Overclock from windows

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if there is any software for the ASUS K8V-X motherboard to overclock the CPU from windows? I tried the ASUS website and there is nothing official (Ai booster is what they use but doesn't support my model). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

The only "trustworthy" Overclocking that you can do is in the BIOS.

The K8V is not even a difficult board to overclock on, as it was the one I learned on. You should have no problem overclocking it from BIOS, which is the safest, stablest way to go. Just read up on some of the guides and keep posting with any specific questions you might have.

Well I've been overclocking from BIOS for awhile and it just gets annoying rebooting to go to bios and then back to windows to test stability. Right now I'm overclocking 300Mhz (AMD 64 3000+ from 2.0 to 2.3ghz) with voltage lowered to 1.37v from 1.5v and no increase in temperture and perfect stability (so far).

The best windows overclocking software is probably clockgen (www.cpuid.com)

Why would you lower your vcore and expect a temperature increase? If you leave it closer to 1.5 you will have a higher stable overclock. Also, you only have to test stability like once or twice. Overclock a little at a time (like 5mhz) and between each on boot to windows. When it no longer boots, then lower it 5 and then boot to windows and check stability. If it isn't stable, drop another 5 and do it again.

Eh clockgen kinda scaring . Not really sure how it works, and increases a value just 1 time makes my computer (coming from case) tick 3 times...No idea what the tick means...never heard that noise before.

Im not sure what that noise is
What are your temps at?
It is always best to use the BIOS to overclock a computer. I know it can get a bit annoying having to reboot all the time, then testing your settings but it is the best way and the most stable way.

Full load temp overclocked is about 47C, Idle temp (using cool n quiet) is 31C

i would shy away from cool n quiet i think it will ruin your oc from what i understand
