Need some help Overclocking a AMD CPU

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Aspire X1301 System with a AMD Athlon II X2 215

I'm using Nvida System Tools. It's a OEM Locked Bios can only Overclock with Software. http://oi43.tinypic.com/289h2wz.jpg (Picture of the software I'm using)

Computer Specs
AMD Athlon II X2 215 (Dual Core 2.7Ghz),
Transcend Information PC2-6400 (400hmz) 2gb x2 http://oi41.tinypic.com/2zdt4de.jpg
Stock Fan
Upgraded
Bigger Case
3tb Sata
350W PSU (Was a 220w)
Radeon HD 7750 OC.

I overclocked the 200Mhz HT Bus to 253Mhz giving my CPU 3.4 GHZ and the Ram to 506Mhz.
I ran Prime95 for 24hrs no issues at all. Temp only raised 5c.

Everything is stable no crashes or any issues.


I've been looking around the forums and notice people saying you should keep your HT Bus Frequency at or near stock. Stock speed is 1800Mhz. but with my Stable Overclock it's at 2277Mhz http://oi41.tinypic.com/29ok2hg.jpg

Since Prime95 ran all night long and was stable with no issues am I in the clear? Or should I lower the Multiplier.
If I lower the Multiplier do I lose any speed?

If Prime95 is running smoothly on both high memory and low memory usage configurations, theoretically you should be in the clear. I wouldn't expect to see much of a difference, if any, by lowering the HT Bus frequency back to it's normal speeds though. I guess it depends on whether you are confident that the overclock that you have performed is stable or now.

Hope this helps!
