AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ Club! - Page 134

post #1331 of 1595
I'd love to get this club started again. I'd make a list of top overclocks, how to overclock the 6000+, as well as other useful information.

I'll probably stick with my trusty 6000+ for at least a year. This processor is da bomb.

Speaking of over clocking, i added in the cpu cooling i think thats right this time. lol
So what ya think about the temps and will i be able to OC when they are lower?

THanks...

I got a friend that read on my Processor he read that not a full load but a fair load would run about 67c and it says thats about normal. So i guess a full load would be over 70c but iv'e never seen it go higher then 60 65c, but thats just one peace of info from what source he read, i do not know. lol
Listen. If you want our help, you're going to have to listen to what we've said. These temps are NOT normal. If you continue to run your chip with those temperatures you run a high risk of having it die on you. You need to reduce those temperatures in any way possible. Figure out what you are doing wrong, whether is be putting too much thermal paste on, or having poor airflow in your case.

To put things in perspective for you, I have the exact same chip as you, and I'm running 3.42 GHz @ 1.5 VCore, and yet I'm getting idle temps of ~29-32 C and full load around 50 C. Granted, my cooling solution is one of the best out there, so it's not horribly surprising. But you need to get your temperatures under control before you even THINK about overclocking more. Revert to stock (3 ghz) and see what temperatures look like, I'm betting it'll be still be in the warning zone (55-63 C and higher).

Ok first off i only posted what i said about my friend because i didnt believe his source is why i am sorry that that got lost in the translation, so again that was the only reason. I do not believe my temps should be that high neither and when i had it at stock 3.0 i got the same between 38 and 43 as i look at the temp gage now thats the reading i am getting when i play a game like GTA4 then it goes up to 60 to 65 and i know thats to high. Thats why when i did over clock this to 3.1 and i notice the temps still are the same i thought 'wow at least they are the same' although i know that is still to high. Now i have had this pc i built it a year and a half ago.
I really do not know what or how to lower the temps any more i will set things back to default and see again if they are still the same as you suggest, other then that i do not know how and thats why i am here, i read all these different post people help others do what i like to get done, to gain a good stable Over clocking. So to set the record straight i meant no disrespect at all, somehow what i said was just lost in translation, is all.

So if you still will help me out i would appreciate it and i will reset things back right now and let you know after a bit what the temps are then.

Thanks and again sorry for the miss communication.

Hey, it's no problem! I'm sorry if I came off as a bit rude sounding, it just seemed like you were listening more to what your friend was saying than us. We can figure this out!

Just to make sure, you have this case, right?
http://www.avadirect.com/product_det....asp?PRID=7806

If so it looks like airflow shouldn't be a factor here, from that huge fan in the front alone

I'm still not exactly sure which heatsink you have for your CPU, but from the description it sounds like a 120 mm tower, which is a good thing!

How did you apply your thermal paste? For a dual core, it is widely accepted that a small dab in the center of the cpu, about the size of a grain of uncooked rice, is the correct amount. However, if your cooler has HDT (Heat pipe direct touch), there are different methods to apply the paste for the best results. Is the bottom of your CPU cooler flat or does it have grooves, and can see the heatpipes on the bottom?

Please do not worry about that, it was just a misunderstanding.

Indeed that is my case but thanks god i didnt pay that much for it, it was a little less. lol

Any way yeah that case has 2 huge fans nice and roomy inside.

Here is a link they say a picture is worth a 1000 words. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835199005 thats what i put on the cpu and i put about a rice spec of artic cool 5 in the middle and then when i placed the heatsink on it, it then spread out to the edges of cpu with out going over the edge.

Ok i also went back to all stock setting i am back at 3.0, and i guess my memory faild me since its been over a year now that i bumped it to 3.1. I thought the temps were about the same but i see now it wasnt now they are CPU1 roughly 34 to 36 CPU2 roughly 29 to 33 and i just got out of GTA 4 and it was then at 52 to 57 more or less both cpu's.

Ok there you go i hope that links gives you all th info you need, just let me know what else i can tell you to help you understand my system. And Thank you so much....

Ok, your cooler wasn't exactly what I thought it was. The problem itself might just be that, as the 6000+ is a fairly hot chip, even at stock. If you're going to be wanting to overclock, I only have a couple suggestions that I think would honestly help. First, you can try reapplying your thermal paste, but instead of spreading it around, just put the rice grain sized blob in the center of the CPU, and then just mount the cpu cooler like normal. The pressure between the cpu and the cooler will allow the paste to spread evenly. I think it's possible that there may be air bubbles in your thermal paste now, that is why I am suggesting this. Also, if you decide to do this, make sure you thoroughly clean your CPU and the contact part of the heatsink (isopropyl alcohol, the higher % the better, works well here). If you need to, wipe clean with a lint-free cloth or a coffee filter.

If that doesn't work, and you are sure that your heatsink is snugly attached to your motherboard, I think the only thing you could do would be replace your heatsink with a better one. I originally thought your cooler was a tower, which is the standard at the moment for the best cooling solution. You can check out the air cooling forum for more information on that, you'll probably end up getting a Xigmatek product if you go this route as they are economical and perform close to the best.

Well i probably end up getting a new heat sink, cus in the back of my mind i have been thinking that may be the problem as far as the temps, so you suggesting a new 1 that just confirmed it what i had thought but was not sure. Just out of curiosity when that time is right, would updating my bios open up the option to raise my Vcore because right now it isn't selectable in bios it is like grayed out?

Not exactly sure on the BIOS question. If it's greyed out you most likely need to enable an "overclocking" option or something to that extent. Since you built your computer yourself I highly doubt that the option is locked, you might want to ask the guys over at the AMD motherboard section.

Yeah, good idea having a look around/asking questions here. Try hitting ctrl-f1 to get to advanced options and see if that helps your situation. If it doesn't un-grey your vcore, have a look around the advanced menus for an overclocking option like JadedFloridian mentioned.
If all else fails, you might need to flash your bios with a version that enables overclocking...
Good luck,
