Anyone with this system can help?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I need a little one to one with beginning to OC my CPU. I have read the forum posts but am still very scared about having to make another dent in my wallet and am still having trouble taking it all in lol. So if anyone has this system and has a stable OC with it and would like to help me out that would be great. I thought that a SS of CPU-Z would be easier than to write it all down.



So there it is. Any help would be great

LOL, your topic sounds like Yoda

Anyway, Best place to start is always the Bios. Go in there and make sure that anything that relates to voltages is set to a number, and not to "Auto"

For your CPU 1.35 and for your Ram, 1.9. Those are the typical numbers.

If you have a North Bridge, South Bridge, or FSB voltage (Any other voltages), just set them to the lowest setting you can. Then reboot your system.


Oh!!! (pay attention to this) figure out how to reset your Bios settings with the comptuer off. It could be you don't have to do anything. I know that my Asus is like that, but i'm not sure if the AMD Asus's are like that. It is very likely that you'll change settings too high and that your system won't post (Happens to everyone). When that happens, you need to reset your Bios back to default. Figure out how to do that by reading your manual.

Write back once you get the voltages set.

Don't worry, basically anyone here that runs DDR2 ram can help you out here.

Ok

This is what i have it set to, i.e. the lowest.

CPU Volatge Range 1.35 - 1.45 (this could have gone lower but you said to set the actual voltage to 1.35)
CPU Voltage 1.35 (obviously)
DDR2 1.9
HT Link Voltage 1.2
NB Core Voltage 1.2
SB Core Voltage 1.5
SB PLL Voltage 1.5

There were some option underneath this as follows but i did not recognise them so i left them for the minute.

DDR2 Termination Voltage (Auto)
" " Controller Ref Voltage " "
" " Channel A Ref Voltage " "
" " Channel B Ref Voltage " "

Just start Increasing the FSB and maybe run Orthos a bit to test stability.

Vcore = CPU voltage

EDIT: It's understandable that you're nervous about hurting expensive equipment, but if you take the overclock slow and keep checking for stability, it's going to be very hard to hurt any hardware. Orthos and Memtest86 will show errors and Windows will crash LONG before any damage can be done to your parts. Damage to parts from overclocking usually comes from giving the part WAY too much voltage or from long term damage from elevated voltage and high temperatures. To avoid these two issues, talk to people here and research your parts to find out what the appropriate voltage levels are, and make sure your CPU doesn't exceed 55C under load. And trust me, 55C is conservative. My 4200+ was running at 58C under load for an entire year with stock cooling before I bought my Zalman, and it's still running like a champ.

When your increasing the Vcore and FSB do this in small changes at a time and then Run Orthos for at least 30 minutes to an hour each time to ensure that the temps are not getting to high and your system remains stable. If all is ok after each Orthos test, increase and go again but remember everytime you increase the Vcore your temps are going to raise, esp during the Orthos stress tests. Good luck . If you get to a stage where Orthos wont run or your system hangs just revert back to your last stable setting.

Yes. It will change the voltage for both cores.

Just to make sure, you do have a program that checks temps right?
