AMD Athlon X2 4850e & AMD Radeon HD 5450

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, community: Thanks for having me.
Just want to pick some brains (not a zombie) and have been here over the years re: curiosity about the witchcraft.
I'm dealing with my first serious OC on a desktop that I acquired and upgraded (somewhat).

eMachines et1331g-05w
MB: MCP61PM-GM with NVIDIA chipset (chipset Rev. A3: Southbridge Rev. A2)
What has been upgraded >
AMD Athlon X2 4850e
PCI-e AMD Radeon HD 5450
6GB RAM PC2-6400
Active fan on MCP chip
Antec Basiq BP500U 500W
Various drives and USB add-ons

Everything is quick and stable but I wanted to upgrade the CPU again as this is where I am bottlenecking.
Thought I would run nTune on auto-tuning mode and note what settings are changed. It is believed that I learned some basics but not quite enough to go solo. Looking for a little insight as to what settings can improve the overall speed of this machine.
The nTune auto-tune got me from 2.5GHz to 2.75GHz. Not much but noticeable. Of course it will not load with Windows (can tweak that later) but I have the save file on desktop and configured to open with nTuneCmd when clicked. Works.
Let me know what other info may be relevant but in the meantime here's a few pics if anyone cares to help an old fool tweak this Frankenstein:

Check your bios if you have any option to change multipliers (although I doubt there is if its OEM emachines)
Its always better and more stable to overclock in the bios.

As for bottlenecking, do you mean in games?
That athlon x2 wont bottleneck an HD5450, in fact its the other way around.
The HD5450 wasn't designed for gaming, it was made simply for desktop usage (browsing, videos, etc, for motherboards that have really crappy integrated graphics)

Any 2.5 Ghz dualcore will be good enough to pair with an HD6570 or GT430, at most an R7 240 or GT640.
I suggest you look into replacing the HD5450 if you will play games.

You can put a lot more voltage in that CPU as long as you have the cooling. I think when I had my BE-2400 at 2.75ghz I had it at 1.265v? If you can, try 1.25v and make sure you don't go above 70c on the CPU.

If you can't touch voltage then you might be stuck where you are at, that CPU is an extra low voltage part so over clocking on stock voltage is limited.

Thanks for the feedback. As we are in the middle of moving this will take a couple days.
Really; I appreciate it and will continue anon.
