First time overclocker looking for help: AMD 3000+

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I've done my best to research up before my first post so that you won't need to ask too many follow-up questions. Thanks in advance for your help.



A handy link to my WCPUID. http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...yProcessor.jpg

Summary facts:
1800 internal clock, 200.93 system clock and bus speed, and 9.0 multiplier.


Additional information that might be helpful

RAM: 2048 Ultra. (Quality wise is supposedly comparable to top end Corsair and Kingston) http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...0&Sku=ULT31664

Motherboard- NF-CK804

Video Card: GeForce 6800

Resting CPU temp:97
HDD temp:104
System temp:88

What I know to do so far

Reading around, for this particular processor it sounds like I lower the multiplier and increase the clock speed, keeping their values when multiplied together constant.

What I need help with

Confirmation that this indeed the correct thing to do.

Suggestions on what increments to test by.

Suggestions on how to test if the change is working alright. The links to the suggested programs did not work in the areas where I found them mentioned.

Anything else you can think of.


Thanks a ton for your help!

Since FSB (clock speed) x Multiplier = CPU speed, raising one and lowering the other, and keepring the multiplied values constant will not overclock your CPU.

200 x 10 =2ghz
250 x 8 = 2ghz. ...they are the same.

You raise the FSB a little and test. If that's OK, the you raise it a little more.

But..... memory speed = FSB x divider, so when you raise the FSB to speed up the CPU, you are also speeding up the memory. The problem is that when a test fails you won't know which is overclocked too much, the CPU or the memory.

You have to isolate the Motherboard, CPU, and memory with multipliers and dividers and overclock each separately. Then, when you know what each can do separately, you put then all together onto an overclock.

Read some guides, it's easy.
