Please, I need help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have achieved 2.7G (245 x 11) with my amd 4200+. My temps are 33c idle and 41-42c while under load. The highest temp I've seen is 54c while running SuperPi and downloading 4 games at the same time. I did it just to see if I could hang it up or something and the computer just tore through it like it was nothing. (I love my watercooling kit- I would recommend it to anyone)
Anyway, the system is perfectly stable and runs cool but I can't help but wonder how much faster it could be.
I have the vCore turned up to 1.45 volts. How much more could I be able to overclock this cpu and what voltage would be sufficient? Does the multiplier make a whole lot of difference? For example I have seen people with 600x6 and people with 400x9 to get 3.6G Which is better?
Anyway here's a screenshot of cpuz. Thanks for any input!

P.S. I get a score of 5345 on 3dmark06. Does this sound kinda low for what I'm running?

i think you should make HT link x4 so its about 1000 because 1225 seems VERY high to me.

Also personally i find doing say 225x12 to get 2700 is better than 270x10.

yea, drop the ht multi to 3x if you want to go higher than 250fsb.

I have no idea how that happened. I must've changed it by accident and then saved the changes in my bios. I'll start there. How do I changet that back to 1000? Or should I go lower?
Also the multiplier on the a8n32-sli only goes to 11x. I'll try to find a frequency divisible by that.
Thank you.

Hey, do you think 3.0 Ghz is possible with my combo?

You can't necessarly chang it to "1000" unless you happen top have the CPU @ 250 and the memory multiplyer @ 4x!
4x for a CPU bus speed of up to 260 then drop to 3x for up to 360. Those will keep it at or below the usually stable 1080 max. Some MBs can go higher and be stable but there is no performance advantage to it!
