OCing my 3200 Venice - new to the forums

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Heelllloo all

Ive been lurking the forums for the past week, gathering amazing data on further OCing my 3200 Venice Core CPU. I loved OCing my older AMD chips so much that I knew I had to go the OC route with this new one.

However, while looking around the site I learned that the way I overclocked my past machines was completely halfassed.

Ive been testing for the past few days (yes I had nothing better to do this weekend other than OC my system) and Ive upped the CPU from my original half-hearted 2200mHz with no voltage change and stock RAM timings, to an all manual setup running at cool 39 degrees celcius idle and about 55 degrees celcius under full load

I did the best I could with my RAM timing (2.5-4-5-6-2T), my generic brand RAM doesnt like to be tweaked much, and the mem dividers on the ASUS A8N board are quite lacking as most of you know.

Well thats enough of the talk, lets get down to the real numbers. I think I can still go higher, the RAM is gonna stop me at 2.5 I am afraid Ive still got plenty of vcore and HTT to go though, and temps are doing pretty good for having a stock CPU heatsink/fan

yeah 2.6 easy I can get my 3000+ to 2.5 if i really try.

Hmm are you running 3 sticks of ram? I am wondering how you can to 1534. A lot of A64 only like 2 sticks or ram. As the additional sticks stress the mem controller.

thanks for the input

Ive got it at 2555 right now, so yea 2.6 is easy.

However Im notiveing the RAM going NUTS as far as temperature is concerned... Im gonna need some heatsinking or something for them - I know of only one thing to fix that, and that would be 'heat spreaders' is there any other product that would help with my RAM-heat issue?

How can Cpu temp and Core temp be same ? That's weird. There is 20C difference in my readings.

I do not know, Ive often wondered about that since I updated speedfan... :/

I choose to ignore the 'CPU' temp and concentrate on the 'Core' temp since the core temp is taken from a location closer to the actual die on the chip.

Also keep in mind you have a COMPLETELY different board/processor/cooling application than I, so comparing temps of my air cooled Venice on an ASUS board to temps of your water cooled Opty on a DFI board is more or less a moot point.

Yes, i know but the sensors are in different places. I didn't say there must be a 20C difference between them.
That screnie was taken on idle anyway. Are the temps still same (too close) when the system is on load ?

Yea, 'core' is at 57 while prime95 testing, and 'CPU1' is at 54. however, MB & northbus are both hovering 37-39

Im thinking I have 'cpu1', 'mb', and 'northbus' labelled incorrectly, looking into the config for speedfan once again, they all have the same chip address "IT8712F" @ $290 on the ISA bus, then the sensors are named 'Temp1' 'Temp2' and 'Temp3'

got it up to ~2600mhz with a 305mhz FSB, temps are killing me now, so Ive gotta back off. 4 hours on prime95 netted a 61-62 degree core temp, so ive hit my limit until I get better cooling, but still - out of the stock heatsink/fan Im content for now
