Want to OC just my CPU - Page 3

post #21 of 127
Thread Starter 
So I just did my first overclock. No one told me how addicting this is! I didn't go too far, just messed around with my 4800+ and got it to 2.73 at stock voltages from 2.5. The cool thing was that my 3dmark 06 score went from 9600 to 10400. Played a bit of cod4 as well, seems to run great. Can't wait till my 6000+ comes tomorrow!

One other thing, how do you post up those big screenies I see in other threads?
post #23 of 127
Yeah man... overclocking can be quite addictive! As far as posting the screenshots, just go to advanced reply, then manage attachments, and upload your screenshot that way.

While I'm thinking about it... what kind of cooling will you be using on this 6000? These chips are not easy overclockers and tend to max out around 3.4Ghz. On stock cooling I wouldn't expect you to get much further than 3.2-3.3Ghz stable.

Thanks for the screenie advice, I see what ya mean there. As far as cooling, it's going to be stock for a little while, but I am planning on ordering a better cooler if I can find a decent one I dont have to pull my board to install. Any thoughts on that?
post #25 of 127
I wouldn't worry too much about pulling the board. That is a minor pain in the @$$ compared to the benefits of a better cooler. Past recommendations are usually the thermalright ultra extreme (TRUE) and tuniq tower 120. However, recently the new XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 has been getting great reviews. Personally I would go with the xigmatek as it has the best price/performace ratio.

I see the image you want to insert is hosted on the web? I was assuming you had it saved on your computer. If you're doing it by web host, then see the button with the mountains next to the link button? Just click that and insert the address.

On your higher cache question.
It does translate to better performance, but its mostly use full under high loads.
So, with dual vid cards it will likely help when the demand is up.

The only way to see it would be to clock the current CPU and benchmark, then clock the new higher cache CPU at the same speed and bench to compare.

The HS and removing the MB...
I've used the the TRUE with the stock support with out any issue and I had a very heavy high volume fan on it on both my AM2 and AM2+ MBs.

EDIT:
Your CPU-Z shot...
Note the HT speed, the default is 1000. Most good AM2 AM2+ with a DC CPU can run in the 12-1300 range just fine. But if you do get instability when load testing, try dropping the HT multiplier from 5x (or 1000 in some BIOS) to 4x or 800.

Also, check the CPU-Z "Memory" tab to see where your RAM is actually running, its a good reference.
There are safe voltage increases you can make on the RAM to improve its overall top stable speed too.

Yeah, I did that and it just inserted a link, i'll try it a couple different ways. Also, thank so much you guys for all the advice! Added the screenie via manage attachments.

NP man. You'll find that a lot of people on OCN are very helpful. We all share the love for computers and it always feels good helping somebody out. Hopefully someday you will help others too.

He's saying that once you start getting unstable with increasing your overclock, you can try changing the HT multiplier in the bios from the default of 5x to 4x. Some chips are kind of picky with their HT link settings so it might help to change it. He's saying that these chips are usually stable up to about 1200, but if for some reason yours is not, try dropping it.

After changing your settings, you should run load tests, which usually consist of orthos. Watch your core temps with coretemp and make sure it's not going above around 55C. If the system is unstable, orthos will give you warning messages.
