER
CPU<-->nForce SPP set on AUTO 5X
nForce-->nForce MCP @5X
nForce<--nForce MCP @5X

CPU SPREAD SPECTRUM DISABLED

TIA, Ray

They're the chipset HT links. You want them to total to around 1000. Try lowering them to 4x230 or even 3x230(assuming you're planning to go higher). Also maybe lower the memory speed?
