AMD 4400+ Overclock

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a AMD 4400+ with a 2748 MHZ or about 2.75 GHZ clock and 1.5 volts on a M2N32-SLI MoBo. I can not seem to get any higher with out it being unstable or some times it will not even boot. Is there any thing i can do to get higher clock speeds and have it stable??

we'll try reseating hsf to keep it cool.

Can you post a picture of the cpuz main and spd tabs?

In general it seems like maybe your ram is limiting you, or your motherboard. What temps are you at? Maybe you're getting to hot at 1.5v.

For lots more information, try checking out the links in my sig.

Hmm. When you were increasing voltage you sure it was the problem for instability? With my 4400 I got to around 2.7 on stock voltage. Try other options for stability first, without going any further. Try lowering the HT multi, or if your ram is running to fast (CPU-Z would be useful) trying lowering its' speed to 667.

Keep us updated. Goodluck.

My bios says temp is 42C but CoreTemp 0.99 is saying 19C-Core 1 and 22-Core 2. I don't know which to belive. The heatsink is not hot and it's got plenty of airflow. the room is 70 degrees Fairheight. CPU-Z says ram is at 458.1 MHZ so my ram is runing at 916.2 MHZ. Is that to high? Will changing its speed to 667 MHZ get CPU speeds higher? I did not notice a diffance in proformance with old ram that was a 667 MHZ and new 800 MHZ ram so it might make higher clock speeds with it at 667.

What is this c&q in the bios?, where is it in the bios?

Look at your computer as a whole system. There are many things that can cause instability. If increasing your fsb makes things unstable, there are at least 3 possible reasons. The top three reasons would be: cpu is maxed, ram is maxed, mobo is maxed (since all three are directly linked to the fsb). If you want to go higher, you should do the best you can to eliminate potential problems such as ram and mobo instability. You can do this by decreasing your ram speed, increasing your ram voltage, increasing your chipset voltage and/or any combination of these.

Brisbane cores have been known for faulty temperature readings by software. Try using HW Monitor from CPUID, or Everest home edition. Also, whens the last time you flashed bios? Although its risky, sometimes the sensor needs a flash to tell you the right temps. Before i flashed bios it was telling me my temps were 50+.

Also that ram speed looks really high. Try lowering it to 667 ram then continue. As mentioned above, the RAM could be the issue; and it probably is since it's pretty high. At 667 ram your overclock will bring you back around 800 anyways.
as a matter of fact i had the same problem as you yesterday, and people were advising me the same thing; lowering the ram speeds seemed to fix it.

Good luck.

Edit- Cool And Quiet should be under Advanced Chipset features in BIOS, well thats where it is from me. If you cant find it, i noticed that turning vista power options to high performance disabled it, but i dont know what that will change so i dont recommend it.

Ok lowering the RAM speed to 667 got me to 2.81 GHZ at 244 MHZ FSB. The RAM is now only running at 800 MHZ and i lowered the V-Core to 1.45 Volts and its at no higher then 40C with CoreTemp after 1 hour of Prime95. I will post again if i get it higher thank you all.

He's got the right idea. Nice help +rep for you.

I wouldn't trust coretemp. As stated above, the brisbane is known to not read correctly using coretemp. Try a multitude of programs to get a better idea of your temps.
