Overclocking 3700+ Athlon with stock cooling - Page 2

post #11 of 53
HTT is combined with your multiplier to calculate CPU speed. Your CPU comes at an 11x multiplier and 200htt making 2.2ghz. If you raise your HTT to 201 then you are at 2211 Mhz and so on.

Be sure to read this Guide:

As far as it goes but it depends on the stepping, post a screenie of cpuz.

That really depends on the stepping and how good your cooling is. The stepping is basically a stamp of when it was made and what batch it was part of. The stepping directly on the Cpu, did you take a look at it before you put your heatsink one?
The stepping is made of letters and numbers for example I think one of the 3700+ Steppings is KACAE.
And as for temp goes it should stay under 55C at full load. If you need a way to find your max temp I recommend running Prime 95 using the Torture Test option.

you only need to raise your vcore when your overclock is unstable raise your htt=fsb by 5 and set your vcore to stock when you cant raise itand boot then you may need to up the vcore...
maybe read this for some tips..

And if you guys are wondering, I turned off the desktop Icons, I am using an alienware gui, and I am using smartguardian for my temps. I have stock cooling also.

I do not know the Max Hyper Link speed for that board but once you hit 220FSB or so it is recommended to change the HTT Multiplier from 5x to 4x, this is different than the CPU Multiplier. Also if you break 275 HTT then you should change it to 3x.
