HELP: First Time Overclocking X2 4000+ - Page 2

I ran the small FFT test earlier (While other programs were running ). Ran it for about 20 to 30 minutes. Checked the temperature in the bios afterwards. The CPU read 46*C, and the motherboard read 40*C. Where to now
well you're not getting the accurate temps. install coretemp and run orthos at the same time, it'll show you ur actual temps on the desktop. if ur running orthos stock and getting 46c i don't think u should be pushing any OC anytime soon unless u wanna make a fish fryer out of ur proc.

Umm...Is there a A64 X2 4000. I have never seen one. A64 X2 3800 //4200 // 4400 // 4600 // 4800. Never knew there was a X2 4000.

there is a 4000+ x2. and it OC's very nice.

to the OP download hardware monitor and run it and orthos at the same time. i've used coretemp, everest, speedfan, etc and out of all of them hardware monitor has the most accurate temps with my cpu

Yeah, standard out-of-the-box settings, no tweaks or anything.

OK, I'm running it right now. I see the difference here, as it gives me the temps of each core rather than the entire CPU. I'll post back in a bit, thanks!

Alright, just finished running Orthos (Small test mode as suggested) with Core Temp running, and after running it for about 20 minutes, core 0 read 30*C, and core 1 read 37*C.

I don't really trust CoreTemp anymore... Its site mentions that there is around +/- 15C innacuracy in temps because the processor's DTS isn't calibrated well. I personally feel more secure when basing my temps on Everest's higher readings.

edit: Looks like CoreTemp and Everest's per-core readings are almost the same. What worries me is that the raw CPU temp reading is twice as high as the per-core temps.

I don't trust any temperature reading software with a Brisbane CPU. The BIOS should give you a fair idea of the temperature though. The BIOS loads the CPU at about 60-80%. My X2 4000+ Brisbane read about 23*C in the BIOS with a GeminII and dual 120mm 80cfm fans. That seems a bit low as the room was probably 21-22*C. My 4200+ Windsor read 58*C at 100% load in Orthos on PC ProbeII with a stock cooler, which is pretty high. The Brisbanes run cooler, but I bet his 46*C he's reading in the BIOS is about right for a 60-80% load, maybe a bit on the high side.

I'd really recommend waiting until you can afford the $30 ($20 + shipping) for a decent aftermarket cooler. Once you get that you can overclock properly to 2.8-3.1GHz. Maybe take a look around the for sale section of this web site, see if there are any good deals on coolers. In the mean time, read up on overclocking and your CPU and motherboard.

If you really want to get started now, ok, but lock the CPU voltage at 1.30v and don't increase it. Set the CPU multiplier at 10x. Set the memory to DDR2 667. Set the timings to 4-4-4-12-24-2T. Set the memory voltage to 2.1v. Set the HT multiplier to 5x. Try increasing the reference clock to 220MHz. Run Orthos blend test for 2 minutes. If you can make it past that, reboot and increase the reference clock to 230MHz. Repeat Orthos test, if you pass, reboot and set the reference clock to 235MHz. Repeat Orthos test, if you pass, reboot and set the reference clock to 240MHz. Now try running Orthos overnight. Come back and let us know if you were able to get that far.
