Download Orthos:

Run it on Small FTT stress cpu and see what your temps get up to. This will show us how much headroom you have for overclocking.

I used to have a 3000 that I overclocked to 2.5. I did have an aftermarket cooler though. It took some high volts to get there. I think it was a Zalman 7700 cooler. The thing was big as hell. I suggest you get a cooler then we can help you.

I have just done the following

I increased the Bus Frequency from 200 to 250 if I go to 260 it doesn't start
that caused the CPU frequency to go from 1800 to 2250.2
I then ran ORTHOS the temps was as follow after 10 minutes


Temp 1 33'C
Temp 2 48'C
Core 47'C

thanks

wow, thats pretty good.

Are you using the bios to overclock?

Also, what is your current voltage.

Hi

Well i thought it was to good to be true My PC is very sick now I have restored all defaults but still I have some issues

I suspect it has something to do with pcmark 4 that I installed I haven't even used it but after I installed it my system crashed and whith reboot it kept on saying RDLL32.exe failed I even tried to restore the suystem to an earlier date but all my restore points exept one is missing and the one that is there is for today so that doesn't help much either.
Is there any thing I can do or will I have to reinstall??
