OC newbie.. AMD system OC limits?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all, just finished my AMD rig and was wondering what kind of OC to expect with air cooling..

Specs:
ASUS M2N SLI Deluse 570 chipset
Antec TP2 550 PSU
Thermaltake matrix 3000 (fans - 120mm front and 120mm back)
AMD AM2 4200+ (upped FSB ratio 2.1Ghz -> 2.22GHz)
eVGA 7950GT GPU (560/1450 stock)
500Gb SATA Seagate HDD
Dell 20.1 2005 FPW monitor (1680 x 1050)
2GB Corsair 6400 4-4-4-12 DDR2 800 mem

Readings using Asus PC probe and Rivatuner (idle):
CPU core - 1.36 - 1.38V
CPU - 34-37 C
Mobo - 36-38 C
GPU - 45-48C
HDD - 32-35C
3D Mk6 score - 5169

Do these look normal/optimal? How much juice should I expect out of this config without volt modding or water cooling?

thanks in advance
My System

Looking good! I speculate 2.8MHz out of the 4200+. Don't jump up that high at first, start by working up the CPU OC at default voltage first. Watch your full load temps and keep the ceiling @ 50c.
The AM2, like most 939 don't seem to need a lot of voltage, usually below the mid 1.5v range does great on air cooling.

OH! A HI and WELCOME to you too
