Just bought a AMD system :D

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just bought the system below in my sig! It should all be here by Sat, and I can get some pics up.


I read in one of the reviews on Newegg that you had to flash some sort of new BIOS before installing windows on the tForce 550. Is this true?


I also don't really understand OCing a AMD system, so could someone explain it?


Thanks.

You should have an easy oc, that cpu oc's really good. people getting 3ghz on h2o. You will need to turn off cool and quiet, play with the multi and buss. I don't know about the flash tho.

Upgrade the cpu cooler you will need it, when you have to start raising your cpu voltage.

Your sig system shows a C2D E6600.

I don't think there's a whole lot to OC'ing an AMD rig that you also don't have to worry about with other rigs--just tweak the FSB and voltages--might have to use a divider on your RAM, and that should be it. I would strongly recommend seeing if your mobo has any FSB holes that aren't stable regardless of settings--it's sometimes an issue, though I don't know if your board falls into that category.

Hey, that's a pretty nice rig I expecially like the CPU choice Good luck with the OC on that thing, it's a beast. To OC, start by lowering your HTT mult (stock value is 5x) to 3x. Then, pretty much everything else is just like Intel from what I hear. Just slow down the RAM, loosent timings, and OC the CPU like normal.

What is the difference between the regular and SE version of that mobo? Also, any reason why you chose to go with DDR2-675 instead of 800? 2 gigs of that stuff is so cheap these days.

Well. it was only $65, and 800 was $80
