Help:amd 3700+ Kab2e Isn't Budging! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, well, nothing worked.

I tryed my Mobo's auto overclock to see what it did.
I turned it up to max, and it OC'ed to 2750 Mhz, but the idle temp is 40C and the Max is in the mid 50's. It set the voltage to 1.55 and made the memory run at 161 mhz, and the HT is 4 because the CPU is at 250 and the rating is 1000 Mhz. I just don't understand. It allows itself to give it self voltage that I am retstricted from.

Wierd - its an Micro-ATX board, and you can't really expect any more TBH without replacing your cooler to allow more volts and replacing your motherboard.

Unless there are V-mods/custom BIOSes for your board?

Yea you definately need a new cooler.

Your problem is that you cannot put any volts into the CPU because fo the temps.

If you had decent temps to put the volts up you would get a better OC.

Try putting your volts up to 1.35 or 1.40 (don't let temps get past 1.55V)

In your screeny it only shows your Vcore at 1.3 and i think that may be why you can't get past 2.5Ghz.

I can get to 2.75 stable on mine with 1.35Vcore so you may be able to get to about 2.6 or even a bit more.

No, that doesn't work. No matter what I do, it won't go past 233 on my own, only in manual OC. Temps are an issue ATM.
