Overclocked AMD 5200+ 2.6Ghz to 2.99Ghz, no diff??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi

I finally got around upping my FSB to 230 on a (x13) Multiplier.
I also increased the Vcore to 1.4V. ok fine it booted well @ 2.99Ghz.
My core is a BRISBANE 5200+ btw.

NOW 2 ISSUES:

1.) Its idle temp is of both cores is ~ 35C which sounds ok,
but when i was encoding a movie with VSO ConvertX2DVD the temp went up exponentially to 63C which got me worried and i dropped the FSB to 225 and Vcore @ 1.385V which set it @ 2.90Ghz

2.) Biggest issue....I extracted a 700mb file before the OC and it took about 35secs. When i O/C'd it to 2.99Ghz, ude think it will give it a push.... experimented with 4 different 700mb rars...some took 35sec / 40sec/ 30 secs/ the point is that why hasnt it advantaged me? or atleast provided a difference in performance? and Computer starts nothing quicker

Ive got a highly clockable mobo: ASUS M3A, running stock cooling, 2GB-DDR Kingston-800s, ATI HD3850, and the Brisbane X2 5200+ (x13) + SATA WD 320GB
Do you think its because i didnt overclock/touch the RAM settings/frequencies?

This is a brisbane chip right? agh! google next time please, its the temp monitoring programs your using, the brisbanes dont like alot of temp programs and are very often incorrect.

Check the BIOS temp,if its accurate it will reflect 80% of the full load.

Did you enough thermal paste?
Did you use to much?
Have you tried reseating it?
With AS5... has it been more than 4 days of 24/7 running?

Duke.

I think i used alot of thermal paste, i had the tube which was half full, i used the whole thing thinking it will cool it more.

Is 65C while encoding (heavy load) ok for the CPU?

Definitely you used too much thermal paste. Take the cooler off, remove the paste, re-apply (if you have any more) and then re-seat the cooler. If you don't have any more thermal paste, just remove enough so you only have a thin, thin layer over the IHS and then go with that.

Using too much thermal paste isn't good because it can't transfer heat from the IHS to the heat sink. I'm sure that's why your load temps are so high as your idle temps seem ok.

Just wipe most of it off. Leave a little bit, enough to spread evenly over the IHS VERY thin and then re-seat the heatsink and you should be ok.
