GA-M57SLI-S4(Rev 1.0) overclocking it

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
every time i set the cpu frequency and clock ratio to anything it does nothing. like i set the cf to 260 and clock to 10 so i would get a cpu speed of 2.6 instead of 2.4 and it still read 2.4 from the cpu speed reader that i downloaded. i have tired 3.0 too. could it be my bios so i up date it. help me. email me at anhil8or@msn.com

Your system is probably testing before posting and can not post with the settings so it falling back to the default settings and posting that way. What you are probably having issue with is your memory, and not running it on a divider. For instance if you have DDR2-667 memory you might want to run it at at DDR2-533. You really should read this Ultimate Overclocking Guide and work through it. It is directed more towards a system with DDR memory instead of DDR2 but it will give you a good idea of what I mean by running your memory on a divider.

Usually the blue screen errors are due to memory or some software issue. Memory is still an issue it seems so run your memory on a higher divider and see what your processor can do. Run it at 550MHz, 500MHz or even 450MHz to see what you processor is capable of. If you find that you are at a stonewall at 2.55GHz even with a higher diveder you may have reached your max. The last thing you can do is increase your vcore. The standard is like 1.3 to 1.35 volts. Opterons tend to overclock great until 2.6 to 2.7GHz then they need addtional voltage to break past that barrier. Try upping your voltagbe and monitoring your temperatures. You do not want to breach 55*c and try to keep it to below 50*c under full-load. By full-load I mean two instances of Prime95 or Orthos in which you can stress your system past 8 hours without error. Good luck, and take it slow and easy.

You can't just stick it up to 3.0ghz and hope that it'll works - you may kill your hardware though.

In the BIOS, up the FSB 5mhz and then boot into Windows. Download CPU-Z and see if it says its gone up. If it has, run Prime95 for an hour or so and then repeat until Prime95 is unstable. Then up the VCore one notch and try again
