Amd Athlon 64 3000+ Overclocking - Page 4

post #31 of 54
From what i've been reading.
You should be able to get at least 2.5GHZ out of that chip ^_^


still unfamiliar with the ACTUAL configuring (not the concept) of Dividers.
(so I was happy for that pic )
(I"ve never seen them with K7 rigs)

Good luck on your OC.

HG try this. Next time you run into a wall before you reload the bios and start over why don't you write down your bios settings and post them here. I think one of us will be able to pick through them and more accurately suggest a solution to the problem. You shouldn't have much problem getting 2.2GHz stable there and more so let's try that route and see if we can help.

And yes ATI tool will work for nvidia cards as well as ATI

I don't follow. Are you asking if you can use 8500s in an SLI setup and if so is it worth it?

sorry, I have a 8500 and is SLI capable, if I buy another one is it worth getting another one.

Well that's up to you in the end but I would do some research before jumping into that. If I were you and I was looking to upgrade my GPU performance I would sell that 8500 and then use the $$ you were going to put into a second one along with the $$ you made on the one you sold and just get a single faster GPU. The reasoning is this, although SLI is very attractive and such it doesn't always benefit your graphics performance as much as you would hope. In some cases it would be a great benefit but in others there will be very little impact. I say go with a faster single card solution where you will always see the GPU performing at it's max and I think you'll get your moneys worth. It just doesn't seem worth it to me to put 2 8500s in an SLI.

Take that info for what it is worth and it may be worth your time to check out Tomshardware.com; look at the GPU comparision table they have and see how much an sli will really net you in terms for graphics performance. Some of the benchmarks make it look very temping while others, not so much. Keep us up to date whatever u do though.

well, I just bought the 8500 so I can take it back, and I got it for 89 and the 8600 just went on sale for 109, so I figured get a second one or just return the 8500 and keep the 8600 for now and later on upgrade from there. ??? any thoughts?

I found this on a Guru3d review of a number of 8600 cards:
"Back to XP gaming. In all fairness the 158.14 driver offered an instant 10-15% overall improvement in performance compared to that 101.95 driver. That's nice but thing is, and this really is my biggest issue with GeForce 8600 series, the overall performance is still lacking a little. I think everybody expected the 8600 series to perform better in games. The GT is merely 15% faster than a 7600 GT in most scenarios; with the GTS performing at roughly 7900 GS or Radeon X1950 Pro performance. A Radeon X1950 Pro or 7900 GS for example will outperform the GTS in many scenarios and is a good amount cheaper. I can pick either one of them up here in the Netherlands for 150 EUR. Sure, these cards are not DX10 compatible but I think you'll see a lot of reviews today with exactly the same sentiment. Yours truly expected more performance. The 32 Shader cores and the choice of 128-bit memory are the responsible key issues here, and NVIDIA knows this. This is why the clock frequencies on the cards are so high."

My suggestion is that unless you have Vista (or are planning on getting it) and feel that you really need DX10 I would look for an older card that can match or excel the 8600 performance for a similar price. Some good solutions to look at may be the 7900 series on ebay or in the for sale part of the forums here.
