AMD 3500+ Venice

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to clock my AMD 3500+ Venice, but i can't get above 2,48 ghz, if i try, he crashes after some a few seconds or minutes.

I'm clocking with clockgen.

I don't know what to do, the voltage doesn't go up it's always at about 1.39-1,41 (at 2,46 ghz)
my mainboard: Asus A8N SLI Deluxe
my memory: dimm 512 mb ddr pc-400 CL3 kingston

i don't know why it crashes as the temperature stays at 39-41° all the time

please help me

ps i don't have my desktop pc running 24/7, is that a problem with overclocking it at startup?)

You have a decent motherboard why in the world are you using a crappy program like clockgen? Its always better to overclock in the BIOS.

Try these settings 240mhz FSB 11x multi HTT x4 , put your memory to 333 . and bump up your vcore to 1.5 volts and see what that gets ya. Monitor your temps to. 240x11 will yield you 2.6 GHZ.

and please fill in all of your system specs in your user cp. it makes helping you alot easier.

please fill out your user CP

in any case you shouldn't overclock w/ clockgen. use the BIOS. Asus boards have a nice easy BIOS to operate within.

in any case to hit some numbers with the venice core you need around 1.45-1.5vcore. that should get you to at least 2.6 if not higher.

so you wont overclock your memory too much, also make sure your timings aren't to low, loosen them up (higher them)

hit delete as your pc is starting up. should bring you to the bios. maybe you should read the FAQ on overclocking before you get started

when you higher the fsb (front side bus) you also speed up your ram, because fsb is the setting for the internal speed off your pc, so when highering the fsb, you higher clockspeed of the ram and the cpu

search for a setting called fsb, higher that setting to 220 to start with, then 230, 240, you get the point,
BUT when you're pc isn't stable you have to higher voltages, just search the bios, you'll find it

yeah, if you don't even know how to get into BIOS you need to educate yourself a little before you make a wrong setting and POOF.
