Bogeyone001, most brand computers if not all have a proprietary BIOS that doesn't include overclocking settings. Your better off swapping that board out with an aftermarket one that would allow these types of changes.

Hope that helps

ok thanks
seeing as the chip is only a single core and not worth much is there any other way?

Bogeyone001, can you explain in more detail on what you mean? For overclocking you could throw the processor into another compatible motherboard that allows for overclocking(includes the available options in the BIOS). You could also fold on the machine if you wanted to. I still think it's pretty sweet your buddy found a machine on the side of the road

Good luck

how are you guys getting 2.4+ on a 3800+x2 manchester? mine won't hit 2.3 without not posting right now im sitting at 1.38 vcore and 2.2ghz
post #8476 of 28692
It could have to do with your RAM settings. Do you have any info on that? That way other (more experienced than I) people would be able to help.

DDR 400 with a stock timing set of 4-4-7-10? I am dubious. If you can open for us please CPU-Z and get us a screen shot of the CPU, Memory, and SPD tabs that would be helpful. (It also has the precipitated side effect of getting you into the club should you wish to be so.)

Thread Starter 
After much testing over the last couple of days, I have decided to abandon my quest for an S&M-stable 3.00GHz OC with the sig rig. I have tried so many changes to settings, as well as have seen far too many BSoDs than I care to ever see for a while, during my stress testing. Not only that, but I have not been able to use this machine for its intended purpose during all that testing.

There was even a time when I thought that I had bricked my RAM. Fortunately, after restoring "known good" settings, I'm assured that the RAM is still healthy. I thought that I had lost a second set of RAM to S&M.

Anyway, an S&M-stable 2.90GHz is still 100MHz more than my previous best. I'm pretty happy to be able to extract that extra speed. I still can't honestly say I can tell the difference between 2.8GHz and 2.9GHz (or even 3.0GHz from 2.8GHz), but it's still some kind of personal accomplishment.

The processor itself is a horse. It can definitely run all day and all night at 3.0GHz. The weak point is the RAM, or how I've got it set up. I toyed with the idea of just slapping on a higher divider on the RAM and have it run at DDR400 (it was at DDR500 when the CPU was clocked at 3.0GHz), but the RAM bandwidth figures were around 2000MB/s down from DDR500 (and the DDR482 I've got right now). Since I personally can't detect the difference between 2.9GHz and 3.0GHz at the keyboard level anyway, I just decided to set the system up in the most balanced fashion possible and settled in at 2.9GHz.

Just for posterity, though, here is my CPU-Z validation of one of my 3.0GHz configurations. (Yes, I experimented with the HT Link Speeds as well by changing the HT Link Multiplier; there was no discernible effect on the system's stability as far as I can tell.)

Is the Rated FSB of 1200 what you mean by HT Link? I was under the impression that any value over 1050 would for sure cause instability. By no means am I trying to point out any problems you may be having with your Overclock. I’m still trying to understand the fundamentals with the do’s and don’ts of Overclocking. This is why I ask about the Rated FSB @ 1200
