Ok so I have tried and tried but I don't know what to change and how to change it. Every time my computer just wont boot up even with the slightest of changes and I have to reset the CMOS.

HOW???

Go to BIOS and adjust the FSB frequency...


Is your 6200 for sale now?

Oh the irony...

First, set your memory voltage to the recommended settings. Chances are, at default, your memory isn't getting as much as intended.

Then adjust your FSB in increments of 1-2 after each successful boot. After each non successful boot, increase your V-Core. Once you've reached a v-core of 1.5v, and it still doesn't stabilize, try raising your chipset 0.1 volts.

You shouldn't have to worry about memory dividers, seeing as how your ram is good up to a FSB of 333.

Ocing has many aspects that can be confusing...
The HT in particular...
It always matches the CPU from a default of 200MHz and up.
Unlike the RAM base speed which can be divided or reduced to speeds below 200!
Confusing those can screw people up!
The HT relative to the CPU (not the RAMs speed it self)
As the CPU is OCed, so does the HT... HT default is 200x5=1000
Anything over 1000 does nothing for RAM performance, but may actually add to stability.
939s, about 1110 is the max... some MBs even higher
AM2, 1200 ish works well and some MBs even do and like 1300-1500, go figure!
Now for the HT relative to the RAM it self.
If the RAM is set to the default speed and the CPU is OCed the RAM increas equally to the CPU OC or 1:1
If the RAM is set to a lower speed it has various effects on the CPU to RAM OC.
If the default speed of 200MHz is reduced to 166, the RAM not only starts out slower than the CPU @ 83%, the RAM only increases @ 83% for every 1 MHz the CPU is OCed. That "83%" is approximate in that it changes slightly dependant on the CPUs multiplier being used!

So, how do you get past all this.
Increase only the CPU bus speeds a small amount and test for instability with OCCT or Orthos until you boot to either screen anomalies or instability in the above stress testing programs.
Then try a CPU voltage increase of 1 increment... then perhaps two.
No help, then the RAM may be the issue...
Increase the RAM voltage but be sure its within safe levels.
No help, try a divider or set the RAM to the next lower speed... like DDR400 to DDR333 or DDR2 800 to DDR2 677.
The Chipset, HT controller also have voltage control which may need an increase, but only if needed and that a try and test method too!

HOW???
The first thing to always do when starting a new endeavor, whatever it is: Do your homework. Research and a little background knowledge go a very long way.

OCN hosts a good, succinct primer on overclocking. Eventually, though, you'll likely hunger for more knowledge (knowledge is very addictive to me, personally), so if I may, I'd like to recommend this very detailed and involved treatise into the dark art of AMD64 overclocking. I know it's for S754/S939, but the concepts involved are identical to AM2 as well; the numbers just need to be altered to suit DDR2 RAM.

Armed with the knowledge you glean from these, you should have a good base on which to build your overclocking adventures.

Good luck! And hope this helps.

. I was thinking the same thing.

I tell you what - YOU HAD BETTER LEARN TO!

You're name IS OVERCLOCK.
Have you ANY Idea, how previledged you are, to bear THAT name.
ON OCN?


You should be teh 1337est!
-so learn!


Lots of tute's about here man ^_^

No it is my dads, I was barrowing it.

Thanks for the information where do I find the recommended memory voltage?

The first thing you need to do is read and learn the BIOS!
Go in it and spend some time to look around, you need to be familiar with it! You can exit with out saving until you know what to change!
The Advanced Chip Set is the most used section of the BIOS for OCing!
BTW, ABIT, like DFI often refer to the Memory's HT as the "LDT"... usually but I'm unsure with there AM2 MBs.

Seeing as you have a 5200+ as well, this thread might help you understand a little bit more about the terms mentioned above.

We are all pretty busy, so the thread has been stalled for a while.
