AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ Club! - Page 131

Blue, in order to get a higher CPU clock you use one stick of RAM and underclock it (as well as loosen the timings). This removes any unstability the RAM might have been causing and you can really up your CPU clock.
If you are going to benchmark, though; you want to have all your sticks of RAM in and find the best balance you can between RAM performance, CPU clock and stability.
Regards,
Powelly.

Yea I might take all the RAM out but 1 stick, just for sh**s & giggles to see if I can hit 3.6GHz. But yea, I am getting into benchmarking, so I will end up putting all the RAM back in after wards to gain the best performance balance across the board.

I have been steadily tweaking with things here and there running test/Orthos over and over seeing what I can do with it for the last few days now.

Here is a screen shot of what I am shooting for right now - 3.48GHz @ 1.475V

I have it set to 1.475V in BIOS, not sure why AI SUITE reads 1.53V, Speedfan reads 1.54V, and CPU-Z reads 1.55V.... But Orthos has been running for over a hour now with no problems. As long as she's stays stable through Orthos for another 8+hrs, I will shoot for 3.49GHz (stable) tomorrow.


I thought I would share this one with you all also. Thought you might like to see it......I know I did - 3.584GHz @ 1.50V

Both of them Overclocks were done with up to 1.50V (core voltage) being the only voltage changes being made. Everything else set at default.

Nice to see there is a club for the Athlon 6000 X2 here!

I went and purchased the 3GHz 6000+ X2 about 4 months ago after I damaged my 4200+ X2 when I went to install it in my new motherboard, I accidentally bent a bunch of pins when I tried to put it into the socket, and when I attempted to straighten them a couple of them snapped off!!!

Though I am quite glad that I did buy the 6000+ X2 because I got a nice improvement in performace all round...

I have only recently started trying to overclock it, and my best so far is 3.45GHz, I can get it to post @ 3.5GHz but when I attempt to put it under stress using Orthos it stops running after about 30 seconds... My PC doesn't crash or anything, Orthos just stops running, and leaves me on my desktop...

I wondered what would be considered the maximum amount of voltage that I could give my processor, because when I was o/cing, I first tried it at 3.5 with the stock voltage in my BIOS of 1.3v, and it just refused to post completely, but I went back into the BIOS and set the voltage to 1.45v and this allowed me to boot into Windows, but like I said it wouldn't allow me to run Orthos for more than 30 seconds without it stopping...

I dont really want to give it more voltage until I know what most people who are overclocking these processors would consider safe, because I dont have the money right now to replace my CPU if I end up frying it!!!

I did start reading through this thread, but there are 131 pages of posts, and it would take me all day to sift through all the comments to see what you guys consider safe...

Thanks in advance folks...

::Edit::

Here is a screen of my 6000+ X2 posting at 3.5GHz on air:



I am just going to see if I can run any benchies with this o/c... I set my voltage to 1.55v this time, and my idle temps are only about 2C higher than they are at the processors stock speed...

Hi, and welcome to the AMD X2 6000+ Club AND Overclock.net!
That's a decent overclock you've got there, but I highly doubt you'll achieve it stable.
As for the voltage, most people consider 1.5v the maximum safe voltage for this CPU for 24/7 running. If you're benching or doing a suicide run you should be right to max out the voltage but don't leave it on 24/7.
Your temps are great, just remember the max temp for the Windsor is 55-63C as stated by AMD.

Good luck with your overclocking,
~Powelly.

I wouldnt go over 1.5V for the Brisbane models, and wouldnt go over 1.55V for the Windsor models.

Thanks for the comments guys..

I guess you are right Powelly, I just can't get it stable @ 3.5GHz, I don't want to take the voltage any higher than 1.55v as I am afraid of frying my CPU!!!

I personally think that it is my crappy mobo that is preventing me from getting stable overclocks.. I am going to be upgrading my CPU and mobo in the next 2 months anyway, so this board and processor will be going into my fiancee's PC, and she doesn't really do anything demanding on the computer so stock speeds will be just fine for her!

hey DankBudZ that´s a very good oc.. windsor holds more volt thant brisbane.. mine is 1.5v in bios altough cpuz says is 1.55v. im gonna try to use yours specs and see if i can keep it stable.. 14*250: 3.5ghz and the HT at 4x and your temps are way to low on air.. nice....
