AthlonXP 2600+ Overclocking - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Too much ram voltage can actually make it less stable. You'll just have to experiment.
Isn't 50 deg. kind of high for an XP, especially for an extreme OC?

I can't believe the NF7 doesn't have mutiplier adjustments. I thought it was supposed to be an overclocking board. I mean, its an Abit, for crying out loud!

The NF7-s v2 is the overclocking board with multy and vdd adjustment but the NF7-S2(g) is not the same. It came after but wasnt as good and was meant for more mainstream use rather than ocing.....says so on abit site.
Easy to get the 2 muddled up....just dont get confused and flash the wrong bios tho!!


50c is about the highest you want to go if possible. I have had problems in the past with stability above that. With previous board and chip it used to bsod at about 49c! If its stable at high temps then dont worry.....but in this case it isnt. Might be a factor in the problem but i would guess that its more likely the chip is just maxed out. Only way to be sure would be to get a better hsf. Or get a desktop fan and run tests with side off and fan blowing to see if it can knock a few c off. If that sorts it then it is a temp issue

Not all can overclock well. If it was a mobile and you were stuggling to hit 200 then that would be a different story cos they all seem to do 200++ easily and at low vcore. (Dont get one with the s2 board thought as no multy adj.)
