Virgin Overclocker - Need Veterans Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So here it is...another noob pleading for help. I have done some research on oc'ing as well as general construction of my very own pc put together myself!

So I finally got the balls (and my "economic stimulus" check) to rebuild my aging gaming pc.

Last night I got all my parts, and went to town. It turned out to be a blast and after all was said and done, I turned on my pc (with my two used hdd's) and it actually turned on and booted windows! Beginners luck is true.

Anyways, now that I pretend I know what I'm doing...I want to dive into oc'ing...although I want to stay in the very shallow end.

Heres my current specs...thanks newegg I love you:

I know they aren't the top products in the entire world, but for my setup/money it seemed pretty damn good to me.

Anyways, the joy and beauty of the amd black edition is the unlocked multiplier...which as of now means little to me...after reading many articles, it basically seems like a push to OC it right out of the box.

Which leads to the obvious question...HOW? I don't want to do anything hardcore here, and want to start small. With the black edition though it seems silly not to try!

I know you can delve much deeper than this but it seems like the perfect place to start. If anyone could be so kind to help me out with even a general idea of how to begin my life as a rookie oc'er I'd greatly appreciate it.

Other than accessing the BIOS im clueless. I'm not a moron though, and have a lot of knowledge with pc software and can obviously put together the hardware to a certain extent.

My oc life is now in your hands gentlemen (and ladies). I thank you for your help.

Sorry I could have helped you more if it was an Intel CPU lol. However yes the unlocked multiplier will help to achieve higher overclocks. The RAM is good and won't hold you back for your OC.
But for the video card, most G92 8800GTS are really good for overclocking, I was hitting 775/1900/2050 on mine before I purchased my laptop!

Thanks for a reply...do I access this "multiplier" through the bios and then slowly adjust it upward?

If you don't know its cool...as for my videocard...any tips on how 2 oc it or shall I just stick with the my processor.

It seems like the entire reason to buy the black edition is that its almost a free upgrade to almost an x2 6000 amd by putting the multiplier higher...

Now if I could only find out how the f to do so haha.

Well, the Multiplier increase would give a big speed boost, but it isn't as gradual as a FSB bump. Look at the Stickies in the AMD section, and there should be a few threads about how to OC for beginners.

Most everything will be done through the BIOS in order to get a decent OC. Here is what I would do.

Go into the BIOS, and switch all of the OCing controls to manual. Then, manually set all voltages and speeds to stock. You CPU should say on the box what stock voltages are, and your RAM should have stock Timings and Voltages listed in the Specs. Really, though, you would be best off to read the How To Sticky, and it will get you a good start.

Check this out. It should tell you everything you could ever want to know about how to OC:
