GA-K8NF-9 N4

AMD64 3000+ ( for now )

2GBs DDR400 dual channel

Need alittle help, want to get some more base speed out of my chip, I've read FAQ's and some of them suggest things but when I start them the system freezes cause the jump is too high. And I don't understand enough about Voltages to mess with them ...


Anyone got time to explain to a nub OCer?

Sure, one of the first things you wanna do when OC'ing an A64 system is turn down the HT to 800 ( or 4x i dont know what it is in your bios). Then step up the FSB about 5Mhz @ a time. If you are unshure of how far you ram can go i suggest you drop it down to the next lowest divider. After a 5Mhz step, i boot into windows and then just go back and do it again. and every 25Mhz boost on the FSB i personally run OCCT to do a quick stability check, if it fails bump up the voltage the smallest increment you can. then run again. just keep doing that untill you get yo 269 fsb if you can get that far i like to lower the HT to 600 ( or 3x)

Well start with Bountyhead's instruction to see how far you can get with stability. Once you start to freeze up is the time to consider raising your vcore. You will only find the feature to change the vcore when you use the CTRL/F1 in the BIOS like Duke said. Raising vcore is always a risk to some degree but so long as you have sufficient cooling and you keep the vcore within 10% of the original you should be "safe". Hope that gives you a good start.

For checking stability download super pi, OCCT and any other of your favorite stability programs and run them from 15min to 24 hours depending on the amount of stability you are looking for. When raising your FSB 5MHz at a time I would run a 15 min stability check but once you are finding the top end consider running anywhere from 6-24 hrs for ultimate stability.

Good luck!
