overclocking amd athlon 64 x2 4400+ 2.3ghz - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Great advice in here so far guys, keep up the good work.

Just to clarify a few things. While brisbanes core temps are almost always off, usually their CPU temp is pretty close. Finding the CPU temp can be tricky sometimes, but the easiest way to do it is by starting a temp monitoring program, and then starting a stress test. Whichever temp jumps up alot, thats your CPU (we're talking like 20 degree jump).

You can also use you're BIOS to get a rough idea of your temp, but we'll save that for later.

I agree with the fact that since every chip and every system is different, you should find your own OC... but having others configurations is helpful to know "roughly" where you should get.

From my experience (with my 4600 brisbane) anything up to about 2.8GHz is doable on stock voltage, and for me to hit 3GHz, it takes 1.4v.

Good luck

Good work, with a little more tweaking you should squeeze a ltiile more out of it, but this is where it takes a lot of time and patience.

i was thinking of getting more of it , as u said overclocking is addicting , i think im in that circle , what u think of overclocking it to 3.2, HT 3X memory 533 ,

I need help too for overclocking this cpu, is it possible with my motherboard?

Well it seems you've already started on it that way, so i dunno about that at this point... The Athlon X2 4400+ Brisbane is a 65W TDP proc with an nominal operating voltage range of 1.200V ~ 1.250V and it's maximum operating temperature is 72Cs. You should have first proceeded by burning in the processor at Stock Clock [2.2Ghz] and at lowest possible operating voltages. Any 65W TDP Brisbane Athlon X2 at all {even a 5000+ etc} should be able to operate at even just 1.1000V at 100% CPU Load w/o blue screening IF properly burned-in at that voltage. Lesser voltage such as 1.075V may cause blue-screening already despite the {unquestionable} stability of your PSU.

However, what's done is done- so i do suggest doing everything all over again step-by-step. First download a copy of Prime95 Software for purposes of processor burn-in. Then set the CPU Voltage to 1.100V thru your mainboard's BIOS- if indeed it can be adjusted to that voltage level [am personally unfamiliar with that model of Gigabyte board]. Then properly burn-in the processor w/ Prime95 on "In-Place FFTs" for max heat etc. whilst using your computer Windows 7 [use as you would regularly] for about an hour, keeping close watch of CPU Temps at 100% CPU Load. Just in case your Athlon X2 4400+ actually blue screens while burining it in, just raise the CPU Voltage by an additional increment of 0.025V or just 25mV {25 millivolts}- until it does not blue screen during burn-in.

Once you have properly burned in the processor {ie. it did not blue screen} at a specific CPU Voltage, that particular voltage rating should serve as your nominal operating voltage at it's Stock Clock of 2.2Ghz and should baseline any Overclocked Voltage on this nominal operating voltage. Raising clocks DOES NOT automatically require increasing that nominal operating voltage UNLESS your computer blue screens at that voltage while burning it in at the raised or Overclocked Processor Speed. Bytheway, just burn it in for 20 to 30mins on the OC'd ratings- after all the processor has already been previously burned in properly, and we'd just be checking for system stability at this point. If on the other hand IT DOES blue screen on while OC'd, just raise the CPU Voltage again by mere increments of 0.025Vs UNTIL you have a stable OC'd system. With a Brisbane, it's better to leave the multiplier at x11 w/c is the Stock Multiplier Setting while raising the FSB by additional increments of 5Mhz and test the system for stability; if the system proves stable at your inputted CPU Voltage, then you can test for stability at that very same CPU Voltage Setting but with an additional 5Mhz on the FSB.

Following this step-by-step method of OCing and Stability Testing, you should be able to reach a Stable Overclock with approximately the following settings below:

Overclocked Processor Speed: 2.53Ghz
FSB: 230Mhz
CPU Multiplier: x11
CPU Voltage: 1.325V approx or LESS
CPU Temp at 100% CPU Load: approx 45C at around 30C Room Temperature

Note that these settings amount to just a 15% Overclock. I would say any OC beyond that or taking it any higher levels than that will now require experience in "experimentation" of any variations of any or other of these settings above. Also please do note that results like that are with the use of the X2 4400+'s AMD Stock HSF - using a AMD Phenom X4 955BE's Stock HSF [w/ 4 copper heatpipes + copper base] will give CPU Temps of just about 40Cs at Room Temps of 30Cs more-or-less.
