Biostar MoBo Help; Overclocking Issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My current MoBo is a Biostar A780L3B:
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=536&tab=3

I'm having difficulty overclocking my Athlon II X4 630.
For the CPU VID (aka CPU voltage), I'm stuck at 1.25V and can only under-volt it.
Does anyone know what I can possibly do?
I have the latest BIOS just in case you're wondering.

that motherboard is not meant for overclocking with a 3 Phase VRM setup i wont even recommend you to overclock a dual core buddy you might end up with some fire on the motherboard wink.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Tarun is right, but my own systems which are 3+1 phase and using an Athlon X3 445 I have Oc'ed it to 4.0 Ghz @1.6v and issues and have used it for a long time but when you up the voltage you start the cpu degradation process plus the overall heat increases so you have 3+1 phase where the voltages regulation is not too good, mild overclocking is Ok says till about 3.5-3.7 just keep it at that and use a good cooler but keep the voltage under 1.5v for safety.

Ah oh well then.
Might as well live with it until an upgrade is in place.
