What would you reccomend to start with?

Just start upping it in small steps.

Do you have a temperature monitoring program? If not, download something like speedfan http://www.almico.com/speedfan432.exe and see what the temperatures are. Show a screenshot if you have difficulty interpreting the numbers.

Most important is the load temperature. To put a good load on the CPU, you can use Orthos: http://sp2004.fre3.com/beta/beta2.htm

Not sure what the limits are for older AMDs... I would say below 55C for sure under Orthos load.

Check that all...and let us know what the temps are (check at stock first)

SpeedFan is installed...things are changing very fast. Here is a list of current temperatures without overclocking.

Temp 1: 30
Temp 2: -71
Temp 3: 38
Local: 45 (Sometimes it has a red arrow pointing up, mostly blue though.)
Remote: 28
HD0: 30
Temp 1: 25
Core: 36

I couldn't get your other program installed. Are my temps okay now, before overcloking?

Installed Orthos...not sure how to correctly use it though.

Paul, your temps are OK to start overclocking, but I wouldn't let it get too much above 50-55C. BTW, is that a socket A or 754 3100+?...if it is socket A, then it can handle higher temps, but will likely be more limited on how high you can take your cpu. Good luck!

Thanks for your response, ColdTriton. I really appreciate it. It is a socket 754. Does anyone know how to use the Orthos program?

Thanks,

Would any one know what the max that you can overclock the 3100+ using this method. I've got it at 2100 MHz and want to go higher, but have reservations. Thanks

Hi,

My MOBO is 2100 MHZ. How did you overclock it? I used ClockGen. I am very interested in learning how you did it.
