Hi, thanks for the tip. I have done as you said and the ram speed looks better now.

I've taken this cpu up to just under 3.0ghz before and it was stable. This was with the bus speed set to 220. My only issue is I worry about the HT link speed (or "rated fsb"- as it now says in CPUZ). I'm new to OCing, so don't know if it matters or not. I googled but couldn't find a definitive answer.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated- thanks!

Well i have got the 720 x3 running like a dream now thx to Gyro and found the process quite easy tbh with little problems using 2209. One thing i would say is to bin the stock cooler and get something a bit more meaty. the zalman cnps10x albiet a bit fiddly to install fits perfect for a top fan set up mobo 36c pro 42c at load and wisper quiet. One downer just bought 8gb of ddr2 800 cas 4 and then looks at mem config and see you can use ddr2 1066 oh well cannot win them all i suppose. On the positive i have now stretched this mobo out until next year when new amd comes out and usb 3 and sata 6gb will be much more available hopefully find another mobo with the life span of this one....thx once again gyro i cpu z soon for your stats...

Hi all,

First of all I just wanted to say how surprised I am about the support for this motherboard.
When i brought this board some years ago I only really brought it because of the Asus name (never had a problem with their products) and because of the good reviews.
Some years later and the board is still going strong and even with some excellent updates to the bios enabling support for new processors.


Anyway...

The other week I was planning to do a complete system upgrade but then noticed that their was a new update available which would support for the newer processors.

updated the bios no problems - all is good.

Then noticed a Athlon X4 620 going for a nice price and again heard great things about this chip as well as its overclocking ability.

So brought the chip and installed onto mobo - no problems all working great


Right now though i'm curious about overclocking (given how great this chip is meant to be in regard to overclocking).

Anyone attempted overclocking these new athlons on this board?

Hi all and welcome to any new member request's. I'll get you on the roster when I get some more time and get to feeling better. I think I have either a cold or an infection or even worse maybe both because of this I have not been feeling so well lately. Additionally a lot has been going on in my life the last month or so and this has caused me to be scarce as of late. I will get all the new members up on the club roster shortly.

Thank you to all our members who make this a great club to visit for information pertaining to our mobo's.

Hi again,

Thanks for the welcome folks. much appreciated.


Well I've attempted my first ever overclock ! yea


My Results are below













From the screenshots above does everything look okay.

Is there anything in particular that I've done incorrectly at all ?

Thanks folks - (the help is very much appreciated )

I did unclock my ram to ddr2 667 in bios (instead of 800) do you think i should have kept it to 800 and overclocked it?

my system spec is below
