Waiting til I get a better cooler first. (Maybe watercooling? But idk yet.) Iv researched how to do it and such.

Had a quick go at overclocking yesterday but my coolers a bit rubbish so I just dropped it down to 3.0GHz until I get a better cooler. I didn't spend much time on it and din't want to go to high as as I said my cooler doesn't cut it.

The easiest way to overclock it was to set my RAM to a lower preset (1333 rather than 1600) then add a little voltage and increase the base clock. Remember to use your drives in IDE mode as otherwise the overclocked bus in AHCI mode can cause windows to fail at booting. The biggest pain was stopping my RAM from getting to too high speeds, it seems to manage fine up until just after 1700MHz any more and it just fails to boot. your best option is to increase the base by 5MHz at a time and check stability, ( then increase voltages loosen timing etc if necessary). I had mine at 3.2GHz at what I believe was stable but the only test i really did was half an hour of minecraft tongue.gif . The chip could be pushed much further but im held back by the fact my cpu cooler isn't very good and im a total noob at overclocking.

Most important things are:
IDE mode
Keep your RAM in check

At the moment im keeping it at 3.05GHz because I refuse to be beat by a stock 3870k. biggrin.gif

Is the Llano Athlon II X4 631 a decent CPU for a budget build, and is the stock cooler enough considering the guy won't overclock and its stock clock is 2.6GHz, it's also a 32nm chip. Also, isn't the CPU performance (I know it's not an APU, just a Llano FM1 CPU) pretty much the same as AM3 CPU performance?

in terms of cpu performance its a phenom without l3 cache. So it we be faster than an equally clocked am3 athlon. The stock cooler is just a finned aluminium block with a fan on top :L but it will cool it ok.

OK, since he won't be overclocking I'll probably get him a cheap cooler which is just more silent than the stock cooler. Like the one in my sig. (Which actually cools this Phenom to ~3.8 just fine)

I know you got a laptop version, but I do have the desktop version of A4-3300 was planning to push it to 3.5ghz mine is sitting stable at 3.0ghz right now with a 7 hour long Prime95 test. I wonder if there is a major difference in settings, because I wanna try your k10stat settings. The only difference I could see is why does yours have a Boost preset mine doesn't have a B0 preset.

Also how's the stability on that? What tests have you done on it and what's the average temp at load? I see it as 84C based on that link...

@ Razaille:

B0: I switched it off, because in turbo mode all cores receive increased voltage, but only one is clocked up. 3.5 GHz 1.375V is stable with cpu stress only. When the full system is stressed, 1.41V isn't enough ( the voltage isn't stable, overloaded supply), and the sys fan can't handle the situation ( max. 93°C reached). A desktop with better cooler and more robust power supply should work at 3.5 GHz.
It seems, that +50mV/100MHz is necessary above 2.85GHz, so probably 4.0GHz @ 1.65V may be reached at a desktop. Now I try to get an external cooler.

About stability: my settings were tested with cpu load only for 1 hour. According to my tests (prime95, aida64, performance test v7) at 2867 MHz I have to add ~50 mV to get stable system at full load (cpu+gpu+ram+hdd stressed). Yesterday I had one adobe plugin crash with the original voltages.
Don't worry about temperature, you have a desktop cooler. Extended industry range is from -40°C to +105°C. Most cars are running with an engine control unit at 85..90°C. Anything below 90°C is fine. link
edit2: they achieved 3712.5 MHz stable at 1.5V on A8-3850. I would need something around 1.42V for 3500 MHz stable, and +50 mV per each 100MHz. Almost the same voltage levels at same speed. link2

i just built a nice budget build based on a Gigabyte A75/ A4-3400 setup....it seems the clock multiplier is UNLOCKED! FSB is @100mghz (manual) CLK Multiplier x30(manual (x27 norm.) memory OC 1600 (auto), voltage timings auto. i haven't pushed it beyond this to see how high it'll go but windows7 (64bit) reports it running at 3.0ghz, also EasyTune 6(still reporting 3.0GHz) with FSB reading of just over 100.5 mghz (i will assume this is due to memory OC to 1600 DDR3). i've also xfired with a HD6450 and this thing is a sub $500 beast.

Specc's:
AMD A4-3400 Boxed (STOCK FAN)
Gigabyte A75-D2H mATX (BIOS REV. 05)
8GB Kingston HyperX 1600 DDR3
RADEON HD6450 512Mb (in CrossfireX (6510d) (AGPU OC'd 625MgHz(Manual BIOS)
WD 750Gb Black Caviar HDD
450W Enermax Tomohawk II PSU

PS i will try and get screenies to backup my findings and obviously need to run some stress tests for stability. like to see more posts of peeps getting OC results by CLK Multiplier only good luck!

That doesnt have an unlocked multiplier although you may have the option to change it it has no real world effect. A way to prove this is to run a benchmark pre-OC and post-OC and compare.
