Asus K8V-X Overclocking BIOS Menu Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,

This is one hell of a first post here. I have been a lurker in the background for some time but am stumped on this one and could require some assistance.

I have a Asus K8V-X Mobo, AMD Athlon 64 3200+ running at 2.25 GHz, Zalman ultra cool heatsink and fan. 3DDR PC3200 512K Ram in series.

other goodies too but I dont think pertain to my problem.

I understand how to change multiplier, HTT, and different things like that to overclock (based on what I have read anyway) but the bios on this is different from any config I have ever seen.

There is a jumper free config menu that has
--> CPU FSB Freq (200-215MHZ)
--> CPU Speed/Voltage Setting (Auto/Manual)
--> CPU Speed (800MHz - 2200MHz)
--> CPU Voltage (ranges)
--> DDR Voltage (Auto, 2.6V, 2.7V, 2.8V)
--> AGP Voltage (1.5V, 1.7V)
--> V-Link Voltage (2.5V, 2.6V)
--> Performance Mode (Auto/Standard/Turbo)

now the question is, I do not have an option to adjust the multiplier, and I am currently running at 1.5V CPU Voltage, and 205 FSB Freq. CPU speed is at 800mhz, because I do not understand what I am adjusting there, and other settings are on the default setting.

I cannot descern how to adjust for a set clock speed, I was hoping to run stable at about 2.4 - 2.5.

Problem is looking at my current setting I cannot even figure out how to tell that I am running at 2.25 GHz without looking in windows.

If you have any advice please post, I am lost and google has only brought me so far.

Esentially I want to overclock it as I bought some new cooling system components, but I dont know how to do it.

Thanks

Brendan

Your CPU Speed setting in the jumperfree menu is the multiplier selection (it registers the standard speed of your processor and does the math accordingly). Your max multiplier is 10, so 2000 MHz is your max multiplier, 1800 MHz would be the same as setting the multiplier down to 9, and so on.

What conuses me is that you say your speed is 2.25 with a 205 FSB...which means your multiplier HAS to be 11! Odd.

I'll just add in (sorry, but true) that the motherboard of yours doesn't overclock well.
It's because it's a VIA chipset, so it doesn't have any PCI/AGP lock. This might sound like something you don't understand, but it's also a bit hard to explain.

I'll try explaining PCI and AGP frequency.

Your PCI and AGP frequency is at stock, running 33.3 MHz and 66.6 MHz each, and you want them to stick to this.

PCI-E instead of AGP is found on some boards which runs 100 MHz instead of the 66.6 MHz, and is also double-way.

Thanks for the help guys

The first config I tried, it was 2.25 Ghz. 1.5V CPU, 205 FSB and 2200 CPU Speed.

The Other config I have tried is 1.525V, 210 FSB, and 2200CPU SPEED, indicated speed at 2.31.

So I think I have an 11x multiplier... wierd

2200 (CPU SPEED) / 200 = 11X Multiplier

11 x 210 (FSB) = 2.31Ghz (What windows is registering at)

Ok, so now I think I have figured out how to get the overclocking going, but want to know

My asusutility is telling me that my VCore is at 1.433V when I have it set at 1.55 in the BIOS.

Is this typical?
