P.S. There is a new CPU-Z out that recognizes the new BE series.
Darn...just realized it

I set it higher a day ago and looks stable! Did not test it yet but at 3ghz it's just below 1300mhz

Yep, it does nothing for RAM performance but seems to effect OCing on a positive note.

Running orthos at 1576mhz HT link and seems like it may be OK. Also looks like my temps dropped a few degrees

Edit: Made a thread showing people how far they can push it

I got BE-2350 and biostar ta690g am2 I got mines to 3004 mhz @ 1.3+0.175volt= 1.475v but could be lower. How much is a safe max voltage to go to?

Depending on your cooling I would say 1.5v but I personally used 1.7v to get above 3.2ghz

Shifty, great job!! Thanks for your detail explanation for your overclocking. I also have a be-2300 and eager to try to overclock. However , I can't get past anything higher than 270fsb.

I tried to have 280 fsb & 3x HT, but it wasn't able to boot into windows no matter how I pump the CPU voltage. I found that I need to disable Cool'n'quiet in order to boot into windows. I think it's because Cool'n'quiet would lower the CPU voltage and make the system unstable.

Do you have similar problem? I want to overclock but I do need Cool'n'quiet though.

My laptop (T7200 Intel) does 1M in 27 seconds. This kills my dreams of having my OC'd system I haven't even finished putting together yet beat my laptop. Sigh.

Comparing a intel with 4mb cache to a AMD cpu with superPI is not really valid. With real world benches a AMD OC'ed to 3ghz will do around 30 sec superPI but will own in real life apps and benchmarks

That was put very well, it makes me not regret my purchase!

Hopefully I can get to 3Ghz too.
