Hi I know its not the newest cpu know but I would like to overclock my Athlon Barton Core 3200
It runs at 2.2 at the momnet and my computer seams slow. My system memory is 2048 ddr 3200.
Whats settings should I set my motherboard on to get the best speed out my cpu? What speed can this cpu do and still be stable?
I have changed my cooler and want to see what speed I can get it to.

Thanks for all your help and advice

well, really, with 2g of ram i would say get another proc but if you wana OC then cool.
I read 2.5Ghz is the max for that proc, just got to bios and up the FPS (leave it on X12 though) and watch your ram also

Thanks so much for your reply.
I would be happy with 2.4 I dont want it to fry!
What should I set my fsb on my cpu to? the max on the auto is 200mhz on manual I can take it to what I want.
What should I set my memory MHZ to?

Change it to manual and FSB (front side bus) should be set to 200, up this by lets say 10 then after that go up in 5's then get smaller as you get closer to your target.
download CPU-Z, this program should show you your processor speed and more helpful overclocking info, this way you can monitor your overclocks (CPU and RAM).

Your memory should be at 400mhz, i wouldnt push it too much tbh, with my value ram i could only get it to like 420, but each ram is different, loosen the timings (like cal latency, tras etc), if your unsure how to do this its easy to read up on.
The higher the number the more headroom you ram has, like CL3 is looser than CL2.5.

IF you get stuck on your proc and want to push it futher then up the voltage, but be very careful on this and always reasearch your processor to see if it can handle the voltage.

Sorry im not too good at explaning myself.

sure you just don't have spyware, or any kinda :swearing: like that? try CCleaner and/or Ad-Aware, I run them at least once a day and Defragment at least once a week, thats just me

Hi no it has no spyware and has no background applications running.
I always store all my data on the extra sata drive. The main c drive is only
3gb used.
Thanks for all the information I will see if I can get 2.4ghz
