Using AMD Overdrive as example , Memory Frequency value never used before. - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
I think its both...
Not sure if that is possible but what if i have a CPU that needs to be drowned in Voltage to increase and also a low budget motherboard that cant keep VRM's cool enough to actualy push it further.

Sinds increasing Vcore = increasing Heat rolleyes.gif


I stil make many newbie mistakes , yesterday i put my 3,7Ghz clock wich was running on 420 Mhz ram back to 667 Mhz (by changing Auto to manual in the bios.
Ran some stabilitie tests and everything is fine :3

U know what im stil a newbie but i got a nice 3,7Ghz OC on this Board wich i think is the limit of the current state of my system.

Cooling Improvements are Fun, im not sure how to add a Fan to the VRM's or how do i know i am Overheating and Throttling (overheat wil turn the system off as it has that security)
But for Throttling or Windows going Corrupt i dont know how to see this or fix... thumb.gif\\


Ps. im stil curious what parts i can upgrade other then cooling.

The VRMs are located between the CPU and the I/O panel. Stick your hand in there and touch them. If you get burned they might be too hot. Touch the case behind the VRMs and if it is too hot to touch they are too hot.
I got an infrared thermometer for $25USD and found that my VRMs never get hotter than 44C, while other boards get into the 70C range.
