Overclocking My AMD X2 4400+ Socket AM2.

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Ok i have an AMD X2 4400+ and a Abit KN9 SLI MoBo.
Im trying to overclock my cpu and so far ive been able to get it to 2.76 GHz.
i want to get it to 2.9 possibly 3.0 if possible.

Heres what ive got going so far.
Core Speed 2.76 GHz
Multiplier 11.5
Bus Speed 240
Core Voltage 1.4v
Memory Voltage 1.9v



any help on what i might need to do to get my speeds higher would be highly appreciated

and if you need any more info tell me.

First of all, try to down the HT link..might limit u at that speed.
Also downing the memory timings..to.. 5\\5\\5\\15 or so

I would up the volts a bit moar, my voltage is at 1.48 V at 2854MHZ stable but i have tried everything to go higher(without bsod'ing) and it just wont have it. But remember, cpu's have inequalities in the manufacturing process so you might be able to get more (or less) out of you cpu. My HT link is at 5 btw.

Watch the cpu temp if u up the vcore..especially if u run stock cooling...

Your not going to get 3ghz, its very rare to have on a G1 version. You also don't mention what cooler your using, if its stock then your probably closing in on your limits. If its better you might be able to get 2.9ghz with some more voltage, lowering HT, you may even have to raise NB/SB voltage.

I agree, please let us know what cooling you're using. X2's can take 1.500v safely as long as you have proper cooling. That should squeeze another 50-100MHz out of the CPU most likely.

It's difficult to say if the CPU is whats causing you to be unable to push the reference clock further because your HT Link is overclocked to 1200MHz and your memory might be under stress at a command rate of 1T. I would change the command rate to 2T and lower the HT multiplier to 4x and see if that gives you more headroom. If not you can always put them back.

If thats where you got to I would be happy, G1 stepping is just not that amazing. A few cpus could get to 3.0ghz maybe 3.1ghz but they require a monster high end board, and awesome cooling and usually 1.55v.

What are your temps at full load during an Orthos stress test? 1.45v and stock cooling is probably running a little bit warm. It's a good idea to keep temps below 55*C but I'd definitely keep them below 60*C. I'd also recommend tightening your timings to 4-4-4-12-2T if you leave it at 2.9GHz, your memory should be able to handle that. You might also consider loosening the tRC to 24, this can sometimes add stability to a Brisbane.
