OC failed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody!
I've been working on overclocking my AMD X2 3800+, the only problem is i CAN'T!
I used another "guide" from to OC:
http://www.short-media.com/forum/showthread.php?t=48877, where someone wrote this "formular":

FSB=301
Multiplier=9
Vcore=1.47
3x htt
w/DDR2 800 divided to 533 at 4.4.3.12. 2T


But my result was this :
CPU speed: 1980,1 MHz
CPU multiplier: 9x
CPU FBS 220 MHz

I REALLY dont understand what went wrong, since the guy who posted the other thread had the same specs at me. I'm a newb.

Here's my specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X" Dual Core Processor 3800+
ASUS m2n-SLi Deluxe
2 GB Kingston DDR2-433 SDRAM

Each time i overclock and press F10 (Save and Exit), my computer freezes when it restarts at moment where it shows the logo of my Motherboard and i can press DELETE to enter my BIOs.
I've only managed to overclock to 2.2 by Using AI Overclock and overclocking 10 %..Though i'd like to OC around 2.4-6!

Thank you on forehand!

The first thing to realise is that not all CPU's are created equal (ok, the same goes for every other piece of hardware...)

Work through something like this and see how it goes... oh and feel free to introduce your self here and please fill in your PC specs here...

Hope that helps

yes thenailedone is right, even though the model and the specs on the cpu may be the same, they are not created equal. ever hear of the word stepping? its basically when the cpu was manufactuered. your stepping is prollie different

Okay guys, thanks for the answers!
I tried to OC by settin the multiplier to 8 and my CPU frequency to 280
8x280=2240??? My result was 1680, why? because for some stupid reason i crashed when I restarted my computer after pressing F10 and then it said failed boot, well i just pressed F1 and continued.
For some silly reason it'd changed the Bus Speed from 280 to 210 :/

Btw, no matter how small a thing I adjust in the JumperFree Configuration my pc freezes when I restart it .. It freezes in the beginning, when i can choose to enter the BIOs setup.
How can I avoid that problem?

Is Cool N Quiet enabled in the BIOS, if so disable it.

Personally, I like to stay on the stock multiplier, then just push my FSB speed up until something stops me from going further... then the rest gets complicated for most n00bs, but it's a good way to start.
