Need help with Overclocking Athlon 64 X2 3800+ on GA-M56S-S3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is my first post so I most warmly welcome everybody. I did my first OC just a couple of days ago. There still are many confusing aspects of the whole game for me and I don't quite grasp all the interdependencies yet. Forgive me that please as well as my possibly inadequate usage of English - it's not my mother tongue. My specs and state of OC are as follows:
3800+ (ADA3800IAA5CU - F2 89W) @2.76GHz 1.375V
Gigabyte GA-M56S-S3
Chipset: nVIDIA nForce 560
A-Data 2x 1GB DDR2-800 (4-5-5-18 @1.8V)
CR: 1T
Multi: 9.5x
Award BIOS F6h
OS1: 7 Pro 32-bit
OS2: 8.1 Pro 32-bit
OS3: 8.1 Pro 32-bit
EVGA e-GeForce GT 610 2GB
No aftermarket cooler

What I would like to know is how to push it up higher, say up to 2.7 or maybe even 2.8 with stock cooling. I know some guys on this forum made it to 2.8 so obviously something can be done here but I'm not an expert. This is where you come in and my kind request for help. I will be insanely grateful for any specific hints.

@all

Hi,
Can anybody give me some feedback on this, please.
CPU Freq is 278 now at 1.375V.
Cool N Quiet: Disabled
Smart CPU Fan Control: Disabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled
SATA Spread Spectrum: Disabled
HT Spread Spectrum: Disabled
and then: K8<->NB HT Speed: 3x
K8<->NB HT Width: 16x
CR: 1T
Win on performance mode

I can push it up to 280, make a clean POST to Windows but IntelBurn Test freezes me after few minutes. Suprisinly Prime doesn't puke on me after 6-7hrs. Is there anything specific I can change to be stable there?

screens are coming soon
