Noob needs help OC'ing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, this is my first time on this site and I need some help OC'ing. I would greatly appreciate your assistance in this matter. =P

My rig...

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Newcastle 2.0GHz Socket 754 Processor Model ADA3000BOX - Retail
Epox 8KDA3J
1.5G Ram Corsair DDR400 (PC3200)
Radeon X800 XT PE

Can you guys tell me step by step or the configuration that can be set so I have a stable system. I am hoping to increase my CPU performance to maybe 2.2ghz.

Thanks for your help guys. =P

P.S. Please be specific and be lenient on the technology language for I am not to accustomed to it.

Welcome to overclock.net...

First tell me what kind of power supply you have. (how much power)

Hi oyku and WELCOME "
Please fill in the "System Specs" link via the USER CP at the top of the page, it's helpful.

Some things you need to know
OCing the CPU effects the RAM's speed and it needs to be controled. To do that the HTT multiplyer or in some BIOS the LDT works like this...
Your is running 800MHz @ default, that is accomplished by multiplying the RAM's 200MHz speed by 4x or 200x4=800
If you increase the CPU's default 200MHz bus speed the RAM also increases.
That "800" factor should be kept near that speed so ...
Lets say you up the CPU to a 250 and still have an HTT multiplyer of 5 you would have 4x250=1000 and could cause instability.
BTW, some BIOS do not use the "4" x where as they use an HTT of the total or "800" so ...
4x or 800
3x or 600

Hope I'v not thrown to much at you

More to come but at the what to set more that what it all means

You know.. i just started OCing tonight.. and well i had a few questions as well.. i just figured i'd post in here rather than make my own.

Well, i have the following readings on CPU-Z

Voltage: 1.360V
Core Speed: 2527.3 Mhz
Multiplier: 12x
Bus Speed: 210.5 Mhz
HT Link: 631.8 Mhz
CPU Temp: 48C

Now.. my question is...
I lowered my HTT Multiplier to 3x From 5X so my 1000 Mhz wouldn't change much... But now its at 631. Does that mean i have alot of free space to OC More? And is my CPU temp high? I just wanna know what direction i should go in next.

Your CPU temp is fine. Keep it under 60C to be safe. I'm sure you can push that CPU pretty far (3Ghz my bet). Try Pushing up the FSB now and the mem won't interfere. Find a point when:

a) Motherboard won't boot in to windows
b) Temps become too high.

Well ok, I have:
Core Speed: 2.667 Mhz
Bus Speed: 215.8 Mhz
HT Link: 826.7 Mhz

How do i raise just the FSB speed? Cause in the BIOS i've been changing the CPU Speed... But it doesnt say FSB anywhere, do you know where it would be in BIOS?

Edit: Sorry... Im a little too tired to be asking questions. I know how to change the bus speed.. i've been doing it for the past hour.
