Need A lil help keeping my system stable

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sup great forum here, I just wanted a little help getting the most out of my processor, and VGA card while keeping things stable. I am still pretty new at OC-ing, but so far I am running at something like 1.8Ghz and from what I have researched so far I know my CPU can take a little more push. So if anyone can assist me I'd be greatful. Thanks a ton, until then I'll keep surfing around this forum. Hopfully the specs I provided are enough for anyone to help me out here.

Welcome to best PC forum in the world
do you have overclocking options in your BIOS and i would just reccomend recplacing your motherboard/cpu and just going socket 939 as they have alot of upgrade possibilitys (Even tho no future cpu's coming out they go up past Athlon 64 4000+ and dual core) and getting you a 3700+ SD, OC that RAM or get atleast some pc3200, and you will be set my friend

Read this post, Ultimate Overclocking Guide, and play around a little. Until you get somewhat familiar with overclocking, and have more specific questions, it is difficult to guide you in your endeavors. Welcome to the forum.

Yeah I have OC options in the bios. I can change pretty much everything IE. memory timmings, voltages, mem ratios, agp timmings, fsb, and multipliers, my multi goes up to 13 which is as high as the options will allow me to go. Hope that helps.

Definitely - you'll basically want to raise the FSB to get higher CPU and RAM frequencies...it's a tad (seriously, just a TAD) more complicated and I'm not nearly as eloquent as DeathoNator, so definitely check it out.

BTW, since I joined almost 2 years ago (and didn't know jack), I've been to that thread many, many times...be sure to understand how to find maximum frequencies of your RAM, CPU, FSB/Mobo etc - you'll be running in circles or have little idea what is stable if you don't find those correctly.
