Overclocking AMD Athlon 64 x2 3600+ Brisbane w/ ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe + Water Cooling

post #1 of 92
Thread Starter 
Hello I finally got my computer fixed and bought another CPU while at it. I want to know what is the highest and safest stable overclock I can do with my motherboard, CPU, and cooling. I also need help from someone on doing this.

These are how-to guides.
As always, don't push 60c, and more importantly 1.55 volts (absolute MAX, best stay under 1.5). The highest I've gotten with the 3600+ is 3GHz@1.525v (barely Windows stable) on nF570. I've seen nF550 boards get the 3600+ 3GHz stable though. From what I've heard, the best are 550>520>500>590>570.

The highest safest is the one that is stable with max load temps under 55C ish. High vcore can shorten the life of the CPU, buut most people that WC aren't looking for longevity I would guess 3.2-3.3 as I have never seen a brisbane on water. Each chip is different, YMMV.

What info are you basing your max vcore recommendation on? I have run plenty of stability tests at 1.65. It is all in relation to temp. (with-in reason) All the standards go out the window with H2O. I would post this in the WC section to get advice.

not to put a downer on your setup but you probably didnt need water cooling to get this chip to its maximum overclock as most brisbanes wont go much past 3.1GHz unless ridiculous voltage is used like 1.55v and over which will kill the chip quickly anyway. heat isnt as much of an issue with these chips, its just the natural limit under the 65nm process at the moment(until amd perfect it, if they are going to) mine will go to a very maximum of 3128MHz 100% stable. anything above requires silly voltages in my case 1.5625v (the max my mobo will give) my load temperatures at this clock are 48oC so temperature isnt the issue

Well if I can only go up to 3GHz on safest then it's fine please someone help me as my motherboard is made for overclocking so it has all these weird options that get specific.

I'm basing it on my neighbor toasting a Brisbane 4000+ at 1.6v. Lower voltage can also be more stable (and less damaging) because of reduced electromigration.
Read the Ultimate Overclocking Guide in the link I posted above.

If I can get up to 3GHz without touching the voltage then i'm happy.

its quite simple just dont go daft with the vcore if you go above 1.5v you'll be in the zone of killing the chip quite quickly regardless of cooling because of electromigration as the flying wallaby said
edit: i got 2.8ghz on stock volts but mine is a 45w energy efficient chip. i think the 3600+s on average can get up to 2.5 to 2.6ish on stock volts under good cooling( which you have )

2.6 stable for me on stock cooler, 3.02 on freezer 64 pro, @ 1.5v load temp of 50c
