Help me over clock my 3500/DFI

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i hope this is the place to post this.

im running a 3500 and a DFI mobo. i bought all my PC stuff about 2 years agio when the 3500 came out. i bought all the stuff to voer clock but this bios is much differents then the old AMD 2600 and stuff. hell all you had to do before is over clock the FSB. im running the new CPU-Z V1.36 so yea im new at it. im lost guys help me!

CPU: AMD 3500 Claw Hammer, SH7-CG, 0.13um (liquid cooled)

Mother Board: DFI Lan PartyUT nF4 Ultra-D

Memory: Corsair XMS Dual Channel 1GIG(2-512) CAS# Lat 3.0 clocks

Video card: XFX 6600 256 (liquid cooled)

Hard drive: sata 10,000 RPM 36 gigger

Liquid cooled system (video card & CPU) im running a water clock from an ever cool system but with a 2.5 gal resivor with a 80 gallon per hour setup. it stays about 100 degF on a 90 degF day. in game it runs about 110 degF. so yea i love my liquid cooled setup i made. it will be updated with 2 water pumps (80gal per hour) and a better radiator. cant wait till winter hits hehe.

so help me out here. i know how to build the best PC's made but im dammed to know the software part. i want to overclock it where its stable but a killer!

You'd probably get a better answer from the forums not called "News."

Anyways, go to the AMD CPU section of the forum and post this. Also, once you click on that section of the forum you'll see some FAQs on the right side of the forum; I'd recommend reading some of those before doing anything, even after people tell you what to do/what to adjust, because they're pretty informative. Look for the "guides to overclocking" ones.

ty much. im going to try to understand it. what is HTT

i am LOST! some screen shots would be nice of a DFI settings. theres nothing in there with HTT or nothing like that.

just increae your fsb. fsb x cpu multiplier equals the total system speed.

fsb time the multiplier equals the ram speed.

so if your fsb is 200 and your multi is 9x then you have a 1.8 system speed.

say you increase the fsb to 250, then your multi is still 9x. then your overclock will be 2250.

However, if your ram can only go up to 200mhz, then you will have to run a divider. 200/250 equals 8/10ths. so a 8/10s divider would be ideal.

does that help at all, I hope it did.

In DFI boards the HTT is call LDT

Check out this great guide ...
http://www.overclock.net/faqs/38268-...roduction.html

Some of the basics to learn
1. This one you know and other stuff you will know from your previous experance so bear with me, it all adds up As you up the CPU's bus speed (FSB) so does the RAM's bus speed increase. What is also effected is #2.
2. The RAM is running at it's native speeds, default DDR400 rund 200MHz, The LDT or HTT is default of 5x200=1000. Here is where hte relative CPU increase comes into effect. As the CPU bus is increased you have to adjust the LDT multiplyer to compensate and generally want to keep it below 1000 but it can usually go as high as 1080MHz safely. So with a CPU bus of up to 260 use 4x LDT beyond that drop to 3x.
3. More on RAM. Depandant on the RAM, you may need to slow it's default speed down so that it's not overclock beyond it's ability.
There are many ways to deal with this, like up the RAM's voltage, adjust it's timings and the part you may need to learn, "dividers" which in basics would be setting DDR400 RAM to DDR333 or DDR266 speeds. Those speeds as said earlier will increase with the CPU's bus speed increases. YOu will learn the finer points in that link on dividers because DFI provides morr divider incriments than just dropping to DDR333 or DDR266 speeds. That allows you to get then most performance out of the RAM
Check another FAQ by "ncsa" on the components in the link below!
Do remember typically DFI and ABIT use "LDT" for the more common HTT.

I suggest you read a review of your mobo, they ALWAYS talk about the BIOS and give a good explanation of it.
