OC Help Plz...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Im new to this ive done allot of playin around with my computer and some research but i cant seem to get it right.

What i got and my questions...

Motherboard- ASUS m3a78-em
with everything ive seen on OC this motherboard is different i cannot manually increase voltages only have 3 options of increases +50mv +100mv or +150mx does anyone have expierence with this motherboard or bios type i have pic of bios attached.450 450 450

CPU- amd 64 x2 6000+
ive seen people getting this cpu to 3.4-3.6 but i cant get past 3.1 withought a illegal summout error from prime 95 thats with increasing my cpu +100mv any higher it get a little warm i preffer it stays under 60c anyone have sugestions on settings to start at.

OCZ platinum 1066 ram 2g
i have 4 of them installed on my motherboard i dont think im getting anywere near what i should out of them there only running at 400mhz timing of 5-5-5-14-24 at 1.8 volts i am new but shouldnt i get allot more out of these ram chips at least 800mhz i was thinkin maybe this is why i cant achieve a good OC on my processor... ive never understood the timing part of ram anyone have a good turtorial?

Video- Geforce 9800 gtx+
when im playin games i get a sudden FPS drop and lags i was thinkin it was because of my cpu bein slow i currently have my GPU oc to 800mhz on core 1992 on shaders its stable i ran 3dmark for at least a hour i dont think im getting what i should out of my graphics card due to my processor. i lag on starcraft 2 sudden FPS drop wouldnt wana know how skyrim plays on it lol...

Ive been playin with it for allong time now i go a few days of non stop dinkin and give up all with the same results slow laggy cpu and cannot achieve a good OC i would just go and buy all new and start over but ya know... i will give a great big thanks to anyone that gives me some ideas...

wlel the setup isnt exactly great for todays Games. You really shoudl think of crossing over to a quadcore.

what sort of cooling are you using?

If stick cooler u will not achieve thoe clocks without bumping voltage and cooling it properly.


otherwise I am sorry, im pretty useless these days, last good overclocking I did was AMD Socket 939

its this stupid board i hate asus but as of right now i cant do nothin about it i played all day with it tryin to get it faster i dont get it when i benchmark using 3d mark im way behind even the guys that are not OC so something is wrong with my setup board cpu psu ram i dunno what... im using a vigor monsoon 3lt for cooling should be more than enough for OC this chip... really the only game i play is starcraft 2 i get 30 FPS when there not mutch on the playin map seems like i should get 60 sometimes my fps drops really low and when it gets intence i lag really bad... i think i need a new motherboard to start...

after allot of throwin stuff and bein mad all day im finally getting some were like i said im new to this but i finally achieved a dram of 480 wich is 960 on my ram close to 1066 also got a 3361 on my cpu wich is better im currently testing with prime 95 its been a hour no errors yet these are my current setting anyone have a idea to get the full 1066 out of my ram and maybe oc a little further ive heard of 3500 on cpu once...lol...


Name AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Codename Brisbane
Specification AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+
Package Socket AM2 (940)

Core Speed 3361.8 MHz
Multiplier x FSB 13.5 x 249.0 MHz
HT Link speed 996.1 MHz
Stock frequency 3100 MHz
i am maxed out on my vcore +150mv i also have my northbridge +100mv the mosfets seem a little warm should i be worried? i ended up settin my ram chips to its max voltage from what it says on the sticker on the chip wich is 2.2v and went from there stupid me i tried this before and never thought to do that played with it for 3 days i may be maxed out right now but my goal was to achieve full 1066 on ram chips...

well in the old days, AMD cared less for High memory CLocks, and More for Tigher Timings. it was Intell that always preferred the higher Bandwidth vs timings.


but if you want the higher MHZ number on your ram, then Loosen the timings, get in there and raise the numbers a bit, and then see what happens.

benchmark at both option, Highest Memory speed, or Tightest Timingsm both with the best CPU OC you can achieve.

its time for him to upgrade i thinkgs all around - New mobo, new Proc, New Ram. Better stuff wont cost that much either, but def get a decent mobo - never short change your Mobo , ram is easy to change out later, but DDR2 is not worth buying anymore - get you self a DDR3 Build

Starcraft2 shouldnt require TOO much GPU power, if I am not mistaken for a game like that with many units on screen, the Processor is goijng to be the first limiting factor.

and Quad Core is going to allow the machine to run its fullest

^ LOL.

the x4 6000+ may have a 125W TDP but it is a dual core.  It is nowhere near actually as stressful nor actually consuming this much power as quad cores.  A 4+1 phase system is plentiful for the 6000+, and it also does not require split phasing; a reliable, cooled 4-phase system could push it well.  The VRMs should certainly not be left without cooling no matter what the case though - especially with voltage increases.  Stock/downward-blowing coolers provide some cooling through airflow.

im thinkin my psu might be failing i had my cpu OC to 3361 ran prime 95 for 6 hours come back good no errors i also put some heat sink on the VRMs xd_1771 was right they needed cooling i had also OC my GPU to 800 mhz i ran prime 95 and ati tool both at the same time for 2 1/2 hours after OC no artifacts but yesterday starts the BSOD today i ran prime 95 for 5 min got a rounding error .05 expected .04 also run memtest 20 min in got errors and i run ati tool wasnt 1min in got errors my PSU is a raidmax rx 530ss yea i know raidmax sucks i noticed my GPU minimum was 450w +12v 24 amp my psu puts out 20 amps on the +12 could this be a problem? i have been told over and over that my problem could be the psu is there a way to see if its goin bad? i already ordered a new one anyways should work with anything that im goin to build in the future its a OCZ zx serries 1000w i have a few days before it gets here and i want to know is there a way to test the psu or any signs anyone knows of that a psu might be failing?
